Valerian has many healing attributes, ranging from liver problems, digestive ailments, and urinary tract disorders to nausea and insomnia.The sedative effects of valerian root are attributed to its relatively high GABA content.
Since ancient Greek times, valerian root has been valued as an antispasmodic and sleep aid. The first known records reported its use in the treatment of epilepsy. Today, valerian is widely used throughout Europe as a mild sedative and sleep aid for insomnia, and as a balancing agent for hyperexcitability and exhaustion, calming the one and stimulating the other.
