I take the Rite Aid Sleep Aid every night. I used to take the
ZZZ Quil so I can get to sleep every night at the same time.
I noticed the ingredients were Diphenhydramine HCL 25mg. After
some searching I found Rite Aid had a Diphenhydramine HCL 25 mg
also, for $10.20 less. I tried the Rite Aid brand, and it works
exactly the same! I save $360.00 per year with the Rite Aid Brand.
200 Caplets, lasts over three months! A good savings!
L-Tryptophan is an all-natural dietary supplement commonly used
to counter insomnia. The active ingredient, tryptophan is found
in many everyday dietary sources and has long been associated
with sleep induction.
L-tryptophan is used for insomnia and sleep apnea. The two main
biomolecules that are involved in the production of normal
sleep-the neurotransmitter serotonin and the hormone
melatonin-are both naturally made from tryptophan in the body.
That makes tryptophan a tremendously valuable supplement for
those whose sleep is lacking in either quantity or quality.
Studies dating back to the late 1970s have demonstrated that
taking between 1 and 15 grams of tryptophan at bedtime can help
you fall sleep. Even doses as little as 250 milligrams were
found to increase the quality of sleep by lengthening the amount
of time spent in the deepest stage of sleep.
During the 1980s, many additional studies demonstrated the
benefits of taking 1,000 mg or more of tryptophan at bedtime.
Significant improvements were shown in subjective reports of
sleepiness such as a decrease in the time to fall asleep,
decreased total wakefulness, and an increase in total sleep
time. These studies showed their most impressive results in
people with mild insomnia, or in those with above-average time
it takes to fall asleep.
Those who take tryptophan at bedtime are more likely to wake up
with increased alertness, to have clearer thinking, and to
perform better on attention-requiring tasks. Unlike sleeping
pill drugs, tryptophan induces sleepiness but does not impair
performance or produce dependence, nor does it make it harder to
be roused from sleep when necessary.
To support restful sleep, take 3 tablets before bed - Or as
directed by your healthcare professional.
