iHerb Customer Reviews
Great Herb from a good outfit
I like the Organic cut and sifted valerian from Frontier. Valerian is a great nervine herb that can be used for relaxation, nervousness, anxiety and aid in sleep. It helps boost GABA which is a calming neurotransmitter. Gaba is very hard to absorb directly from a pill or capsule. I like to grind this herb up a bit more than it arrives so that I can get a stronger infusion with tea or tincture. Steep overnight for a very strong infusion. It is good to bend with other herbal teas as well for better flavor. Don't overgrind or it may be too hard to filter. I like the packaging it comes it as it protects it form moisture and light. Keep your tea out of light at that can degrade it over time. Notice how many health food stores keep their bulk herbs in clear containers which allows light to enter. Not good for shelf life. Make every effort to use Organic or you may be getting all kinds of pesticides in your product. I know USDA organic is not 100% organic. They do water down the requirement a bit. But it is still much better than non-organic. So I give Frontier credit for making this hurdle. However for this reason I am only giving it 4 stars. Certified Organic from NY or Oregon is a cleaner product. If you found this review helpful, kindly click the YES button. Also, go to my iHerb home page by clicking on my Handle name above.

a nice sleep aid

Posted by Reviewer2796695 on Jun 28, 2016

I find that a cup of this before going to bed helps me drift off to a restful sleep. Being organic is an extra benefit, I will continue to buy this. I have used this for a couple of years and am very satisfied with the product.

Best Herb for Helping me, I've ever Found!!!

Posted by 5495370954383379798 on Aug 16, 2015

Valerian is a Stinky, Horrible-Tasting Herbal Tea, but a Blessing From Universal Mind. Just a tad of it, before Bedtime, and You'll never need Sleep-Aiding pharmaceuticals, (a Warm Shower just before Bed, also Helps, because it then releases Melatonin, which is a Naturally Body-released, Sleep-Inducing Hormone). I used to suffer terribly, from Sleep Deprivation, Poor Sleep, Sleep Apnea, Hypoxia, etc., had gone throhgh 4 different Sleep Studies, spanning 17 years. Valerian and Dandelion combined, are all the Sleep inducing Tea I've ever needed, in order to Increase my Sleep, including Delta Phase, which I was never getting. Again, This is a Superb Herb, with Excellent Active Components. Taking it, enabled me to say "Goodbye," and "Good Riddance" to a great many Pharmaceuticals. NOTE: NEVER START OR STOP TAKING ANYTHING--INCLUDING HERBS W/O FIRST SPEAKING W/ YOUR DOCTOR. This is Absolutely Necessary. Sleep Well my Friends!
