What Is It?
Ortho• Sleep is AOR's premium sleep and relaxation formula. The most important neurotransmitters known to regulate sleep have been combined with the most powerful herbs traditionally used to promote sleep, yielding a product like no other.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: Ortho• Sleep contains a carefully formulated blend of nutrients and compounds that have been shown to be effective in combating insomnia and promoting and restoring healthy, restful sleep. These include neurotransmitters like GABA and melatonin, as well as 5-HTP, a serotonin precursor. The formula further includes the amino acid L-theanine as well as valerian root, passionflower extract, and lemon balm, all of which possess relaxing properties and work to increase the activity of GABA in the brain.
Who Should Take It?
Ortho• Sleep is perfect for those who have difficulty with any stage of sleep, including falling asleep, staying asleep, or feeling rested upon awaking. Ortho• Sleep may help in cases of jet-lag, shift work or insomnia. Some people may require a larger or smaller dose than others. Ortho• Sleep may work quickly for some but take longer to work for others based on individual body chemistry and the reason for the sleep issues. If you have used the individual ingredients found in the formula with no success, Ortho• Sleep may offer a more powerful natural solution.
