The sedative of nature!
The word “valere” means health or strength.
Valerian is being used for over 1,000 years and is known worldwide for its ability to relax the central nervous system and for promoting peaceful feelings for mild sleep, reduction of nervous tension, as well as reduction of the levels of concern and anxiety.
It functions as a balancing factor in the central nervous system. It has anti-hypertensive activity, relaxes the muscle layer of the gastrointestinal and facilitates the flow of bile. As a mild sedative, valerian should be taken 30 to 45 minutes before bedtime.
