Product Description

Details

We all lead such busy lives, with scarcely enough time to fit it all in. The fast pace and stress of modern living totally frazzles the nervous system. With so much to do just switching off and relaxing, or even dropping off to sleep, is a real challenge for many of us. This is where Valerian steps in, having been used for thousands of years as a sedative and relaxant.

The ancient Greeks, including father of medicine Hippocrates himself, testified to Valerian as a remedy to insomnia and anxiety, and there is good evidence of it being used across Europe as far North as Sweden, for hundreds of years. In the wild Valerian is a perennial flowering plant, with vivid sweet smelling flowers in the summer months. It is common across Asia and Europe, and has also been introduced in the USA.

The science behind valerian root as a herbal remedy

Valerian contains many compounds that may contribute to sedative effects, and the science supporting its potency looks promising. These compounds include actinidine chatinine,shyanthine, valerianine, and valerine Gamma-aminobutyric acid, known as GABA, and Isovaleric acid. Many experts believe the amino acid GABA, which has strong interactions with the cerebral nervous system, is the key component.

It is thought that Valerian naturally boosts the GABA levels that occur in the brain, and this produces a sedative effect helping reduce brain activity and allowing users to drop off more easily. The overall effect is the inhibition of excess nervous transmission, which is very calming.

Valerian root is used traditionally to treat insomina, restlessness, anxiety, and high blood pressure.It may also help with menstrural cramps.
Fushi valerian root capsules are 100% valerian extract with an optimal 430mg per capsule. They are manufactured to offer maximum effect from the plants natural compounds. They do not contain gelatin and can be used guilt free by vegans and vegetarians alike.

Valerian is great for treating anxiety- relax, unwind, and enjoy being calm.

This valerian is really clean and subtle, you have to really observe your energy levels closely to notice it working, it's really slow and progressive to work so give it chance, sometimes I take 2 at once in addition with a few drops of Californian poppy

it works as should Valerian work. nothing more nothing less. Capsules do not cause my belly to get upset - other brands use bulking agent that makes me feel uncomfortable. I use it if I have to and it works for me.
