Valerian ~ “Natures Valium”
We all know the importance of a great night sleep. However, what if you are struggling to get that much needed 8hrs of shuteye?
One alternative is to look at a natural supplement like Valerian Root as an option.
Valerian root has been used since ancient times to promote tranquility, improve sleep and has often been referred to as “Nature’s Valium.”
The compounds in Valerian root such as valerenic acid, isovaleric acid and antioxidants, appear to have sedative and sleep-enhancing properties in addition to reducing anxiety.
Valerenic acid has been found to inhibit the breakdown of gamma-amino butyric acid GABA in the brain, resulting in feelings of calmness and tranquility.
GABA is a chemical messenger that helps regulate nerve impulses in your brain and nervous system.
Research has shown that low GABA levels related to acute and chronic stress are linked to anxiety and low-quality sleep.
Valerian appears to be safe and non-habit forming when taken at the recommended dosage. However, it’s important to speak with your doctor before taking valerian, especially if you’re taking other medications or have a serious health condition.
Snooze from Aeryon Wellness contains 300mg of Valerian along with Passionflower, L-theanine, GABA, Magnesium and Chinese Hawthorn. This combination was formulated to assist those who have a hard time getting to sleep and those who find themselves wide awake at 3am unable to get back to sleep.
So if you have tidied up your sleep habits and still are finding it difficult to hit that much needed deep sleep, you can take a look at this all natural option and start Snoozing Your Night Away.
