How does Easy Sleep 40winx help you to sleep easy?
The Sleep-Stress Cycle is a vicious cycle. The less you sleep, the more you stress. The more you stress, the less you sleep! Thus, it is essential when trying to remedy sleeplessness that you concomitantly address both Sleep and Stress, a double dilemma.
Easy Sleep 40winx is a natural sleep remedy that addresses this Sleep and Stress Dilemma, as it contains two components:
- An Easy Sleep Component, and
- An Easy Wake Component.
There are 5 stages of the sleep cycle. The natural ingredients in the “Easy Sleep Component” target the different stages of the Sleep Cycle by its different modes of action.
Stage 1 of Sleep: Drowsiness
- Magnesium is the relaxation mineral.
- Chamomile is a mild tranquillizer and sleep inducer. Its mode of action is that it allows Apigenin to bind to the Benzodiazepine receptors in the brain initiating sleep.
- Passionflower alleviates anxiety and improves overall sleep quality. Its mechanism of action is that it boosts the level of GABA in the brain, lowering brain activity, assisting in relaxation and sleep.
Stages 3-4 of Sleep: Deep Sleep
- Glutamine calms and counteracts the symptoms of stress, strengthens the psyche and improves cerebral performance.

Why choose natural sleep remedies?
Many people do not realise how addictive sleeping pills can be!
Sleeping Pills are usually only prescribed for short-term use and often have an instant “knock-out” effect. They can also leave you feeling drowsy or groggy when you wake up after taking them. Sleep is a precious commodity in today’s modern world and people begin using sleeping pills anytime they have trouble sleeping or confront something in life that makes them feel stressed or anxious.
Scheduled sleeping pills fall into a category of drugs known as Sedative-Hypnotics. This category also includes Barbiturates and Benzodiazepines.
Because of the overlooked high risk of addiction of scheduled sleeping pills, if you are experiencing acute sleep loss from stress or a traumatic event, it is better to turn to natural sleeping aids or natural sleeping remedies first. Natural sleep aids are non-addictive and non-habit forming and may be able to throw you a natural “sleep” lifeline without any permanent addiction.
What to Look for in the Best Natural Sleeping Pills in South Africa
Sleep is essential. It is when your body and mind recover from life’s daily stresses. Without enough healthy sleep, your brain cannot function properly. It can impair your abilities to concentrate, think clearly, process memories, and regulate emotions. Furthermore, your body cannot recover and combat diseases effectively. The inability to sleep is called Insomnia.
There are several causes of Insomnia such as stress, anxiety, depression, poor sleep habits, circadian rhythm disorders (jet lag), taking certain medications, and snoring.
Some people might consider prescribed sleeping pills to help fix their Insomnia. In some instances, this may be necessary as a short-term treatment. However, generally they can do more harm than good, with unpleasant side effects such as prolonged drowsiness or grogginess, dizziness, and gastrointestinal problems, and some can be highly addictive and habit-forming.
If you are experiencing acute insomnia or acute sleep loss, and want a gentler solution, the best first option is natural sleeping pills.
There are three herbs to look for in natural sleeping pills:
- Passionflower helps reduce anxiety and improves overall sleep quality by increasing the amount of a neurochemical called GABA, which helps to quieten neural activity.
- Chamomile contains a chemical compound called Apigenin. This compound helps to induce sleepiness and reduce anxiety.
- Valerian Root induces sleep and improves sleep quality. It does this by increasing the levels of GABA in the brain.
These are the micronutrients to look for in natural sleeping pills.
- Magnesium is known as the relaxation mineral. This mineral helps to relax your muscles.
- Calcium helps the body use the amino acid tryptophan to make Melatonin – a hormone that helps you fall asleep and stay asleep.
- Vitamin B3 and B12 increase REM sleep by modulating melatonin secretion to ensure normal sleep patterns.
These herbs and micronutrients all work together to help you get that sweet slumber.
Easy Sleep 40winx is a non-addictive natural sleeping aid that contains a natural sleeping pill with Passionflower, Chamomile, Valerian Root, Magnesium and Calcium to aid in going to sleep. Easy Sleep 40winx also contains a second “wake up and go” pill for the mornings that contains B-Complex vitamins for energy for the day.
What is the difference between sleeping pills and natural sleep remedies?
Sleeping pills and natural sleep remedies are two different approaches to treating sleep problems, and they differ in several ways.
Sleeping pills are medications that are designed to help people fall asleep or stay asleep. They work by altering the chemicals in the brain that regulate sleep and wakefulness. Some common types of sleeping pills include benzodiazepines, non-benzodiazepine hypnotics, and melatonin agonists. These medications are generally effective at inducing sleep, but they can also have side effects, such as drowsiness, dizziness, and impaired cognitive function. They can also be habit-forming and may lead to dependence or addiction.
Natural sleep remedies, on the other hand, are non-medical approaches to improving sleep quality. They may include lifestyle changes, such as establishing a regular sleep routine, avoiding caffeine and alcohol before bedtime, and creating a comfortable sleep environment. Other natural remedies may include relaxation techniques, such as meditation or yoga, or herbal supplements, such as valerian root or chamomile tea. These natural remedies are generally considered safe and do not have the potential side effects or risks associated with sleeping pills.
Overall, the main difference between sleeping pills and natural sleep remedies is that sleeping pills are medications that alter brain chemistry to induce sleep, while natural sleep remedies are non-medical approaches to promoting healthy sleep habits and relaxation. While both approaches can be effective, it’s essential to discuss the risks and benefits of each with a healthcare provider to determine the best approach for your specific sleep problems.
