SLEEP EZ HIGHLIGHTS
Patients Experience Deep, Refreshing Sleep
We’ve also included two brain calming ingredients
to help quiet a busy mind that often prevents patients from achieving
restful sleep: 5-HTP & Lithium - 5-HTP because it affects melatonin
synthesis so people find that when they take it, they sleep better; and
Lithium - a nutrient to protect brain essential fatty acids, which play
an important role in sleep. Patients find they awake more refreshed and
calm with Sleep EZ.
Sleep EZ contains plant extracts that support restful sleep:
- Citrus bioflavonoids
- Gotu Kola
- Ganoderma lucidum
- Rhodiola rosea
- Lemon balm
- Passion Flower
- Withania somnifera
Cognitive Performance Impaired by Sleeplessness*
a study on the effects of sleep deprivation, investigators at the
University of Pennsylvania found that people who slept 4 to 6 hours a
night for 14 consecutive nights showed significant deficits in cognitive
performance equivalent to going without sleep for up to three days in a
row. Yet these subjects reported feeling only slightly sleepy and were
unaware of how impaired they were.

Sleep Deprived Population
From the National Sleep Foundation survey:
- 74% of Americans do not get enough sleep
- Most people feel groggy during the week
- 51% say they have trouble getting to sleep
- 50% can’t get up without an alarm clock
- Alarm clocks interrupt the sleep cycle, causing lack of energy & feeling unrefreshed
- People with sleep problems are twice as likely to feel stressed & tired
- 30-40% of heavy truck accidents due to driver fatigue
Side Effects Of Prescription Sleeping Pills:
- Viral Infection
- Dry Mouth
- Decreased Libido
- Unpleasant Taste
Sleeplessness is Up When the Economy is Down*
to an annual poll by National Sleep Foundation (reported 3/2/09 on the
NIH News website, a service of the National Library of Medicine) almost
one third of Americans are unable to get a good night's sleep as they
worry about the economy, their money and their jobs. The number of
Americans reporting sleep problems has increased - those who report
receiving 8 hours of sleep on a regular basis is down from 38% in 2001
to 28% today.
Almost 3/4 of our population gets less than the recommended 8 hours of sleep!
disturbed Americans also report that they are twice as likely not to
participate in family events & leisure activities because of
Feeling Dissatisfied With Life May Be Tied to Sleep Quality*
who have a tough time getting a good night's rest are more likely to
become dissatisfied with their lives later on, according to a study in
Finland. Researchers are looking at the relationship between well-being
and mental functioning with sleep quality. The study evaluated over
American Journal of Epidemiology, January 15, 2009, as reported on the NIH website.
Insomnia Tied to Impulsive - Reactive Behavior*
to research posted in the NIH Website for 4/1/09, researchers have
linked insomnia to impulsive and reactive behavior reporting that
insomnia "basically lowers the threshold for impulsive behavior and for
being reactive to an emotional event."
Deficits in Cognitive Performance*
to the US Dept of Health & Human Services, National Institutes of
Health, a study on sleep deprivation found that people who slept 4-6
hours a night for 14 consecutive nights showed significant deficits in
cognitive performance equivalent to going without sleep for up to three
days in a row. People reported feeling only slightly sleepy, but
were completely unaware of how impaired they really were .
included a reduced ability to pay attention and react to a stimulus,
such as driving, the ability to think quickly and not make mistakes and
the ability to multi-task.
