Bioactive Molecules in each patch
Melatonin has the ability to reduce sleep onset time and increase sleep duration. Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone that plays of a role in initiating and maintaining sleep and control of our 24-hour rhythms.
Melatonin is naturally occurring, produced and secreted by the pineal gland and acts in the hypothalamus. The pineal gland is stimulated to release melatonin by the evening hours and a dark environment.
GABA is a neurotransmitter found in mammals and plants, and acts to calm our central nervous system. Research suggest that GABA maybe effective as a natural treatment for depression, anxiety, insomnia, and addiction.
5-HTP may have a positive effect on sleep, mood, anxiety, appetite, and pain sensation. 5-HTP is the precursor to the relaxing hormone serotonin. When taken with GABA, 5-HTP might help people fall asleep faster, decrease sleep latency, increase duration of sleep, and improve the quality of sleep.
Valerian is a perennial flowering plant native to Europe and Asia Its root may have sedative and anxiolytic effects, and is commonly sold in dietary supplement capsules to promote sleep. Research suggests that valerian makes GABA more effective as a calming agent,
