Valerian root is probably best known as a remedy for insomnia. Despite its popularity among consumers, there is little evidence that it can promote sleep or improve the quality of sleep.1


Valerian root is touted by some as a safe replacement of prescription anxiety drugs, with an emphasis on those like Valium (diazepam), Xanax (alprazolam), Klonopin (clonazepam), and Ativan (lorazepam) that act on GABA receptors.

There is some evidence to support this. 3  Valerenic acid appears to act on receptors in a way that enhances GABA transmission but without the pronounced sedative effects of a drug like Valium. This may benefit people on treatment for anxiety and other mood disorders.

2015 review from Harvard Medical School concluded that valerian was the “most promising candidate” for treatment of anxiety associated with bipolar disorder.

Hot Flashes

Valerian root may be useful in decreasig hot flashes commonly affecting women during menopause.

The exact mechanism of action is unknown since valerian doesn’t appear to directly influence hormone levels.4

2013 study with 68 women in menopause reported that valerian , 450-milligram daily doses for eight weeks, reduced the severity and frequency of hot flashes compared to a placebo.
