Valerian, also commonly called garden heliotrope, is found throughout Europe, Asia and North America. For centuries it has been prized for its soothing qualities. Valerian gained in popularity in the 17th century and was commonly used for insomnia and to help relieve stress-related anxiety and nervous restlessness.

Research has confirmed that these applications are more than just superstition. In 2003, scientists discovered that the sedative and sleep enhancing properties of valerian were related to two flavonoids: 6-methylapigenin and Hesperidin. Valerian acts as a natural tranquilizer and may help soothe anxiety, nervous tension, insomnia and headaches.

Studies have shown that valerian can reduce the amount of time it takes to fall asleep and it helps improve the quality of sleep. An added benefit is that valerian does not have the side effects such as drowsiness the next day.
