Whenever I have trouble sleeping, I pop a melatonin capsule to help me doze off. If you’re not familiar, melatonin is a hormone produced by the brain to help you manage your natural sleep cycle. It’s also used as a sleeping aid that can help with jet lag, delayed sleep-wake phase disorder, some sleep disorders in children, and anxiety before and after surgery.
There are tons of supplements available in the market but if you’re looking for something new, you can try Vicks ZzzQuil Natura Sleep. This new product is also made from melatonin, except it comes in gummy form.
Vicks ZzzQuil Natura Sleep contains 1.6 mg melatonin per two servings of gummy. One milligram of melatonin, when taken close to bedtime, may help reduce the time to fall asleep. It comes in a delicious wildberry vanilla flavor that’s tasty without needing water, which means you don’t even have to get up from bed when taking this.
Sleep deprivation in the Philippines
The Philippines is ranked as the fourth most sleep-deprived country in the world, with more than 80% having experienced occasional sleeplessness. There’s a big chance you’ve experienced the problems of lack of sleep: the inability to think or concentrate, feeling low and out of sorts, unable to do what you want to do and enjoy what life has to offer. You might even find yourself a little snappy with others or being short-fused. More than 50% of Filipinos sleep less than seven hours a night, which means there’s a lot of us weighed down with not having enough Zzzs.
Sleep plays a very important role in one’s health, having been involved in the healing and repairing of your heart and blood vessels, supporting physical growth and development, as well as maintaining a responsive immune system. Getting some downtime at the end of the day is an essential process for physical restoration.
That’s why taking care of your body – both physically and mentally – also means giving your body time to recharge. After a long day at work, take some time to recuperate. Exercising, eating healthy, and getting enough rest will help you keep your health in check and enjoy life more.
And if you can’t sleep, you can try Vicks ZzzQuil Natura Sleep. It’s currently available in Mercury Drug and Watsons.
