Rated 5 out of 5 by works gr8 this sure help me to sleep and relax along with my melotonin March 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly recomend It works just likes it supposed to. February 21, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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 January 7, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. December 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better sleep 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. November 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Valerian Root If you want to relax and have a good night's sleep, take this. Works for me. 'nuff said. October 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Helps with sleep My husband has tried several products to help him sleep through the night, including melatonin. Valerian root seems to help him the most. November 13, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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. October 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by works great i bought these for my husband who has some trouble staying asleep, he takes these with Swanson Sleep Essentials and they really help him feel rested in the morning September 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. September 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent sleep aid I take this every night about an hour before bed and it really helps me fall a sleep. September 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product I bought it for my husband to helping to sleep and so far it is working with 5htp and triptophan. August 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by sleep well very nice when its hard to sleep. and even if its not August 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. July 3, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. June 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. June 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by great product Have used this for years. It's been very effective, low cost, and I wake up refreshed and energetic. June 2, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Did nothing for me. I really had high hopes that this would help me sleep, especially after reading the reviews. Unfortunately it did nothing for me at all. May 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Valerian Root I take one pill at night to help me to sleep and feel relax the next day. Very good product and price. May 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Valerian Root Tea I recomend this product to all my friends who cannot sleep. Priced right. I only take it when I absolutly cannot fall asleep. Try it on a weekend. I take it and fall asleep within 15 minuetes. Love it! May 22, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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. May 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great! I love this stuff, just wish I didn't need to take it to sleep. May 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by it works 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. May 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! May 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! April 26, 2013
