Need a good night's sleep? Often called nature's tranquilizer, Valerian is said to induce a sound sleep, calm the nerves, ease pain and relax nervous tension and anxiety. The herb has also been used to help children with hyperactivity and behavioral problems.
In the 1970s, scientific human studies were performed on Valerian which lead the German Commission E to approve its use a sleep aid in 1985.
