The active ingredients of Somnapure include melatonin, L-theanine, valerian root extract and hops. Melatonin is a substance that is produced naturally in the body and is currently the most popular compound included in various sleep aids. L-theanine is effective at reducing stress, but little research concludes it is effective as a sleep aid, as of 2015. Valerian root extract is commonly used in herbal medicine to treat insomnia and is backed by scientific studies confirming its sleep promotion effectiveness. Hops works to relax the body and mind, and encourage sleep, according to Consumer Health Digest.

Sleep drugs in general can be addictive with numerous health-damaging side effects. Natural sleep aids such as Somnapure are the better option, but Somnapure is not ranked as the best option among sleep aids, as of 2015. Since Somnapure is not clinically proven to improve sleep, it is prudent to research and discover natural sleep aid products that have significant clinical evidence to back their claims, says Consumer Health Digest.
