This is a powerful herb, so you shouldn’t use it for more than three weeks at a time. You should explore new options if the problems isn’t fixed by then.

If you have a weak stomach it’s recommended that you sip every 15 minutes or so, until your stomach can take it.

You can add honey and other natural, organic substances to improve the taste for small children.

5 Comments Valerian Root Dosage For Sleep

    Hi! I really enjoyed your post about Valerian uses. I know that studies reflect that valerian does help with insomnia and lack of sleep. I also agree with the fact that it does give a better quality sleep as well, I think it has something to do with making you fall asleep faster. I had no clue about its uses for anxiety, for example, which is very interesting.

    1. Dylan

      Most herbs have more than one use. Valerian helps with anxiety because it is so soothing and calming to the nerves.

    Hi Dylan,
    I never heard of this herb for curing insomnia before now. I myself do not suffer from sleep deprivation, I have the odd time but usually did not last more than 1 or 2 nights, and for some those nights I may have had more sleep than they did over a weeks time. My wife on the other hand, does suffer from this on a regular basis, and I will certainly mention this to her. I took a look at the Bulk Herb Store but all the information was for the US only. Do you know if they ship to Canada or any other country? Curious if there would be any issues with crossing the border with these herbs.
    Thank you for the great information. Stay healthy!

      They do ship to Canada and if you click shipping rates it goes into more detail about it. You may have to pay a small fee, it depends what Canadian govement says about.
