Valerian concentrate

$18.00

Muscle relaxant and mild tranquilliser. Feeling of ‘floating in the air’. Potent sedating effects. While studies remain inconclusive about Valerian’s efficacy, extracts of the root appear to affect the GABA neurotransmitter receptor in mammalian nervous systems; this receptor system is the same system effected by sedative benzodiazepine drugs. Valerian can be used as a safer alternative to benzodiazepines, assisting with treatment of stress, tension, anxiety, and insomnia and has been used historically to treat gastrointestinal pain and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The root has also been used to transition patients off benzodiazepines.

PRECAUTIONS: Similarly, being a depressant, chronic and continued use is not recommended as it could lead to apathy or mild depression. Valerian has a pungent, earthy aroma that is palatable to some but repellent to others. It is not recommended to combine Valerian with other sedatives (including some herbs) and depressants, such as alcohol, benzodiazepines, or opiates as it can lead to depression of the central nervous system.
