Sleep is a physiological process that occurs in humans and animals and is defined as a recurrent state of reduced attention to the surrounding environment. The most important functions of sleep are the restoration of body functions, synthesis of proteins, and the prevention of lethargy. The number of sleep hours required varies from individual to individual.

 An adult person needs 6 to 8 hours of good sleep daily to be alert during the day.Today the inability to sleep plagues millions of people. Sleeping pills, including tranquilizers, represent the most prescribed group of medications. Rather than simply treating the symptom, nutritional research reveals that biochemical causes of insomnia can be addressed by nutritional therapy, often resulting in permanent alleviation of sleep difficulties.
