What it's normally used for
Valerian Root is known for reducing how long it takes to fall asleep and then it improves the quality of your sleep.
Valerian Root can be combined with other sedating herbs, like hops (Humulus lupulus) and lemon balm (Melissa officianalis), to treat insomnia.
It can also help you lower blood pressure, and improve your heart health. The same active components that make valerian root so effective for stress and anxiety management can also help your body properly regulate blood pressure.
What it does for Lucid Dreaming
Valerian Root is known for generating vivid dreams and helping you remember dreams.
My own results
I take Valerian Root after six hours of sleep and I remember more of the dream, where it seems like it's a longer dream.
