Read our Horse Chestnut Review

Valeriana officinalis is a plant that is primarily used to soothe anxiety and makes people go to sleep easier. Traditionally, the roots of the Valeriana officinalis are brewed for tea or eaten to remote sedation and relaxation. Moreover, Valeriana officinalis serves to enhance the signaling of GABA or gamma-aminobutyric acid, one of the main sedative neurotransmitters in the brain. However, further researches and clinical studies should still be conducted regarding Valeriana officinalis and its more potential benefits to the human health.
