Rewarded Review

I don't live without this product in my life. I've been taking it for a few months and it really works a lot for me! I did some research and found that, Valerian root contains a number of compounds that may promote sleep and reduce anxiety. These include valerenic acid, isovaleric acid and a variety of antioxidants. Valerian has received attention for its interaction with gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), a chemical messenger that helps regulate nerve impulses in your brain and nervous system. Researchers have shown that low GABA levels related to acute and chronic stress are linked to anxiety and low-quality sleep (1Trusted Source, 2Trusted Source, 3Trusted Source). Valerenic acid has been found to inhibit the breakdown of GABA in the brain, resulting in feelings of calmness and tranquility. This is the same way anti-anxiety medications like Valium and Xanax work. I highly recommend it. If you think my comment helped you click yes!

NOW Foods Valerian Root is a terrific product and very good value. I take it for two primary reasons. First, alongside my melatonin supplements, I sleep like a baby and have wonderful dreams. Second, Valerian Acid triggers a special kind of deep sleep, called Slow-Wave Deep Sleep, during which the anterior pituitary gland in the brain releases a polypeptide called Somatotropin. Somatotropin stimulates the growth of new cartilage, cartilage being what cushions and lubricates our joints. So, if you are taking Undenatured Collagen II and Glucosamine, taking a valerian tablet an hour before bed will round out your joint therapy strategy.

I know that Valerian needs to be drunk for a whole month to have an excellent result, as it accumulates in the body. I had already bought a package of 100 capsules here, thinking that this would be enough for me for a long time, but my family members also decided to be calmer and sleep better. The capsules are of excellent quality and have a pleasant valerian smell. The ingredients contain only valerian root and a capsule of cellulose. We take 2 capsules at bedtime. Вставить

excellent product. I knew about Valerian root a long time ago, and we have valerian drops in a liquid, but these capsules really do the job! they help me sleep when it's hard, and if I'm a bit anxious, I can take it at night, of course, with doctors' approval, amazing affect!

Incredible! For me it works perfectly, it makes me sleep like a baby. I fall into a deep sleep. Impossible to live without this product. Valerian really works well to make you relax and get a deep sleep. It is obvious that the effects depend on each organism. I take 2 capsules 30 minutes before bed and it works perfectly. Amazing how Valerian works for me. If my comment and photos helped you please click yes.

I have been taking NOW Foods Valerian Root for insomnia, and it seems like it has been helping me sleep more soundly! NOW Foods is a brand I trust, and this seems like a high quality supplement. The package contains 100 veg capsules and each capsule contains 500 mg of valerian root. I take two a couple of hours before I go to bed and it seems like it's helping.

Great quality product that's suitable for most people and ages. First time trying out Valerian Root, so not sure about it's effects and benefits so far. The packaging is all good, sealed and everything. Good to know that the ingredient is just literally valerian root (it smells like dirt?).

A few people close to me regularly have trouble getting to sleep and sleeping through the night. I’ve found valerian to be potent. I wouldn’t say this is a cure but does help and is worth trying. You can also find in a dropper bottle. The scent can be off putting with valerian so just know. I appreciate the veg capsules nice quality

These really take the edge off. I'm a 34 year old male, 185cm, 90kg. I take 2 capsules mixed in water with 5g melatonin. The sensation is relaxation. I can feel it in my shoulders. My mind gets quiet. My body gets calm. This is the valerian. Then the melatonin comes in behind it for the KO. I wake up in the morning feeling like a new man. This is a really cost-efficient purchase. You won't regret it.

As compared to other brands, this valerian root has a stronger, pungent, “dirty socks” smell. The stronger the smell, the more potent the constituents. I began taking this many years ago for Fibromyalgia, not only to get into a deeper REM level of sleep, but to calm restless leg syndrome. I use it at a higher dosage than bottle label suggests. It works well for me alone, or in combo with other herbs or supplements such as Melatonin and/or LTheanine, etc. If you’ve tried other brands and they haven’t worked for you, try this one, and try increasing dosage a capsule at a time until you find yourself feeling better rested, or without “dancing legs “ from RLS. There is no hangover effect the next day, and no buzz after taking it. Simply relaxing. If after making certain you have a decent intake and balance of Magnesium (Glycinate or Citrate forms), Potassium and Calcium, and drink plenty of water but you still have Restless Legs, try this!
