Sleeplessness or insomnia can often be caused by stress, anxiety and feelings of depression. Conversely, lack of sleep can compound the symptoms of mental illness. Our consumption of stimulants (such as caffeine) to cope with feelings of stress and exhaustion can also make falling asleep difficult and heighten our sense of anxiety. Our Sleep + Anxiety formulation is designed to help you fall asleep quicker, remain in a deep sleep for longer and limit feelings of anxiousness during the day.
Valerian root is a wild plant that is believed to raise one’s level of gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) which has a relaxing effect on the mind and body. Valerian root has been used for centuries in herbal medicine to treat insomnia, nervousness and anxiety.
Passionflower is used to treat a multitude of issues including insomnia, agitation and restlessness. Much like Valerian root, it is believed to increase the levels of GABA in the brain, which acts as a mood regulator and relaxes the body. Passionflower is also used for pain management due to its natural anti-inflammatory properties.
Theanine is most commonly found in tea leaves and is known to lessen feelings of stress and anxiety. It helps the body to relax by gently reducing one’s resting heart rate. Also used as a sleep aid, Theanine enables a quicker falling asleep process, improved sleep quality and more consistent mood levels.
