Sleeplessness and Insomnia Relief is not a 'sleeping pill’. It is a herbal sleeping aid and won't normally leave you feeling groggy in the morning. Unlike many sleep remedies, Sleeplessness and Insomnia Relief is available in the form of a liquid herbal tincture. Taken just half an hour before bedtime, it can help if you worry that you can't sleep - encouraging a more natural sleep, helping you sleep better and wake feeling refreshed.
At A.Vogel, we insist that only freshly picked Valerian root and Hops plants are used to make Sleeplessness and Insomnia Relief. This ensures that the herb extracts obtained provide the active* ingredients that encourage undisturbed sleep.
The use of fresh herbs gives Sleeplessness and Insomnia Relief tincture a stronger taste and smell because it has not lost its volatile oils. Some people may prefer to take Sleeplessness and Insomnia Relief diluted in fruit juice, rather than in water.
Sleeplessness and Insomnia Relief contains Valerian extract (Valerian tincture) and Hops extract (Hops tincture), obtained from freshly harvested, organically cultivated valerian root and hops. It comes in the form of a herbal tincture (liquid drops).
Each 1mL dose (25 drops) contains herbal extracts equivalent to:
