Most commonly used for sleep disorders, such as insomnia, valerian root is most widely known as a natural sedative. The herb which grows across Europe, Asia and North America can also be used as a flavouring in foods and drinks – the medicinal properties are gained from the root. At JFS, we stock this herb wholesale, and in either cut, powder or tincture form.
While there is some conflicting research when it comes to the results of valerian root, a sequence of studies has shown the effect it has in decreasing the amount of time it can take for a person to fall into sleep. It additionally aids the quality of sleep and can be especially helpful if a person is trying to stop taking sleeping pills, having opted for something more natural.
When combined with hops and lemon balm, the effectiveness of valerian has been seen to increase further. When a user begins taking this herb over a period of time, they are likely to see a positive impact on their sleeping pattern.
While there is nothing that can stop or prolong menopause, there are remedies to some of the symptoms of postmenopausal women. Studies have revealed how valerian root can reduce the severity and frequency of hot flashes.
