Are you getting enough sleep?

Depending on your daily workload, feeling tired in the afternoons or evening is absolutely normal. However, do you find yourself feeling sluggish in the morning everyday? This is one of the many signs of inadequate sleep. Other signs include noticing dark circles forming under your eyes.

Inadequate sleep can make you feel irritable, or slow to react. It can also lead to loss of focus, make you lethargic during work hours or impair your judgment when making decisions.

Doctors and sleep specialists (or somnologists, as they are known) both agree that as an adult, you need 7 or more hours of sleep in a 24 hour daily cycle. Studies show that it takes 10 to 15 minutes to fall asleep. If you find yourself still awake half an hour after you jump into bed, it could mean that you have a sleep disorder. In which case a tonic for tiredness and fatigue like Bakson's Alfavena Malt Health Tonic would be recommended.

What is the science behind sleep?

Have you ever wondered why you feel sleepy? Just like many other functions in the body, sleep too is controlled by a hormone. Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland in the brain that controls sleep. Interestingly it is produced when you are in the dark after nightfall, or after you’ve turned the lights out. For this reason, melatonin is also called the darkness hormone.

The job of the sleep hormone melatonin is to regulate the circadian rhythm of your body. The circadian rhythm is the cycle of your moods, mental and physical behavior in a 24 hour period. An example of the circadian rhythm is that sleepiness peaks at 2 PM and 2 AM on a normal day. If you’re not able to fall asleep and recharge your mind and body during these hours, it could be a sign that you have a sleep disorder.

Millions of people are in the same position as you. And many people have opted to take help with their sleep deficiency in the form of homeopathy. If you want a fix for getting quick, undisturbed and refreshing sleep try Bakson's Alfavena Malt.

What is a normal sleep cycle and how many of them do I have in a night?

In a full night’s undisturbed sleep of 8 hours you will have 6 to 7 sleep cycles. There are basically two stages in each sleep cycle - REM sleep and N-REM sleep. REM stands for Rapid Eye Movement and N-REM stands for Non Rapid Eye Movement sleep.

REM sleep is the deepest part of your sleep cycle. It is also the time in your sleep when you dream. In order for your mind to enter the REM stage of sleep, your brain needs to slow down the number of signals it gives to your body. In this phase your brain only sends out Delta Waves which tell your muscle activity to cut off and you will fall into a deep restful sleep.

If you suffer from anxiety, excess worry and restlessness, it will affect your sleep cycle. This in turn will make you even more anxious, thus creating an unhealthy vicious cycle of anxiety and insomnia.

If your sleep quality is bothering you try a tonic to relieve anxiety like Bakson Alfavena Malt Health Tonic.
