These have helped me to get better sleep. I have a hard time falling asleep. I am a light sleeper and often wake up during the night. I take these a few times each week when I know it's going to be "one of those nights" and they seem to help me make it through the night better. Can't say they've helped a whole lot with me actually falling asleep, but I appreciate getting better quality sleep.
One thing I would note: they smell horrible! I don't know who would ever want to use the herb as tea (as the packaging suggests you can do) but -yuck- it would be disgusting! Thankfully, you can't really taste, them since they're gel capped.

1. didn't put me to sleep. my eyes are wide open @ the moment of writing this review (it is after 1 AM)

2. the capsule so big that it stuck in my throat for 2 hours. very uncomfortable.

3. it finally broke with an awful (medicinal) taste.
it also burned my esophagus a little when it did that.

    Do not make tea with it - It tastes horrid - Take the caps with milk or something creamy and you will like the way it makes you feel - I've been taking it for years now and won't quit - It helps me sleep and in the daytime it is very relaxing - Take one in the morning and one in the afternoon - Then take two before bed - Sleep like a log -

        This is a very natural way to calm yourself, and to get a good night sleep with any of the side effects of chemical sleep aids. Take as directed about an hour before you expect to retire for the evening.

        I live overseas and travel quite a bit. Have been taking melatonin for years but after the last bout of travel it's not been helping. This has allowed me to get more than a few hours sleep (more commonly known as a *nap*) and for that I am forever grateful!

          Comments about Nature's Bounty Valerian Root 450 mg plus Calming Blend, Capsules, 100 ea:

          Valerian root is effective if you take (for adults only) 5 of the 450 mg capsules about 30 minutes to an hour before going to bed to sleep. About 2 hours before sleep take 3 mg of melatonin. Do not have distractions like a TV in the room. If you are sensitive to any sound, use soft ear plugs as this can be very effective.

            This product is great for helping me sleep. I actually take between 2-4 caps at bedtime along with some theanine and lemon balm and usually get a good night's sleep. I wake refreshed with no grogginess or "hangover". I really like this supplement!

            always wonder if these really work that well or if its placebo effect, but i don't care b/c it does make feel better. stops me from getting to the point where I'm going to have a panic attack. I've used it as a preventative (before going somewhere I know will bring anxiety), and have used it as recovery if I feel anxiety creeping in.
