Better Dream, Better Life
Sleep deprivation has grabbed the public’s attentions in recent years, as it easily occurs because our sleep could be influenced by complex reasons. Research has shown that 1 in 3 people have brief insomnia symptoms; 75% of adults ages 65 and older, and 20% of preteens have insomnia symptoms; and 1 in 10 people have chronic insomnia symptoms.
And what is the connection between sleep and Alzheimer's? Some recent studies suggest that poor sleep contributes to abnormal levels of beta-amyloid protein in the brain, which in turn leads to the amyloid plaques found in the Alzheimer's brain.According to research, nearly 60 percent of older adults have some kind of chronic sleep disturbance.
Undoubtedly, sleep is rather important – and especially vital – to our day-to-day performance. Besides of the risk of having Alzheimer's, sleep deprivation can also cause other serious symptoms:
2.Reduced attention span
4.Poor or risky decision-making
5.Lack of energy
6.Mood changes including feelings of stress, anxiety, or irritability, possibly leading to depression
We could see that sleep deprivation absolutely affects our life and work severely, especially for personal growth and long-term health, and customers have gradually come to realize how much sleep quality matters, which is possibly resulted in a bigger supplements market in this field. In fact, there are many dietary supplements that can improve sleep, read more about them below.
5-HTP, full name 5-hydroxytryptophan, which can be converted to serotonin in the body. Human bodies could produce 5-HTP by intaking enough amount of tryptophan, which is an essential amino acid that could often be neglected. Lack of 5-HTP can result to worsened mental health and sleep quality.
γ-Aminobutyric acid, known as GABA, is the chief inhibitory neurotransmitter in the developmentally mature mammalian central nervous system. Its principal role is reducing neuronal excitability throughout the nervous system. GABA is sold as a dietary supplement in many countries. 
L-theanine: In mature tea plants, theanine is synthesised in the roots. With the energy provided by ATP, theanine is synthesised by glutamate and ethylamine, catalysed by the theanine synthase enzyme. Tea plants use theanine in the photosynthesis process to produce polyphenols known as catechins. Theanine has many physiological functions. For example, it can break the blood-brain barrier and directly affect brain activity, thus having an impact on a person's mood. At the same time, theanine is a popular natural dietary supplement that relieves stress, promotes calmness and relaxes the body, but at the same time increases mental energy and does not cause drowsiness.
Tryptophan is an essential amino acid, which means that we cannot manufacture it on our own and get it from our diet. L-tryptophan supplementation has the potential to improve both sleep and mood. Numerous studies have demonstrated the positive effects of supplementing with L-tryptophan to boost melatonin and serotonin production, both of which help regulate the sleep-wake cycle and improve sleep.
Melatonin, a hormone produced and secreted by the pineal gland, decreases in concentration in the blood plasma during the day and increases at night. It is through this circadian cycle of melatonin secretion that the pineal gland sends "time signals" to the central nervous system, allowing the brain and body to perceive that it is "dark outside and it is time to sleep" when night comes, causing body temperature, pulse and blood pressure to drop Melatonin is also known as the body's natural "sleeping pill", as it triggers sleepiness. The drug helps to shorten the time it takes to wake up and fall asleep before sleep. This improves the quality of sleep by reducing the number of awakenings during sleep, shortening the light sleep phase and increasing the duration of deep sleep.
Valerian Extract：Dried and ready to be extracted as a sedative, Valerian root is a natural relaxing substance that is very effective in treating many symptoms of emotional disturbances such as irritability, nervousness, hysteria and insomnia. Valerian has a sedative effect, strengthens the inhibitory processes in the cerebral cortex, reduces reflex excitability and relieves smooth muscle spasm. It can be combined with bromine for various neuroleptic states, cardiovascular neurosis, hyperthyroidism, etc. Valerian extract, which also acts on the GABA receptors in the brain, can increase their mobility and thus achieve the sedative effect of tranquillisers without any adverse side effects.
