Valerian Info

Valerian acts on the central nervous system to stimulate its ability to calm and relax the body. It has a sedative effect on the higher nerve centres. It might help alleviate aches and pains and relax the whole body, promoting good sleep.

In medieval Europe its properties were so highly esteemed it was called ‘All Heal’. The part of the plant used by herbalists is the root, containing volatile oils and alkaloids.

Valerian Benefits

Valerian’s powerful nervine, carminative and antispasmodic actions give it a role in cases of nervous tension, stress, excitability, hysteria, and the associated symptoms of these states such as neuralgia, insomnia and colic. It will help with disturbed sleep patterns and improve sleep quality. As such, valerian is a natural alternative to the benzodiazepine group of medical drugs, without the adverse effects.

Valerian Side Effects

Studies show no evidence of drowsiness or physical addiction, or any other adverse effects. Take as directed.

Not recommended to combine with alcohol or benzodiazepines, as this may increase the sedative effect. Caution re use during pregnancy unless prescribed by a medical herbalist.

  • This is the best

    star- web-tec.info

    I have chronic insomnia and I have spent a fortune on sleeping products including prescription medication but I always come back to Sleep Ezy - it works the best for me. I dont have a problem getting to sleep - I have a problem staying asleep and Sleep Ezy really helps. I take 2 tablets 30 minutes before I turn out my light. If I take 3 tabs it doesnt work the same - I wake up. I find that I can get 7to 8 hrs sleep most nights. There are the very occasional nights that I do wake but this product has given me the confidence that I will sleep and I am not getting all anxious about not sleeping which can keep me awake. I do find that the product needs to be fresh so if I have a period of not using it for a while it doesnt have the same effect. When I replace it with a new bottle, it works well. This product does not leave me groggy in the morning. I highly recommend Sleep Ezy.

    This tincture is my "first aid" remedy for sleeping problems, it also helps me to calm down when I am stressed, worried or anxious .
    This works well for me and also it gives me peace of mind that I will not get addicted to it. My husband also uses it when needed. Works well for him too.
