Valerian root has been used around the world as a gentle way to promote relaxation and sleep. Herb Pharm’s valerian supplement is the real deal, extracted from the certified-organic fresh rhizome and root of the Valeriana officinalis plant. When added to your favorite beverage (or blended into your morning smoothie as I do!) valerian can become a reliable part of your daily anxiety-reduction self-care routine.
If you’ve not yet tried it, valerian root has a *very* strong herbal aroma and flavor described as bitter, sharp, and aromatic. Personally, I find it as pleasant as our cats do (yes, cats lose their minds over valerian root — a drop or two on a favorite cat toy sends them to their happy place). But it if you’re generally not used to a broad variety of flavors, it can take some getting used to.
Unlike a tea formulated with valerian, this is pure extract for you to add to whatever you like. Depending on your choice of beverage, the flavor may provide a top note or integrate completely.
