Ingredients & Benefits
Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland in the brain that helps maintain the body’s circadian rhythm, or internal clock, which controls your sleep and wake cycles. Melatonin is commonly used to address sleep disturbance and insomnia.
Valerian Root is an herb known for its sedative properties, and is used to ease insomnia and stress. Skullcap is a powerful medicinal herb that is used to help calm nerves and to address a variety of nervous issues such as sleeplessness and anxiety.
L-Tryptophan is an essential amino acid. Our bodies can’t produce it so it must be acquired from food or in supplement form. L-Tryptophan is critical in the natural production of serotonin, which is known to help regulate mood, appetite, and sleep.
5-HTP increases the levels of serotonin in the brain which is responsible for mood, hunger and sleep. Serotonin helps to carry messages from one area of the brain to another.
Hops are used in herbal remedies to exert a sedative effect on your central nervous system, thereby reducing locomotor activity and body temperature, while promoting sleep.
Passion Flower is used as a calming herb to help address insomnia and anxiety. Scientists believe passionflower increases levels of a chemical in the brain called gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA), which lowers the activity of nerve cells, making people feel more calm and relaxed.
Chamomile is an herb often used as a sleep aid. It contains glycine, an amino acid, known to relax nerves and thereby helping people sleep more soundly.
