For the immune system to be protected, experts recommend 7-8 hours of sleep each night. Sleep enhances immune defense and a lack of it can affect the immune system. Studies have shown how people who don't get enough sleep have a higher risk of illness. Not getting enough sleep can also impact the time it takes for the body to recover. Consider taking a drug-free sleep aid such as Natrol Melatonin Time Release. Time Release Tablets are available in 1 mg, 3 mg, and 5 mg formulas.

Did you know the B vitamin family is made up of eight B vitamins? That’s a lot of mouths to feed. The members include thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, folic acid, biotin, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12. They are commonly referred to as a group (we like to call them a family) because these vitamins often work together in the body, but each B vitamin has its own important role to play.
