Valdrian® is a traditional herbal medicinal product for the temporary relief of symptoms of mild anxiety and to aid sleep, based on traditional use only.
Historically, valerian has been used to reduce anxiety, over excitability and help correct sleep disturbance due to restlessness.
Clinical research has documented the beneficial effects on sleep latency, frequency of waking, tension and quality of sleep. Registration of VALDRIAN has been granted based upon valerian's long standing use for mild anxiety and to aid sleep.
The treatment of non-organic sleep disturbances with synthetic hypnotics/sedatives like benzodiazepines and barbiturates is associated with undesirable effects like adaptation and, dependency, hang-over effects, and increased sleep apnoea or anterograde amnesia. It induces also undesired changes of sleep patterns. Antihistamines (e.g. promethazine) may cause palpitations, a dry mouth and other disturbing undesirable effects. There is obviously a need for better tolerated alternatives to synthetic sedatives to prevent the manifestation of chronic insomnia. A considerable number of trials underline that Valerian Root is such an alternative medication that does not exhibit typical undesirable effects observed with conventional treatment of sleep and mood disorders.
