What Are Formula 303 Ingredients?
The all-natural ingredients in Formula 303 include:
Valerian Root, a perennial plant that sees its origins in Europe and Asia and has since acclimated to North America. The therapeutic uses of Valerian date back to the time of Hippocrates, who prescribed it as a medicinal herb.
Valerian was first used to naturally treat insomnia, but by the 16th century, it was popularized as a remedy for headaches, nervousness, shakiness and heart palpitations and it became so effective that it was known as “All-Heal“. During the Second World War, it was used for treating stress naturally. Valerian has an interesting history in healing.
In addition to treating stress, headaches, and nervousness, Valerian is used today as a natural remedy for insomnia, anxiety, muscle cramps and spasms, PMS, menstrual cramps, gastrointestinal disorders, and epilepsy.
Its antispasmodic quality is effective in treating muscle pain, its calmative powers are useful when taken for depression and anxiety, and its carminative abilities are helpful in relieving upset stomach and normalizing digestion.
Preliminary clinical research shows that the sedative and anti-anxiety effects of Valerian occur as a result of direct action in the central nervous system.
Passiflora, or Passion Flower, which is known for treating anxiety, nervousness, restlessness, and other tension related symptoms.
As an all natural tranquilizer, Passiflora is a safer alternative to many medicinal treatments for anxiety, which can have harmful side effects and are often addicting.
A recent study with 36 male and female participants that had been diagnosed with general anxiety disorder concluded that when taken for one month, Passiflora is just as effective as the leading anxiety medication in treating general anxiety disorder. In another study, an all natural herbal remedy containing Passiflora proved to be highly effective in reducing anxiety symptoms in its 91 participants when compared to a placebo.

Passiflora has been shown to:
- Reduce restlessness
- Reduce mild anxiety
- Reduce tension
- Reduce nervousness
- Act as a mild aphrodisiac
Magnesium is an important nutrient that can reduce insomnia, muscle cramps, restlessness, and excitement. Magnesium is an electrolyte, and because neural activity in the brain requires a certain level of electrolytes to function properly, taking a magnesium supplement will compliment the sedative power of Valerian Root and Passiflora for a very soothing, therapeutic effect.
Formula 303 is comprised of 6 parts Valerian Root, 3 parts Passiflora, and 1 part Magnesium Carbonate. This all-natural powerful combination will help to reduce your need to rely on prescription sedatives, which often contain harmful side effects.
Most studies are revealing the benefits of herbal remedies in helping to relieve tension, stress, anxiety and insomnia and more studies are probably necessary to confirm once and for all what thousands of people have known for several centuries: Valerian seems to help relieve tension, anxiety and sleep disorders, especially when combined with Passiflora and magnesium as found in Formula 303.
