What causes insomnia?
There are many potential causes of insomnia, including sleep apnea, snoring, bladder or prostate problems, stress or depression.
People who are over 60 years old and women going through the menopause are more prone to insomnia, probably due to decreased levels of melatonin in the brain.
Other causes of insomnia include ‘restless legs’ syndrome (RLS), magnesium or iron deficiency, hormonal imbalance, shift work and excessive consumption of caffeine or other stimulants.
Insomnia is also a side effect of some prescription anti-depressant medication.
It is thought that more than 50% of all cases of insomnia are linked to psychological causes, including depression, anxiety and stress.
Prescription sleeping medication can be addictive and can affect your ability to fall asleep naturally.

How has SerenitePlus helped others?
“I have tried many natural products to try and help me to sleep. None of them has helped me like SerenitePlus.” Kay F., Canada
“I am a pensioner and for the last 6 years, I have not been able to fall asleep as I used to do. Maybe it is because I am not as active as before, although I try and walk a little with the dogs every day! I have been very pleased with the results of your remedy, which relaxes me and helps me to fall asleep. Thank you for answering all my questions!” B.C., George.
“After some relationship troubles I found myself worrying and obsessing every night and no matter what I did I could not let go and fall asleep. This remedy really does the trick. It feels just like natural sleep because I become drowsy and relaxed and then can’t remember when I fell asleep. No problems in the morning when I wake up unlike the tablets my doctor gave me once before and which I took only once!” Golden Girl.
