Sleep Balance Herbal is formulated with well-researched therapeutic ingredients that provide calming support for the central nervous system and promote healthy restorative sleep, while limiting sleep disruption. Specific nutrients support balanced mood, contribute to feelings of calmness and relaxation, aid in sleep/wake cycle regulation and help alleviate stress and anxiousness, thereby increasing the ability to sleep.
Sleep Balance Herbal is designed to address the occasional restless sleep that affects millions of Americans. An extremely common concern, sleep deficiency has serious short-term effects on health, negatively impacting memory and cognition, increasing anxiousness and stress and decreasing sound judgment, performance and alertness. A recurring pattern of sleep disturbance presents a strong risk factor for mood and anxiety disorders, negatively affects immune function, and increases the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, obesity and diabetes.

5-Hydroxtryptophan (5-HTP): Naturally synthesized by the body, 5-HTP is a byproduct of the amino acid L-tryptophan. 5-HTP directly supports the production of serotonin, a calming neurotransmitter that plays a key role in the sleep/wake cycle and contributes to a healthy positive outlook. In scientific studies, 5-HTP has been shown to promote relaxation and alleviate stress and anxiety, further aiding restful sleep.
Melatonin: A naturally produced pineal gland hormone, melatonin promotes sleep onset and helps stabilize and reinforce the body’s circadian rhythms, thereby increasing sleep capacity. Melatonin is both lipid and water soluble allowing it to diffuse easily through most cell membranes, including the blood brain barrier. Useful for interrupted sleep, delayed sleep, jet lag and various sleep disorders, melatonin can safely support a restful night’s sleep.
GABA: Research supports orally administered GABA to induce relaxation, while also reducing anxiousness. As the body’s major inhibitory neurotransmitter, GABA and its receptors play an important role in modulating the central nervous system in response to stress.
L-Tryptophan: This amino acid interacts with brain chemicals important to sleep and the sleep/wake cycle. L-tryptophan increases the neurotransmitters serotonin and melatonin, which aid in regulating sleep and mood balance. L-tryptophan has a natural sedative effect that can safely act to counter sleep disturbances and may help reduce problems associated with sleep apnea.
Vitamin B6: Insufficient vitamin B6 has been linked to symptoms of depressed feelings and poor sleep. B6 aids in the production of serotonin and melatonin, neurotransmitters that help regulate sleep patterns and are important to healthy mood, as well as sound restful sleep. As well, B6 helps reduce high homocysteine levels linked to increased risk of depressed feelings.
Magnesium Glycinate: Magnesium deficiency often results in poor quality sleep, fatigue and general malaise. Healthy magnesium levels protect metabolic health, keep stress in check, promote better sleep and aid bone and heart health. Gentle on the stomach and easily absorbable, magnesium glycinate helps to balance the body’s stress-response system, by modulating hormones that either elevate or alleviate stress. Magnesium plays a role in supporting deep, restful sleep by maintaining healthy levels of GABA, a neurotransmitter that promotes restorative sleep. Certain medications can lead to depleted magnesium levels in the body.
Chamomile: Chamomile as Matricaria recutita is one of the most studied and documented medicinal herbs. Used traditionally since ancient times to promote calmness and relaxation, chamomile’s mild sedative effects may be due to its high level of the flavonoid, apigenin. An abundance of evidence highlights the therapeutic actions of apigenin, specifically its enhancement of a general sense of calmness and wellbeing.
Lavender: Research shows that lavender helps to ease anxiety and promotes sleep quality and depth, as well as muscle relaxation. Lavender has been used traditionally for centuries to reduce feelings of stress and as an effective alternative remedy for those with sleep difficulties.
