Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Trouble sleeping? This product has sometimes seemed helpful, not always. My husband takes them too, I think they work better for him than for me. September 13, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by If you can use it this is the best brand and... Found this brand to be the most consistent. If you can actually overlook the herbal smell of Valerian, this brand is the best quality & glad I found Swanson - best pricing - beats Amazon by A Lot. Re: helping sleeping. Over the years I found that it does not necessarily help me fall asleep, but if I wake up in middle of the night I have a much easier time getting back to sleep. June 19, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good supplement I take Valerian with Dual-Action Melatonin each night. My sleep is usually deep and restful. I would recommend it; I consider it very beneficial. May 6, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Supplement I started taking this because other people had posted good reviews on it. It seems to fit right in with my other supplements. October 25, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by helpful Nature's Way Valerian is part of several supplements used for sleep. I appreciate the standardized version to know what amount I am getting. Take 2 capsules about 1-2 hours before sleep—or at bedtime for sleep maintenance. No side effects for me. The capsules have an odor particular to Valerian, so I keep it in a zip freezer bag after opening. The smell doesn't make a person stink however! :-) Price is good too. August 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by potent and effective I've found this to be consistently potent. I usually take two later at night to wind down. I don't really take it for sleep; I use melatonin for that. I find that this is good for slowing me down and relaxing as I catch up on the computer. Price is right too for standardized compound! March 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good quality I have found that this product is of great quality. I have previously purchased valerian at other retailers from what I believed to be a respectable company and found it didn't work. This product did what I expected and did it well. I give my son one in the morning just to slow down his very fast moving brain. He is receiving good remarks from his teacher but is not becoming tired on the one capsule. October 16, 2008
