I stopped taking this right now because I’m on my meds. I stopped meds for a few years. I’m back with my Psychiatrist and after being diagnosed now as Bipolar-1 I’m now on ability, lamictal, and Xanor.
Best to consult your doctor. I just take chamomile tea now at night.
How’s your sleep lately? Mine’s pretty shi$@#. It’s been bad before the quarantine, and it’s even worse now. Today we’ll be reviewing Puritan’s Pride Calm Tabs. Before, good ol’ binaural beats and meditation worked. I mean why wouldn’t it? Calming sounds, natural vibrations, focused breathing.
But after everything that’s currently happening:
- Corona virus
- Lock downs
- Incompetent governance
How can someone get a good night’s sleep if not from tiring one’s self from all the society’s problems. I for one sometimes wish I can be apathetic to everything that’s happening around us. Even just for now, we need to get sleep. It’s vital for our immunity and mental health. Something to temporarily relieve us from stress and anxiety.
Melatonin is the most common as a sleeping aid and unfortunately I needed something more potent.That’s why after doing some research, I got curious about trying supplements with Valerian Root. That’s why I finally gave Puritan’s Pride Calm Tabs a try. Read my full review + ingredients analysis now!

Valerian Root contains a substance known as valerenic acid that is believed to affect gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptors in the brain. It is believed that one of the purposes of GABA is to control fear or anxiety experienced when nerve cells are overexcited. By doing so, valerian may act as a mild sedative and anxiolytic (anxiety-reducing drug). (Source: Valerian)
Native peoples of the Americas used passionflower as a mild sedative. Today, passionflower is used as a dietary supplement for anxiety and sleep problems, as well as for pain, heart rhythm problems, menopausal symptoms, and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. (Source: NCCIH)

If you went here immediately without reading my in-depth ingredients analysis, I suggest you go back and give it a look first.
OMG. Results speak for themselves and first time of taking this I slept like a baby. With NO NIGHTMARES. Some sleeping supplements give me weird dreams but this one gave me good ones.
1 tablet and anxiety is lessened after 20 minutes or so. My mind stops racing and I feel more calm and relaxed. A temporary dose of peace in a life of chaos.
2 tablets and I can’t fight the moonlight. Char. I meant it made me drowsy that I can’t fight the urge to shut my eyes. Wow just wow.
As someone with a bipolar-2 disorder, this natural supplement seems to work like magic, with absolutely NO SIDE EFFECTS. I did another research and found out that some doctors recommend this to patients weaning off of valium (chemical drug for anxiety).
My tics lessened their occurence too. Wow just wow. Just praises! I’m so happy that’s why I’m so enthusiastic to write this review. To share my honest to goodness experience. It’s all-natural too!
I want to hoard this. I regret for only getting 1 bottle. I plan to take this forever. Taking this is making me a better person because I get full rest and a calmer state.
