How it works
Valerian is classified as a sedative herb, and has been traditionally used to induce relaxation. Herbal sedatives are indicated for the relief of sleeplessness and insomnia.
This formula helps to improve sleep quality amongst habitually poor and irregular sleepers. Valerian can also help to relieve temporary difficulties in falling asleep.
While single doses can be helpful, evidence suggests that continuous use over one or two weeks will produce even better results.
Valerian contains several groups of compounds including valerenic acid and its derivatives which may be responsible for its sedative activity.
Adults - Take 1 tablet 1 hour before bed, or when experiencing insomnia.
Children (under 12 years) - As professionally prescribed.
Contraindications and Cautions
- May rarely cause mild gastrointestinal symptoms, headache or morning lethargy.
