Valerian Root

Valerian Root

Valerian root extract is derived from the valerian plant (Valeriana officinalis), a perennial flower that is native to Europe and Asia. The root of the plant has been used for centuries in traditional medicine due to its calming and sedative properties. Valerian root has a strong, earthy odour, and the extract is commonly used as a dietary supplement for sleep disorders, especially the inability to sleep (insomnia). 


  • Valerian root is most commonly used for sleep disorders, especially for insomnia. The extract has been shown that it may improve the speed of falling asleep and the quality of sleep in some people. 

  • Some studies have suggested that valerian root may help to reduce anxiety and psychological stress.  

  • Preliminary studies suggest that valerian root may help alleviate physical and psychological symptoms associated with the menstrual cycle.
