True Calm Supplement - safe?

Are any of the ingredients in Now Foods True Calm Amino Relaxer dangerous?

I'm thinking about trying this supplement for social anxiety, but I don't know anything about a number of the ingredients:

Looking at the ingredients you have two vitamins, a mineral, four amino acids, and an herb.

The first two are in a lot of supplements and are not crazy doses. The amino acids are all have common food sources and, again, are not crazy doses. The herb is in a lot of relaxing teas. So, you wont hurt yourself but if your diet is good this doesn't look any better than a box of sleepy time tea.

I do drink sleepy time tea during the day for calming effects. Give it a try if the supplements don't work out.
