Picture this … it’s 2 o’clock in the morning, you’re staring at the ceiling with your mind drifting between work, bills and the kids. Once you start, you can’t stop; soon you’ll be tossing and turning all night, counting down the minutes until that alarm goes off again. Sure, you could try to count sheep again, but sleeping pills may be easier route.
In a 2013 survey from New York Daily News, it showed nearly nine million Americans take sleeping pills to prevent suffering through the never-ending, sleepless nights. Chamomile tea and lavender-scented candles have made their way onto the list of solutions, but still, the most common way as well as the most beneficial to prevent restless nights, are the former.
Equinox manufactures a proprietary blend of natural ingredients including melatonin, chamomile and natural vitamin B-6. Formulated to aid the body in obtaining a healthy amount of sleep, this formula contains relaxing vitamins, minerals and herbs. When taken as directed, Sleep Formula can help reduce anxiety while drifting off and sleeping through the night.
Melatonin is known as the ultimate sleep saver, holding powerful side effects which control your sleep and wake cycles. Small amounts are found naturally in certain meats, grains, fruits and vegetables. When used as a sleeping aid, it is generally taken as a supplement.
For your benefit, Equinox’s Sleep Formula is most effective when used sparingly for short-term situations such as traveling across time zones or recovering from a medical procedure. If you choose to take sleeping pills long term, it is best to use them only on an infrequent, “as needed,” basis to avoid dependence and tolerance.
