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.

    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.

                I tried this after a relative suggested it. It does make me fall asleep easier, but it would not keep me asleep. I still ended up taking 5mg of Ambien with it. I was hoping it would replace the Ambien, but no such luck. But my relative was able to stop taking Ambien and just take the Valerion. Like anything else, it works different for everyone.

                But the smell is very bad. I ordered some different pills that are coated and do not have the bad smell.

                  I have taken Valerian Root for a few years, and it does work. It is a natural alternative to the "over the counter" sleeping aids which can be addictive. It does have a "calming" effect and should be taken 1 to 2 hours before bedtime. Yes, it does have a slight smell to it, but nothing offensive.
