The combination of these nervine and sedative herbs help relax the mind and calm the body. Unlike many pharmaceutical sleeping pills, none of the herbs in this formula are habit forming or cause a ‘hung-over’ feeling the next day.

A trophorestorative is literally a food for a specific organ or tissue, one that nourishes the tissue, restoring normal function and vitality to the organ. Fresh Milky oat seed extraction is a superb food for the nervous system. It is a slow acting tonic that calms shattered nerves, relieves emotional instability, reduces symptoms of drug withdrawal and helps restore a sense of piece and tranquility to overstressed, angry and chronically upset people.” It is also useful for situational depression in type ‘A’ folks.
