To help ease your restlessness or anxiety naturally and rebalance your body's natural circadian rhythm so you can get to sleep more quickly and try to get your full eight hours, Sleep⁸ combines a number of the most effective natural sleep aids with a long history of safe, non-addictive use.

Product Notes:

Sleep More, Sleep Better, Sleep Eight

Sleep 8 features a synergistic combination of 8 natural ingredients intended to help you to fall sleep quicker and to have a more restful sleep, hopefully for the full 8 hours you should allot to yourself to sleep.

Several of them – Chamomile, Hops, Passionflower, Skullcap – are likely quite familiar to North Americans and Europeans as traditional means of reducing stress or anxiety and/or to help induce relaxation and prepare for sleep or to remain asleep, and the inclusion of Magnesium and Melatonin for these purposes will come as no surprise, either. These ingredients all figure into many other sleep and relaxation products offered by other natural health products brands.

Two others may seem a bit counter-intuitive, however, given what else we may associate with these terms, but rest assured, there are both studies and a history of usage backing them up. We know the first, catnip, as something that can make cats ecstatic or frantic with excitement, but paradoxically, it does not have that effect on all species: it can actually help humans – and young chickens – relax. Consequently, that ingredient is also included in another natural health product we carry which is designed for relieving restlessness or attention deficit disorder in youth (LTO3 Junior).

Finally, even though it has "ginseng" as part of its formal name, Panax notoginseng – otherwise known as Chinese ginseng or Qiye Shen’an Pian – is not stimulating in the way that some other types of ginseng are; it has a wide range of uses in Traditional Chinese Medicine and has been the subject of many studies, including for relieving general anxiety disorder and insomnia.
