Sleep Starter Topical Patch by PatchMD
A bad night’s sleep can leave you feeling like a zombie. Tiredness due to poor quality sleep can increase the risk of making mistakes, bad decisions, and even having accidents. Not to mention the fact that everything just feels 10x harder when we’ve not got the sleep we need. But our natural sleeping patch can help.
The Sleep Starter Topical Patch helps to promote a restful night’s sleep thanks to its 5mg dose of melatonin, along with magnesium, valerian root, hops extract, and 5-HTP (Griffonia Simplicifolia). Melatonin is a hormone that’s responsible for both initiating sleep and maintaining it throughout the night. When our sleep cycle is healthy, our bodies produce melatonin once it’s dark outside. As our levels of melatonin increase, our core body temperature decreases, and we start to feel less alert. We then feel more and more drowsy until the idea of sleep becomes appealing and we eventually nod off.
However, if our melatonin production is suppressed, then there’s nothing to trigger our usual sleep patterns. So, the end result is that we struggle to fall asleep or don’t sleep for very long. This can be a consequence of the natural aging process, since melatonin production decreases as we get older. But it can also be caused by things like travelling to a different time zone, working night shifts, or using smartphones before bed.
Using a melatonin sleep patch can be an effective way to give your body the rest it needs. It’s popular with people who travel frequently on business trips as it helps them avoid jet lag and perform at their best. It’s also ideal for people with age-related insomnia* who struggle to get to sleep and then stay asleep for the recommended 8 hours. For people who work unusual shift patterns and need to sleep during the day, it can be the difference between a decent rest and no shut-eye at all. So, if you’re struggling to get the nightly rest you need and are fed up of feeling tired all the time, then melatonin sleep patches may be a practical solution.
Our sleep patch also contains several other ingredients that encourage good quality shut-eye; magnesium, valerian root, hops extract, and 5-HTP. When combined with melatonin, these compounds help to relax the body and prepare it for a night’s rest.
Magnesium is an essential mineral for everyday health but it can also aid the relaxation process. It activates the parasynthetic nervous system which helps your body to chill out. This system is the same one that’s activated by deep breathing and meditation. Magnesium regulates specific neurotransmitters that affect the brain and nervous system. It also helps to regulate melatonin so works in harmony with other patch ingredients to encourage restful sleep.
Valerian root is a herbal remedy for insomnia. It’s been prescribed for hundreds of years for a number of sleep disorders along with psychological anxiety. The herb appears to work in a similar way to traditional sedatives by relaxing the brain so that you can switch off and sleep peacefully. Studies have shown that taking valerian root can help you fall asleep 15-20 minutes faster and improve the quality of your shut-eye too. It’s even more effective when combined with hops which is why we pair them together in our patch formula.
Hops is another traditional remedy for people with sleep problems. It enhances the levels of GABA which reduces neuron activity in the brain so that you feel calmer and ready to relax. GABA also promotes more restful sleep as it increases the time spent in REM (the most restorative stage of sleep). Hops also appears to help lower the body temperature which is one of the signals that it’s time to sleep. This can encourage feelings of drowsiness so that you find it easier to drop off.
5-HTP is most well-known as an appetite suppressant but it can also help to support the natural sleep cycle too. It’s short for ‘5-Hydroxytryptophan’ which is naturally made from amino acids that we consume in protein. In our bodies, it is involved in serotonin production which plays an important part in regulating sleep patterns. As a precursor to melatonin, it’s essential to ensuring that we start feeling tired once it gets dark. Having healthy levels of both serotonin and melatonin will help to ensure that you find it easy to both get to sleep and stay asleep. By combining both in our sleep patches, we ensure that your body has all the nutrients it needs for a peaceful night’s rest.
Our patches are also suitable for people with many different forms of allergies. They’re free from gluten, wheat, casein, milk, egg, tree nuts, peanuts, shellfish, soy, and corn.
