What is Nytol Herbal?

Nytol Herbal tablets are a traditional sleep aid which contain natural ingredients. Its use is based exclusively on traditional use.

Nytol combines three extracts:

  • Hop strobile
  • Valerian root
  • Passion flower herb

These three ingredients have been used for decades to treat temporary insomnia and help people to drift off to sleep.

Nytol Herbal is available as tablets or a liquid which you swallow. You can buy Nytol Herbal from your local pharmacy without a prescription. The medicine is licensed under the Traditional Herbal Registration (THR) and bares the certification mark on the packaging.

If you can't get to your local pharmacy, you can buy Nytol Herbal online from Prescription Doctor. All you need to do is answer some general questions about your health so that our medical team can determine whether Nytol Herbal is suitable for you.

All items available on our website are dispatched from our UK based, GPhC registered pharmacy via a fast and secure delivery service.


How does Nytol Herbal work?

While the exact mechanism of Nytol Herbal is not known, the herbal extracts of Nytol Herbal have been used both exclusively and in tandem with one another as a natural treatment for temporary sleep disturbances.

Passion flower, hop strobile and valerian extract have been used traditionally to treat insomnia and aid in a natural slumber. Specifically, passion flower and valerian have been used to treat anxiety by aiding relaxation. It is theorised that it increases the amount of a chemical in the brain called gamma-aminobutyris acid (GABA) in the brain.

GABA inhibits the actions of neurons in the brain, decreasing their activity. It's important to mention that despite the extensive historic use of these ingredients, scientists are still trying to understand how these ingredients work to help aid sleep.


How to take Nytol Herbal?

Take 1 Nytol tablet 30 to 60 minutes before bedtime.

Nytol Herbal Tablets should be swallowed whole with a glass of water.
