How Valerian Helps Improve Sleep

How Valerian Helps Improve Sleep

Low quality sleep is a frequent problem for many and can hinder daily life and negatively impact health and longevity.1

Valerian root (Valeriana officinalis) contains many different biologically active compounds including valerenic acid which has been shown to inhibit the break down of GABA in the brain which results in feeling calm and relaxed.

A 2006 review and meta-analysis of 16 studies on valerian found that valerian may help improve sleep quality without producing side effects.2

In a double-blind and placebo-controlled study of young adults, researchers found that after taking valerian extract 44% reported perfect sleep with 89% reporting improved sleep.3

Valerian can also help with falling asleep faster. In a study on adults with insomnia researchers found that valerian allowed participants to fall asleep 36% faster while increasing the time they spent in deep sleep.4

In a study on post menopausal women with sleep disturbances valerian was found to improve sleep and help alleviate insomnia.5

A few studies also indicate that children with sleep disturbances may also benefit from from valerian extract and decrease the time it takes to fall asleep, increase sleep time and quality.6,7


Valerian root helps with falling asleep, staying asleep and waking up feeling refreshed.

In addition to valerian root, there are several other nutrients and herbs which have been shown to positively affect sleep by decreasing onset, increasing duration and improving quality in scientific studies. We combined them into one simple formula called Sleep Support by Beyond Vita®.*
