Why use valerian root for your dog? Valerian root is an herb that has been around and used for medical purposes for a very along time. Valerian root is an herb that may help improve sleep, promote relaxation and reduce anxiety.

If your dog deals with stress or anxiety, valerian root may help in reducing their stress level. You may be asking yourself how? Well recently valerian has been receiving a lot of attention for interaction with gamma-aminobutric acid (GABA).

GABA is thought to help regulate nerve impulses in the brain and nervous system. This is what www.healthline.com has to say about valerian and GABA.

“Valerenic acid has been found to inhibit the breakdown of GABA in the brain, resulting in feelings of calmness and tranquility. This is the same way anti-anxiety medications like Valium and Xanax work. Valerian root also contains the antioxidants hesperidin and linarin, which appear to have sedative and sleep-enhancing properties.”

    I am already giving my new dog the stress/ calm product. I’m wondering if I am overloading him, if I add the valarian.
    He’s new, just one month here, from foster care, had a very bad upbringing in a dog hoarding home two years prior. He’s 10 years old. Thankyou.
