Treat the torture of sleep deprivation

Sleep deprivation has been used throughout history as a form of torture and for good reason, the effects of drowsiness on a person’s health, mind and cognitive ability are debilitating. While sleep torture may officially be a thing of the dark ages millions of people are still being haunted by a good night sleep. In fact, studies from the Sleep Health Foundation in Australia shows 25-35% of all Australians report issues with sleeping. That is a lot of restless nights.

Sleep is a fundamental biological requirement for human health but one undervalued in the community, compared to weight or exercise issues. Studies show sleeping less than six or seven hours on average per night may increase the risk for obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease.

While there have been a range of pharma treatments prescribed to help sleep sufferers such as benzodiazepines, antidepressants, and over-the-counter antihistamine, none of these are specifically designed to treat sleep disorders and therefore result in a varying range of efficacy and side effects.

Natural solution  

Melatonin replacement therapy is a valid therapeutic approach that is used to treat sleep difficulties and disorders. It is a naturally occurring hormone, produced by the pineal gland that bodies use for sleep. It essentially helps run what many people term your body clock.  Melatonin production peaks during teenage years, with subsequent age-related decline, which can account for the common complaint of poor sleep among the elderly. Unlike other drug-based treatments, melatonin induced sleep follows a more normal sleep pattern.

If sleep evades you regularly it might be worth speaking with your doctor about the benefits of Melatonin therapy. Compounding chemists like National Custom Compounding can ensure doses are more specific and tailored to your needs. The standard prescriptions from mass produced options is only 2mg but for many this may not be an effective dose. We can make Sustained Release and Immediate Release Melatonin compounding for different strengths, with the guarantee of it ready for collection on the same day.

Imagine what a full night’s sleep might do for you.

"The standard of service from NCC staff (is) excellent"

Dear Matthew,

I just wanted to commend the staff of National Custom Compounding (NCC). On each contact with NCC the staff have been extremely helpful and the service has been outstanding.

I live in the Penrith area and from placing my order to receipt of my order is 4 days maximum. My order is only a small order but the standard of service from NCC  staff excellent.

Kind regards Chris
