Valerian Root for Anxiety

valerian root anxiety

Anxiety is something that affects millions of people around the world. It is associated with feelings of constant worry, frustration and nervousness. It impacts our ability to think and act clearly, but more importantly, our ability to live a fulfilling life.

Anxiety is a complex issue that manifests itself in many ways, one of which is in the body. Feelings of tightness in the muscles and nervous ticks may be associated with it as well. If you’re looking to relieve these symptoms and help combat anxiety altogether, you may want to consider trying calming teas, most of which are composed of a natural herb known as Valerian Root.

Valerian root is a popular and reputable treatment for anxiety because it has been proven time and again to be effective in past and modern studies. Historically, Valerian has been used across several continents and time periods, including ancient Greece and Rome, as well as in China and India. The ancients used this plant on a regular basis as a treatment for a variety of ailments even including mild forms of insomnia.

Why It Works

The root of the Valerian plant contains a group of acids, known as “Valerenic” acids which are said to have a sedative effect on the body. The accepted belief is that these “Valerenic” acids may have an impact on GABA, which is a neurotransmitter that functions as the mechanism for controlling certain aspects of activity in the brain.  Higher amounts of both acids in the body are able to create feelings of relaxation and lower stress levels.

How to Use It

The most effective way to consume Valerian root is through drinking tea containing Valerian. Here is the process with how to make the most effective tea:

  • Add 2 teaspoons (2 grams) of Calming tea to our tea infuser.
  • Place the infuser into a cup with 8 ounces of hot water.
  • Let the loose leaf tea sit for about 5 minutes.
  • If you like, add honey to taste.
