  • Sleep


Restus contains a dream team of clinically proven ingredients, including valerian, passion flower, lemon balm, GABA, L-theanine, 5-HTP, and melatonin. Their purpose? To help you fall asleep, stay asleep, and wake up feeling refreshed. Incoming: your most rested, restorative sleep (ever).

Every ingredient in the Restus formula was chosen to significantly improve the quality and duration of your sleep. Here’s how:

  • Valerian root. There’s a reason people call it “nature’s valium.” This calming, stimulant-free herb has been used since the middle ages to treat nervous disorders, like anxiety and insomnia, and menopausal hot flashes. Today, valerian root is a superstar ingredient for improving sleep and preventing sleep disorders. One study proved that 400mg of valerian root helped people not only fall asleep faster, but have a better quality of sleep through the night. It can also reduce muscle pain and spasms and improve mild insomnia, with little to no side effects. Fair warning: thanks to its high levels of valeric acid, valerian root has a very potent smell. But don’t worry—it’s 100% safe to ingest.
  • Passion flower. This plant has been used since the 16th century to soothe all sorts of ailments. Scientists believe it naturally increases GABA—a calming neurotransmitter in the brain. Numerous human and animal studies have proven that passion flower can significantly reduce anxiety. Other studies show that it can also help you fall asleep faster, improve sleep patterns, and increase deep sleep.
  • Lemon balm is a relaxing herb that improves cognition, mood, sleep, stress, and anxiety. It’s often paired with valerian root to boost its sleep-inducing powers.
  • GABA. This popular neurotransmitter is vital for regulating sleep and relaxing the body. Research shows that PharmaGABA is one of the most effective types on the market—so that’s exactly why we used it in our supplement. PharmaGABA helps suppress cortisol spikes to reduce stress levels. It can also improve countless elements of your sleep, from deep sleep to how quickly you doze off and how rested you feel when you wake up. Another plus: just 100mg of PharmaGABA is proven to help with cognition and long term memory.
  • L-theanine is an amino that helps to promote relaxation and a reduction in stress. Here is more research on how it helps to combat psychological and physiological stress.
  • 5-HTP is made in our body from tryptophan, an amino acid found in food. 5-HTP helps increase serotonin levels in the brain and improve mood and appetite regulation.
  • Melatonin is an important part of the sleep-wake cycle (also known as your “Circadian Rhythm”). As you age, different factors can interfere with your melatonin levels and Circadian Rhythm, from a decrease in estrogen and progesterone to low levels of serotonin and a lack of sunlight. With 3mg of high-quality melatonin in every dose, Restus helps to restore your natural sleep cycle and keep it in balance—even when your other menopause symptoms try to mess with it.
  • Vitamin B6 can help to enhance dreams and dream recall. Time to dig out that old dream journal.
  • Multiple studies have also looked at the benefits of combining many of these ingredients. This study showed how 5-HTP and GABA together increased sleep duration, while this study proved that a combination of vitamin B6, melatonin, and tryptophan can induce sleep. And this study shows the benefits of using these GABA and L-theanine together for improved sleep quality and sleep duration.

Valerian Root 400mg, Passion Flower 200mg, Lemon Balm 200mg, Chamomile Extract 200mg, L-theanine 100mg, Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA) 100mg, 5HTP 100mg, Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate) 10mg, Melatonin 3mg

Other ingredients: cellulose capsule, vegetable stearate, silicon dioxide

Adults take 2 capsules 30 to 60 minutes before bedtime.

When I opened the bottle it had a potent smell. Is this normal?

Yes! Valerian root (one of the incredible sleep-inducing herbs in our formula) has a strong medicinal smell, which means it’s fresh and effective. The product is perfectly safe to ingest and it is not rancid.

Will Restus leave me feeling groggy the next morning?

We crafted this formula with ingredients that help you sleep deeper, so you can wake up feeling refreshed. However if you do find yourself feeling groggy in the morning, try taking one capsule instead of two. This will cut the dosage of the ingredients in half.

Can I take Restus with other Morphus products?

Yes—Restus is safe to take alongside other Morphus supplements. If you specifically want to boost your sleep quality, we recommend taking it with 1 to 2 capsules of Magnesium. You should take both supplements 30 to 60 minutes before bed.

Restus contains melatonin. Is it safe for women in perimenopause and menopause to take melatonin?

Yes! In fact, it is recommended for women in this phase of life. This research shows an association between low levels of melatonin and sleep issues in perimenopausal women. For more information and research about the effects of melatonin on sleep for menopausal women, here are some helpful resources:

Melatonin makes me groggy. Will that happen with your melatonin too?

Not all supplements are created equal. That’s why it’s so important to ensure you’re getting supplements with quality, science-backed ingredients. The right amount of melatonin should not make you feel groggy long-term. However, everyone responds differently to supplements depending on the brand or dose.

The bottom line? Listen to your body. If you’re feeling groggy, start with one capsule (half the recommended dose) and work your way up if needed.

Can I take Restus every night?

Consistency is key if your goal is to experience the benefits of these sleep-enhancing ingredients on a regular basis. However, you can also just take Restus as needed. If you find it stops working as well as it did, take a break for a few weeks and then start again or rotate it with other sleep products like Magnesium.

Can I take Restus instead of my sleeping pill?

Always speak to your doctor when it comes to taking and/or discontinuing any medication.

Who should not take Restus?

Do not take Restus if you are on medications that increase serotonin levels (ie. antidepressants and MAO inhibitors) due to interactions. Speak to your doctor if you are on medication for Parkinson’s disease. Do not take Restus if you have Down syndrome.
