Need a vaccine? Better get some sleep the night before


Are you planning on taking a vacation to another country soon? If so, you'll probably need to get a few vaccines, and you may want to grab an herbal insomnia supplement from Herbal Groups as well. No, the supplement isn't to help you combat jet lag (though it could). Rather, Restalex PM can help you get to sleep before you see your doctor for a shot, since research has shown that vaccines are more potent when a person is well-rested.

"With the emergence of our 24-hour lifestyle, longer working hours, and the rise in the use of technology, chronic sleep deprivation has become a way of life for many Americans," said lead author Aric Prather, Ph.D., a clinical health psychologist and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health & Society Scholar at the University of California, San Francisco.

Researchers from the University of California, San Francisco, found that individuals who slept at less than six hours a night were less likely to develop an antibody response to a common hepatitis B vaccine than those who get more sleep.

These findings are yet another example of how important sleep is to overall well-being. Individuals who are having trouble getting rest at night should look into taking an herbal insomnia supplement.
