Valerian root, from the Valerian herb (scientific name Valeriana officinalis), is a favorite among experts to overcome insomnia and sleeplessness, mainly because of its numerous other health benefits. Aside from acting as a sedative, the Valerian root or rhizome also improves blood circulation, reduces mucus from colds, and helps stem anxiety, fatigue, high blood pressure, irritable bowel syndrome, menstrual and muscle cramps, nervousness, pain, spasms, and ulcers—conditions which, if otherwise unchecked, could by themselves cause sleeplessness.
The Valerian herb is native to Europe and Asia, but now can be found all around the world. Traditionally, the root has been used to treat varied conditions—from headaches to insomnia, to digestive disorders and urinary tract infections, and even angina. The root is believed to contain the herb’s active ingredient called valerenic acid.
Studies of Valerian Root use among adults have shown that the herb helps reduce the time it takes to fall asleep, and even improves the quality of sleep. A 2007 study conducted at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia showed that almost 6 percent of the more than 31,000 people surveyed said they used Valerian Root supplements to help them overcome insomnia.
Within reasonable dosages (meaning not more than 600 mg per day), side effects of the Valerian Root are rare, and these may include headache, gastrointestinal distress, or dizziness.
Sleepasil, an herbal sleep supplement manufactured by Boscogen Inc and exclusively distributed in the Philippines by Organica, contains all these four key ingredients to help you sleep soundly, just as nature intended you to do.
Sleepasil is well within the safe recommended dosages of each active ingredient.
However, should you still suffer from inadequate amounts of sleep after three weeks of regularly taking Sleepasil, then you should consult a health professional.
