Valerian root is known for its calming effects and has been proven to be helpful in managing anxiety and reducing the dangerous side effects of stress. Valerian root increases gamma amino butyric acid (GABA) in the brain producing a relaxed, less anxious effect in both man and animals. Valerian also seems to be good for treating muscle pain and relieving joint pain.
