Sleep Relax Formula by Natural Factors
Natural Factors - Sleep Relax Formula - 90 Capsules
Natural Factors Sleep Relax Formula combines the best of the time-tested sleep-inducing herbs to promote a restful sleep without next-day grogginess. Some of the herbs act as gentle nervous restoratives, calming anxiousness and quieting jangly nerves.
Sleep Relax includes a standardized extract of Valerian root, with calming passion flower, hops and skullcap.
Valerian: renowned for its calming effect on adults and children alike. The principal active constituent in valerian is the volatile oil, so a standardized extract ensures effectiveness as a sedative herb.
Passionflower: have been shown to make a non-addictive sedative that relaxes the nervous system. Passion flower seems especially helpful when physical or mental strain results in insomnia or stress.1 It seems to have a refreshing effect on the nervous system, and it is mild enough to be used for children. Michael Weiner, herbalist and author, suggests that: Passiflora incarnata may be our best tranquilizer yet. The dried leaves and stems both induce a natural sleep and calm hyperactive people...Physicians could well recommend this plant to patients who want to wean themselves from synthetic sleeping pills and tranquilizers.
Hops: are helpful for nervous disorders, anxious overwrought states, and insomnia. Hops are used for their sedative properties in many European countries. The German Commission E Monograph suggests hops for disturbed states such as restlessness and anxiety, disorders of sleep with no side-effects, and contraindications.
Skullcap: a nervine tonic, and a slow but steady nervous system restorative. It relaxes states of nervous tension while at the same time it renews and revives the central nervous system. It may be used in all exhausted or depressed conditions, and it can be used with complete safety in the easing of premenstrual tension.

A quality herbal product starts with the highest quality fresh organic plant material. The efficacy of herbal products has always been affected by growing conditions, harvesting, processing and storage. At Factor Farms in beautiful Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada our quality can be guaranteed as we control the entire process from seedling to finished product.
To grow herbs organically no chemical fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides or pesticides are allowed. We use only natural substances that have been approved by the organic industry. You can be assured that the fresh herb extracts contain no traces of unwanted chemical. Even the seed and plant sources are organic.
To be organically certified, certification inspectors work closely with growers to ensure that the organic standards are adhered to. We must keep detailed records of what we use on our farm. Even after harvest, processing is regulated so that no harmful chemicals are used to manufacture the fresh herb extracts.
Local cultivation of medicinal herbs at Factors Farms ensures that the herbs are picked, processed, and extracted at just the right time when the active ingredients are at their peak.
Natural Factor knows that the natural habitats of many herbs are shrinking and that over-harvesting from the wild can endanger native medicinal plant populations. So organic cultivation of herbs is preferred over "wild crafting".
