1. Insomnia linked to heart failure and stroke

    How sleepless nights could trigger frightening damage

    Just another night of missed sleep… another bleary-eyed morning… and another pot of coffee to get you through it.

    Well, friend, that caffeine might help you power through your morning.

    But it can’t fix something else.

    Your sleepless nights can do something far worse than make you feel run down, worn out and just plain sapped of all your energy.

    They could cause DEADLY damage, deep inside your body.

    And if you’ve been missing out on sleep… night after night… then consider this your wakeup call.

    It’s time to take action and solve the hidden cause of your own sleep problem...

    Because if you don’t act soon, your LIFE could be on the line!

    Revealed: the TRUE risk of sleep loss

    It’s not just a bedtime story: Your cells take a beating when you don’t sleep.

    Your body has a natural process to repair and restore itself, but a key part of it takes place during your downtime.

    When you’re up when you SHOULD be down, that rejuvenation never happens.

    And, ever so slowly, damage to your cells becomes damage to your organs, your arteries, your brain and beyond.

    In the new study, folks with the gene that often signifies a predisposition to insomnia had a higher risk of:

    • Heart disease
    • Heart failure
    • Stroke

    The risk is especially high for what’s called a “large artery stroke”—and if that sounds ominous, you’re right.

    Think of a big tree; the large arteries are the main branches that come off the trunk, with smaller branches coming off each of those.

    When you cut off a larch branch you’re not only cutting off the branch itself, but the smaller ones that emerge from it.

    It’s like that in your brain, too. A stroke in a smaller blood vessel can cause less damage because it delivers blood to a much smaller part of the brain.

    But when it’s a large artery, all bets are off.

    The large arteries deliver blood to larger parts of the brain. They also feed those smaller arteries that branch off from it.

    That means in a large artery stroke, blood flow is cut off from ALL of that… impacting much larger parts of the brain.

    Those are the strokes that do the most damage and have the highest potential to leave behind both cognitive decline and physical disability.

    And it could all begin from the damage of sleepless nights!

    If you’ve been suffering from sleepless nights… or, worse yet, if they happen so frequently you now consider them to be “normal” for you… it’s time to take action…

    Ironic, considering what you need is the OPPOSITE of action.

    You need complete inaction as your body rests, recovers, repairs and rejuvenates.

    And you can get it, too.

    One of the fastest, safest and most effective ways to get a full night of sleep tonight and every night is melatonin.

    It’s called the “sleep hormone” because your body makes it at night, as a means of signaling bedtime.

    But as you get older, your body gets much less efficient at making it.

    That means you need a melatonin pick-me-up in order to settle yourself down.

    It’s easily found as capsules and such, but for the fastest and most effective results look for a form that dissolves in your mouth. That allows it to go directly into the bloodstream so it kicks in right away, and you can fall asleep within minutes.

  2. ERASE hidden sleep problems with this powerful herb

    ERASE hidden sleep problems with this powerful herb

    Right now, millions of Americans are suffering from a “hidden” sleep problem.

    It’s a disorder that disguises itself so well that many folks never even think they have a sleep problem at all.

    They don’t toss and turn. They don’t wake up in the middle of the night and struggle to fall back asleep. And they don’t find themselves staring at the clock at 5 a.m. wondering why they keep waking up so early.

    They get a full night of rest.

    Yet something’s wrong. They know it — even if they can’t quite put their finger on it.

    It’s the old quantity vs. quality issue, as good sleep isn’t just a matter of hitting a certain number of hours.

    You also need the right kind of sleep, because poor sleep quality can leave you feeling crummy all day.

    And it’s a problem that’s especially common among older folks.

    It’s time to fight back, and a new study has just the ticket for getting better rest tonight and every night.

    It’s simple, safe, inexpensive, and widely available.

    This natural herbal therapy has the power to improve your quality of sleep, so you wake up ready to hit the ground running the moment your feet hit the bedroom floor.

    The answer is chamomile.

    This humble, daisy-like flower is known for its sweet scent and power to soothe the mind and restore calm, which can be especially effective at night.

    In the new study, chamomile went head-to-head against a placebo in folks over the age of 70 who were battling low sleep quality.

    The folks who got the real deal didn’t get more sleep. They got something even more important.

    They got BETTER sleep with big-time improvements in quality, which allowed them to wake up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated instead of groggy and foggy.

    All from a little chamomile!

    Of course, many of us don’t just have a problem with sleep quality.

    There’s also the bigger issue: Too many Americans simply aren’t getting enough rest.

    They struggle to fall asleep and wake up too often in the night.

    Chamomile can help there, too.

    While the new study didn’t find that it can increase the amount of sleep time, I’ve seen research that shows it can. Chamomile is even more effective when you combine it with other natural sleep aids such as valerian and passionflower.

    You can usually find all three available as a supplement or — even better — a relaxing evening tea that’ll go down great an hour or so before bed.
