Although it is not tasty at all, I add a piece of this Valerian Root to my routine daily to help reduce nerve pain and keep me calm. I had taken tincture of Valerian Root before years ago but wanted to try a different form and this is working so far with doing a pinch daily. This bag will last a year I would think unless I can figure out how to get past the taste and add more to my daily routine.
As far as valerian root goes, this is good. However, he warned that this stinks to high heavens. I tried to use it for a while but could not stand the smell. It actually smells through a sealed bag. It does help a bit with falling asleep when you drink it as a tea but you have to take a lot for that to work and you have to be consistent with it. Also, make sure you don't take it if you're pregnant. The size of this is massive, I had to give a lot away. If you like this review please give it a 👍🏻, thanks! 😊🙏🏻
The bag is really big as you don't need a lot of leaves to make a cup! Making tea from loose is so easy really, you don't even need a teaball, just a strainer. The taste is relatively mild, but I combine this with mint and chamomile for a great alternative to a certain brand of "sleepytime" tea. It's so much more economical to make your own and skip a wasteful teabag. I plan to make up little mason jars and give to friends and family for Christmas ;) Frontier has so many teas out there to try and the quality of the ones I've tried has been excellent! A word of caution, valerian shouldn't be used with certain medications so if you make it for yourself, or give it as a gift, state that there there may be contraindications and they need to do their research.
Not known to many but this herb, Valerian, is use to those who are experiencing stress, insomnia, physical ang mental fatigues. It has a very good quality which I mean fresh from the local farms and its taste is really good and caffeine-free tea. In medical herbalism, this kind of herb is categorized under "Nervines", which simply means relaxant. So, that's the effect that you will experience when you take this herb. Always consult to your Naturopath or Herbalist for guidance.
I've bought both the organic valerian root from Frontier and this regular one and would recommend both. I think the price difference with the organic variety is not a deal breaker if you are looking for more organic labels. I use for tea and don't break up the pieces at all, though that might be another way to make the product go further (like with a mortar and pestle). I think the tea does help to enhance sleep quality.
