Valeriana officinalis is a hardy flowering plant that can survive for many years. While it will die in the autumn and winter months, the plant will return the next year and grow up from its rootstock once the spring season arrives. This plant has heads of sweetly-scented pink and white flowers that can grow to a height of five feet.
Valeriana is native to parts of Asia and Europe but has been introduced into North American vegetation throughout the centuries. Other names for this plant are valerian, garden valerian, garden heliotrope, setwall, and all-heal. You may come across a red flowering plant in gardens called red valerian, and although it is from the same family, it is an entirely different species and is not related to the pink and white valerian plants.
Valeriana root has many beneficial medicinal and health-based uses. Its main use is as a dietary supplement that promotes relaxation to relieve both insomnia and anxiety. Scientific research has been directed at the link between valeriana constituents and their interactions with the GABA receptors.
The GABA receptors are a class of receptors that respond to the GABA neurotransmitters which are the chief inhibitory compound in the central nervous system. It is believed that this is how valeriana can help to alleviate nervous system disorders such as anxiety and insomnia.
The passion flower, also known as Passiflora or passion vines, is a herbaceous genus consisting of over 500 flowering plants of the Passifloraceae family. Though Passiflora can be found distributed throughout all tropical geographical areas, most of them will be found concentrated in both North and South America, Asia, and New Guinea. They are a very adaptable plant and have been found growing in areas where they never used to exist such as Spain.
Out of the over 500 flowering species of Passiflora, only a fraction of them provides medicinal benefits for humans. The species of Passiflora with the most acclaimed health benefits is the Passiflora incarnata. It is a wildflower found in the southern United States. This species of Passiflora can help treat the symptoms of menopause by increasing GABA levels. helping to lower blood pressure, and can help to treat sleeping disorders such as insomnia.
A different type of Passiflora called Passiflora foetida has shown great promise in helping to alleviate ulcers but also proved to be rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants play a key role in the health of our cells by eliminating free radicals from our bodies.
Melatonin is a hormone produced in the brain by the pineal gland. This natural biological chemical helps to regulate your wake-sleep cycle, also known as your biological clock. A healthy wake-sleep cycle is a process consisting of 8 hours spent sleeping and 16 hours spent awake.
The pineal gland increases the release of this hormone when your environment begins to grow dark. The amount released peaks between the hours of 11 P.M. and 3 A.M. at 200 picograms per mL. The average human will have a level of this hormone that is 10 times higher at night than during the day. Just before waking, the level of this hormone drops quickly which ushers in your waking cycle. The ebb and flow cycle of this wake-sleep hormone is known as our circadian rhythm.
Our circadian rhythm can be disturbed in any number of ways, whether it be from lack of light exposure, age, change of seasons, or from a lack of this wake-sleep hormone. This can lead to insomnia. Luckily, this hormone can be produced synthetically and is available for purchase as an over-the-counter supplement to treat insomnia. Following the instructions of your physician or the bottle, you will be able to return your wake-sleep hormones to a proper, natural level in order to help treat or alleviate your insomnia.
