Valerian Root Powder

Valerian is a perennial plant, native to Europe and parts of Asia. It grows in meadows and woodlands within moist, temperate climates and has since been naturalized in North America. The plant grows up to two meters high and produces small clusters of white or pink flowers. The flowers have a sweet, pleasant scent, in distinct contrast to the roots of the plant. The root system consists of a vertical rhizome and an abundance of smaller rootlets which are harvested and dried at temperatures less than 105 degrees Fahrenheit.

Valerian Root Benefits

Valerian Root has been used to promote healthy sleep an relaxation, this is backed up by several scientific studies. Other Benefits of Valerian Root Include:

Valerian Root Increases GABA in the brain: Most of the valerian’s effects are attributed to the interaction of its constituents with the GABA receptor. Valerenic acid in valerian increases brain levels of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), which slows down nerve activity in the brain. 
 
It does this by binding to GABA receptors in the amygdala, the region of the brain involved in fear and emotional responses to stress. This produces a calming effect similar to benzodiazepines (anti-anxiety drugs), which is why valerian has been called “nature’s valium”
 
Valerian Root binds to Serotonin Receptors: Valerenic acid, a component of valerian, partially activated serotonin receptors (5-HT5A), which are involved in the sleep-wake cycle.
 
Valerian Root is Anti-Inflammatory: Valerenic acid reduces NF-kappaB activity, which is involved in promoting inflammation.
 

Valerian Root Dosage:

Studies show that 300mg was effective in producing ideal results.
