Does Nytol Herbal work?

6th March 2020

Insomnia can be very disruptive and can leave you feeling tired, irritable and unable to concentrate. There are a number of causes of insomnia (including stress, a new sleeping environment or emotional distress) but thankfully there are a number of treatments too, including cognitive behavioural therapy, sleeping tablets and herbal remedies such as Nytol Herbal.

Does Nytol Herbal work?

Nytol Herbal is used for the temporary relief of sleep disturbances, based on traditional use. It contains 3 main ingredients; Valerian, Hop Strobile and Passion Flower.

Valerian root is a natural sleep aid that has been shown to promote relaxation and reduce anxiety. Passion flower is a similar natural relaxant and can be used to treat mild anxiety and stress, as well as induce sleep. On the other hand, Hop Strobile can increase the time spent asleep thanks to its natural sedative effect.

The tricky thing with insomnia treatment is that no one thing is proven to work for everyone. Conditions such as high blood pressure or asthma are well understood and have many different treatment options that a doctor or prescriber may recommend for a patient based on age, gender and medical history.

However, insomnia requires much more of a trial and error approach. Some people suffer from short spells of insomnia during times of stress or change, while others suffer from chronic insomnia that only prescription-strength sleeping tablets can help with.

If you’re suffering with insomnia then the important thing is to start with lifestyle changes. Cut down on alcohol, make sure that your bedroom is dark and peaceful and try to stick to a consistent sleeping routine.

If you’re still experiencing disturbed sleep then try Nytol Herbal, which can make you feel relaxed and sleepy and ready for a good night's sleep. For those who notice no improvement, you may require a pharmacy-grade treatment like Nytol One-a-night or a prescription-only medication such as Zopiclone or Zolpidem.

What’s the difference between Nytol One-a-night and Nytol Herbal?

Nytol Herbal is an over-the-counter product that is based on traditional herbal remedies, while Nytol One-a-night is a pharmacy product that contains Diphenhydramine, which is an antihistamine. 

Like many antihistamines, Diphenhydramine is known for its sedating quality, which can make users feel sleepy or drowsy. Therefore, it’s not always the first choice for allergy sufferers, but it can be very useful for insomnia sufferers.

While Nytol Herbal is based on traditional herbal remedies and can be bought by anyone from a shop (because it’s an over-the-counter product), Nytol One-a-night is scientifically proven and can only be dispensed by from a pharmacy. This could be the one on your high street or through and online clinic like UK Meds.
