Insomnia is a sleep disorder in which people have trouble sleeping. Insomnia is typically followed by daytime sleepiness, low energy, irritability, and a depressed mood. People suffering from insomnia usually look for help from sleeping pills or hormone therapy, such as melatonin. But melatonin may have some side effects including making bleeding worse, making depression worse, increasing blood sugar in people with diabetes, raising blood pressure in people taking medicine to control it, and also not safe to pregnant women.
In fact, the help from some known natural herbs, such as reishi mushroom, is equally effective but safer. Studies recovered that the key components in reishi mushroom spores, such as Ganoderma polysaccharides and Ganoderma triterpenes, could significantly improve the physiological activities of the body, increase oxygen uptake in red blood cells, boost immune system, and enhance natural defenses. The Ganoderma adenosine extracted from reishi spores has a strong hypnotic effect on the central nervous system. It can help deepen sleep, and effectively improve neurasthenia and intractable insomnia.
