How the ingredients of Thrive Therapeutics kid’s calming gummies promote better quality sleep

Posted on October 29th, 2022

Sleep is essential for children’s healthy growth and development. And Thrive Therapeutics kid’s calming gummies promote relaxation and better quality sleep in kids. 

Children who don’t get enough rest are prone to having mood and behavioral issues as well as health concerns, such as high blood pressure. They may also wet the bed or develop speech impairments. So I designed these calming gummies specifically to help kids get the sleep they need. That way, they can grow and develop to reach their full potential. 

The gummies have a natural raspberry flavor and contain the following ingredients: 

  • Ashwagandha root
  • GABA (gamma-aminobutryric acid) 
  • L-theanine
  • Lemon balm 
  • Chamomile flower

These ingredients are all-natural and offer many benefits for children’s sleep quality and overall well-being. 

Ashwagandha Root

Ashwagandha root, also known as Indian ginseng” is a popular Ayurvedic herb that’s been used for centuries for its wide range of health benefits. These benefits include reducing stress and anxiety, improving sleep quality, boosting energy levels, and enhancing brain function. The herb also treats health conditions, such as arthritis, asthma, high blood pressure, and chronic fatigue syndrome.

One of the most important benefits of ashwagandha root is its stress-relieving properties. Ashwagandha root can significantly reduce the level of cortisol in your body. Cortisol is a hormone released in response to stress that can negatively impact your health by causing weight gain, high blood pressure, and anxiety.

Ashwagandha root is also known for its anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties. The herb can reduce inflammation and help the body fight off infections. Plus, it can treat various autoimmune diseases, such as psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, and Crohn’s disease. Ashwagandha root is safe for most people to take and has few side effects.

GABA (gamma-aminobutryric acid)

GABA is a neurotransmitter made in the brain and found in some foods that help regulate communication between the brain’s nerve cells. GABA also helps regulate muscle tone, and GABA supplements can be used as a natural treatment for anxiety or sleep disorders.

GABA alleviates anxiety by reducing nerve cell activity. And it improves sleep quality by promoting relaxation. GABA supplements are generally considered safe when taken as directed. However, they may cause drowsiness, headaches, or upset stomach. 


L-theanine is an amino acid commonly found in green tea. It’s known for its ability to promote relaxation without causing drowsiness. Some studies suggest that L-theanine may help reduce stress and anxiety as well as improve sleep quality. L-theanine can also boost cognitive performance and increase levels of serotonin and dopamine in the brain.

While L-theanine is generally considered safe, there are some potential side effects to be aware of. These include stomach upset, headache, and dizziness. It’s also important to note that L-theanine may interact with certain medications, including drugs used to treat high blood pressure and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. 

Lemon balm

Lemon balm is a perennial herb in the mint family. It’s native to Europe, Central Asia, and Iran. Lemon balm has a long history of use in herbalism and folk medicine.

Lemon balm is used for digestive problems, including gas, bloating, colic, and nausea. It’s also used to help mental disorders, such as anxiety and depression, and is sometimes combined with other herbs, like chamomile, to treat insomnia. Additionally, lemon balm is used to treat cold sores, herpes simplex viruses, and thyroid conditions. Some people apply lemon balm directly to the skin to treat cold sores, insect bites, wounds, and bruises.

Lemon balm is generally considered safe when taken by mouth in small amounts. However, it may cause some side effects. These include nausea, vomiting, bloating, and diarrhea. Lemon balm may also interact with certain medications, including CNS depressants. People with thyroid conditions or high blood pressure should use lemon balm cautiously. And pregnant and breastfeeding women should avoid it altogether. 

Chamomile flower

Chamomile is a plant that’s been used for centuries as a natural remedy for a variety of ailments. The dried flowers can be brewed into tea. And the fresh flowers can be used to make a compress. 

Chamomile tea is good for treating stomach upset, anxiety, and insomnia. Chamomile compresses are often used to treat inflammation and skin conditions such as eczema. Chamomile essential oil is also popular in aromatherapy and has calming and stress-relieving effects. Some studies have shown that chamomile may have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties. 

Chamomile is generally considered safe. But it may cause allergic reactions in some people. People who are allergic to ragweed, chrysanthemums, marigolds, or daisies may also be allergic to chamomile. If you have never had chamomile before, start with a small amount and see how you react.
