Valerian’s bioactive compounds include valerenic acid, isovaleric acid and numerous antioxidants, which are responsible for its relaxing and sedative effects. Valerenic acid may support healthy GABA levels in the brain by inhibiting its breakdown. The antioxidants hesperidin and linarin may also have sleep-enhancing properties.

Valerian has been revered as a medicinal plant for over 2,000 years. Originally native to Asia and Europe, it is now cultivated in the US, China and elsewhere. Sometimes known as ‘nature’s valium’, this powerful herb was traditionally used to promote tranquillity and restful sleep.
Although it has delicately scented flowers, it is the root that is mainly used in herbal preparations due to its powerful sedative compounds and volatile oils. Some research shows that using valerian root may inhibit the breakdown of GABA in the brain, a chemical messenger that helps to regulate nervous system activity.
