- Jess Blair, abeeco Naturopath
5-HTP is short for 5-Hydroxytryptophan, a natural chemical that is found in the body. It is believed to increase the amount of the 'feel good' chemical seratonin in the brain and body. Seratonin can be converted into the hormone melatonin, and it is melatonin that regulates sleep patterns - levels rise in the evening to help you go to sleep and fall in the morning to help you wake up. Research suggests 5-HTP can enhance sleep quality and length of sleep and decrease the time it takes to fall asleep. It may also be of help for sleep terrors and sleepwalking.
Passionflower comes from the family of plants called Passiflora. It is believed to have anxiety-calming effects and can increase deep sleep relaxation. It appears to boost the level of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain, helping to lower brain activity which may help you relax and sleep better.
Valerian is a herb with the root being used for medicinal purposes. It seems to act like a sedative on the brain and nervous system, reducing anxiety and producing feelings of calmness and tranquility. It also has sleep enhancing properties, improving the ability to fall asleep, stay asleep and achieve higher-quality sleep.
