Frequently Asked Questions
What is the COMPLETE Alteril® 1-2-3 Easy Sleep System?
More than just another sleeping pill, the COMPLETE Alteril® 1-2-3 Easy Sleep System has been designed to help you create a healthy sleep routine... so you can more easily beat your sleep problems and get the restful night's sleep you need!
- A nighttime capsule, formulated with the four most popular, proven effective natural sleep-inducing herbals (L-Tryptophan, Melatonin, Valerian, and Theanine).
- A deep sleep tea, with a special blend of herbals with sedatative properties.
- Plus, the binaural beats CD which helps entrain your brain to a meditative state using low frequency, alternating beats.
Simply take the capsule, settle back with a cup of the tea, and listen to the CD... Ideally in bed! Because as you'll see, this 1-2-3 combination induces sleep quickly, making it easy for you to drift off.
How does the Alteril®nighttime capsule work?
Alteril® contains ingredients that are shown to induce and improve sleep. The four primary ingredients are L-Tryptophan, Melatonin, Valerian, and L-Theanine.
It helps to regulate your circadian "sleep" cycle and increase alpha "relaxation" brain waves – so you drift off to sleep easily, enjoy a full night of restorative sleep, and wake feeling rested and restored... without any groggy "hang over" side effects!
When should I take the Alteril®nighttime capsule?
Alteril® should be taken approximately one hour before bed.
How does the Deep Sleep Herbal Tea work?
The Deep Sleep Herbal Tea helps further induce a state of deep relaxation with a caffeine-free blend of whole leaf herbals designed to help calm and soothe you before bed! It includes a heady combination of Chamomile, Lavender, Spearmint, Lemon Verbena, and Linden, all with proven sleep inducing effects.
How does the Binaural Beats CD work?
For best results, you should settle into bed listening to the Binaural Beats CD with headphones.
The gentle, almost hypnotic pulsing rhythms of the low frequency binaural beats actually coax your subconscious brain to the alpha, theta, and delta frequencies commonly associated with deep relaxation and sleep.
It works as two beats of a similar frequency are played, tricking your brain into "hearing" a third phantom beat.
For example, when a 220 Hz carrier tone is played into the left ear and a 226.5 Hz carrier tone is played into the right ear, your brain "hears" a beat frequency of 6.5 Hz -- a frequency commonly associated with meditative trances!
Can I drive after taking Alteril®?
No, like with any sleep aid, operating a car or machinery or participating in any other potentially hazardous activities is strongly discouraged.
Can I give Alteril® to children?
We do not recommend that children take Alteril®; it was formulated with the adult physiology in mind.
Can I take Alteril® if I'm pregnant?
We do not recommend that women who are pregnant, planning to get pregnant, or breastfeeding take Alteril® until you speak with your health care provider. He or she will be able to give you the best recommendation for your particular situation.
