Valerian Root Organic
For some people, falling asleep is sometimes the most challenging part of the sleep cycle.
Valerian is often used for tension, restlessness, emotional stress, pain, insomnia, anxiety, nervous palpitations, nervous irritation, cardiovascular arrhythmias, attention deficit and hyperactivity syndromes, gastrointestinal cramping, menstrual cramps, shingles, and backaches.
Valerian shortens the time it takes to get to sleep as well as increasing the quality of sleep. Similar to sedative-hypnotic medications, Valerian is believed to activate gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptors that are involved in sleep promotion and regulation.
Dosage: Infusion: 1-2 teaspoons per cup of water
