Spread the love

Valerian is one of the best known herbs for promoting a good night’s sleep and easing nervous tension. Its Latin name, valeriana, actually means “well-being,” and it has been used since the 17th century for its sedative effects. Valerian is a popular natural tranquilizer and is an excellent remedy for all forms of nervousness. It may help with anxiety, promote sleep and may even help those who are suffering from exhaustion or mental burnout.

Pathway Sleep Support offers a comprehensive blend of nutrients, including 50mg of valerian to help promote a peaceful night’s sleep.

As with any herb, there can be side effects and for those who cannot digest it properly; these may include headaches or feelings of nervousness. Also, if you take any medications, check with your doctor to be sure there are no negative drug interactions.
