femMED Sleep, a Natural Sleep Aid

femMED Sleep is a natural sleep aid including 8 ingredients for the promotion of sleep. These nutrients are delivered in an easy to swallow, vegetarian capsule. The ingredients include: Magnolia Bark [Magnolia officinalis], Passionflower [Passiflora incarnate], Lemon Balm [Melissa officinalis], Skullcap [Scutellaria lateriflora], L-theanine(Camellia sinensis [Green Tea]), Wild Green Oat (Avena sativa powdered extract, 4:1), 5-HTP [Griffonia simplicifolia], Amur Bark [Phellodendron amurense] and Melatonin.

Magnolia Bark is an herb of ancient Chinese medicine that is reported to have anti-anxiety effects and induces sedation.

Passionflower has been shown to have sleep inducing and anti-anxiety effects.

Lemon Balm has been found to have sedative, anti-agitation and calming effects. Clinical trials have also shown that lemon balm has the ability to improve mood and cognitive function in response to stress.

Skullcap traditionally used as a natural sleep aid or mild sedative,  a claim which is now well supported by research.

L-theanine (Camellia sinensis [Green Tea]) may increase alpha wave activity through mechanisms using neurotransmitters within 30-40 minutes of consumption, thus producing alert relaxation.

5-HTP  given to healthy humans results in an increase in REM sleep, an increase in total rapid eye movement, and a decrease in nonREM sleep.

Amur Bark is derived from a cork tree that originated from China. Its active constituent is berberine, which has depressive effects on the central nervous system [CNS], leading to a sedative effect.

Melatonin, long used as a natural sleep aid,  regulates the body’s sleep-wake cycle according to light exposure. Supplemental melatonin has also been shown to be efficacious in earlier sleep onset, offset and better sleep quality.

    My mother is 81 yrs old and has a lot of trouble with insomnia Her doctor has prescribed sleeping pills (a few different ones) but none of them seem to work all the time one night they work but the next three nights they don’t. Do you think your product could help someone who suffers from extreme insomnia? I just don’t want to buy them and they have no effect at all. Have you had any testimonials from extreme insomniacs? Any information you can give me would be appreciate Thank you so much

      Thanks for your note. The mechanism in femMED Sleep works on the underlying cause of insomnia, meaning it is designed to help restore the normal sleep-wake cycle. So ideally your mother would take the entire bottle of supplements, rather than just for a few nights. The melatonin and 5-htp should help with her immediate sleep concerns but it’s the duration of how long she is on it that will help her longer-term. We’re happy to offer a money-back guarantee if you order the product online. Please let us know if we can help with any other questions!
