About Wild Valerian Root
Valerian has a long traditional history for use as a nerve relaxant. Due to it’s actions on the central nervous system, Valerian extracts have been used traditionally for improving sleep quality and to calm the nerves. Valerian is a perennial plant, native to Europe and parts of Asia. It grows in meadows and woodlands within moist, temperate climates and has since been naturalized in North America. The plant grows up to two meters high and produces small clusters of white or pink flowers. The flowers have a sweet, pleasant scent, in distinct contrast to the roots of the plant. The root system consists of a vertical rhizome and an abundance of smaller rootlets which are harvested and dried at temperatures less than 105 degrees Fahrenheit. Valerian promotes healthy relaxation and sleep.
