The Best Natural Sleep Aid For Insomnia!

I've struggled with severe insomnia since 2002. I won't get into the reasons why it started but let's just say after a stressful life event triggered it, it just snowballed from there and took on a life of its own. Since then, I have resorted to every gadget, treatment, therapy, and natural product that I can get my hands on, always with the hope that I'll find "the one."

Over the years, I have found many things that work for me and someday I may share a quite extensive list of the ones that helped the most. There is no way I could include everything, just a variety of what has worked for me. My problem is that even though I find many things that help my insomnia, nothing sticks or keeps my sleep deep, long, and restful. For example, products like 5-HTP help with my sleep but if I take it too many days in a row, it starts to make my sleep MORE restless, so I have to keep switching it up and changing what I take to try and help with my sleep. The struggle is real!

Today, I need to share with you an exciting new product discovery for me as it may also help some of you, and I know there are so many people suffering from insomnia these days.

I came across this product by chance, I wasn't even looking for something for my sleep at the time. Well, I was but it was an eye mask as I have to sleep in total darkness. So I stumbled across this product in my search and I've been using it for a few weeks now with excellent results! Not perfect, but it's one of the best things, if not THE best thing that I've found for my sleep in a long time.

The great thing about this supplement is that it's very customizable in terms of how much or how little you take thanks to the spray dispenser. For example, a dose is considered 6 sprays but because I am very sensitive, I can take just one spray and wait and see and then another if I find I need more etc. This also makes it more economical for me.

Mercola Sleep Support

The supplement I'm talking about is by Dr. Mercola, it's called Sleep Support. It does contain a small amount of melatonin which I'm a fan of, but as much as I like melatonin and it does help me sleep at times, it can also have the tendency to make me wake prematurely ie, 3-4am. So, the fact that this has a very small dose of melatonin that is also customizable, allows me to take melatonin without experiencing the negative effects. This supplement has quite a unique blend of ingredients that are effective, and as I've said, very customizable in terms of dosage. It's pleasant to take and has a sweet raspberry flavour. I spray it under my tongue for best absorption and hold it there for a minute or two.

One pre-metered superfine spray dose will increase your feelings of sleepiness, help you fall asleep faster, enhance your overall sleep quality, which in turn improves your morning alertness and reduce daytime fatigue.

I've had great results so far and no aggravation or side effects. Although my sleep is far from perfect, this is definitely one of the best things that I've found for my sleep in a long time. I just have to play around with the dose and timing. It's pretty economical, especially if you are like me and take less than the full dose (I usually take between 1-3 sprays). If you suffer from insomnia too, you know that you can't put a price on a good night's sleep. If something works, I wouldn't care how much it costs! But, I am sick and tired of spending a ton of cash on things that don't work!

*Tip: If you wake up prematurely like I do (around. 3-4am), consider taking this product or any melatonin supplement upon awakening as that sometimes puts me back to sleep and may work for you. But, I don't recommend this if it's any later in the morning. Since I started this Sleep Support Supplement by Mercola, I haven't had to do this as I've been going back to sleep on my own!

Update: this morning I actually slept through the night and didn't wake up prematurely for the first time in a long time.

If you or someone you know has insomnia, I urge you to give this a try. And, please let me know how it works for you or your loved one. I'd love to hear your feedback.

I purchased mine from iHerb for about $15USD and had free shipping as I was purchasing other products and qualified for free shipping. They do ship to most countries and shipping is very affordable.

I will definitely be repurchasing this product!
