Valerenic acid is said to stimulate GABA receptors that then causes a sedative effect. Increased GABA activity is associated with Psychological feelings of calm and relaxation. It does this by helping to Inhibit Central Nervous System activity to prepare for the onset of sleep.
Other studies have also looked at the function of Valerenic acid on Serotonin receptors. It was found to be an agonist for the 5HT(5A) receptors. These are located in the part of the brain that regulates the sleep-wake cycle. Serotonin is the Neurochemical that we associate most commonly with the feelings of joy, satisfaction and well-being. When the Serotonin receptors are increased, it makes us feel happy, relaxed and can also make it easier to fall asleep. Research still continues to study the function of action for Valerenic acid and how they relate to reported Valerian Root benefits.
