VALERIAN ROOT FROM NATURE'S WAY
Valerian Root has been used as sedative and mild tranquilizer for centuries. A great alternative to conventional sleeping pills. This perennial herb has also been recommended for anxiety, nervousness and digestive disorders, it may benefit those who experience insomnia and sleeplessness due to nervous system conditions or stress.
Valerian has been used traditionally for many years as a sedative and alleviator of anxiety. It has many benefits over the use of pharmaceutical sedatives and sleep aids. Valerian does not alter the brain waves that occur as a part of normal sleep patterns. Therefore the sleep that you get after taking valerian is just as restful as normal sleep.
Additionally valerian does not give you a “hangover” the morning after you use it. Valerian’s chemical components, the valepotriates, valerianic acids and pungent oils, relax the central nervous system by binding to the same receptors that are used by sedative medications. They also relax the gastrointestinal tract and skeletal muscles. Valerian can be used for restless leg syndrome and muscle spasms. It can also be used for stress and tension associated with PMS.
