Restore Your Natural Sleep
An estimated 50-70 million US adults have difficulties with sleep.1 While a poor night’s sleep can certainly make the next day difficult, chronic sleeplessness is bad for your heart, mood, blood sugar control, and can even leads to weight gain. 2,3,4,5,6 Great HealthWorks Sleep Support is a natural supplement designed to help ensure a good night’s sleep while restoring your natural sleep cycle – all without feeling groggy in the morning.

• Melatonin - a natural hormone produced by the pineal gland that regulates the sleep and wake cycles.
• Chamomile - an herb that has been used for thousands of years to help induce calmness.
• Valerian - an herbal root that has traditionally been used for calming and relaxation.
• L-theanine - an amino acid found in green tea that helps to calm the brain and turn off “brain chatter”.
