Valerian and the Canadian Natural Product Database

Valerian and the Candian Natural Product Database

This blooming plant has got me thinking about medicinal product safety and government regulations. Valerian ( Valeriana officinalis ) has been used as sedative and relaxant for thousands of years. In Canada natural health products go through a listing procedure. I searched the government database and found 514 registered products that list Valerian as an ingredient. Why not check out your favorite medicinal herb at and see the sort of products it is used in ?
