What is Valerian Extract?
Valerian extract is a standardized hydroalcoholic herbal extract of the root of Valeriana officials L. (Fam. Valerianaceace), a perennial herbaceous plant widely distributed mostly in Europe but also in some parts of South Africa and Asia. It is nowadays cultivated on a large scale for medicinal use in Europe.
Unlike its delicately scented flowers, valerian root has a very strong, earthy odor due to the volatile oils and other compounds responsible for its sedative effects.
Interestingly, the name “valerian” is derived from the Latin verb valere, which means “to be strong” or “to be healthy.” Valerian dry extract is available as a supplement in capsule or liquid form. It can also be consumed as a tea.

Valerian Extract Benefits:
Some people use valerian for depression, mild tremors, epilepsy, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). Valerian dry extract is used for muscle and joint pain. Some women use valerian for menstrual cramps and symptoms associated with menopause, including hot flashes and anxiety.
Valerian standardized extract's mild sedative effects have been used to promote relaxation and sleep for at least 2,000 years. Valerian extract may improve sleep by increasing GABA levels.In fact, lower GABA levels are found in people with short and long-term stress and are linked to anxiety and poor sleep quality.
2) Menopausal Symptoms
In a study of 100 menopausal women with sleep disturbances, valerian root significantly improved sleep quality after 4 weeks.A 3-month study of 60 postmenopausal women found that valerian significantly improved the severity and frequency of hot flashes.
Valerian is known as ‘nature’s valium’ because it supposedly has a similar effect on reducing anxiety as the benzodiazepines Valium and Xanax. These bind to GABA receptors in the brain (amygdala).
4) Stress Management
In a study of 27 patients regularly kept awake at night by stress-inducing thoughts, 89% of those patients had better sleep after one month of valerian treatment. Valerian extract may also reduce physical reactions during stressful situations. It slowed heart rate and reduced blood pressure in response to stress in a 2-week study of 56 healthy people.
Valerian standardized extract increases GABA levels in the brain. Deficiencies in GABA play a role in anxiety, restlessness, and obsessive behavior, which are symptoms often seen in ADHD.In a study of 30 children aged 5 to 11, valerian (3 times a day for 2 weeks) improved ADHD symptoms (sustained inattention and impulsivity and/or hyperactivity). These positive effects disappeared one week after discontinuing valerian treatment.
6) Menstrual Cramps
Because of this, it is commonly used to treat uterine cramping associated with painful menstrual cramps (dysmenorrhea).A 3-day study of 100 female students found that valerian was effective in relieving menstrual cramp pain compared to placebo.
7) Wellbeing During Cancer and HIV Treatment
An 8-week study of 227 patients undergoing cancer therapy did not support the use of valerian for insomnia, although fatigue was reduced.Additionally, in a review, valerian improved insomnia and wellbeing in people undergoing treatment for cancer due to its calming effects. Contrary to popular belief, it did not interact with cancer drugs.
8) Memory and Cognitive Function
In a study of 61 patients, valerian dry extract reduced the risk of cognitive decline a month after heart surgery compared to placebo.Scientists observed the potential of valerenic acid to significantly improve memory by reducing oxidative stress in the memory center of the brain (hippocampus) in mice.
A valerian bath (3 times a week for 3 weeks) significantly improved wellbeing and sleep and decreased pain in 30 people with fibromyalgia.Further research is warranted.
In an 8-week trial of 31 adults with OCD, valerian extract reduced OCD symptoms compared to placebo.There's insufficient evidence to rate its effectiveness for OCD based on a single small trial.
11) Digestive Problems
Valerian is used as a home remedy for stomach cramps. Although it can reduce muscle spasms, current evidence does not support the use of valerian as a digestive aid.In a study on guinea pigs, valepotriates and the essential oil present in valerian reduced contractions in the small intestine.
12) Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)
An 8-week study of 37 people with restless leg syndrome (RLS) found that valerian significantly improved RLS symptoms and decreased daytime sleepiness.However, two reviews found insufficient evidence to confirm valerian’s effectiveness in treating RLS.
