Valerian tea is derived from Valeriana officinalis, an herb known to provide sedative effects. Recent research suggests that this herb works by increasing levels of a brain chemical called gammaaminobutyric acid, that helps induce a feeling of relaxation and sleep. Sleep allows the body time to balance hormones involved in the regulation of appetite, mood and fat storage. These hormones include Leptin, Ghrelin,Cortisol and more. Other studies have shown valerian extracts to contain GABA, an inhibitory neurotransmitter released from brain nerve endings that contributes to valerian’s sedative effects.(7)
