Rated 1 out of 5 by rman not sure
Valerian root stinks so bad it's almost impossible to gag it down. Upsets my stomach. Don't really know if it works as expected as a sleep aid because could only take 1. So, 1 didn't put me to sleep & i would not recommend it. Sorry

Rated 4 out of 5 by Joseph7 Worked too well
This is my first time ever using Valerian root. The prescribed dosage (2 caps) was a little too strong for me. I felt very fatigued & drained the next day & thought maybe it was too much for me. However, when I took only one capsule it seemed to work better for me. I slept well & woke up feeling rested.

Taking this valerian root helps me to fall asleep and stay asleep all night. I feel refreshed and ready for my day without any sluggishness.

My husband has tried several products to help him sleep through the night, including melatonin. Valerian root seems to help him the most.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Peege It did not smell badly.
And in this case, that's NOT a good thing. Anyone who has taken better quality Valerian knows it smells plain foul and when I opened up this bottle, prepared to control my gag reflex, I was disappointed because it hardly smelled at all. Because of the success I've had with other Swanson products and the price, I ordered three bottles to use to get to sleep. I've found them to be very weak compared to the brand I switched from. They aren't nearly as sedating in the same dose. The smell of quality Valerian is truly awful but it works well enough that I can overlook it. I take the fact that Swanson's Valerian hardly has an aroma as proof of low quality herb source and maybe the use of filler. I was very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by abOK great relaxer
Purchased to help sleep. I had tried the melatonin and had bad dreams. The valerian root is working great. No side effects of bad dreams or hangover in the morning, no upset stomach from taking, just some nice relaxed hours to sleep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ccky best I've tried
Swanson's valerian root is the best I've used to help me sleep when I'm unable to go to sleep. Effective and has no bad smell.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Liz22 Works great!
I have a hard time falling asleep when I work late so I take 2 of these and within 45 minutes I am relaxed and ready for bed. I didn't want to take sleeping pills and this is the perfect alternative. If you need help unwinding and getting to sleep at night give this a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MisterMike the best one
ive been using this for years, its refreshing knowing im now putting something natural in my body to sleep, i feel better, and its better for me than not so natural stuff. swanson always seem to have the best deals on vitamins and suppliments.

I really had high hopes that this would help me sleep, especially after reading the reviews. Unfortunately it did nothing for me at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Yoyoma didn't help me sleep
I bought this product because I need help getting to sleep and it didn't help at all. I have tried Valerian before but a different brand and it helped me in the past. So I bought Swanson's brand because it is a good price but it didn't work for me. I did feel relaxed but not sleepy. I started with one at night and then took two at night and didn't notice any difference.

Valerian is a staple in our medicine cabinet. It provides a good nights sleep when needed and a calming effect when trials hit and the pressure rises.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 0423 VALERIAN ROOT & PASSIONFLOWER
This combo works wonders for me. The valerian root helped me sleep, but when I added the passionflower I slept more soundly. I take 2 of each before bedtime, read for 1/2 hour, and sleep soundly for 6-7 hours. I ordered a lot, I never want to run out of either of these! Thanks for getting me a good nights sleep!

Rated 5 out of 5 by dreamweaver Hubby swears by it
My husband takes this just about every night to help him fall asleep. For some reason, I do not tolerate Valerian root, and it has the reverse effect on me and causes me to wake up in the middle of the night. But for him, it does the job. He usually falls asleep within an hour after taking it. He can't do without it!
