AOR Ortho Sleep, Did you know that irregular sleep patterns are being called the new silent killer, being as detrimental to health as stress and poor diet? Studies show that those who chronically get less sleep than the “golden” 7-8 hours are at a higher risk for a number of diseases, are prone to weight gain, and are less able to deal with the effects of stress. People suffering from insomnia spend less time in deeper levels of sleep, wake up more often, and experience a reduction in REM sleep. In addition to stress, insomnia can be caused by a variety of other factors, including anxiety, poor diet, or a disruption of the body's internal clock - such as jet lag, all-night study sessions, or changing work hours.
Ortho Sleep™ is an award-winning premium sleep and relaxation formula. The most important neurotransmitters known to regulate the sleep-wake cycle have been combined with the most powerful herbs traditionally used to promote sleep, yielding a natural sleep remedy like no other.
Ortho Sleep contains a carefully formulated blend of nutrients and compounds that have been shown to be effective in combating insomnia, restoring a proper circadian rhythm, and promoting healthy, restful sleep. These include relaxing neurotransmitters GABA and melatonin, as well as 5-HTP, a serotonin precursor to reduce feelings of worry, especially when trying to fall asleep. The formula further includes the amino acid L-theanine as well as valerian root, passionflower extract, and lemon balm, all of which possess relaxing properties and work to increase the activity of GABA in the brain.
Ortho Sleep is perfect for those who have difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or feeling rested upon waking. Ortho Sleep may help in cases of jet-lag, shift work, or insomnia. If you have used the individual ingredients found in the formula with no success, Ortho Sleep may offer a more powerful natural solution.
