Tip of the Day

Several studies suggest that valerian can reduce the amount of time it takes to fall asleep and can improve sleep quality. In one study, participants were given an over-the-counter supplement of valerian mixed with other ingredients, valerian alone, or a placebo. Those taking valerian alone fell asleep more quickly and woke up during the night less often than those taking either placebo or the combination. In addition, valerian was most effective for those who had the greatest sleep problems.
