How to Get a Good Night’s Sleep

By Daniel Gagnon, Medical Herbalist


If you are one of the many people suffering from occasional sleep problems, you are not alone:


  • 58% of adults experience minor sleep problems one night each week.*

  • Sleep problems affect more than 25% of the United States population annually.**

  • Sleep problems affect more women than men (40% vs. 30%).*

  • Older adults tend to suffer from chronic (constant) sleep problems.*

  • Younger adults tend to suffer from transient (short term) and intermittent (on and off) sleep problems.*


How to get a rejuvenating night’s sleep.

To get the rejuvenation your body needs, deep and relaxing Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep is critical.  It is during REM sleep that dreaming occurs. A wealth of research has shown that dreams are essential for us to process the daily events of our lives.


How can Deep Sleep® help?


Deep Sleep® is designed specifically to help people with a variety of sleep problems, including difficulty falling asleep, waking up during the night, inability to fall back to sleep, waking up too early in the morning and not getting REM sleep. 


Here is a list of the herbs that make Deep Sleep® such a wonderful sleep remedy:


  • California poppy (Eschscholzia californica, fresh [undried] whole herb in flower) is specific for those who awaken during the night or too early in the morning.


  • Valerian (Valeriana officinalis, fresh [undried] root) reduces sleep latency, which means it reduces the time it takes to fall asleep.


  • Passionflower (Passiflora incarnata, fresh [undried] flowering herb tip) is especially helpful for those with active minds that won’t quiet down at night.


  • Chamomile (Chamomilla recutita, fresh [undried] flower) is a useful herb for mild to moderate uneasy sleep.


  • Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis, fresh [undried] whole herb) produces a sedative action that calms and normalizes respiration, cardiac rhythm and blood pressure.


  • Oat (Avena sativa, fresh [undried] seed in the milky stage) is an excellent nervous system tonic.


  • Orange (Citrus sinensis, dried whole peel) is considered a mild sedative in Traditional Chinese Medicine.


This herbal formula isn’t habit-forming and doesn’t have any side effects. Deep Sleep® offers substantial benefits for people with sleep problems. You’ll wake up feeling refreshed and alert, not lethargic, groggy, or tired. Deep Sleep® is available in soft gels or a liquid extract.
