What is Valerian Root Extract?

Valerian root extract has a long history of use in Western Europe as a sedative and sleep aid, with medicinal uses dating back to Hippocrates time (ca. 460-377 B.C) such as: treating headaches, insomnia, nervousness, restlessness, menstrual problems, nervous stomach, and hysteria. Clinical trials have confirmed the use of valerian for treating insomnia, especially the insomnia that accompanies menopause. It also soothes the digestive system and may prevent cramping caused by irritable bowel syndrome.

The root must be dried at temperatures below 105 degrees F (40 degrees C) for its medicinally active compounds to form. In teas, it tastes sweet and spicy if somewhat bitter, but its odor is mildly unpleasant. Ancient medical texts acknowledge the odor of the herb by calling the plant phu. Valerian powder is often mixed with hops and/or lemon balm. Add a bit of sweetener for teas.

valerian benefits

Valerian Root Extract Benefits:

Possibly Effective for

Insomnia. Although not all research agrees, most research shows that taking valerian seems to improve sleep quality. Continuous use for several days and up to 4 weeks may be needed before an effect is noticeable. Valerian can also help improve sleep when combined with other herbs, including hops, passionflower, and lemon balm.

Insufficient Evidence for

Anxiety. It is unclear if valerian is beneficial for reducing anxiety.

Menstrual cramps (dysmenorrhea). Early research shows that taking 255 mg of valerian three times daily for two menstrual cycles reduces pain and the need for other pain relievers during menstruation.

Symptoms of menopause. Early research shows that taking 675-1060 mg of valerian root daily for 8 weeks might reduce hot flashes in postmenopausal women.

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Early research shows that taking valerian root extract seems to reduce the emotional, behavioral, and physical symptoms associated with PMS when started on the 21st day of the menstrual cycle and continued for 7 days.

Anxiety before surgery. Taking valerian seems to work as well as taking the drug midazolam for reducing anxiety in adults getting their wisdom teeth pulled. But higher quality research is needed to confirm.

A disorder that causes leg discomfort and an irresistible urge to move the legs (restless legs syndrome or RLS). Early research shows that valerian does not improve symptoms in people with this condition.

Stress. Early research suggests that valerian may reduce the stress response when doing a stressful mental task or a verbal presentation.

Tension headache. Early research shows that taking valerian root extract can make tension headaches less severe and reduce disability from these headaches.

Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).




Mild tremors.

Muscle and joint pain.

Stomach upset.

Other conditions.
