Valerian Root Extract Powder
Health Benefits Provided by Valerian Root Extract
Valerian acts as a mild sedative which is a capability that can be used to treat a variety of equally mild conditions. It does this by causing the body to produce excess GABA. If Valerian is taken through the mouth it can cause the time that it takes for one to fall asleep to be reduced by quite a lot. It can also improve quality of sleep.
Valerian is often combined with St. John's Wort because it causes it to work better. There are medications which are routinely prescribed to help with sleep issues however Valerian root is often prized over these medications because it is natural and safe while having gentler effects. Those who suffer from insomnia prefer this supplement because it is a less harsh alternative to their synthetic medications. In Germany it has been approved for official use in treating sleep disorders.

CONCENTRATION OF VALERIAN ROOT
This filler-free extract is derived from the powdered roots and stems of the Valerian plant. It may be mixed with water and has what many described as an unpleasant smell - a common characteristic with Valerian root. It is extracted from the roots as this is the area of the plant that is most potent.
