The powerful formulation of Dr Backhaus natural sleeping pills


A lot of people think that Melatonin is a natural sleeping supplement – this is not the case. Melatonin on its own will not induce sleep to any great extent. It is better to think of Melatonin as a “darkness detective”. In other words it tells your brain that you need to get ready for the night time or the darkness period of the day.

What this means is that if you take Melatonin at night or whenever its dark, Melatonin will crank up the sleep process.

It can even tell your body clock to move your normal sleeping time to an earlier time.

Melatonin was the base ingredient we added to start the Dr Backhaus natural sleeping pills formulation.

Valerian root is next.

Ingredient per capsule – Melatonin 4mg

Valerian root

Most people have heard of Valerian root, it is probably the common ingredient used in dietary supplements for insomnia and anxiety. Valerian goes back many centuries – the Greeks and Romans (and they knew a thing or two) used it for insomnia.

So how does Valerian work? Scientists think it softly increases the levels of the chemical known as GABA in the brain. This chemical provides a calming effect on the brain and body.

So far you have read about the 2 powerhouse ingredients Melatonin and Valerian root. Next is GABA.

Ingredient per capsule – Valerian extract (root) 75mg


Being an amino acid Gaba is the chemical messenger in your brain. The body uses Gaba to reduce the nerve action inside your brain, which then leads to a feeling of calm, restfulness and relaxation.

There are many prescription sleeping pills that work by expanding the numbers of GABA in your brain. Some natural sedative herbs, such as Valerian, also work by increasing GABA.

This is sounding very logical now. The next is L-theanine.

Ingredient per capsule – GABA 50mg


L-theanine is a derivative from the tea leaf and is a calming and non-dietary amino acid found only in teas from the Camellia Sinensis.  This amino acid helps to relieve stress by inducing a relaxing effect on the body without drowsiness.

Research has shown L-theanine to be a very effective natural sleeping supplement.

Now you are understanding how these powerful sleep inducing ingredients, combined, have a logical natural sleeping pills formulation?

The next ingredient in these natural sleeping pills is Chamomile.

Ingredient per capsule – L-Theanine 100mg


The majority of people have drunk a cup of chamomile tea, over 1 million cups are drunk every day!

Chamomile extract – is widely recognized, especially in the USA, as a sleep-inducer and gentle tranquilizer.

Moreover let’s take a look at what we added next – Lemon balm

Ingredient per capsule – Chamomile extract (whole plant)  75mg

Lemon balm

Since the Middle Ages – lemon balm has been used as a memory boosting, anti-insomnia and anti-anxiety nootropic.

Lemon balm is a relaxing herb that helps to reduce anxiety and stress. Lemon balm also promotes a good night’s sleep, improve the appetite, and even ease pains.

After the lemon balm we added Passion flower.

Ingredient per capsule – Lemon balm extract (whole plant) 50mg

Passion flower

For many centuries, experts have used passion flower for its sleep-inducing properties. They have often formulated Passion flower with other sleep-hypnotic herbs such as Valerian and Hops. Moreover doctors have traditionally used it for treating anxiety and insomnia. Recent studies have shown that passion flower has improved the quality of sleep and the length of time slept.

Let’s take a look at the next ingredient Hops.

Ingredient per capsule – Passion flower extract (whole plant) 50mg

Hops extract

The German Commission E authorizes the using of hops for “sleep disturbances and discomfort due to anxiety or restlessness”. The German Commission is the equivalent of the FDA.

Hops extract is a mild sedative and only really work well when formulated with other herbs such a Valerian.

We are nearly there. The last product to enter the mix is 5-HTP

Ingredient per capsule – Hops extract (flower) 50mg


5-HTP increases the production of Serotonin on the central nervous system. Additionally the herbal industry has used it for several diseases where experts believe that Serotonin plays a significant role in helping with insomnia, depression, obesity, etc.

Ingredient per capsule – 5-HTP (Griffonsia Simplicifolio) 10mg
