Description

Valerian is a plant with mild sedative properties that is sold as a sleeping aid and to treat anxiety. But does it work?

In the United States (U.S.), valerian dietary supplements are usually sold as sleeping aids. In Europe, people more often take them for restlessness and anxiety.

There are actually over 250 valerian species, but Valeriana officinalis is the one most commonly used for medicinal purposes.

Valerian is considered safe by the U.S. Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) and is gentler than synthetic drugs, such as benzodiazepines and barbiturates. For these reasons, Valerian could be worth trying for anxiety or insomnia relief.

Some other benefits of consuming Valerian Root on a daily basis include, but not limited to:

  • Aids with Insomnia & sleep patterns
  • Sleep quality
  • Relief from restlessness and other anxiety disorder symptoms
  • no “hangover effect” in the morning
  • Relieves Migraines
  • Regulates blood pressure
  • Treat menopause symptoms
  • Reduce frequency of seizures in epilepsy
  • Aids with digestion
  • Reduces bloating
  • Helps with Hyperactivity
  • Reduces menstrual cramps

Recommended dose: The appropriate dose of Valerian Root depends on several factors such as the user’s age, health, and several other conditions. Always start with low dosage and see how your body and overall well-being reacts to the herb.

WARNING: * Valerian may increase the effects of other sleep aids. It also increases the sedative effect of depressants, such as alcohol, benzodiazepines and narcotics. Valerian can interfere with some prescription medications. And it may interact with other dietary supplements, such as St. John’s wort.

Pregnancy – There isn’t enough information about the safety of Valerian during pregnancy or breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.
