Description

Valerian Root has long been used for anxiety, restlessness and sleeping problems. It has also been used for conditions such as headaches, depression, arrhythmia and trembling. Preparations for use on the skin have been used to treat sores and acne. As a drink, Valerian is used for digestive problems, flatulence, heart failure, urinary tract disorder and angina.
Several scientific studies have shown that Valerian improves the quality of sleep and reduces sleep latency (the time to fall asleep) particularly in poor sleepers. Its effects increase over four weeks.
Other studies have reported benefits in reducing anxiety symptoms. Valerian is used in combination with other herbs like Passionflower to treat anxiety.
