Nervous sleeping disorders and insomnia
Sleeping disorder, affecting about one-third of the adult population worldwide, is characterized as the inability to get the desired quality of sleep. The herbs in this product have been proven to shorten the time it takes to fall asleep, reduce the amount of awaking time after sleep onset, increase the length of deep sleep and improve sleep quality. This natural product has the added advantage over conventional sleeping drugs of no drowsiness or hangover type feelings the next day. It will also not interfere with driving abilities or work capacity.
