Common name: Valerian
Botanical name: Valeriana officinalis.
Valerian root has been used medicinally for over 2,000 years, as early as 40 A.D. by the Greek. It’s been known to have a calming effect without exerting too much of a sedative effect. It may help you fall asleep faster and better if taken before bedtime. It does not impair driving ability and produces no morning hangover effect, thus giving you a gentle relaxant and an effective sleep aid. Valerian is great for relaxation, stress support and getting a night of deep sleep.
The roots have a pungent odor, like dirty socks. You’ll definitely want to mask the order when consuming the powder. Blend it with bananas and some almond milk for a wonderful tasting mind-relaxing drink.
