What is Valeriana Officinalis Extract?

Valeriana Officinalis Extract, which is a centuries-old herbal remedy. The extract comes from a perennial plant called Valeriana officinalis or valerian. Native to North America, Europe and Asia, this plant is a common herb with sedative and hypnotic properties. Medical researchers believe that the volatile oil in valerian root is responsible for these effects, which interact with neurotransmitters like GABA and amino acids like tyrosine, arginine and glutamine.

Valerian is also a common dietary supplement and its roots and stems are formed into extracts for capsules or teas. As an herbal medicine, most people use it to help remedy insomnia or anxiety.

Valeriana Officinalis Benefits

Valeriana Officinalis Extract Benefits:


The most popular use of this versatile herb is, without doubt, as a sleep aid. Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a neurotransmitter that sends chemical messages through the brain and nervous system. Its role is to inhibit or reduce the activity of neurons or nerve cells. In large enough quantities GABA can cause a sedative effect – valeriana officinalis root extract has been shown to increase GABA levels in the brain which can in turn not only reduce the amount of time taken to fall asleep, it can also improve the quality of sleep too.

A double blind study conducted by the Foellinge Health Centre in Sweden found that the effects of Valerian on poor sleep were significant. 44 percent of the participants reported perfect sleep, whilst 89 percent reported improved sleep – none of this group reported any side effects either, including morning drowsiness.


The aforementioned GABA also helps to calm anxiety with its regulation of nerve cells. The valerenic acid and valerenol contained in the valeriana officinalis extract act as anti-anxiety agents, stabilising the central nervous system. The improved GABA levels make it easier for the mind and body to relax, meaning valeriana officinalis root extract can also help to keep your stress levels down – significantly helping with daily stress management.

3.Pain Relief

Valerian appears to work directly on the nervous system as a natural pain reliever. Researchers from “The Indian Journal of Experimental Biology” found that the whole extract and the isolated essential oil had a significant analgesic effect on rats. In addition to this, the essential oil increased the effectiveness of aspirin.

4.Muscle Relaxant

Naturally sedative and antispasmodic, valeriana officinalis extract acts as a powerful muscle relaxant and can be especially helpful in easing menstrual cramps. It can effectively calm the severe uterine muscle contractions experienced by some women during menstruation. This was validated by a double-blind, randomised placebo controlled study from the Islamic Azad University in Iran.

5.Heart Health

Extensive studies have found that GABA also regulates blood pressure. Properly regulated blood pressure has a direct positive impact on the health of the heart, with high blood pressure increasing the risk of a heart attack or stroke..
