Valerian Extract is not just another product on the dietary supplement market. The quality standards of the production process are reflected in the characteristics of the product. Find them out!
The extract refers to the concentration in equivalent to the amount of plant used.
A 5:1 extract means that each mg of plant extract is equivalent to 5 mg of native plant part.
This way, consuming a significant amount of common valerian is easier, each capsule of Valerian Extract (500mg) is equivalent to 2500mg of the native root of Valeriana officinalis. A more convenient way to take advantage of the plant's functional effects.
At HSN we use the best raw materials for the development of our dietary supplements, including herbal extracts.
HSN's Valerian Extract is 5 times more concentrated, and comes from the roots of the plant, the part with the highest valerate content, and therefore of greater nutritional and functional interest for use in the form of dietary supplements.
This has made it possible to standardise a high % of valerianic acid in the plant.
Standardisation is the measurement of multiple productions using the same developmental characteristics of a herbal extract to determine the minimum concentration of a chemical constituent in its composition.
In valerian, the compound of greatest functional interest is valeric acid, and a good quality raw material must have a guaranteed content of this compound.
EssentialSeries Valerian Extract is standardised to 0.8% valerianic acid.
Vitamin B3 or niacin is known to be a nutritionally essential micronutrient, i.e. the body needs it to maintain a state of nutritional adequacy.
Herbal extracts are not always suitable for vegans, and sometimes they're not even suitable for vegetarians, why?
Because most dietary supplements use coating agents or lacquers of animal origin, sometimes from gelatine or other connective structures of pigs.
At HSN we use hypromellose, a high-strength coating, that is derived from plant cellulose.
HSN Valerian Extract is suitable for vegan diets.
Use one plant-based capsule, once a day, 30 minutes before bed.

A satisfied customer says:
It has nothing to do with the Valerian that you can buy over there. They really work, I sleep more without interruptions, I wake up with a sense of peace that still stays with me for a few hours. Highly recommended.Show original language
A critical customer says:
Good product that has some effect to help rest. I have been taking it for months and have noticed it slightly the day I have not taken it.Show original language
