Valeriana oflicinalis: Human clinical trials show that the herb, Valeriana oflicinalis, has sedative effects, which are mostly related to its volatile oil.
Biochemical studies show that valerenic acid inhibits GABA (gamma—Aminobutyric acid) catabolism in the synaptic connections in the central nervous system. This leads to a high concentration of GABA in the brain tissue which causes sedative effects.
Hypericum perforatum L: The antidepressant effects of this plant are due to its hyperforin compounds, which inhibits the absorption of norepinephrine, dopamine, glutamate and GABA. Also, Biflavonolids and amentoflavone that are found in this plant, inhibits serotonin receptors, particularly 5-HT (1 D) and 5-HT (2C). In addition, it reduces corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) and the release of interleukin 6.
Passiflora incarnata L: The anxiolytic and sedative effect of this plant are due to the flavonoids that include apigenin and chrysin, which bind to GABA receptors A and inhibit the reuptake of GABA neurotransmitters. Finally, GABA concentration increases leading to soothing and anxiolytic effects.
