An even more powerful version of Avinol PM Original Strength, this formula contains a collection of potent herbal ingredients which are strongly associated with relaxation and sleep quality. This blend uses natural botanicals which can address multiple causes of poor sleep quality with a single dose. These ingredients include Hops, GABA, Chamomile, Passion Flower, 5-HTP, Lemon Balm, and Melatonin.
How To Use
As a dietary supplement, adults take one (1) tablet with an evening meal for relief from occasional sleeplessness. Not intended for use by those with medical conditions affecting sleep patterns.
Avinol PM Extra Strength contains the following natural ingredients:
Valerian Extract - this sweet-smelling flower, once used as a perfume during the 16th century, is now a popular natural sleep aid. In one double-blind study, 89% of participants reported getting better sleep when supplementing with valerian extract. Together with lemon balm extract and hops, valerian can synergistically increase the amount of GABA in the brain.
GABA - increasing your overall GABA levels, especially at night, is a great way to alleviate anxiety and improve your quality of sleep. Natural GABA supplements are proven to cross the blood-brain barrier, rendering them more effective. GABA reduces hyperactivity in the brain, leading to elevated feelings of relaxation.
Melatonin - in low-light environments, the brain releases higher levels of melatonin. Melatonin is a natural hormone that signals the body to relax in preparation for sleep each night. But when you surround yourself with bright lights, especially light from television or phone screens, you produce less melatonin. In such cases, supplementation is beneficial.
5-HTP - like naturally-derived GABA, 5-HTP is a plant-derived amino acid which effectively crosses the blood-brain barrier. Once there, it can be converted into serotonin, which helps reduce anxiety, and can further be converted into melatonin to aid with sleep. It also works with GABA to make you feel relaxed and ready for bed.
Chamomile - people have been using chamomile for hundreds of years to help with anxiety, restlessness, and sleep problems. When used in conjunction with synergistic sleep herbs, like hops and valerian, it adds a little extra boost to the effectiveness of GABA in the brain. As recently as 1996, scientists have discovered that not only can chamomile mimic the calming effects of benzodiazepines, but it does so without all the dangerous side effects that such prescription drugs often cause.
Hops - Hops extract for sleep is one of those folk cures that was basically discovered by accident. In the early days of hops farming, field workers were often caught sleeping on the job. Fast-forward several hundred years later, when scientists finally realized after extensive research that this phenomenon was no coincidence. In fact, the scientific evidence for hops as a calming herbal compound is so strong that the German government has authorized it as an anxiety and insomnia cure by medical professionals.
Lemon Balm - Lemon balm extract is often used in conjunction with hops and chamomile for anxiety and sleep problems. Together, these botanicals promote alpha wave activity in the brain, which reduces anxious feelings and helps you fall asleep more easily.
Passion Flower - Anxiety is one of the biggest reasons people have trouble sleeping at night, which has led to the popularity of anti-anxiety prescriptions. Passion flower extract is a cheaper and safer alternative with a comparable level of effectiveness. And this isn't just conjecture - this is according to advanced research from the University of Maryland Medical Center.
So far, this product seems to be working better than most sleeping pills. The only down side is that it’s not a gel cap which would allow for easier swallowing.
I've been using it for 2 weeks and it does help me fall asleep faster, but I still wake up about 5 hours later. It doesn't make you feel groggy in the morning and it does have a good grape like flavor that dissolves in your mouth. I think I am sleeping a little better using it.
It is a helpful sleep aid!
Works most of the time
When it’s working it’s great, but still have occasional “no sleep” nights which are generally caused by over stimulation.
Avinol PM is a gentle, herbal sleep aid formulated to help you fall asleep faster, stay asleep all night, and wake up refreshed.
• How does Avinol PM work?
Avinol PM contains calming, anxiety-reducing herbs like lemon balm, chamomile, and L-theanine which make the process of falling asleep effortless and smooth. Melatonin ensures you get tired when you are supposed to, while supporting a healthy circadian rhythm and consistent sleep patterns. 5-HTP boosts serotonin to improve both mood and sleep quality, so you can wake up refreshed and energized.
