    If you're struggling to get some shut eye then you may have thought about natural sleep aids. Indeed, it makes sense to take advantage of natural methods before making a trip to the doctors. After all, a doctor will often suggest natural sleep aids as a first port call. Whilst it might be tempting to ask for prescription sleeping tablets, the negatives can often outweigh the positives.

    Sleep Aid # 2 Chamomile

As with Valerian, this because it is believed to have calming properties that can help us unwind from the stresses of the day. It has been argued that it has this effect because it contains an antioxidant called apigenin.
