NOL, Nutraveris Online, the most efficient data solution to create, keep up-to-date and launch your products in the 28 EU member states, used for 10years by more than 500 industry leaders informs you:

Valerian is widely used as herbal supplement for its effects on sleep quality and mood. However, valerian is as phytoestrogenic herb that may be used for the management of menopausal disorders.


In this triple-blinded, randomized and placebo-controlled trials, 60 postmenopausal women (45-55 years) have received a placebo or 530 mg valerian twice daily for 2 months. By using the Kupperman Menopausal Index (KMI), the authors reported a significant reduction in the severity of hot flashes after one (p = 0.048) and two months (p = 0.02). Moreover, the frequency of hot flashes was also lower in the valerian group than in the placebo group (p = 0.033).

Therefore, valerian should be proposed to peri- and post-menopausal women, for the management of hot flashes but also to improve mood and sleep.
