Sleep Aid Supplements

We all know that sleep is important for our health, and most adults need at least seven hours of sleep a night to maintain their physical and mental health and wellbeing.

However, many people struggle to fall and stay asleep, and suffer from sleep disorders, such as insomnia. This can lead to poor memory and concentration and lack of energy and mood changes, and has been linked to serious health problems, including type 2 diabetes, stroke and heart disease.

Healthspan offers a range of natural sleep aid supplements that may help, from magnesium and 5-HTP to valerian and CBD. You can browse our sleep aid range below.

Why can't I sleep?

Sleep is important for physical and mental health and wellbeing: it's important for all biological functions, from maintaining weight and energy levels to regulating mood and improving memory. Just one bad night's sleep can lead to loss of concentration and mood changes, and long-term sleep problems have been linked to serious health issues such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure and heart disease.

Adults should aim to get more than seven hours of sleep each night, but according to The Sleep Charity 40% of adults and children suffer from sleep issues, which include insomnia, sleep apnoea, restless legs syndrome and sleepwalking. Other causes of sleep issues include stress, bladder control problems, hormonal changes during menopause and even lifestyle factors like too much caffeine or screen usage.

What can help me get to sleep?

For those who struggle to fall and stay asleep, certain things can help. Sleep hygiene is important – for example, keeping a regular sleep-wake schedule, getting early-morning light, avoiding caffeinated drinks and alcohol before bed, and reducing screentime in the evening. These can all help to regulate the body's circadian rhythm, which is controlled by the 'sleep hormone' melatonin.

Other hormones also play a part: fluctuations of oestrogen and progesterone during menopause can cause insomnia, while too much cortisol (the stress hormone) can also make sleep elusive. If all else fails, sleep aid supplements can help to relax the body and help you fall asleep. Common sleep aids include valerian, 5-HTP, magnesium and CBD oil.

Types of sleep supplements

Healthspan offers a variety of sleep aid supplements, from natural sleep aids such as valerian and saffron, to sleep aid tablets and vitamins like magnesium and 5-HTP, and, of course, various types and strengths of CBD. Most of these sleep aids work by promoting calm and relaxing the body to help you drift off.

Natural sleep aids

Healthspan offers two natural, herbal sleep aids – valerian and saffron.

Valerian is a traditional herbal remedy that is used for the temporary relief of sleep disturbances. It's thought that valerian promotes calmness by interacting with various receptors in the body that are involved in mood and sleep. Valerian SleepAid (60 tablets) contain 300mg of high-quality valerian root extract.

Healthspan's Saffron (60 capsules) contains 30mg of saffron extract, along with niacin and vitamin B6, to support relaxation and normal psychological function. Saffron is often called the sunshine spice due to its mood-boosting properties, and it's also known to promote relaxation and emotional balance. Healthspan Saffron capsules are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Sleep aid tablets

Healthspan offers various sleep aid tablets and vitamins.

Magnesium has many vital functions, including maintaining normal hormone function (including sleep hormones melatonin and serotonin.) It also plays an important role in muscle function and the nervous system, and some research suggests that magnesium deficiency may play a part in causing restless legs syndrome and periodic limb movement disorder.

Healthspan Magnesium 375mg (90 tablets) provides 375mg of magnesium (100% of the recommended daily intake), along with vitamin B complex to reduce tiredness and fatigue. Or try Opti-Magnesium (90 tablets), which also provides 375mg of magnesium per daily dose, but in two highly absorbable forms for optimal absorption. Magnesium 375mg is suitable for vegans and vegetarians, while Opti-Magnesium is only suitable for vegetarians.

The compound 5-HTP is a naturally occurring amino acid that produces serotonin, which is converted into the sleep hormone melatonin in the body. Healthspan's Night Time 5-HTP (60 tablets) contains 100mg of vegan, plant-based 5-HTP (extracted from the seeds of the West African tree Griffonia simplicifolia) along with magnesium and vitamins B3, B6 and B12 to support muscle, nerve and psychological function.

Many people suffer from nocturia (frequent urination at night) – it is often caused by ageing, and is one of the most common urinary conditions among men. Healthspan's Bladder Support with Go-Less (60 capsules) is a natural supplement aimed at supporting bladder health.

Each capsule contains 300mg of Go-Less – extracts of pumpkin seed and soy germ, which are thought to promote bladder health – along with zinc and vitamins D3 and B6 for hormonal support. This supplement may be suitable for people who suffer disrupted sleep due to frequent visits to the toilet.

CBD sleeping aids

Healthspan offers various CBD (cannabidiol) products that are aimed at improving sleep. Healthspan's CBD is produced through a filter-clear process, which uses non-toxic carbon dioxide and results in a pure, highly distilled CBD oil that contains undetectable levels of THC (the compound that gives cannabis its psychoactive properties.) Read more about Healthspan's high-quality CBD.

CBD Support Night Time (30 capsules) provides 5mg of CBD, along with natural herbal extracts of chamomile, hops and lemon balm to promote relaxation. Alternatively, Healthspan's Night Time CBD Oil (10ml dropper) also contains chamomile, lemon balm and hops (as well as lavender), but is in the form of a liquid that is simply dropped on the tongue for fast absorption – ideal for those who don't like to swallow tablets or capsules.
