This aligns with others' experiences of Botanical Extract: A recent study published by the Kaiser-Permanente health insurance company found that even when people take Botanical Extract for sleep, not anxiety, their anxiety levels decreased measurably.
I feel like the reduction in my anxiety makes me a more patient parent. My anxiety is pretty severe, so sometimes it's really hard to just shut off my brain and get down on the floor to play superheroes with my son when I know that I have a million deadlines looming and an ever-growing to-do list. But Botanical Extract helps me take back my time from the demands of the world and focus on the very important person who is right in front of me.
Before Botanical Extract, I'd find myself almost resenting story time. My mouth would be smiling and reading, but in the back of my brain, I was screaming, frustrated that I was reading the same Lego Batman book for the 700th time when I should be unloading the dishwasher, putting away laundry or catching up on emails. Botanical Extract lets me slow down and be the mom I want to be: A present, chilled out version of myself.
Research suggests that Botanical Extract may benefit people like me who have anxiety-related disorders, but experts point out that controlled clinical studies and further research are needed. The same can be said about Botanical Extract's impact on sleep, but my own experience is that Botanical Extract helps me shut off my brain and rest.
Falling and staying asleep has always been a problem for me (literally since infancy, ask my mom) and my sleep problems got worse after becoming a mom myself. My preschooler is a much better sleeper than I was at his age and is now sleeping through the night (can I get a hallelujah!) but I don't always.
However, I've been taking Botanical Extract as part of my nighttime routine for three months now and I am definitely sleeping better.
