Valerian root has been used medicinally since the time of Hippocrates. Ancient medical texts refer to the unpleasant odor of the herb by naming it phu. The taste of valerian root is both sweet and spicy and somewhat bitter, but the odor is unpleasant.
-Valerian is a tranquilizer and calmative useful for disorders such as restlessness, nervousness, insomnia, hysteria, menstrual problems, headaches, and nervous stomach. It has also been used for menstrual states of agitation, menopause, neuralgia, and fainting. Valerian alkaloids have been known to lower blood pressure.
-The German Commission E has approved valerian for restlessness and sleeping disorders based on nervous conditions.
-Valerian has a much more pronounced effect when used by people with chronic insomnia than when used by people whose sleeping difficulties are temporary. It is specially suitable for older adults who fall asleep easily but have difficulty staying asleep throughout the night. In addition, this herb relieves panic attacks that occur at night.
