A natural choice for promoting sleep and relaxation, Valerian Root with Lemon Balm supports a restful nights sleep without the fear of over sedation. Valerian helps induce deep sleep, and Lemon Balm promotes a calm and collective nervous system. This gentle and effective combination formula is recommended by Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum.
Jacob Teitelbaum, M.D., author of the bestselling book, From Fatigued to Fantastic. In his book he recommends lemon balms ability to enhance sleep; his own studies showed that valerian and lemon balm help induce deep sleep. Teitelbaum reports that some of his patients rely solely on valerian and lemon balm to ensure a good nights sleep.
Slip into Slumber
Countless studies, in this country and in Europe confirm the effectiveness of Valerian for enhancing sleep quality. Equally important, there have been no major side-effects associated with the use of Valerian. In one study, sleep scores improved dramatically for those taking Valerian, the biggest improvements seen in those who considered themselves poor or irregular sleepers. The study also looked at young, healthy sleepers who took valerian, and the results showed they experienced an easier and quicker descent into sleep.
Youve probably heard of, or even taken valerian, but what makes lemon balm such an important addition? Lemon balm has been used for centuries to nutritionally promote sleep and ease nervousness. The herb also has other properties, including nutritional support of the nervous system and digestive systems. The addition of lemon balm to a base of valerian makes a versatile combination; one that can be taken at night for sleep and in lighter doses during the day for relaxation and mood and muscle comfort.
Just as important as restful sleep is restful rest - the time spent during the day that allows your body to rejuvenate and recuperate. For many, rest time is spent feeling nervous or restless - anything but restorative. Valerian and lemon balm is safe enough to take during the day, without feeling drowsy or unable to function. It simply ensures that the time spent in rest, a vital component of healing, allows the body to do just that - rest.
Ease Stress and Promote Muscle Comfort
Another common daytime use for valerian and lemon balm is to soften feelings of stress. Dr. Andrew Weil recommends lower doses of valerian for daytime calming. Valerian has also been extensively studied for its effect on smooth muscle tissue, indicating its muscle relaxant qualities.
Is it safe?
The safety of valerian and lemon balm is its hallmark. In study after study it has found to exert powerful relief without negative effects. One study published in a German medical journal found that no participants suffered from residual hangover after taking valerian. In fact, most participants felt more active and alert the next day.
