Valerian officinalis is a plant native to Europe and northern Asia with a long history of use as a herbal medicine. In medieval Europe its properties were so highly esteemed it was called ‘All Heal’. The part of the plant used by herbalists is the root, containing volatile oils and alkaloids.
Valerian acts on the central nervous system to stimulate its ability to calm and relax the body. It has a sedative effect on the higher nerve centres. It will help alleviate aches and pains and relax the whole body, promoting sleep.
Valerian’s powerful nervine, carminative and antispasmodic actions give it a role in cases of nervous tension, stress, excitability, hysteria, and the associated symptoms of these states such as neuralgia, insomnia and colic. It will help with disturbed sleep patterns and improve sleep quality. As such, valerian is a safe alternative to the benzodiazepine group of medical drugs, without the adverse effects.
Due to its antispasmodic action it has been used for epilepsy since the 16th century.
Valerian Side Effects
Bought this for my husband. It is a great product and really helped him with his sleeping issues; specifically waking in the night and unable to get back to sleep. Will continue to use. Just be aware the odour is quite overbearing and I always know when he has taken it before he comes back into the room! Small price though I guess for a fast acting sleep aid.
Having tried other herbal remedies to promote sleep, this is the best. Two tablets one hour before bed has me asleep very quickly and if I wake during the night I go back to sleep quickly, instead of lying awake and clock watching!
Valerian for nervous tension
I find this product is effective for nervous tension without causing sleepiness.
