The Harmful Effects of Sleep Deprivation
As an adult or young adult, it may not come as a surprise that a large portion of North America’s population suffers from sleep deprivation or insufficient sleep. Whether it’s because of school or work, sleep debt is on the rise. However, what may be surprising is the negative and harmful side-effects that are caused due to long-term sleep debt.
Most commonly, being in a chronic sleep-restricted state can lead to fatigue, daytime sleepiness, headaches, aching muscles, and clumsiness. But, in more extreme cases sleep debt can lead to changes in appearance such as weight loss or weight gain and periorbital puffiness, commonly known as eye bags; or negative changes to one’s mental state such as confusion, memory lapses or loss, depression, irritability, and violent behaviour. During the winter season, it may also be important to prevent sleep debt as a lack of rest can decrease immunity, therefore increasing susceptibility to illness.

OTC Medication: The Most Common Solution
Of course, the average person facing severe sleep deprivation and insomnia will turn to commonly used Over the Counter (OTC) medication such as melatonin, antihistamines, and antidepressants.
While these solutions may be easy to obtain, they also come with a wide range of side-effects. In fact, a study focusing on the potential effects of daytime fatigue and cognitive impairments found that generally the risk of taking sleep-inducing medication often outweighs the benefits as taking such medication can lead to increased dependence and accidents.
GinEx: The Best Solution
While OTC medications may fail to provide an effective product with minimal side-effects, GinEx is different from any other available “sleep-aids.” Whereas other sleep-aids only work to induce sleep, GinEx: American Ginseng Extract works to enhance brain functions in order to help you obtain a restful sleep.
Proven to enhance one’s cognitive performance and mood, American ginseng can improve your memory, calmness and overall attitude (R). This is because ginseng and ginsenosides help rescue nerve cells and increase cell survival, thereby positively impacting the nervous system (R).
According to Phytochemistry: The International Journal of Plant Chemistry, Plant Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, while other forms of ginseng (such as Asian ginseng) can stimulate the central nervous system, American ginseng is unique in its ability to calm the central nervous system (R). So, when it comes to finding the right solution for sleep deprivation, GinEx: American Ginseng Extract is the best choice. Different from any other sleep medication, GinEx helps you achieve a natural and restful sleep by improving brain functions. Try it out GinEx today to truly experience its amazing benefits!
