The ‘root’ of the word Valerian means ’to be healthy.’ It has been used for 2800 years as a remedy for insomnia and contains several calming properties. It is considered to be a sedative, anticonvulsant, and pain reliever. It seems to bind with a neuronal receptor upon which pharmaceutical drugs like those ending in “-lam” and “-pam” also interact. Unlike those drugs however, the NIH claims that Valerian “might improve sleep quality without producing side effects.” and also “…the literature supports a role for these preparations as useful alternatives in the management of the stress and anxiety of everyday life”
The primary ingredient in the hop flower’s effectiveness is methylbutenol, a natural alcohol with a fruity odor. Extracts from the flower have been used as sedatives, which reduce locomotor activity and body temperature. A common folk remedy for sleeplessness is to fill a pillow with hops. Germany’s drug regulation commission has approved the use of hops for reducing anxiety and restlessness.

Chamomile is often used as a nighttime tea that aids sleep, and also relieves anxiety. It is used to calm stomach problems. It demonstrates anti-inflammatory, anti-hyperglycemic, antigenotoxic, and anti-cancer properties. In addition, it has been used for even wider treatments, including muscle spasms, ulcers, and hemorrhoids.
The passion flower has long been used by native Americans to treat conditions like insomnia and epilepsy. Currently, it is considered as effective as a pharmaceutical anti-anxiety medication with fewer short-term side-effects.
Melatonin is a natural hormone that when naturally produced by the pineal gland, signals to the body to prepare for sleep. It helps regulate the circadian rhythm. Used as a supplement, it helps treat sleep disorders and improves the quality of sleep. It reduces the effects of jet lag, may increase vivid dreaming, and can increase REM sleep time and dream activity.
