Frequently Asked Questions

Valerian root is a herb that is native to Europe and parts of Asia, known for its sedative qualities. It is a large plant that can grow up to six feet tall, with small pink flowers and a strong odour. You’re most likely to find valerian root in herbal sleep supplements from brands like Nytol and Kalms.

Valerian root is most commonly known for its ability to help you fall asleep and stay asleep, particularly for those with sleep problems like insomnia. Valerian root is specifically thought to help people fall asleep faster, improve sleep quality and help you spend more time in a deep sleep. Valerian root has also been thought to help those suffering with anxiety, however research is limited.

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. Valerian root can cause side effects like headaches and drowsiness, but these are typically mild.

Research suggests that the best dose of valerian root for sleep is 300-600mg, 30 minutes to 2 hours before you go to bed. For anxiety, the recommended dosage of valerian root is typically lower to help prevent daytime sleepiness - we recommend you speak to your pharmacist for tailored advice.

Valerian root is not known to cause weight gain, however, you may experience some mild side effects. These include drowsiness, dizziness, stomach problems, vivid dreams, brain fog and headaches. If you take valerian root for a long time, you may experience withdrawal symptoms.
