Find out how Herbal Sleep pairs four trusted botanicals for restorative sleep.

Tired of being tired? When it comes to getting enough sleep, most of us are falling short. In fact, 97 million adults reported trouble sleeping (39%) five or more nights per week, and 206MM adults (82%) had trouble sleeping at least once a week1 - those are big numbers!

With our busy schedules and long to-do lists, this is easier said than done, but we need to sleep at least 7-8 hours each night to rest and recharge all of our systems. In addition to helping you feel your best, adequate sleep is important to support our entire body’s health, including our immune system.

If you’re one of the many folks struggling to catch those z’s, good sleep hygiene (a consistent bedtime, limiting screen-time before bed) paired with herbal support might help. In fact, herbal sleep solutions such as valerian, passionflower, and hops are among the first recommended by WebMD for those that are searching for help sleeping.2

And so MegaFood looked to the most popular and time-tested botanicals around sleep and decided to combine them into one unique product, aptly named Herbal Sleep, a melatonin-free option for supporting a good night’s rest.*

 

What’s in it?

Herbal Sleep combines organic valerian, hops, passionflower, and Sensoril® Ashwagandha into one convenient capsule designed to offer relief from occasional sleeplessness and to promote a sense of calm:*
