5-HTP is a close relative of the amino acid Tryptophan, which is found naturally in foods such as Turkey and Pumpkin seeds. It is a known anti-depressant and increases serotonin, a neurotransmitter, which positively affects mood. Consuming 5-HTP means your body can produce more serotonin and melatonin; helping you sleep deeper, helping your brain work faster, and positively re-balancing your mood.
5-HTP has been clinically studied and shown to be of benefit in the following conditions: primary fibromyalgia syndrome, Friedreich's ataxia, depression, anxiety, binge eating associated with obesity, and insomnia.
St John's Wort
St John's Wort is widely known as an herbal treatment for depression. In some countries, such as Germany, it is commonly prescribed for mild depression, especially in children and teenagers.
The active component is called Hypericin, which has been extensively clinically studied. A recent report from the Cochrane Review states that St John's Wort is superior to placebo in patients with major depression, that St John's Wort is similarly effective as standard antidepressants and St John's Wort has far fewer side-effects than standard antidepressants.
Women who take the contraceptive pill should not use supplements containing St John's Wort.

Valerian Root acts as an "adaptogen" or balancing agent, meaning that it's effects depend on the symptoms a person is displaying. A study found valerian Root tends to sedate the agitated person and stimulate the fatigued person, bringing about a balancing effect on the system.
Valerian Root has been used in ayurvedic medicine for many centuries and is considered to work on the nervous, digestive, and respiratory systems as a stimulant, antispasmodic, stomachic, sedative, analeptic, carminative, and nervine. Valerian Root is an excellent pre-bedtime relaxant and can help people with sleeping disorders or who are stressed or nervous.
