Product Features

Gaia Herbs Valerian Poppy Supreme is an herbal blend containing several herbs known for their calming and sedative effects, including: Valerian, Chamomile, Kava Kava and Skullcap.

The Valerian root is used for its medicinal benefits for thousands of years. Traditionally, it was prescribed for sleep disorders, nervous system problems, headaches, and arthritis. Today, Valerian is commonly used to alleviate symptoms of insomnia and to treat various anxiety disorders, including stress symptoms.
There is a large amount of research available on Valerian; however the exact mechanism of action sis not completely understood. It appears that Valerian acts on the synthesis and metabolism of the chief inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA, which in fact leads to calming the nervous system and the brain. Potential benefits of Valerian for which the plant was or still is scientifically investigated includes ADHD, post-traumatic stress disorder, panic attacks, PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome) or obsessive compulsive disorder). Side effects include nausea, drowsiness, dizziness or headache.

Kava Kava is a controversial herb which possesses strong medicinal properties but may also have intoxicating effects. It is believed to help relieve anxiety symptoms such as irritability and muscle tension and to help promote overall emotional well being. Several European countries approved it as a treatment for generalized anxiety disorder. Other uses include rheumatism, gout, or incontinence. Serious health concerns exist regarding mouth use of Kava Kava. Serious liver damage has been reported even with short term use.

The manufacturer of Gaia Herbs Valerian Poppy Supreme warns against the use of the formula for certain categories of people, including those with liver problems, pregnant women, etc. Side effects include nausea, vomiting, stomach or abdominal pain, light colored stools, tiredness, weakness, and loss of appetite. For optimum results, you should use 40 to 60 drops taken every 20 minutes beginning 1 hour before bedtime in maximum 3 such servings a day.

    Initially I thought we were calling the doctor but I think I used too much water and it just made me nauseated. That resolved quickly. I am already feeling more relaxed so hoping this resolves my being up all night. Mone DOES contain 50 to 60% grain alcohol so you might check that ingredient. Definitely more calm now.
