Valerian is a well-known plant that is used for the treatment of nervous disorders. The most characteristic components of valerian are obtained from its roots: valepotriates and valerenic acids. These acids have a unique, penetrating, and unpleasant odor reminiscent of foot perspiration.

There is evidence that associates the use of valerian to circumstances that lead people to a state of imbalance in the most diverse activities, such as: 
1) A hectic daily life that does not allow you to sleep well.
2) Conduct disorders with manifestations of anguish, inner tension and irritability.
3) Before exams and crises at work.
4) Nervousness and restlessness caused by the environment where people live in.
There are studies that indicate that valerian shows a relaxation of the entire CNS (Central Nervous System) and vegetative system.

Valerian is a well-known plant used for the treatment of nervous disorders. There is evidence associating the use of valerian for circumstances that lead people to a state of imbalance in the most diverse activities, such as a hectic daily life with experiences that do not allow people to fall asleep, behavioral disorders with manifestations of anguish, and inner tension and irritability prior to exams and work crises. 




Many people experience temporary insomnia in their lives, but when insomnia becomes chronic it requires medical attention. There are healthy habits before going to sleep that can improve this situation, such as not watching TV or social networks in bed, not consuming caffeine or stimulants, nor alcohol and cigarettes before going to sleep.

I sleep too little

The amount of sleep varies from person to person and age to age. An adult should sleep between 7 and 8 hours a day. Sleeping fewer hours can contribute to an increased risk of hypertension and cardiovascular disease, among others.

Interrupted sleep

Sleep interruptions are often detrimental to our health. Proper sleep is necessary to be healthy. Early medical consultation and good pre-sleep habits will help you.

I sleep too much

Oversleeping can cause light, inconsistent and unrefreshing sleep, which is not what our body needs. Prolonged sleep can affect concentration and proper brain activity in your daily routine.

Daily sleepiness

Excessive daytime sleepiness can be a sign of a sleep disorder. Anxiety, stress and boredom may contribute to this feeling, which should be a reason for a medical consultation.
