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. But if you've never heard of the anti-anxiety drug Serax, it's probably because 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.
After trying Many sleep products, Avinol is the only one that puts me out after about 20 to 30 minutes from taking it. Using the Extra Strength product, I usually get approximately 5 to 6 hours of sleep each night and there is no drug hangover.
Abinol PM really works!
This is the best sleep aid I have ever used.
Best So Far
I have tried many sleep aids over the past few years and Avinol PM seems to work the best, however, they are too expensive.
Really thankful for this product
Like some other reviewers said, Avinol is a bit pricey, but I think it's well worth it. Really helps me out at least. I don't have constant insomnia, but I often have strings of days where I just can't fall asleep easily. It has helped me during those nights. Been using it for the better part of a year now.
