Valerian Root
#1
Has anyone used this with any success for a sleep aid, or is it supplement BS?

I personally have found it to be ineffective. Plus the smell is awful! Maybe others have had some success. It's relatively cheap, so it may be worth a try for you. Your body chemistry might align with it.

May be you can do a combo, like I told, Valerian root is really too week. Like SlickBuddha told, if you combine different naturals, it may work.

For what I understand, Valerina root contain GABA. And, for what I know, it don't pass the blood barrier, so most probably will not work. it didn't for me. If you want to go the supplement way, there are good things to do a combo, like Theanine + 5-htp + Aswhaganda .

Valerian Root comes in different strengths. Just like kava has Kavalactones, Most Valerian on the market does not pass most safety tests. 25% of Valerian Herbal Sleep Supplements Pass Tests For Quality
from a site called ConsumerLab.com, a leading provider of consumer information and independent evaluations of natural medications (herbs, vitamins and supplements). Best ones that pasted the test of not having lead and other bad things are the ones below.
A. Vogel (Bioforce),
Bluebonnet,
CVS,
Douglas Laboratories,
Genestra (Seroyal),
Mason,
Nature’s Answer,
Shaklee,
Solaray, and
Solgar.

Hopefully that helps you research before you buy.
