Benefits of Sleep
Sleep is one of the most important things we can do for our wellbeing. Sleep gives us a chance to restore and rejuvenate, grow muscle, repair tissue, and produce hormones. Getting a good night’s sleep is extremely important, as it helps us to function optimally – physically, mentally and emotionally.
Natural Remedies for Sleep
Herbal remedies can help us get a restful night’s sleep by encouraging our mind and body’s natural processes before and during sleep. Whether you’re trying to adapt to a new sleep pattern, or just need to get a good night’s sleep, there are a vast range of herbs that have a longstanding use for nourishing the nervous system and helping us relax.
Passionflower is one such herbal remedy. It is a perennial climbing vine native to the southeastern United States, but also grows extensively in Europe. Passionflower has been used for stress reduction and to overcome sleeplessness. It is often combined with other calming herbs.
Scientists believe passionflower works by increasing levels of a chemical called gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain. GABA lowers the activity of some brain cells, making you feel more relaxed.
Passionflower is often combined with other calming herbs such as chamomile, St John’s wort and valerian to help promote sleep. Check out these and other wonderful herbs in our Bedtime Tea recipe. It’s the perfect complement to add to your nighttime CBD hemp oil regiment.
