Johanna: a few months ago

Great product. Taking two capsules daily, as I know from experience that natural remedies work best if taken consistently. For occasional relief when feeling especially anxious, I increase the dosage as I deem fit.

Peter: more than a year ago

Great. Working well as expected (and just one capsule is usually enough).

I ordered this primarily for axniety and sleep. Obviously, this will not work as well as prescription options, but it is non-addicting and natural. And when taking the maximum dose (6 capsules) for anxiety or sleep I found it did have a sedating effect, which surprised me because I usually have no luck with natural supplements. I would definitely recommend trying.

I bought this because the Jamieson valerian was out of stock. A study summarized in Nutrition Action Healthletter reported that valerian had no significant effect on sleep for a group of women. Sleep quality was no better, & the valerian-takers were awake longer than the placebo-takers. My experience with this product was similar. The recommended dose is "4 capsules 1-3 times daily". This seems excessive -- unless you really want to sleep all day. A couple will help me get to sleep a little sooner, but I don't think the quality of sleep is that good. Also, while I don't feel hung over next morning, I find that after taking this product I tend to wake up too early & then can't get back to sleep, so I'm actually losing some sleep time. A minor side effect is dry mouth. The pills are large & don't go down too well; it takes a lot of water & I can feel them in my throat -- then more water!
Not a huge fan of the product. The rating function is not working, but I'd give it 3 stars.

NOW is a superior product. I have CFS and without valerian every night I have nothing but disjointed nightmare filled 'sleep'. With it, dreaming is reasonable and I get to a deeper level of sleep.
