L-Theanine 

L-Theanine is a non-essential amino acid commonly found in black and green tea leaves and plays a fundamental role in maintaining a healthy mental state. Research indicates L-theanine promotes healthy, fast-acting relaxation without causing drowsiness. L-theanine supplementation has grown in popularity in recent years to help people ease stress and unwind.

L-Theanine Is Used For Stress and Anxiety Relief 

Besides water, tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the entire world. Tea is known not only for its wide variety of flavors and types but also for its unique amino acid, L-theanine. As reported by Unilever Food and Health Research Institute, "evidence from human electroencephalograph (EEG) studies show that L-theanine has a direct effect on the brain. L-theanine significantly increases activity in the alpha frequency band which indicates that it relaxes the mind without inducing drowsiness." 

Valerian Root Extract 

Valerian root is an herb native to Europe and Asia and is now also grown in the US and China among other countries. The name "valerian" is derived from the Latin verb  "valere" which means "force" or "to be strong." Valerian root is used to help treat a variety of conditions including but not limited to: 

  • Insomnia
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Symptoms of Menopause

How Does Valerian Root Work? 

Valerian root contains a number of compounds and antioxidants that help promote sleep, ease restlessness, and reduce anxiety. Antioxidants are compounds that inhibit damage to cells by harmful free radicals. Valerian root contains the antioxidants hesperidin and linarin which have sleep-enhancing and calming properties. 

Valerian root has a unique interaction with GABA a chemical messenger that helps regulate nerve impulses in your brain and nervous system. Studies have shown that low levels of GABA are related to chronic stress, anxiety, and low-quality sleep. Valerian root, more specifically, valerenic acid has shown the ability to inhibit the breakdown of GABA in the brain resulting in feelings of calmness and decreased feelings of stress and anxiety. 

Magnesium 

Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body and plays a critical part in both the health of your body and brain. Studies show even if you have a near-perfect diet you still may not be getting enough of it. Just how important is magnesium and what exactly is magnesium used for? Well, like I mentioned earlier every single cell in your body contains it and needs it to function. In fact, magnesium is involved in over 600 reactions in the human body including: 

  • Energy creation
  • Protein formulation
  • Gene maintenance 
  • Nervous system regulation: Magnesium regulates neurotransmitters that send messages throughout your brain and nervous system. 
  • Muscle movement

Magnesium Fights Depression 

Research has shown magnesium plays a critical role in brain function and mood, and low levels of magnesium are directly linked to an increased risk of depression. A study that included over 8,800 people found that individuals under the age of 65 with the lowest magnesium intake had nearly a 23% increased risk of depression. Supplementing with magnesium can effectively help reduce symptoms of depression and as studies show, the results can be substantial. For example, a controlled trial in depressed adults found 450 mg of magnesium each day improved mood and well-being more effectively than an antidepressant. 

Passionflower 

Passionflower is a climbing-like vine, native to the southeastern United States and Central and South America. People have used passionflower for medicinal purposes since the 16th century. There are around 550 different species of flowering plants (passionflower). Studies suggest passionflower supplements may help reduce stress, anxiety, and symptoms of menopause, ease insomnia, and minimize certain forms of pain.

Passionflower Exhibits A Calming Effect

Clinical studies show that passionflower has anxiety-calming effects and can effectively help reduce anxiety levels. For example, in one clinical trial, researchers found passionflower had results similar to that of a prescription-based anti-anxiety medication. In fact, certain studies suggest passionflower may work as effectively as some anxiety prescription medication. Additionally, a 2016 clinical trial found that passionflower decreased anxiety and improved memory in the participants. Two other clinical trials found that passionflower has sedative effects. These effects could be due, in part, to passionflower interacting with GABA levels in the brain. 

Iron

Iron is one of the most crucial minerals to human health. All human cells contain iron, it is mostly found in red blood cells. The health benefits of healthy iron levels include eliminating fatigue and many of its roots. Iron also plays a vital role in immune system function, treating anemia, boosting hemoglobin, and much more.

Iron is used to help treat a variety of conditions including but not limited to:

  • Treats anemia
  • Boost hemoglobin 
  • Reduces fatigue 
  • Boost Immunity 
  • Improves concentration 
  • Restores sleep

Melatonin

Melatonin is a hormone naturally made by your body and is produced in the brain by the pineal gland, and is also found in other areas including the eyes, gut, and bone marrow. Melatonin is oftentimes referred to as the "sleep hormone" because having and maintaining high levels of melatonin can help you fall asleep and stay asleep. 

How Does Melatonin Work? 

Melatonin works together with your body's circadian rhythm—which is your body's internal clock and lets you know when it is time to sleep, wake up, and eat. There is also strong evidence that melatonin helps regulate your body temperature, blood pressure, and even hormone levels. Melatonin also binds to receptors in the brain, reducing nerve activity, helping you relax. Individuals who don't get enough or have high enough levels of melatonin tend to have a difficult time getting to and staying asleep. 

Melatonin Supplements

As Vitagene stated, "melatonin is a super clever and versatile hormone that can help with anxiety and depression, relieve pain from chronic disease, prevent cancer cell growth, and decrease the effects of estrogen on tumor growth. With so many amazing benefits, it’s in your best interest to check your melatonin level—and supplement if necessary." 

Valerian Root and Hops Extract Improve Sleep

A 2010 review of studies from Australia found that pairing hops with valerian root extract may be an effective treatment for insomnia. Of the 16 confirmed reviewed studies, 12 unanimously concluded that the combination of hops and valerian root extract improved sleep quality and reduced the time it took to fall asleep dramatically. In some cases, the reduction in time it took to fall asleep translated to two and a half hours of additional sleep per night and a 50% decrease in nighttime awakenings. 

Passionflower, Hops, and Valerian Root Extract 

Passionflower, hops extract, and valerian root extract in combination with one another has shown to be, in some cases, as effective of a sleep aid as prescription-based sleeping pill Ambien. The 2013 study was first reported in the Indian Journal of Pharmacology and has since been replicated numerous times with similar findings. Once again, the all-natural blend of passionflower, hops extract, and valerian root extract when in combination with one another has shown to be as effective, and in some cases, more effective than Ambien—which is one of the most widely used prescription-based sleep aids on the market.
