Valerian Root (Standardized)
I have been taking valerian root extract for years as a sleep aid. I switched to Swanson's brand as I trust them and this product works fine for me.

This valerian was no better than the kind I can buy in Walmart, in fact, the kind in Walmart works better, won't be purchasing this herb again.

Will Buy Again and Again
I take 2 caps of Valerian Root and 2 tabs of Melatonin about a half hour before bedtime and within 10 minutes after I lay down, I'm sound asleep. No morning "hangover" . I wake up fresh and relaxed. No side effects. Swanson's is a better quality than other brands I've tried and is a better price.

A great product
Works well for me, used it for over a year, it is a very high quality extract.

If I take this intermittently, it seems to work better for me than taking it every night. My body seems to get used to it and is not as effective. However, when I do use it, it helps me fall asleep better or to go back to sleep.

This is very good at providing relaxation and promoting good sleep even if I wake up in the middle of the night. I had difficulty falling back to sleep prior to using valerian root.

I regularly purchase this one
I combine Valerian with Melatonin to relax me before bedtime. I definitely sleep better and more deeply as a result without any grogginess the next day.

I really like this extract. Its calming and helps with sleep. But it also is helpful during the day to help calm down nerves without making you to sleepy.

I use this nightly
I use this in combination with other supplements to support sleep. It helps me relax before bed, but does not put me to sleep.

I also take this with Melatonin when I need to get a good nights sleep and it seems to be a good combination which helps put you in a relaxed state so you can sleep well. I have also tried it on it's own and it has a similar effect.

This is my herb of choice for sleep. I like to take three caps with a melatonin for a good night sleep.
Swanson's Valerian Root is very fresh, effective and affordable.

Swanson Superior Herbs Valerian Root
This product did absolutely nothing for me. I was very disappointed and spent many sleepless nights while trying it. I'm going back to melatonin.
December 23, 2010
I started taking at the recommendation of my Dr to help sleep at night. Directions say to take 30 minutes before bed, but sometimes I do not take until I'm on my way to bed and I have a restful sleep without any groggy side effects in the morning. I truly appreciate Swanson's quality supplements at affordable prices.

Only buy this one...it's standardized, affordable, and works very well. It's especially useful if you don't take it every night.
It's a great, safe product. I take it with Calcium for even better results. I prefer it to Sleep Essentials...which I no longer buy.

Take with Hops
I read a study where Valerian Root and Hops together switches off the effects of Caffeine in the brain. I am sleeping much better since taking this combo. What a price too!

Swanson's Valerian Root is a great aid when I have trouble falling asleep.

While many folks only take valerian at bedtime, I take it morning and evening. I feel I have a much calmer and patient mood throughout my day. I don't suffer any unpleasant side effects and don't feel over sedated. In the evening my wife and I both take it. We have had more sound nights sleep.
