Difficulty sleeping, high stress levels and mood can have a profound impact on your health. Sleep, stress and mood can be impacted by many factors - often they are interrelated - and a Natural Choice advisor can help you find answers. They have sound advice to help you choose and implement the right options for you. For example, knowing the correct dose for natural products and understanding how they work with your body is essential to ensuring these options are effective.
How good is a good nights sleep? It’s great - sleeping well is one of the joys of life, and a pillar of your good health. For example, sleep plays a vital role in the repair of heart and blood vessels. Being deprived of sleep on an ongoing basis has been linked to an increased risk of kidney disease, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, stroke and obesity.
So why aren’t you sleeping? Could be a wide variety of reasons, including pre-natal issues, menopause, stress, hormones, pain, medications, diet, vitamin deficiency and more. It often becomes a vicious cycle – can’t sleep because of stress, which causes more stress, which impacts your sleep. The good news is your Natural Choice advisor has options to help with each and every one of those issues. We are here to help you figure it out and enjoy the rejuvenation of a good nights sleep.

A quick chat with a Natural Choice advisor will help find solutions that will get you resting easy. Trouble falling asleep? Could be the blue light from your device screen blocking production of melatonin, a chemical in your brain that signals sleep. We recommend you take a break from screens for at least an hour before bed. Melatonin supplements can also help. Pain keeping you up? California poppy might help. Trouble
staying asleep? Adrenal and Cortisol issues could be waking you up. Rescue Remedy night melt, Rhodiola or Ashwagandha are potential solutions.
