Sleep Like a Log With This Indian Trick
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
When you’re having trouble sleeping, it can make life miserable.
Even worse, poor sleep can take a real toll on your health over time.
But lots of the sleep aids you’ll find at your local drugstore are downright frightening. I’m talking about powerful knockout pills that leave you feeling like you were hit by a truck the next day.
Fortunately, there’s a better way.
You see, a recent study shows that an ancient Indian herb can help you get the sound, restorative sleep you deserve.
Even better, it’s safe and easy to get your hands on.
I’m talking about ashwagandha.
This incredible herb has been one of the pillars of ancient plant medicine for centuries because of its healing and calming powers.
Modern medicine has found it can help cure everything from anxiety to knee pain.
In the most recent study, Japanese researchers explored ashwagandha’s effect on sleep in mice.
The scientists fit the mice with special monitors that would record how well and how long the mice slept. Next, they gave the mice ashwagandha extract.
And what they found was incredible…
The ashwagandha extract helped the mice fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer!
Even better, these improvements were seen in the NREM sleep stage, which helps the body repair and regrow tissues, boosts the immune system and builds bones and muscles.
But the good news about ashwagandha doesn’t end there.
Other studies have shown ashwagandha can help regulate your blood sugar, fight cancer, reduce stress and even help boost testosterone.

You can pick up ashwagandha at natural health retailers or online from Vitacost.com. A month’s supply costs about $10. And you may never have to take dangerous drugs to enjoy a good night’s sleep ever again.
