Sleep Soundly With Sleep Aids & Sleeping Pills

Most of us need around eight hours of good-quality sleep a night to function properly – some need more and some less.

However, for many people, achieving that level of sleep can be extremely difficult. Indeed, research has revealed that up to a third of the adult population in the UK suffers from some sort of sleeping disorder. As a result, more than 10 million prescriptions for sleeping pills are prescribed each year in England.

We have all had a bad night’s sleep and felt groggy the next morning, but as well as being important for boosting mental well-being, a good night’s sleep also has medical advantages too. It’s been proven to be beneficial to the immune system, prevent diabetes, ward off heart disease and even increase fertility.

There are many causes of insomnia. Some are lifestyle related and can be moderated through simple changes such as avoiding caffeine and alcohol later in the day and heavy meals late at night, setting regular times to go to sleep and wake up, having a warm bath (not hot), taking part in relaxation exercises such as yoga and reading before going to bed. Other causes including stress, anxiety, and depression aren’t quite as simple to control, and may require additional medication.

Whatever the root cause may be, there are many forms of sleeping pills available. For chronic sufferers, powerful sleep pills are obtainable from GPs. For those who just need a little help to induce sleep, sleep aids such as Nytol and Kalms are readily available over the counter and online.

Nytol One-a-Night
Nytol one-a-night sleeping aids are a sleeping aid that causes drowsiness, induces relaxation and relieves temporary sleeping difficulties. It contains the active ingredient Diphenhydramine Hydrochloride which is commonly used and trusted as a sedating antihistamine.

As well as decreasing the time it takes to fall asleep, Nytol One-a-Night also increases the depth and quality of sleep, providing relief for those suffering from multiple sleeping difficulties. Nytol tablets get you into a natural and healthy sleeping rhythm and help you wake up feeling refreshed next morning.

Nytol herbal tablets
Nytol herbal sleeping aids are for those people who prefer a herbal remedy with natural ingredients to help them drift off to peaceful sleep at night. These tablets are used as a traditional herbal remedy to soothe, cause whole body relaxation and aid a restful night’s sleep.

Nytol herbal contains hops, valerian and passion flower as the active ingredients which cause sleepiness or drowsiness.

Kalms Night
Kalms Night One-A-Night is a traditional herbal remedy that can help you get a good night’s sleep and wake up feeling rested the next morning.

As with Nytol herbal tablets, Kalms Night contains valerian, traditionally used for its sedative action, and its active ingredient is valerian root, another natural sedative which has been used for over 30 years.

A bad night’s sleep can be hugely frustrating and have a knock on effect on the next day, which in itself may cause stress and the beginning of a negative sleep cycle. The sleep aids mentioned above will help you switch off and gently fall asleep.

For those with more prolonged sleeping problems, it’s advised that you seek advice regarding sleeping pills from a GP to avoid longer lasting problems. Alternatively, we have a team of in-house doctors that will be happy to provide guidance on how to get a better night’s sleep.

As always, before starting any course of medication, ensure that you read and understand the labelled directions, and always stay within the recommended dosage.
