Valerian Info

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 might help alleviate aches and pains and relax the whole body, promoting good sleep.

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 Benefits

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 natural alternative to the benzodiazepine group of medical drugs, without the adverse effects.

Valerian Side Effects

Studies show no evidence of drowsiness or physical addiction, or any other adverse effects. Take as directed.

Not recommended to combine with alcohol or benzodiazepines, as this may increase the sedative effect. Caution re use during pregnancy unless prescribed by a medical herbalist.

Product Reviews

  • Helps to calm down and fall asleep.

    star

    This tincture is my "first aid" remedy for sleeping problems, it also helps me to calm down when I am stressed, worried or anxious .
    This works well for me and also it gives me peace of mind that I will not get addicted to it. My husband also uses it when needed. Works well for him too.

  • it's amazing

    star

    It's an amazing product from kiwi herb yet again! I took just under 10ml before bed (according to instruction we need 10ml for insomia) and based on one of the earlier review says he needed to take it 1.5 hour before bed time to be effective so I took it about an hour before bed and I just can't help but falling asleep! I've always struggled with active mind, nothing turns it off only pills which I am not allowed to have too often, but this valerian thing is just scarily effective. I am not sure why there is a comment noting "ghastly taste", I surely wouldn't say it tastes like lemonade but it taste just fine to me.
