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
Valerian for nervous tension
I find this product is effective for nervous tension without causing sleepiness.
Keeps me asleep
This product really works. I suffer from insomnia where I can't switch off my brain and lie awake thinking all night long, tossing and turning and suffering day after day. Taking Valerian 2000 really puts me to sleep - and keeps me asleep. There's no groggy feeling the next day. I awake feeling well rested and ready to take on the day. Highly recommend.
Didn't like it
Not effective at all and also tastes like it's rancid. Choose blackmores instead.
