Mild stress or anxiety can sometimes make it difficult for you to fall asleep. Unfortunately‚ a lack of rest could exacerbate any physical or mental tension you may already be feeling. Valerian Extract by Pure Encapsulations may help break the cycle by supplying valerenic acid‚ a compound that may have a mild sedating effect.
Valerian Extract might help calm your nerves by encouraging your brain to release the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid. Neurotransmitters are chemicals that are used by your central nervous system to send messages throughout your body; GABA naturally works to slow down the transmission of these signals‚ which could minimize the number of distracting thoughts racing through your mind at bedtime.
In addition to potentially allowing you to fall asleep more easily‚ this valerian extract supplement may also work to improve the quality of your sleep. Furthermore‚ you might wake up in the morning feeling less drowsy‚ more refreshed‚ and better able to cope with the challenges of the day ahead.
