Valerian has long been used in herbal medicine as a treatment for restlessness and sleeping disorders. While the exact mechanism remains unknown, it is thought that monoterpines and sesquiterpenes are the active medicinal components of valerian root. Indeed, recent clinical evidence has demonstrated that 100 mg of Valerian root significantly reduces anxiety (racing mind) and promotes calm and relaxation to help you fall asleep faster.
Skullcap is traditionally used in herbal medicine to reduce nervous tension and insomnia. It contains many constituents including flavones, glycosides, and cinnamic acids and it is thought that these components, as a group, contribute to the pharmacological activity of the plant. Veeva Sleep Formula provides 600 mg of Skullcap, as specified by numerous herbal medicine and regulatory authorities.
Lemon balm has long been used in herbal medicine as a sleep promoting herb. It is thought that lemon balm's constituents may inhibit the catabolism of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) within the body. This is important as the principal role of GABA is to reduce nervous system excitability and inhibition of GABA breakdown would lead to relaxing effects.
California poppy is traditionally used in herbal medicine as a sleep inducing herb. It contains many alkaloid constituents and it is thought that these components, as a group, contribute to the pharmacological activity of the plant. Veeva Sleep Formula has been formulated to contain a California poppy extract which provides a daily dose equivalent to 200 mg herb tops as specified by numerous herbal medicine references.
Magnesium is a cofactor in more than 300 bodily enzyme reactions that regulate biochemical reactions such as protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control, and blood pressure. Magnesium is also involved in the movement of calcium and potassium ions across cell membranes, the process by which nerve signals move and muscles (including the heart) contract and relax. Countless scientific references recognize Magnesium's efficacy with as little as 20 mg, however, Veeva Sleep Formula contains 75 mg of elemental Magnesium as a powerful sleep aid.
