Study after study confirms what we’ve known deep down all along: Groggy and sleep-deprived is no way to go through life.
Sleep deprivation can drastically reduce your quality of life and your longevity. That why it’s so darned important to get your full 8 hours. Still, even when we get to bed on time, some of us struggle with that last step and end up counting sheep all night long…
If you struggle with insomnia or just have occasional trouble drifting off, consider trying one of the following herbal sleep aids. (You can also find potent tinctures made from these herbs, and follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for consumption.) Some natural sedatives may work better for you than others, so be patient if you don’t feel the effects of the first one you try.
With a little effort, you can even grow these herbs and make your own medicine.
