Valerian root has been in use for thousands of years both in Europe and elsewhere. The famous Greek physician Hippocrates - who is credited as being the 'father of modern medicine' described many uses for Valerian.
Today, the most common use of the herb is to help people to maintain a normal quality of sleep.
Valerian can also help you to cope calmly with stress of a busy lifestyle, which is no doubt the reason why it has been in popular use since the 18th Century.
