Valerian root is tea a natural and productive sleep aid that will not impede on or hinder the normal processes and stages of human sleep patterns. Valerian root elicits tranquilizing effects on the mind and body as well as soporific influences on the nervous system. It is said to be a preferred sleep aid over other methods due to the absence of a groggy hangover like feeling upon waking up.
The root of this Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) herb promotes healthy relaxation and sleep and is used primarily as a mild sedative to relieve some symptoms of restlessness, anxiety and to help assist to overcome mild insomnia. Although the flowers have a sweet and pleasant scent, the roots have a pungent odour that is sometimes compared to the smell of sweaty socks. Studies have shown that an extract of this herb can significantly reduce the amount of time it takes to fall asleep without changing the normal stages of sleep. Not only does it offer a solid night's sleep, but it's also amazing at naturally calming anxiety and improving stress management. Caution is advised during the use of other sedative drugs, as valerian root has the potential to increase the effects of some sedatives.
