More details

RECOMMENDED USE:

Helps to promote sleep/used as a sleep aid. Take 2 or 3 tablets 1/2 hour to 1 hour before bedtime. Take an earlier dose during the evening if necessary.

DESCRIPTION:

Valerian root (Valeriana officinalis) is a flowering plant that is native to Europe and the temperate regions of Asia. It has been used as a sleep aid for over 1,000 years. Its ability to help relax the central nervous system, promote feelings of calm, decrease levels of anxiety and stress and enhance sleep are known to millions the world over.

HOW IT WORKS:

Nature’s Harmony® Valerian Root acts as a mild sedative on the central nervous system. It helps speed the onset of sleep and improves its quality. Valerian promotes sleep by interacting with certain brain receptors called GABA receptors and benzodiazapine receptors, to which valerian binds very weakly. It may also improve the ability to concentrate. In addition, it is a relaxant and an antispasmodic. The herb also appears to have antianxiety and mood-enhancing properties.

RESEARCH:

Clinical studies have reported safe use of valerian for medicinal purposes in over 12,000 patients in trials lasting up to 28 days. Studies conducted among patients with sleep disorders confirmed that valerian reduces the time to fall asleep and improves the quality of sleep by increasing deep sleep.

INTERACTIONS AND SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS:

Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if pregnant or breastfeeding, or if sleeplessness persists continuously for more than three weeks (chronic insomnia) or worsens. Do not consume with alcohol, drugs or natural health products with sedative properties. Exercise caution if operating heavy machinery or driving a motor vehicle within two hours of consumption.
