Thousands of supplements and sleep aids are available on the market. How are you to know which are going to be truly effective? Ingredients are key to knowing which supplements are duds versus the ones that will make the difference. Here we will break down which ingredients to look for to find the best sleep aid for adults. 

Sleep supplements are meant to help you feel drowsiness, making it easier to fall asleep at night. A lot of people suffer from sleep disorders that make it near impossible to get a good night’s sleep. 

“Around 50 to 70 million Americans have sleep disorders, and 1 in 3 adults (about 84 million people) do not regularly get the recommended amount of uninterrupted sleep they need to protect their health.” 

Some of the most common sleep disorders are:

  • Insomnia A sleep disorder where a person struggles to fall asleep and, when awoken, struggles to fall back asleep. 
  • Sleep apnea: A sleep disorder that causes breathing to stop or get shallow; airways are blocked when sleeping.
  • Sleepwalking: A sleep disorder where a person will complete activities during sleep. Typically occurs during sleep. 
  • Restless Leg Syndrome: A sleep disorder where there is an irresistible urge to move the legs. It happens during sleep and is incredibly disruptive. 
  • Narcolepsy: A chronic neurological disorder that affects the sleep-wake cycles in the brain. This causes frequent sleepiness during the day.
  • Nightmares: Frightening dreams that occur during the REM cycle.

The best sleep aid ingredients for adults

As we age, sleep can become more difficult to attain. Because of this sleep supplements and sleep aids were created. Here at Relaxium, we wanted to develop a sleep supplement that was both safe and effective for those who struggle to sleep. 

The most commonly used sleep ingredients fall in line with the ingredients we use in our product. These ingredients are:

  • Chamomile
  • Passionflower
  • Ashwagandha
  • Melatonin
  • Valerest 
  • L-Tryptophan
  • Magnesium
  • Gamma Amino Butyric Acid (GABA)

All listed ingredients are proven to aid in the quality of sleep. That is why all ingredients are used in one of Relaxium’s most popular products, Relaxium Sleep. If you’re searching for the best sleep aid for adults, Relaxium has you covered!


Chamomile is a plant that is known to promote drowsiness and sleepiness. The history of chamomile use can be dated back to ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome. Commonly used to cure fever, chamomile was mainly utilized for medicinal purposes.

There are two different types of chamomile:

  • German chamomile 
  • Roman chamomile

In today’s use, chamomile is popularly used to increase feelings of tiredness. The extract offers a calming effect. Relaxium sleep utilizes 75mg of chamomile extract. 


Passionflower, commonly used in tea, is widely used for those with anxiety and those who suffer from insomnia. The way Passionflower works is by helping to increase levels of GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid) which helps to “lower the activity of some brain cells, making you feel more relaxed.” 

Relaxium sleep utilizes 75mg of passionflower extract. 



Another very popular ingredient used in sleep aids. Ashwagandha has been around for centuries. Ashwagandha has the properties to aid by calming the brain, relaxing it enough to sleep. Not only is it good for sleep, but it also offers many other benefits such as:

  • Lowering blood sugar levels 
  • Acts as an anti-inflammatory
  • Helps with stress and anxiety 
  • Good for heart health

Relaxium Sleep utilizes 125mg of Ashwagandha. 


One of the most common ingredients used for sleep, melatonin is a very useful ingredient. Melatonin is a natural hormone that the body produces to aid in sleep. The usage of melatonin has become very popular since it helps to increase feelings of drowsiness. 

Melatonin is often used for:

  • Insomnia 
  • Restless Leg Syndrome
  • Jet lag
  • Anxiety 

And in general, those who struggle to sleep. Relaxium sleep utilizes 5 mg of Melatonin.



Extracted from the flower, Valerian, Valerest is a popular ingredient for sleep due to its safe and natural properties to influence sleep. It is a blend of Valerian and hops. 

Valerest® is an exclusive blend of Valerian Root and Hops with a clinical study conducted by Relaxium. Additionally, extensive research done in a Universal Clinical Study led to investment in the ingredient based on its effectiveness. The conclusion of the study in comparison to the use of sole melatonin resulted in Valerest® significantly improving the quality of life through better sleep. 


L-Tryptophan has been used in sleep supplements and aids based on its ability to help speed up the process of sleep. This is especially so for those who struggle with sleep disorders like insomnia. 

Relaxium utilizes 500 mg of L-Tryptophan.


Relaxation and calmness are crucial to fall asleep at night. For many with anxiety or sleep disorders, this can be a heavy task given the symptoms they must deal with. On average it takes a person 15-20 minutes to fall asleep. Magnesium helps to relax the body, thus making the process of falling asleep much faster.

Magnesium has the chemical properties to activate the parasympathetic nervous system. This is where the feeling of calmness and relaxation resides. 

Relaxium Sleep utilizes a total of 100mg of Magnesium citrate, glycinate, and oxide. 

Gamma Amino Butyric Acid (GABA)

GABA is useful for helping the process of falling asleep. 

Gamma Amino Butyric Acid is a neurotransmitter that relieves anxiety and helps you get good sleep, relax, and wind down. A placebo-controlled clinical trial confirmed that GABA has the effect of improving the quality of sleep, easing stress, and increasing the duration of uninterrupted sleep. An added benefit, GABA appears to help keep cortisol at a lower level. 

This is a very helpful ingredient for those who struggle with weight. 

Relaxium Sleep utilizes 100 mg of Gamma Amino Butyric Acid.
