Some popular ingredients currently being used in products to promote relaxation or reduce stress include botanicals such as chamomile, passionflower, and valerian.

Most people are familiar with chamomile in tea form as a mild sedative and muscle relaxant and another less well-known botanical, gotu kola, has been known to enhance cognitive function including memory and alertness and reduce mood disorders.

Passionflower is a sedative, and valerian is a muscle relaxant.

One company has created an ingredient for beverages from a plant extract derived from lemon balm leaves of the species Melissa officinalis L. that acts simultaneously on stress and its associated symptoms like sleep disorders thanks to its specific composition.

Another company created a pure form of the amino acid L-theanine to be added to beverages shown in a study to reduce anxiety, and keep blood pressure down in adults.
