Asphalia is a natural herbal supplement derived from wheatgrass and barley grass which contains physiological levels of the sleep hormone, melatonin. The pineal gland in the brain normally produces sufficient melatonin but its production declines with age, with stress and with hormonal imbalances. Asphalia restores melatonin levels in the body and hence aids restful sleep helping to regulate and extend the sleep cycle time.
Novel therapies for Seasonal Affective Disorder that are attracting attention include the hormone melatonin. Asphalia contains naturally occuring melatonin.
Taking Asphalia may extend your healthy, productive life span. As one ages, the body produces less natural antioxidants, affecting sleep, immunity and other defences vital for protection against ageing. Asphalia contains natural levels of Vitamins C,E,B6 and beta carotene and also contains physiological levels of a natural sleep hormone made in the brain. There have been recent suggestions in the scientific literature that this hormone is deficient in disorders such as autism and some kinds of neurological dysfunction. It has been established that supplementation with its natural equivalent derived from plant materials can be used by the body.
