Valerian root is a sedative herb, traditionally used for insomnia, which produces a calming and restorative effect on the body’s central nervous system. Valerian increases Gamma-amino butyric acid (GABA) levels in the brain, helping to reduce brain activity and allowing users to fall asleep more easily. It’s also an antispasmodic, which means it acts as a natural muscle relaxer. In addition to helping provide restful sleep, valerian may also be beneficial for reducing blood pressure, calming anxiety and stress, and easing the discomfort of muscular spasms and cramps.
Linden is considered a very gentle nervine and is wonderful for children. It’s calming and sedative effects mimics those of the neurotransmitter GABA, which help regulate nervous system activity. It can relax the body, ease anxiety, soothe nerves, and relieve stress and insomnia.
Passionflower is thought to promote calming effects by increasing the levels of the chemical gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), which reduces the activity of some neurons that cause anxiety. It may be beneficial for reducing stress and overcoming insomnia, when combined with other calming herbs.
Please note that it may take a few weeks before the effects are felt.
