12a-flora-sleep-essence-blWhy Sleeping is So Important

Do you often lay awake at night, tossing and turning, unable to fall asleep? Do you have a million-and-one thoughts running through your mind? Do you struggle to turn off your brain so you can relax? If so, you inevitably lay awake restless, irritated and unable to sleep. Insomnia strikes most people at one time or another, usually due to excess stress.


Do you suffer from any of the following?
− Difficulty falling asleep
− Waking up during the night
− Not feeling refreshed in the morning
− Difficulty concentrating
− Daytime drowsiness

If you can relate to some or all of these signs of insomnia, you aren’t alone. In fact, 35% of Canadians have difficulty going to, or staying asleep. Considering how important sleep is to overall health, this is an alarming statistic. When you aren’t getting sufficient sleep, your health suffers. Research indicates that a lack of sleep can lead to a multitude of health problems, including an increased risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, weight gain and obesity. Sleep also helps your brain function properly so you can concentrate; make decisions, and other basic functions on a daily basis. The Sleep Foundation recommends getting 7 – 9 hours of sleep at night. And if you aren’t, your brain and body suffer and your immune system loses its abilities to help fight disease so you may find that you are more prone to illness.

Sleep·Essence from Flora is the solution to your sleep troubles. This powerful combination of organic chamomile flower, lemon balm, linden flower, passionflower, skullcap, and lavender is designed to ease sleeplessness and insomnia. All of the herbs in this liquid tea blend were carefully selected for their calming, sleep-inducing properties. These herbs are concentrated in a liquid base of apple juice, hibiscus, and passion fruit for ease of use. This delicious tasting, natural sleep aid promotes a restful sleep, allowing you to fall asleep more easily and stay asleep all night.

Sleep·Essence is a licensed natural health product in Canada and carries the following official claims:
• Traditionally used in Herbal Medicine as a sleep aid in cases of restlessness or insomnia due to mental stress.
• Traditionally used in Herbal Medicine as a calmative.
• Traditionally used in Herbal Medicine to help relieve nervousness.

Sleep·Essence’s health claims are based on evidence from centuries of traditional herbal use, as referenced by traditional texts. There are also clinical trials on a number of the herbs in the formula (chamomile, lemon balm, skullcap, and passionflower) that help to support what was observed in traditional use as well. These herbs are known as nervines, or nerve tonics, by herbalists. All of the herbs in Sleep·Essence use flowers or leaves that help to calm, relax, and soothe high-strung, overactive or tense nervous systems, reduce spasm and muscle tension, encourage sleep, and restore strength to nerve fibres. Chamomile, linden, lavender and lemon balm also have calming effects on the digestive system by reducing cramping, gas, and bloating, and thus alleviating any insomnia stemming from indigestion as well.

Until now, the selection of natural sleep aids has been rather limited. Herbs such as valerian root are commonly used in capsule form, yet they are ineffective for many people. Melatonin tablets are common, and can effectively help for jet lag; however, the National Sleep Foundation warms against the usage of melatonin as it can reset your biological clock in a negative way. Also, Melatonin is a synthetic hormone and not a natural supplement.

Sleep·Essence isn’t a capsule or a tablet; it is an all-natural, liquid herbal blend that goes straight to work to lull you into a deep, restful sleep. While numerous varieties of ‘bedtime’ teas exist, none contain the synergistic blend of herbs found in Sleep·Essence and none are ready to go the moment you need it like Sleep·Essence. Vegan, organic, kosher, gluten-free and non-GMO, Sleep·Essence is also preservative-free and packaged in recyclable amber glass bottles. If you prefer a warm drink at night, simply add some warm water to it for a calming and delightful nightcap. Sleep·Essence is non-habit-forming, making it perfectly safe to take whenever you need help getting a better night’s sleep. It helps you awaken feeling refreshed, never groggy.
