Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by An evening ZEN experience At the end of the day, I like to take 2 of these to calm my frazzled nerves to help me relax. Relax then turns to zen, and allows me the peace and calm I need to help me sleep. February 12, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Save your money I was very disappointed that this product did nothing for me. Not only did it not help me sleep, I felt drowsy in the morning. I threw it in the trash. Very frustrating trying to find a natural supplement to help me sleep. I work nights, and sleep days, so this has been an on going problem. Wish I could have benefitted from this sleeping aid. June 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great purchase I love this valerian. I take 2 before bedtime along with one 5-HTP and I sleep. This works for me. Plus it is very affordable. February 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by calms the nervous system This product helps to calm the nervous system. August 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stay asleep! I can finally stay asleep. While I still use Melatonin to make me sleepy, the NOW Foods Valerian Root capsules actually keep me sleeping for a longer period of time. July 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best supplement So far es the best supplement made from valerian root and I recommend to everyone July 18, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sleepy As I've moved into the menopausal stage of my life sleep has been more difficult. This product allows me to get more hours of sleep without the tossing and turning. Sometimes I get up and take more in the middle of the night. It's nice to know its all natural and has no side affects. I have experienced no drowsiness in the morning. July 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Potent I take this for a number of things, primarily sleep management, however I have found it equally as useful in dealing with pms symptoms. I take it at night. I sleep very well by its use. It allowed for quicker responses in the time it took for me to relax for sleep. I felt overall well rested the next morning and clear. June 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Valerian I have been taking valerian for many years. It helps with stress during the day without making me sleepy and it helps relax me at bedtime so I can get to sleep. March 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by For a good nights sleep Valerian root is great. I am into natural supplements. I am 50ish and do not take any doctor prescribed medication. My wife,vitamins, herbs, excersize,and meditation, are doing me just fine. Of course a good diet, and a good nights sleep are part of the package. After I shower, I take Valerian root 1 hour before bed time. I turn on some relaxing music, or read until I am falling into deep sleep. I then climb into bed and snuggle. I notice that I have vivid dreams now. I like that. November 4, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stinks like crazy!! This definitely takes the edge off so you can feel ready to go to sleep. If you can get past the smell it works. No bad taste so that is good. March 25, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Serenity now This product takes the edge off my frazzeled mind when things get too hectic. I have also found it helpful to get a better quality of sleep. October 16, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by NOW name brand quality I have been taking one, not two, nightly about 2-4 hours before bed, just to relax & be mellow. I tend to burn the candle at both ends, go go go, and this helps me unwind while doing email, reading etc. on internet. I don't take this for sleep; I take melatonin for that [and I've found less is more for me: 1/2 mg of melatonin and I'm 220 pound male]. Again I don't think this would help me for sleep if I wanted to stay asleep, but it is great for winding down. If I have to get up in just a few hours, I'll take one or two of these valerian root from NOW, knowing I won't have the hangover I can get from melatonin. I also need to mention that this bottle is over 5 years old and works fine. I got it, used it for awhile, just got away from it, probably because of the melatonin, then returned to it, trying it for relaxation instead of sleep, and that has been a super solution. So the quality is there, the ability to maintain potency with age is there, and lastly I think it smells GOOD! Smells like ground herbs or leaves to me, not like socks or other horrible terms I've read about other brands. January 28, 2011
