Sleep Minerals is marketed as a safe natural inducing sleep supplement, in fact a mineral complex produced, developed and distributed by Dr. Tim Swift, a chiropractor from California. Instead of using herbs or pharmaceuticals that force the body to go into the sleep mode, the formula is designed to replace vital nutrients to help the body get a good night’s restful sleep.
Dr. Swift advertises it as the only natural, safe, fast acting, cost effective supplemental sleep aid on the market, but brings no objective evidence to support his statements. According to the manufacturer, the product can safely be used by children, pregnant or nursing women over long periods of time, with no negative effects on the liver or kidneys.
Sleep Minerals promises to reduce and finally eliminate the symptoms of insomnia from the first night of use.
Sleep Minerals Ingredients
Sleep Minerals contains the following ingredients: Vitamin D, Calcium, Iron, Iodine, Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Molybdenum, Potassium, Trace Mineral Complex, Boron, Di-Calcium Phosphate, and Magnesium Stearate.
Sleep Minerals is a multivitamin and mineral combination. Dr. Swift, the manufacturer, advertises the product as an all natural alternative to the herbal medicine and other sleep-forcing products. Instead Sleep Minerals operates by filling dietary deficiencies that potentially lead to sleeplessness.
Vitamin D, also called sunshine vitamin is synthesized by the human body when the sun exposure is adequate. It has a key role in bone health, and recent research has shown that vitamin D deficiencies contribute to sleep irregularities. Emerging evidence has shown that vitamin D may be harmful in large quantities (which can be reached through the use of supplements).
There is evidence that Calcium has a sedative effect on the body, especially if taken from food, whereas calcium deficiency may cause restlessness and wakefulness. Magnesium deficiency has been proven to be responsible for nervousness that prevents sleep.
The suggested dose of Sleep Minerals is one pill before bedtime. We recommend seeing a doctor before starting any type of supplement program.

Dr Swift’s product is claimed to have the advantage of concentrating its action on the underlying natural cause of the problem, not only on the projected wanted result, as herbal or classical medicine does. Although its inventor states it is 100% effective and safe for children and pregnant/nursing women use, no clinical trial evidence is provided to support these allegations.
With a composition of only vitamins and minerals, the Sleep Mineral Supplement treats dietary deficiencies as one of the many causes of sleeplessness. However, there may be other causes for sleep related problems, therefore correctly diagnosing and identifying the cause is mandatory for the product’s effectiveness. It is our strong recommendation that a healthcare provider is consulted before stating treatment.
