What Good Does Valerian Do For You?
There was time in civilizations that were relatively advanced in terms of their knowledge of the medical uses of the plants around them when certain plant extracts were used for specific medicinal purposes. The Ancient Greeks had their preferred herbal remedies, as did the Indians in their Ayurvedic medicine. The Europeans, such as the English of the Dark and Middle Ages were the same, and each one of these examples mentioned used valerian root for one specific purpose - as a sedative and to help them sleep.
Sure, some of these civilizations also used valerian for other purposes such as relaxing tired and cramped muscles, helping to cure certain digestive and respiratory problems and helping to improve their memory and reduce depression, but fundamentally, valerian was used to achieve what Valium and other benzodiazepines are used for today. Not only does valerian help the sleepless to sleep, but does so without causing tiredness or grogginess in the morning as many sleeping pills do, without wakening them during the night, and without offering any other apparent side-effects.
While no form of sleeping preparation should be given to children, valerian root extract capsules enable adults to enjoy a restful sleep when it would otherwise be impossible. Valerian also does other things for you, but for insomniacs and people needing to sleep well, this is its prime property and one for which it has been used for countless centuries.
As a dietary supplement, take 2 or 3 capsules two times a day with meals or a glass of water.
