Improves sleep latency (time required to get to sleep), sleep quality, reduces periods of wakefulness, increases slow-wave sleep (consolidates non REM sleep); reduces anxiety; relaxes smooth muscle (antispasmodic/anti-convulsant) e.g. intestinal tract. The herb has also been shown to lower blood pressure, enhances the flow of bile (choleretic), and has anti-biotic activity.
Insomnia – Valerian root contains many different constituents, including volatile oils that appear to contribute to the sedating properties of the herb. Central nervous system sedation is regulated by receptors in the brain known as GABA-A receptors. Valerian appears to attach to these receptors exerting a sedating effect. Double-blind trials have found that valerian is an effective treatment for people with mild to moderately severe insomnia.
