The aim with the Kana Dream Syrup is to create a reaction of sleepiness and relaxation. In addition, the goal is to keep you asleep throughout the night and be able to wake up without any grogginess. Although we would never claim that this product will cure or treat sleep disorders such as insomnia or sleep deprivation, the goal is indeed to target such ailments. The Dream Syrup was made with 5 different herbs and CBD, then blended with fruit flavors, agave, citric acid and vegetable glycerin to give it a desirable taste. The Dream Syrup was designed to be taken directly from the dropper. However, mixing it with water, tea or any other preferred beverage is an excellent choice as well.

Kava Kava Extract
This liquid extract made from the Certified Organic California Poppy (Eschscholzia californica) dried above-ground parts of the plant from France and Birthwort (Aristolochia Clematitis). California Poppy also known as Eschscholzia californica, Western Poppy, Poppy, and Gold Poppy. The California poppy is the state flower of California, a tender perennial plant bearing blue-green leaves and 2 to 4 inch (5 to 10 cm) wide flowers that open in bright sun and close on cloudy days and at night. The California poppy is considered an ancient plant whose origins are not entirely known. Native Americans in California prized them as a source of food and for the oil that could be extracted from the plant. California Poppy contains alkaloids, principally cryptopine. We combined California poppy with Kava Kava to enhance benefits of both plants. People often consume Kava Kava in an attempt to combat anxiety, stress and insomnia.
Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone in the body that is replicated synthetically and used as a sleep aid. Melatonin’s primary function is the regulate the body’s day and night cycles. Melatonin is usually taken as a sleep aid in pill form. Note that the amount of melatonin used in the syrup’s formulation is the minimal amount necessary to be effective. Melatonin, in some cases, has unexpected undesired side effects, such as symptoms of depression or headaches. If such undesirable conditions occur, discontinue use and reach out to the Kana team for a suitable sleep aid replacement.
Valerian Root Extract
Valerian (Valeriana officinalis, Valerianaceae) is a hardy perennial flowering plant, with heads of sweetly scented pink or white flowers which bloom in the summer months. Valerian flower extracts were used as a perfume in the sixteenth century. Native to Europe and parts of Asia, valerian has been introduced into North America. It is consumed as food by the larvae of some Lepidoptera (butterfly and moth) species including Grey Pug. Valerian has been used as a medicinal herb since at least the time of ancient Greece and Rome. Hippocrates described its properties, and Galen later prescribed it as a remedy for insomnia. In medieval Sweden, it was sometimes placed in the wedding clothes of the groom to ward off the “envy” of the elves. In the sixteenth century the Anabaptist reformer Pilgram Marpeck prescribed valerian tea for a sick woman. Valerian is a well-known and frequently used medicinal herb that has a long and proven history of efficacy. It is noted especially for its effect as a tranquilizer and nervine, particularly for those people suffering from nervous over-strain. Valerian has been shown to encourage sleep, improve sleep quality and reduce blood pressure. It is also used internally in the treatment of painful menstruation, cramps, hypertension, irritable bowel syndrome. It should not be used by people with liver problems. Externally, it is used to treat eczema, ulcers and minor injuries. The root is antispasmodic, carminative, diuretic, hypnotic, powerfully nervine, sedative and stimulant. The active ingredients are called valepotriates, research has confirmed that these have a calming effect on agitated people, but are also a stimulant in cases of fatigue. Known compounds detected in valerian that may contribute to its method of action are: alkaloids (actinidine, chatinine, shyanthine, valerianine, and valerine), gamma-aminobutyric acid, isovaleric acid, iridoids, sesquiterpenes, flavanones (hesperidin, 6-methylapigenin and linarin).
Magnesium may be used as an alternative to over the counter or prescription sleep aids. People should talk to their doctor about using magnesium for sleep if they are using other medications. Magnesium is sometimes recommended to people who suffer from occasional sleepless nights. People with reduced levels of magnesium tend to have higher rates of inflammation.
Ginkgo Biloba Extract
Ginkgo or Maidenhair Tree, the oldest living species of plant on earth, is more than 225 million years old. In the USA it has been one of the ten best selling herbs for more than 7 years and a standardized extract of ginkgo leaf is presently one of the most frequently used plant-based medicines in Europe. The natural herb has a long history in Chinese medicine. Recent research into the plant has discovered a range of medicinally active compounds in the leaves and this has excited a lot of interest in the health-promoting potential of the plant. The leaves contain ginkgolides, these are compounds that are unknown in any other plant species. The leaves are best harvested in the late summer or early autumn just as they begin to change color. They are dried for later use. Ginkgo is often used for anxiety, mental stimulation, dizziness, schizophrenia and PMS.
