Herbal Science

In this section we explore the science behind the key herbs and natural supplements that can help with insomnia. Research into this area is complex due to the number of different ways that improvement in sleep quality can be measured. This can vary from studies that simply ask volunteers if their sleep has improved, to highly scientific studies where volunteers sleep patterns are studied in laboratory conditions. In addition there are the usual issues of variability of dose, extraction method and trial duration, Another factor in sleep studies is that placebos often work surprisingly well!

Research quality can be also be variable as you cannot patent a herb so funding is limited.
