Since ancient times, valerian has been used as a medicinal herb. The part of the plant used is the rhizome (“root”), which is generally harvested near the end of September when the essential oil content is highest. The fresh root does not smell bad. Its distinctive aroma develops as the root dries. Valerian possesses calmative, nervine, sedative, analgesic, antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties.
Valerian helps with nervousness (relaxing muscles) and promotes natural sleep habits. It acts like a mild sedative helping to stabilize mood and promote healthy sleep. Traditionally, valerian has been used as a sedative;
improves circulation and reduces mucus from colds. It is also good for fatigue, high blood pressure, insomnia, irritable bowel syndrome, menstrual and muscle cramps, nervousness, pain, spasms and stress. Clinical studies have shown that valerian shortens the time it takes to fall asleep and improves the quality of sleep. Valerian has an anxiolytic effect. These effects are suspected to be mediated through the GABA receptors (a class of receptors that respond to neurotransmitter pathways).
