    I have been using Valerian for over 2 years now. I researched natural muscle relaxants, and Valerian is the first and only one I have tried. I am a nurse and hold all of my stress in my upper back and neck. I have a burning sensation between my right scapula and spine that comes on when I have been working on the computer, driving, or am stressed out at work. I take two to three Valerian and the burning sensation is relieved to my satisfaction, and my neck does not feel so stiff. Valerian does not alter my alertness, and I don't feel sleepy after taking it. I don't have any anxiety issues, so I can't give a comment on how well it would calm anxiety in a person. As for the smell...it does smell a bit like manure to me...but the effects I get from it are worth dealing with the smell! The smell is gone after I take the pill, so no big deal, and I have never had a problem with Valerian causing me to repeat. I would highly recommend Valerian Root for anyone with stiff or tense muscles!

    I haven't been able to sleep for weeks now and someone recommended valerian root. I took 3 pills an hour before going to bed and 1 more before getting into bed and abolutely nothing! Not even a bit of drowiness. May work for some but didn't work for me. Will continue to have sleepness nights.

    Valerian will not "knock you out". It gives a more restful, deeper sleep. If you need help FALLING asleep, I recommend taking melatonin along with the valerian. That way you can get help to fall asleep AND have a better sleep. The combination is key.

        This product may work, but it really smells bad so I have not taken it like I thought I would. I tried it for 3 days but I just could not get past the smell. So I put it aside.

            This product is very good for assisting with going to sleep and maintaining a restful sleep after a long stressful day, and it is a safe alternative to so many dangerous prescription products. Can cause a bit of dry mouth, but hardly noticeable after a good night's sleep!!! Thanks for a great product once again.

              I have a 10 yr old son with ADHD and has terrible sleep issues. We have been using valarian for 2 years now and it helps calm him down as well as helps him sleep. Great alternative to sleeping pills (as prescribed by the doctor)

                                      Most herbal supplements have only very subtle effects, but I have found valerian root to be unmistakeably effective for relaxing your jangled nerves.

                                          Despite the poor rating and grammatically egregious reviewer of Feb. 25th, Valerian is a wonderful alternative to OTC sleep aids such as Tylenol PM. Have been using it for quite some time when needed and it works without the morning sluggishness of OTC sleep aid. Would highly recommend this for the occasional insomniac.

                                          My wife bought some of this stuff and we just couldn't take it without gaging. It smells like swetty feet that haven't been washed in over a week.

                                          It is smelly but it works. My mom bought Valerian root tea I couldnt imagine drinking that, would be like putting a used sweat sock in your coffee maker. Yum, yum, it does calm it also can wind you up as well. I recommend using it even if smelly.

                                          Valerian works very well as an antispasmodic.

                                          what does the Valerian Root do?
                                          A Vitamin Shoppe customer on May 23, 2014
                                          Best Answer: Valerian root is a natural muscle relaxer, so is good for achy muscles and minor inflammation. It also relaxes and makes you sleepy (as do many muscle relaxers) so ideally is consumed at night. Even without the need for a muscle relaxer it's a great sleepy time supplement.
