Difficulty getting off to sleep and disturbed sleep patterns are often associated with the pace of life today.
Many herbs with sedative and hypnotic properties can help resolve this problem without the addictive and 'hangover' effects associated with many modern drugs.
Both Valerian and Hops serve this purpose admirably, being the standard herbs used by many Herbalists.
The gentle action of these herbs on the nervous system makes them suitable for use in children who are overactive.
A trial comparing Valerian's effectiveness to Oxazepam (an anxiolytic, close cousin to Diazepam) found that they were equally effective but that the adverse effects were less in the Valerian group. This is often where herbal remedies come into their own: they are as effective as pharmaceutical preparations but do not have the side effects. Dorn,M. (2000) Forsch Komplementarmed Klass Naturheilkd, 7:79-84.
Mode of Action
Hops are very useful agents for restlessness, over-excitability, anxiety, tension and sleep problems. They contain humulones and lupulones which are metabolised in the body to a compound known as 2-methyl-3-buten-2-ol which exerts a sedative effect on the central nervous system (CNS).
They are also an antispasmodic bitter, enhancing digestion and easing intestinal tension.
Valerian is a herbal tranquilliser with a well established use for those with nervous excitement and disturbed sleep patterns. It improves the ability to fall asleep, as well as improving sleep quality.
The relaxing properties are due to the valepotriates and volatile oils present (especially valerenal and valerenic acid). Valerenic acid inhibits the breakdown of the neurotransmitter gamma-amino-butyric acid (GABA), increasing its concentration. This then leads to a decrease in CNS activity and sedation.
