SleepDrops’ new sleep remedy

SleepDrops’ new sleep remedy

Natural sleep company, SleepDrops, have developed a new sleep remedy to help people to sleep through the night naturally.

SleepDrops Essential Sleep and Stress Nutrients - also known as, SleepDrops Powder - joins a number of products developed by Kirsten Taylor, one of New Zealand’s top sleep experts and founder of kiwi company SleepDrops.

With insomnia and sleep disturbances now affecting 47 per cent of the population worldwide, and more than 80 official sleep disorders recognised in adults, the issue of sleeplessness is a widespread problem.

SleepDrops Powder is a comprehensive formula containing Tart Cherry skin extract, a potent antioxidant which provides guaranteed levels of melatonin, a hormone essential for regulating body temperature, energy levels, anti-inflammatory responses and muscle fatigue. The formula also includes a high dose of Vitamin C and two types of magnesium for increased absorption and other essential cofactors to help bring overall balance to the body.

Kirsten says magnesium – known as the anti-stress mineral, is especially crucial in helping to keep the body and mind healthy. “Every cell in the human body has magnesium dependent processes and it is also helps to regulate the stress hormone, Cortisol, which can lead to poor quality sleep.

“More often than not it’s a range of nutrient deficiencies which lead to a bad night’s sleep. Vital nutrients can be used up more rapidly during times of stress, poor dietary choices, lack of sleep and just general daily living,” says Taylor.

SleepDrops’ natural remedies target the widespread problem of sleeplessness and insomnia. Helping people have a better night’s sleep is Kirsten’s mission and something she’s been assisting with over the past five years since SleepDrops began.

“I’ve worked really hard to develop a comprehensive sleep powder which incorporates ingredients that work together and complement one another to support healthy sleep and stress hormone production – leading to better sleep for everyone,” says Taylor.

SleepDrops powder supports the nervous system and immune system, as well as assisting with healthy liver function and cardiovascular well being.

SleepDrops Powder is available to purchase now from SleepDrops’ website ( and from all health stores and pharmacies nationwide for $35.00.
