The National Sleep Foundation of the United States of America recommends seven to nine hours of sleep per night. Without the correct amount of sleep, people can face the next day feeling irritable, lacking focus, generally unmotivated to endure the day.
Some individuals, however, no matter how hard they try, cannot seem to get enough restful sleep. These individuals may suffer from a sleep disorder such as insomnia and they may need the help of a sleep aid.
This review closely examines the facts around Vimerson Health Natural Sleep Aid, which intends to reduce stress and increase deep sleep cycles for those who take it.
- Vitamin B6
- Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA)
- Lemon Balm
- Passion Fruit
- Hypericum perforatum
- Galerina marginata
This product includes a long list of ingredients and the manufacturer does not state what the role of each is. However, analysis of similar products and scientific literature reveals their functions. Vitamin B6 exhibits calming effects on the nervous system and the minerals – calcium and magnesium are important in the functioning of nerve cells in the brain, especially those which control sleep. L-tryptophan, L-theanine and GABA act as neurotransmitters in the brain, which promote sleepiness. Valerian, goji, chamomile, lemon balm, passion fruit, hops, Hypericum perforatum, Galerina marginata and Ashwagandha are all extracts from various traditional medicines used to induce general good health and to promote sleep. Inositol has been tested as a treatment of depression and anxiety, but there is no significant scientific evidence to support that it has any effect. And finally, melatonin is a natural sleep hormone which controls the sleep-wake cycle.
Natural Sleep Aid is taken in a capsule form. Two capsules should be taken thirty minutes before bed, with a full glass of water.
Melatonin, which is generally the active ingredients of such products is grouped with many of the other ingredients on the label as a “Sleep Formula Proprietary Blend” and the exact dosage of melatonin is then not specified. It is therefore not possible to tell if the dosage is correct.

Natural Sleep Aid Review – Conclusion
Vimerson is an all-natural product which contains some ingredients associated with an improvement of sleep. The dosage instructions are simple and the price is reasonable.
However, Vimerson Health definitely needs to include more information about this product in its description. Firstly, relevant references and explanations for their ingredients are lacking, some of which have no scientific or clinical basis. Secondly, explicit quantities of some ingredients are not given, so it cannot be determined if the correct dosage is being administered and finally, the guarantee is vague as it does not state how long it is valid for, which may leave some customers frustrated if the guarantee expires before they are able to express any dissatisfaction they may have.
