I hear that it actually helps people to fall asleep and feel less stress.

My question is specifically for the sleep 'rescue' remedy which has the following ingredients according to their site:

  • White Chestnut: To help ease restless mind.
  • Star of Bethlehem: For trauma and shock.
  • Clematis: For the tendency to “pass out”, and unconsciousness, being ‘far away’ and not present mentally.
  • Cherry Plum: Fear of mind giving way, verge of breakdown, anger.

  • Impatiens: For irritability, tension and fidgety.

  • Rock Rose: For frozen terror and panic.

They don't state the potency or concentration of each ingredient which makes me suspicious.

The wiki article and linked papers don't go to a specific remedy or ingredient and have minimal evidence.

What does the evidence say?

  • Is anything wrong with the clinical reviews mentioned in the Wikipedia article you are linking to? – Tor-Einar Jarnbjo Jan 20 '14 at 23:40
  • @Tor-EinarJarnbjo They don't go into specific ingredients and their sample size is small. – GinKin Jan 21 '14 at 7:43
