Frequently Asked Questions

What is valerian root?

Valerian root is a herb that is native to Europe and parts of Asia, known for its sedative qualities.

Is valerian root safe?

Studies have found valerian root to be a safe sleep supplement. Valerian root is an ideal drug-free solution for those with sleep problems like insomnia who don’t want to use over-the-counter or prescription-strength medicines that can be addictive and cause a wide range of side effects.
