Fresh Natural Grown Valerian Root 100 Caps
Valerian Root is Nature's Tranquilizer. For centuries it has been used to regulate the nervous system and relieve tension, irritability, nervous exhaustion and stress, anxiety and hysteria.
As a sedative, Valerian Root is said to relieve insomnia, helping to provide a sound sleep without the morning-after grogginess frequently associated with prescription drugs (such as Valium, etc.). It also does not lead to dependence or addiction when used.
As an antispasmodic, Valerian Root helps to alleviate muscle, intestinal and menstrual cramps.
Considered an analgesic, Valerian's pain relieving qualities are thought to be especially beneficial to athletes or anyone engaged in aerobics, weight training or strenuous exercise as a preventative and recovery treatment for aches and pains. It is also said to ease the pain of headaches.
Valerian has been used since ancient times as an expectorant, reducing mucus from colds, and it is also said to alleviate throat tickling and nervous coughs.
Because of its relaxant properties, Valerian has been thought to benefit those who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome and other problems of the intestines and stomach. Valerian appears to increase peristalsis in the intestines (contraction and relaxing of muscles), which moves things along more easily. The herb is also thought to prevent fermentation in the stomach and decrease gas and intestinal colic.
