To sleep; perchance to dream…
Shakespeare certainly knew how humans yearn for the comfort and rejuvenation of a good night's rest; we all intuit the healing power of sleep. For millennia, people have used herbs to help calm frayed nerves and for help relaxing into a deep, restful sleep. Planetary Herbals has a range of herbal products that are potent, efficacious tools that will help you rest easily.
Valerian Easy Sleep™
This formula contains a powerful combination of botanicals that calm, tonify the nervous system, and relax the muscles. Valerian, chamomile, and hops have been used in the west for hundreds of years and are legendary for helping to decrease the time it takes to get to sleep and keep you there. Zizyphus is equally legendary in China, where it is primarily used as a nourishing tonifier for the heart and nervous system, promoting mental calmness and tranquility.
Another renowned western herb, skullcap, is known for quieting the nerves as a gentle nourishing tonifier. These ingredients are combined with American ginseng that reduces stress and supports the adrenal glands. Calcium and magnesium support the nervous system and promote muscular relaxation. This powerful formulation has been based in part on an ancient Chinese herbal formula called Jade Pillow, a formulation handed down through the legendary Shaolin Monastery in Northern China.
The name says it all! Stress Free is ideal for those of us who are stressed out and losing sleep because of our modern lifesyles.
