Originating from Europe and parts of Asia, Valerian is an herb that also thrives in North America. The root of Valerian is utilized for its various medicinal properties. Its primary application is in addressing sleep disorders, particularly insomnia. Additionally, Valerian is orally administered for anxiety and psychological stress, although scientific research supporting these uses is limited.


With a history dating back to ancient Greece and Rome, Valerian has been employed as a medicinal herb for centuries. Hippocrates detailed its therapeutic uses, and in the 2nd century, Galen prescribed Valerian for insomnia. By the 16th century, it was recognized for treating nervousness, trembling, headaches, and heart palpitations. In the mid-19th century, Valerian was considered a stimulant, and even during World War II, it found use in England to alleviate the stress of air raids.

  • Numerous studies suggest that valerian can reduce the time it takes to fall asleep by about 15 to 20 minutes and improve sleep quality. Doses of 400-900 mg of valerian extract taken up to 2 hours before bedtime seem to work best. Continuous use for several days, up to four weeks, may be needed before an effect is noticeable.†
  • Some studies indicate that valerian may enhance sleep when combined with other herbs like hops and lemon balm. It might also improve sleep quality for individuals withdrawing from the use of sleeping pills.†
  • Early research suggests that valerian may reduce anxiety.†
  • Taking 255 mg of valerian three times daily for two menstrual cycles could reduce pain and the need for other pain relievers during menstruation, according to early research.†
