Used traditionally for insomnia, valerian root is a sedative herb 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 Traditional Chinese Medicine, valerian was also promoted as being beneficial for reducing blood pressure, calming anxiety and stress, and easing the discomfort of muscular spasms and cramps.
Please note that it may take a few weeks before the effects are felt.
Our Valerian Root Tincture is made with dried, organic valerian root and Idaho potato-based vodka. It does not contain water, so please be aware that it is a full-strength, alcohol-based product.
Do not combine valerian with other over-the-counter or prescription sleep aids. Do not take valerian root supplements before driving, operating heavy machinery or doing activities that require alertness.
