ReDormin (Ze1019) is a dietary supplement that features a combination of herbal extracts advertised as effective in relieving sleeplessness and insomnia. The formula is produced by an Australian manufacturer of nutritional supplements called Flordis Natural Medicines. The number of formulas developed and marketed by this supplier is relatively low (at the moment of this review there are approximately 10 such products available on the market. The advantage of some these supplements is that they are clinically shown in human trials to be effective in treating the conditions that they were created for
This is also the case of ReDormin, an herbal formulation marketed as clinically shown to improve sleep quality and decrease the time taken to get to sleep. No actual evidence is provided to support this fact. The formula is suitable for teenagers over 12 years old and adults, who suffer from sleeping problems, want to improve their sleeping patterns, regulate sleep patterns (jet lag, shift workers), and enjoy the benefits of an uninterrupted and less agitated sleep.
The supplement is advertised to feature a specific combination of two plants: Valerian and Hops that has been most commonly used in clinical trials and human studies until now. This is what makes the difference between this formula and products that contain the same active substances but in other concentrations and ratios. It is also an important indicator of the formula’s safety and potency.
ReDormin contains the following ingredients: Valerian (Valerian officinalis) and Hops (Humulus lupulus)
ReDormin is a plant based dietary supplement.
One of its active ingredients is the Valerian plant, a popular natural remedy used for centuries to treat sleeping problems and anxiety related symptoms. The part used in the composition of dietary supplements is the root which is believed to be the one responsible for the plant’s sedative and anxiolytic effects. The extracts of these plant are believed to work by stimulating the GABA receptors (those who also respond to the action of the chief inhibitory neurotransmitter Gama Aminobutyric Acid), but clinical research regarding its specific effects on the overall health is still inconclusive.
The Valerian root is currently prescribed for numerous other health issues including migraines, PMS, abdominal cramps, rheumatic pain, etc. The main advantage is that Valerian is a non-addictive treatment, making it preferable for those who have suffered from addiction to prescription medication. The main disadvantages associated are the sedative effect (that may cause drowsiness and impair with one’s ability to operate machinery and drive) and a relatively high number of drug interactions (including alcohol).
Hops is another popular remedy recommended against sleeping problems. Humulus lupus, as it is known to the scientific community, has been used as a natural anti-anxiety remedy for hundreds of years. The plant is also an excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory product. It is recommended to alleviate PMS symptoms, prevent the formation of cancerous tumors, protect against infections (including in HIV patients), promote weight loss, and protect the cardiovascular system. Hop is considered likely safe for adults when consumed in moderate doses. Minor side effects have been reported in the form of stomach distress, vomiting, and diarrhea. Children and breastfeeding/nursing women are advised not to consume Hops based products except specifically recommended by a healthcare practitioner.
The suggested dose for ReDormin is 2 tablets daily before bedtime. The formula is recommended for adults and adolescents over 12 years old.
