Must Know Benefis of Valeriana officinalis for a Healthier You.
Valeriana officinalis also simply known as valerian has numerous properties that have made the herb a very popular remedy in traditional forms of medicine. You would have heard about this herb being a sleeping aid but there is so much more to this plant than just making you feel drowsy.
So, read on to know, how else valerian can be of use to you?
What Medicinal Properties Does Valerian Possess?
Valerian is already very popular as a sedative. It is said to enhance the signaling of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) – one of the main sedative neurotransmitters and relax the central nervous system. Therefore, people who find it difficult to sleep due to hyperexcitability, nervousness, etc. have reported to benefit from the calming effects of valerian.
Traditional medicines such as Ayurveda have a long history of using this herb as a tranquilizer. People suffering from stress, exhaustion, restlessness, and panic attacks have routinely been put on valerian because the herb appears to have innate anti-anxiety properties.
This herb also possesses components that not only appear to relax stressed nerves but also exhibit a calming effect on the smooth muscles. Its antispasmolytic properties potentially work to relax abdominal cramps and uterine contractions, which is why you’ll find it being recommended for menstrual discomfort, digestive issues and other spasms affecting the muscle groups.
Because it has muscle relaxing properties, it is also said to alleviate pain and you’ll often find valerian as an important ingredient in many traditional formulations for a headache, migraines, joint and nerve pain, etc.
Biogetica, an ardent disciple of natural remedies has over the past 15 years, studied, researched and formulated several natural protocols that aim to repair, rejuvenate and restore imbalances in the body, which gradually manifest as disorders.
We’ve added valerian in several of our protocols dealing with sleep loss, stress, immunity, etc after meticulous research by our panel of doctors. Our multidisciplinary kits are formulated to imbue the best of what the earth has to offer.

To make full use of these versatile properties, doctors at Biogetica have infused valerian in its stress relieving, anxiolytic, and male performance anxiety protocols.
