Inflammation Causes Insomnia

Thursday, 23 February 2017 10:44 AM Current | Bio | Archive

Insomnia, along with generally poor sleep quality, is a growing problem in many nations.

The cause for this rise in sleep disorders can be put down to many factors, including stressful work environments, poor diets (excitotoxins in foods), microwave technology (cell phones, microwave towers), and excessive vaccinations.

Central to all of these factors is brain inflammation, which has been shown to consistently disrupt normal sleep cycles.

As we age, our brain manufactures less of its sleep-regulating chemical, melatonin. This plays a big role in the increase of sleep disorders.

While the decrease in melatonin generally occurs around age 50, it appears to be occurring at earlier ages in recent years.

One of the more effective treatments has been supplementing with melatonin, about 1 mg taken 30 minutes before going to bed.

However, I have found an even better sleep aid that works synergistically with melatonin: the flavonoid hesperidin.

The most effective dose is 500 to 1,000 mg, taken 30 minutes before bedtime along with melatonin.

Studies have shown that hesperidin calms the brain for about 4 to 6 hours.

If you wake up in the middle of the night, take an additional melatonin, or a combination of the melatonin and hesperidin. This produces a deep, restful sleep and one is not excessively tired in the morning.

Other effects of hesperidin include brain protection, reduced inflammation, and anticancer
