Did you know that irregular sleep patterns are being called the new silent killer, being as detrimental to health as stress and poor diet? Studies show that those who chronically get less sleep than the “golden” 7-8 hours are at a higher risk for a number of diseases, are prone to weight gain, and are less able to deal with the effects of stress. People suffering from insomnia spend less time in deeper levels of sleep, wake up more often, and experience a reduction in REM sleep. In addition to stress, insomnia can be caused by a variety of other factors, including anxiety, poor diet, or a disruption of the body’s internal clock – such as jet lag, all-night study sessions, or changing work hours.
Ortho•Sleep™ is an award winning premium sleep and relaxation formula. The most important neurotransmitters known to regulate the sleep-wake cycle have been combined with the most powerful herbs traditionally used to promote sleep, yielding a natural sleep remedy like no other. Ortho•Sleep contains a carefully formulated blend of nutrients and compounds that have been shown to be effective in combating insomnia, restoring a proper circadian rhythm and promoting healthy, restful sleep. These include relaxing neurotransmitters GABA and melatonin, as well as 5-HTP, a serotonin precursor to reduce feelings of worry especially when trying to fall asleep. 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.

I requested to try this product hoping to take the natural route in helping my son to get a better nights sleep. Unfortunately for him, it did not work.
Made me trippy and then sleepy ! was fun taking it. Would recommend on a serious note. :):) (i am writing THIS just to make sure that this post has 140 words).
It took some time before I felt the effects. I like that it was natural and did not have any after effects. I feel refreshed and well rested. I would buy it.
This product was alright. I found that it didn't work as well as another sleep aid I had the opportunity to sample and review. I will say I felt like I had a slightly sounder sleep and I dreamt way more.
I found the product semi-useful. I'm not really sure if it helped me sleep, stay asleep, or it was my body that let me rest, and sleep through the night.
