Valerian seems to be most effective after you take it regularly for two or more weeks. It may take a few weeks before the effects of valerian root supplementation are felt. For insomnia, it may be taken one to two hours before bedtime or up to three times in the course of the day, with the last dose near bedtime.
A tincture is a concentrated liquid form of an herb. Tinctures preserve and concentrate the properties of the herb, which makes the effects of the herb stronger and longer lasting. Our alcohol based tinctures have a shelf life of several years and can be consumed in water or under the tongue.
Valerian can cause some side effects such as headache, stomach upset, mental dullness, excitability, uneasiness, heart disturbances, and even insomnia in some people.
