Valerian Root Max-V
Valerian Root Max-V, provided by Douglas Laboratories, supplies 200 mg of
standardized valerian root in each vegetarian capsule.
Valerian root has been used since antiquity to relieve emotional stress
associated with fear or anger. As a non-narcotic herbal sedative, valerian root
extract can act as a food supplement that promotes restful sleep. As a muscle
relaxant, valerian root may be helpful in supporting neck and shoulder tension,
gastrointestinal health and muscle relaxation.
Valerian root’s effectiveness as a sedative relaxant is thought to be due to its
content of the valpotriates, i.e. valtrate and isovaltrate. A study of 23
outpatients at a large clinical hospital showed that most study patients felt
that the herb was moderately to extremely helpful for supporting restful sleep.
Another study of valerian root’s sedative properties with 99 subjects indicated
that there was no negative impact on alertness and concentration the morning
after a single or repeated administrations of 600 mg of valerian extract.
Valerian Root Max-V may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals wishing
to support healthy sleep and muscle relaxation.
