Description

Jacob Teitelbaum, M.D., author of the bestselling book, From Fatigued to Fantastic. In his book he recommends lemon balm’s ability to enhance sleep; his own studies showed that valerian supplement and lemon balm help induce deep sleep. Teitelbaum reports that some of his patients rely solely on valerian and lemon balm to ensure a good night’s sleep. In addition to its sleep-enhancing benefits, Dr. Teitelbaum recommends the valerian supplement for its adaptogenic properties, meaning it adapts to what the body needs. He writes, “Valerian is a mild sleep aid that has the interesting effect of calming people when they are anxious while at the same time acting as a stimulant when people are fatigued.” One study using Valerian for anxiety found that 100mg three times per day was more effective than placebo.

Slip into Slumber

Countless studies, in this country and in Europe confirm the effectiveness of a Valerian supplement for enhancing sleep quality. Equally important, there have been no major side-effects associated with the use of Valerian. In one study, sleep scores improved dramatically for those taking Valerian, the biggest improvements seen in those who considered themselves poor or irregular sleepers. The study also looked at young, healthy sleepers who took valerian, and the results showed they experienced an easier and quicker descent into sleep.

Lemon Balm

You’ve probably heard of, or even taken valerian supplement for sleep, but what makes lemon balm such an important addition? Lemon balm has been used for centuries to nutritionally promote sleep and ease nervousness. The herb also has other properties, including nutritional support of the nervous system and digestive systems. The addition of lemon balm to a base of valerian makes a versatile combination; one that can be taken at night for sleep and in lighter doses during the day for relaxation and mood and muscle comfort.
