This plant is native to Europe but was readily cultivated in North America in the early 19th century. Every eclectic medical text consulted listed this plant as a “cerebral stimulant” when used as a simple or single herb administration. The preparation of the fluid extract from the rhizome was official in the United States Pharmacopeia from 1820-1936 and in the National Formulary from 1888-1946. It is still used to promote healthy sleep in many European Countries, North America, and The Soviet Union and is included in the World Health Organizations monographs on herbs as well as the German Comission E Monographs.
What Is Valerian Used For?
There have been numerous human clinical trials conducted on Valerian and many have shown positive results to support a normal restful nights sleep. It is sold as an over the counter medicine in many European countries. More research is needed to determine the exact mechanism of Valerian's therapeutic effects.
