Valerian Root Supplement

This is what the Valerian Root looks like

If you have trouble falling asleep at night, another way to help yourself is to take this natural herbal sleep aid. An attractive alternative to prescription sleep medication, studies have shown statistically significant subjective improvement in time required to fall asleep (more or less difficult than usual), sleep quality (better or worse than usual), and number of nighttime awakenings (more or less than usual). This result was more pronounced in a subgroup of 61 participants who identified themselves as poor sleepers on a questionnaire administered at the beginning of the study.
