What is insomnia?

Insomnia is one of the most common complaints. Within the course of a year, up to 30% of the population suffers from insomnia, and roughly 10% of the adult population has chronic insomnia. You are not alone!

Insomnia describes a persistent pattern of intermittent sleep that leaves the sufferer feeling tired and unrefreshed. It may occur simply because the bedroom is too hot. It is more likely to be the result of pain, or of disturbed sleep patterns and exhaustion caused by regular sleep deprivation. Insomnia can also be caused by an excess of caffeine or alcohol, food allergy, overexcitement, stress, shock, anxiety, or depression.

Supplements that work for insomnia

Melatonin

Melatonin is the most popular natural aid for sleep. Supplementation with melatonin has been shown in several studies to be very effective in helping induce and maintain sleep in both children and adults.

However, melatonin will work best if taken 45 minutes to one hour in advance. When melatonin is taken just before going to bed, it produces no sedative effect. This is because people normally have a rise in melatonin secretion before falling asleep (this makes you start to yawn and feel you have to go to bed). You have to reproduce the rise of melatonin in your blood by taking the pill enough in advance.

Magnesium

Magnesium is involved in over 300 enzyme reactions. It is a mineral known for its powerful relaxation qualities. It has a milder effect than melatonin, but in our opinion, you should try to use it before taking melatonin. Melatonin might work better, but it is stronger and can have an impact on your circadian rhythm (the one that regulates your sleep pattern). If your insomnia is linked to a deficiency of magnesium, it will be better after taking supplements for a few weeks. If after 2-3 months taking magnesium supplements, you do not sleep better, it will be time to consider melatonin.
