Key Active Ingredients
5-HTP is a naturally occurring precursor to the neurotransmitter serotonin, involved in central nervous system regulation of mood, appetite, pain and sleep. Low serotonin levels have been implicated in depression, anxiety, insomnia, overeating, headaches and migraines. Supplementation with 5-HTP can increase serotonin levels and therefore help alleviate these conditions. It is more effective than tryptophan (another serotonin precursor) in raising serotonin levels and more readily enters the brain. On entering the brain 5-HTP is converted into serotonin, which can then also be converted into melatonin – an important brain hormone also involved in sleep and mood regulation. 5HTP has also been shown to positively influence levels of other brain chemicals such as dopamine, norepinephrine and beta-endorphins. Studies have shown 5-HTP to be effective in the treatment of insomnia, depression, fibromyalgia, appetite reduction (particularly for carbohydrates) and weight loss, and migraines.
Passionflower has anti-spasmodic, sedative and anxiety-reducing actions, making it a popular herbal treatment for anxiety, insomnia and nervous tension. A study comparing Passionflower to pharmaceutical medication for the treatment of anxiety showed equally effective results for both treatments with no incidence of job impairment with Passionflower as opposed to the drug.
Jamaican Dogwood also possesses relaxing sedative, anti-spasmodic and anti-inflammatory actions making it useful for insomnia, nervous tension and headaches.
California Poppy is of benefit for alleviating insomnia, pain and anxiety.
Adults: take 1 to 3 capsules, 1 hour prior to retiring or as professionally advised.
Deep sleep™ is not a tranquilliser and will not have ‘hangover’ effects or induce sleep if taken during the day.
Acute Insomnia: Adults take 1-3 capsules with water, 60-90 minutes before retiring unless otherwise prescribed. When condition is remedied discontinue use.
Chronic insomnia: Adults take 3 capsules before bed at night for at least two weeks.
Anxiety: may be taken throughout the day - Adults take a maximum of 9 capsules per day unless otherwise prescribed.
Carbohydrate cravings: Adults take 3 capsules daily unless otherwise prescribed.
Migraines and headaches: Adults take 1-3 capsules daily unless otherwise prescribed.
Fibromyalgia: Adults take 2-4 capsules daily unless otherwise prescribed.
Please Note: Natural medicines work gently with the body rather than against it, and therefore may take time to take effect. Some people with transient or mild insomnia will experience a lessening of symptoms after one or two doses of Deep Sleep™, while others need to embark on a three-month natural sleeping programme to change their sleep-wake cycles. Most people require up to 3 capsules a night depending on their degree of insomnia, although if prescribed some may benefit from 6 capsules per night. Scientific research and customer feedback shows improvement on 3 capsules at night.
Not suitable for children, pregnant or breastfeeding women. Should not be taken with prescription sleep medication, Parkinson’s medication or Anti-depressants.
