TIP: Herbal Calcium can be taken along with Stress & Sleep Formula to provide even more relief.
Skullcap herb (Scutellaria lateriflora) : This herb is best known for its ability to calm the nerves. It is also a good source of calcium, magnesium, and silicon.
Catnip leaf & flower (Nepeta cataria) : Catnip's biggest health benefit is the calming effect that it can have on the body. It contains nepetalactone, which is similar to the valepotriates found in a commonly used herbal sedative, valerian. This can improve relaxation, which may support mood and help to manage anxiety, restlessness, and nervousness.
Eleuthero root (Eleutherococcus senticosus) : Eleuthero is also commonly called Siberian ginseng. As an adaptogen, it helps to support the body's fight against the effects of stress.
Hops flower (Humulus lupulus) : Hops are the flower of the hop plant used to make beer. In addition to brewing, the compounds in hops may provide health benefits, including inflammation support and central nervous system support for a healthy mood and sleep cycles.
Passionflower leaf (Passiflora incarnata) : Passionflower appears to boost the level of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in your brain. This compound helps to lower brain activity helping you to relax and potentially sleep better. It may also help to support the central nervous system and bring on a sense of calm.
