Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) root extract is most commonly used for sleep disorders, especially insomnia. This herb inhibits the breakdown of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), a neurotransmitter that naturally produces a calming effect by regulating nerve impulses in the brain and nervous system. As such, valerian root extract is also used orally for anxiety and psychological stress.*
