Nothing is better than a good night’s sleep but this is particularly critical in young children as sleep directly impacts mental and physical development. Poor or inadequate sleep can lead to mood swings, behavioral problems and cognitive problems that impact their ability to learn in school.
Studies have illustrated that rates of disturbed sleep are particularly high among children with Autism Spectrum disorder (ASD). Persistent sleep disturbances are known to have a negative effect on a child’s learning and behavior, which is particularly serious for children with ASD who already have difficulties in these areas.
Recently, researchers at the Arkansas Children’s Research Institute identified that approximately 90% of children diagnosed with autism have methylation impairments . Methylation impairment may alter the way the brain produces chemicals such as serotonin, dopamine, GABA, and glutamate which are critical to initiating a normal sleep pattern. Calm Focus supplies serotonin precursors, GABA and glutamate along with other natural ingredients that support healthy sleep onset and maintenance. Calm Focus may also be taken at a lower dose to combat daytime anxiety without the risk of over sedation or addiction.
