Try This! | Valerian Root for Better Sleep


Nothing positions you better to be most effective every day than a good night’s sleep. If insomnia is impacting you in midlife, you may want to try valerian root. When 400-900 mg valerian root extract are taken before bedtime, it may reduce the amount of time it takes you to fall asleep and improve your sleep quality. As with many supplements, it can take 2-4 weeks to see an effect. Because it can increase the impact of other sleep aids or other medications, always check with your doctor or health care provider before starting a new supplement. 

Sweet dreams!
