Natural Relaxers: Valerian Root, Passion Flower & Magnesium (a detailed explanation and history)
Since the beginning of time, humans have experimented with plant materials in an effort to improve and maintain health. The plant kingdom provides most of the building blocks for nutrition and medicine. Unfortunately, the drug revolution has been very successful over the last several decades and the thousands-year old herbal approach has been called 'alternative' when it has always been, until this past century, mainstream.
Among the most commonly prescribed drugs in 'orthodox' medicine are sedatives. They are prescribed for insomnia, muscle aches, sciatica, anxiety, depression, TMJ, tension headaches and more. People who are under a great deal of stress and try to pack a lot into their day are often candidates for sedative use and unfortunately, abuse. Most people have forgotten nature's sedatives. These folks run to their doctor for a drug when an all natural sedative could have worked fine.
Natural sedatives abound in the plant kingdom. Formula 303 contains two of natures best all natural sedatives: valerian root and passion flower. However, because neural activity depends upon the presence of proper ratios among certain electrolytes, supplementation with magnesium can be therapeutic. That's why you will find magnesium in our Formula 303. Magnesium appears to be a key element in preventing over-excitement, agitation, insomnia and muscle cramps.
Most people that supplement with all natural valerian root, passion flower and magnesium, as found in Formula 303, have no need to resort to prescription sedatives or muscle relaxants.
VALERIAN ROOT (Valeriana Officinalis)
Valerian root was already popular centuries ago for use in calming upset nerves, and for treating mood problems, pain and headache. It was known in ancient Greece and achieved great notoriety in 18th century Europe as a cure for 'female hysteria'. In medieval times, valerian was so popular it became known as 'All Heal'. Over time, the plant has gained a solid reputation. It is now one of the most popular antispasmodic treatments in Russia and Germany. Chinese, Asian and North American physicians have incorporated valerian root into their pharmacopoeias.
Valerian root is used as a natural tension reducer in the modern world to treat insomnia, nervous tension, anxiety, muscle cramps, spasms and pain, headache, stress, PMS, menstrual pain and discomfort, hysteria, epilepsy (as an anticonvulsant), gastrointestinal disorders (upset stomach, cramps, colic, gas, flatulence and diarrhea). In herbal terms, it is antispasmodic (muscle relaxant), calmative (sedative, depressant), nervine (tranquilizing), carminative (good for upset stomach and digestion), and anodyne (pain reliever). One old folklore tale depicts married couples hanging valerian in their homes to help bring peace and prevent contention.
