In this video, Dr. Andrew Rubman, naturopathic physician and author of Bottom Line’s “Nature Doc’s Patient Diary” blog, talks about supplements that can help you get a better night’s sleep. First, a small drop of progesterone applied directly to the skin shortly before bedtime can have a calming influence. Progesterone is a transdermal hormone supplement and should be taken under a doctor’s supervision. Also, botanicals such as valerian, hops, and skullcap can help people get better sleep. Magnesium and calcium supplements also help improve sleep quality.
