details

  1. Melatonin [↑]

    Everybody needs melatonin for a good nights rest. It is a hormone made by the pineal gland, which is a small gland in the brain. Melatonin, also called the sleeping hormone, synchronizes your biological clock with your sleep and wake rhythm. The production of melatonin in your body starts during the evening, rises and remains high during the night and towards the morning your melatonin levels start to drop again. Changes in your normal sleep and wake rhythm may result in irregularities in your melatonin levels and therefore in sleeping difficulties. Finding your natural rhythm is the best way to achieve a healthy sleeping pattern.

  2. Zinc [↑]

    The mineral zinc calmes the nervous system and reduces stress and therefore its consequences. Furthermore zinc is necessary in the metabolism of melatonin, the key hormone to help you sleep. A lack of zinc in your diet may therefor have an adverse effect on your stress levels.

  3. Vitamin B6 [↑]

    Vitamin B is an important player in mood and sleep patterns because it helps the body produce serotonin, melatonin and norepinephrine (a stress hormone). Higher stress levels may deplete your vitamin levels, replenishing them may therefor diminish your stress levels and improve your sleep.
