Sleep is a key component of life. According to Statistics Canada, approximately one third of our lives are spent sleeping. When we’re not getting enough, our health and happiness can be affected – in fact, lack of sleep is associated with increased risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity, and depression. Looking for a way to get a better, deeper sleep? Valerian is traditionally used in herbal medicine as a sleep aid, valued for its calmative and sedative qualities. Flora Valerian is an all-natural, time-tested remedy that brings the extract of this root to you in convenient vegetarian capsules.
As a sleep aid: Take 1 capsule, 30 to 60 minutes before bedtime. Take an earlier dose (1 capsule) during the evening if necessary.
CAUTIONS: Store at room temperature. Keep out of reach of children. Consult a health care practitioner if sleeplessness persists continuously for more than 3 weeks (chronic insomnia), or if symptoms persist or worsen. Consumption with alcohol, other medications or natural health products with sedative properties is not recommended. Some people may experience drowsiness. Exercise caution if operating heavy machinery, driving a motor vehicle or involved in activities requiring mental alertness within 2 hours of consumption.
