4. What does SerenitePlus contain?

SerenitePlus contains the following ingredients:

  • Passion flower (Passiflora incarnata) is a gentle,effective, soothing herb often recommended by herbalists for people who tend to worry occasionally and to help support mental peace and harmony.
  • Valerian root has a long and illustrious history and appears in recorded writings from ancient Greece and Rome. It’s well-known for its soothing and calming properties and for its ability to encourage peaceful slumber. Research suggests that natural chemicals found in valerian act on GABA receptors in the brain. Due to its long history of use, valerian has been well-studied. There are also many scientific studies which support its benefits. Marder M, Viola H, Wasowski C, Fernández S, Medina JH, Paladini AC (2003). "6-methylapigenin and hesperidin: new valeriana flavonoids with activity on the CNS". Pharmacol Biochem Behav 75 (3): 537-45. ; Fernández S, Wasowski C, Paladini AC, Marder M (2004).

"In vitro study in the interaction of extracts and pure compounds from Valerian officinalis roots with GABA, benzodiazepine and barbiturate receptors". Fitoterapia 64: 291-300.
  • Melatonin is a naturally occurring substance in the body and is produced mainly by the pineal gland, which uses serotonin as a precursor. This is why adequate levels of serotonin are important for healthy sleep. At night, the pineal gland ‘switches on’ in response to the absence of light, which is why it’s important to ensure that your bedroom is dark at night. Studies have suggested that melatonin levels influence healthy sleep patterns and the quality of sleep. These levels may also assist in supporting sleep in the elderly due to the natural reduction of melatonin production from the normal aging process Mundey, K; Benloucif, S; Harsanyi, K; Dubocovich, ML; Zee, PC (2005).

  • 5-HTP, also known as oxytriptan, is a nutrient found in certain foods. 5-HTP is a precursor to serotonin, a neurotransmitter that’s important in a healthy sleep cycle, as well as for a balanced mood and feelings of well-being.
