Well, that should help you sleep. I know a few of those things are definitely sleep aids.

As for safety, not so sure, but don't take it if you are a woman who is trying to get pregnant or if you are pregnant. Valerian root is an abortificiant and can trigger miscarriages. It was actually used as a method of birthcontrol during the renaissance.

Valeriana and hops extracts are widely in use in Germany. Melatonin drugs however are forbidden in Germany, I don't know how much it contains, maybe it's only as much to be able to being put on the label (might sell better).

I think melatonin could be animal-derived since it is a hormone for many animals. (Melatonin can come from plants too, if I'm not mistaken?)
