What's Inside: Valerian Root & Passion Flower
Nature’s Lab Relax and Sleep contains a gentle combination of organic valerian root powder and organic passion flower extract to help support relaxation and restful sleep gently and naturally.* Both classified as nervine herbs, or herbs that have various effects on the nervous system, valerian and passionflower both work by causing a relaxing effect on the body.* Nervine herbs can be further classified as gentle, moderate or strong, with both valerian and passionflower falling into the moderate category.* This makes for a sleep support supplement that is still gentle yet effective at supporting relaxation and restful sleep naturally.*
Passion flower is an herbal supplement also used to support healthy anxiety response and restful sleep in traditional herbal preparations.* Passion flower also supports healthy GABA levels- or naturally occurring amino acids- in the brain to support mental calm.* Passiflora is a genus of fast-growing flowering vines. Nature’s Lab Relax & Sleep is formulated with the entire plant sourced from organic varieties of Passiflora incarnata (purple passion flower) and Passiflora caerulea (blue passion flower).

What's Inside: L-Theanine, 5-HTP and Melatonin
Nature's Lab Sleep Support is a blend of amino acids and melatonin formulated to promote relaxation and restful sleep.* This formula features the amino acids L-Theanine and 5-HTP to support relaxation, while melatonin works to promote a healthy, restful sleep cycle all in one convenient, one-per-night formula.* Because this blend contains amino acids as well as the natural hormone melatonin (which is synthesized by the body at night to signal sleep), this supplement is suitable for those who need moderate sleep support.*
L-theanine is an amino acid that helps support relaxation and feelings of calm.* Originally discovered in tea leaves in 1949, L-theanine is often included in supplements to allow for higher dosages than typical amounts found in black tea. Nature’s Lab Sleep Support contains 200 mg of L-Theanine- about 10x the amount of l-theanine found naturally in a cup of tea. L-theanine can help lower anxiety to relax the mind without causing drowsiness by blocking excitatory stimuli in the brain.* L-Theanine also supports the production of relaxing neurotransmitters to support restful sleep.*
5-Hydroxytrptophan (5-HTP) is naturally produced in the body from the amino L-tryptophan.* 5-HTP is important to the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that sends signals between nerve cells to support healthy sleep, nerve and cognitive function.* Low serotonin levels may be linked to anxiety and poor sleep, while healthy serotonin levels can also be converted to melatonin to further promote healthy sleep patterns.* Only L-tryptophan, not 5-HTP, is found in food, so supplementation is a convenient way to add 5-HTP to the diet.* 5-HTP is often recommended over L-tryptophan as it may be more bioavailable and cross the blood-brain barrier more efficiently.* Nature’s Lab Sleep Support contains 30 mg of 5-HTP.
Melatonin is a natural hormone produced by the body. It is often called the "sleep hormone" as adequate levels help support the body's natural circadian rhythm, or internal clock. Melatonin levels begin to rise when it's dark outside to signal the body that it's time to sleep. However, various factors can affect melatonin production, such as stress, blue light exposure, and lack of natural daylight.* Nature's Lab Sleep Support includes 3 mg of melatonin to support healthy melatonin levels and restful sleep.*

What's Inside: 5 Nervine Herbs, 2 Amino Acids, and 6 mg of Melatonin
Our most powerful sleep supplement, Gentle Sleep Aid contains a combination of five calming herbs, two amino acids, and 6 mg of melatonin to support restful sleep.* The herbs in this formula are all classified as nervine herbs and have been used in traditional herbal preparations to support relaxation and restful sleep without drowsiness.* The amino acids GABA and L-Theanine are selected for their ability to support mental calm, while 6mg of melatonin supports healthy circadian rhythm and a restful sleep cycle.*
Like our Level 1 product Relax & Sleep, Gentle Sleep Aid contains the nervine herbs valerian and passion flower. In addition, this formula also contains chamomile, lemon balm and hops extracts, which also act as calming nervines.* Each herb has been selected in this formula to promote relaxation and feelings of calm as well as promote healthy mood and stress response.*
L-Theanine, also featured in Sleep Support (Level 2), is included in a 200 mg dosage in this formula, along with another powerful amino acid, GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid). This naturally-occurring amino acid is produced in the brain and acts as a neurotransmitter to promote relaxation.* GABA may also promote a healthy stress and anxiety response to promote feelings of calm.*
Lastly, Gentle Sleep Aid contains 6 mg of melatonin. In adults, the standard dose used in studies ranges between 1 and 10 mg, although there isn’t a definitive “best” dosage. This formula contains 6 mg of melatonin (compared to 3 mg in our Level 2 product) for those who need a little extra sleep support.*
