Can a Wuling capsule cure insomnia?

Today I want to explore the effectiveness of one of the myriad 'natural insomnia remedies' out there.

Wuling is a type of fungus found in China. Wuling capsules are typically made from a powdered form of the mushroom.

According to Chinese medicine, Wuling is thought to aid sleep and treat insomnia due to its tranquilizing effect on the central nervous system.

Chinese researchers performed a double-blind study to determine just how effective Wuling capsules are when it comes to improving sleep.

The study involved just under 200 individuals. Half were given the Wuling capsule treatment and half received a placebo over the course of four weeks.

Two weeks after the trial ended, both groups saw improvements in their sleep. However, there was no significant difference between the Wuling capsule group and the placebo group.

So the conclusion is that Wuling capsules can help improve sleep - but they're only as effective as a placebo. Perhaps that's no surprise when it's thought that half of the effectiveness of prescription sleeping pills comes from the placebo effect and not the drug itself.
