  • Antidepressant, anxiolytic: Tagara helps to treat stress-related disorders, relieving depression & anxiety.

Did You Know? The use of tagara to treat insomnia and nervousness dates back to the 16th Century.

The United States Food & Drug Administration includes tagara in their GRAS (Generally Recognised as Safe) (GRAS)’ list; the German Commission E has also approved the use of tagara as a mild natural sedative.


  • Take 1-2 capsules twice daily with meals.

  • Indian valerian root (Valeriana wallichi) dried water extract 500mg

For me, it works moderately well for improving sleep (although I've only been using it for about a week). However, it has been fantastic for reducing hot flushes, both frequency and intensity (I'd give it 5 stars for that!), and I can really recommend it. Stick with it for at least a week though, as it takes a few days to become effective.

It works brilliantly, having trouble sleeping this is your fix. Works like a charm.
14/06/2020, By Stash
Helps me fall asleep faster on restless nights. Works well for my mom too. Would recommend as a substitute to sleeping pills!
01/06/2020, By Johny
No side effects like sleeping tablets
25/05/2020, By Stash

27/03/2020, By Gabriella
Didn't work much for me.
21/02/2020, By Carmelita
I use 4 tablets at a time and still don't feel much effect. Maybe I just need to find something stronger - but this ain't it.
18/02/2020, By Dephney
It takes time to work, but I like the fact that it calms me.
13/02/2020, By Sandy
Unfortunately I haven't found that this product helps me with getting to sleep at the beginning of the night or in the middle of the night.
11/01/2020, By LauBez
I haven't been taking it consistently but have felt a calming effect when I do take it. No morning grogginess.
18/12/2019, By Marnipl
I had high hopes based on other reviews. I suppose it can’t work for everyone and in my case, my sleep has unfortunately not improved. I take it only @ night.
30/10/2019, By Candy
Update on my previous review. Initially it did not make any difference, however I decided to just finish the bottle anyway. I can now say that after a month of taking 2 everyday I can feel the difference and I actually sleep much better now.
27/10/2019, By T
Awesome product. Restful deep good sleep. I love it
17/09/2019, By Wan
I love Valerian. It is a natural calming herb, that aids with sleep.
12/08/2019, By Candy
I bought it based on all the positive reviews it had received, however It Doesn't seem to help me much with my insomnia. I have used it for 4 days now, so I will finish the bottle and see if it might eventually work for me.
29/07/2019, By Betta
Very happy with it, it works for me.

Omw wat a fabulous product. A great natural alternative to valium.
31/05/2019, By Cindy
Does what it claims, I do get better sleep when using these tablets! I only take two once a day and not even very regularly but I can feel the difference.
21/04/2019, By J
Love Valerian, very subtle calming med. Usually used for sleeping but I use it during the day when I have a lot going on- calms anxiety. It helps my IBS symptoms. I use it intermittently when I really need some support for nerves.
08/03/2019, By Lorraine
Excellent product. Helps me relax after a day enduring a lot of pain
28/12/2018, By Maxine
Valerian is great to take at night to help with sleep.
24/11/2018, By Megan
Anything natural with no side effects is a winner.
19/11/2018, By Alison
Works like a dream. No side effects only a good nights rest and many pleasant dreams :)
15/11/2018, By Carmen
As someone who has suffered from sleep issues for many years, I can confidently say that this product has helped ALOT! It makes me fall asleep quicker, and I find I wake up less during the night. I should say though I am only doing half dosage at the moment (two capsules at night) and it seems to be working very well
29/10/2018, By Anonymous
This product really helps like vallium. It's just natural replacement with no harmful effects.
10/10/2018, By Lorraine
I've had sleep issues for a long time. I've tried many remedies with no joy. Even though I ordered this product I was still skeptical about it's potential . I would recommend this product to everyone. I tried it and it worked like magic. I'm now purchasing my next order. Very effective.

28/09/2018, By Tums
Prior to using this product I have been struggling with sleep for quite a while. I would go to bed around 21h00 and find myself awake at midnight or at 02h00, sleep wouldn't come easy thereafter. Since I have been using Himalaya Valerian, I sleep easy throughout the night and wake up refreshed.
17/09/2018, By Maria
Ek kan hierdie produk aanbeveel. Dit werk vir my, bestel vandag 'n volgende houertjie. Voel die volgende dag uitgerus, geen newe-effekte nie.
02/07/2018, By Cheri
Only used 3 times. I find it calming and letting you fall asleep easier. Musn't be taken too late as it can make one feel drowsy/lethargic.
25/06/2018, By Dedre
I have used different products over the years with various levels of success but was searching for a natural product which I now hopefully have found. I have tried it over the past 3 weeks and am satisfied with the results and experience no side effects. I take the capsule on going to bed and find that it works right through the night. I would prefer a compressed pill rather than a capsule - I do not know if this is possible?
21/06/2018, By Terri
I'm still not entirely sure whether this is helping me sleep or not. After the first few days of it not working I combined it with Flora Force Sleep and then I started sleeping better. I don't really want to be taking 2 different products to help me sleep though. I'm going to finish the bottle on its own and then take it from there and see which one works better in the long run.
11/06/2018, By Nat
Beware that it may cause depression with prolonged use. Some people do report other side effects such as dizziness so i recommend reading up on it first to know what to look out for. Great sleep aid
23/04/2018, By Linda
Worked from the get-go and have enjoyed blissful full nights of sleep since. Definitely recommend for anyone struggling with insomnia.
23/04/2018, By Marily
Has a calming effect.
06/04/2018, By Perennial Insomniac
I tried this for the first time last night and I was 15 minutes late for work this morning. But I don't care because I am feeling well rested for the first time in weeks!
19/03/2018, By Sandra
A wonderful night's sleep - with no nasty after-effects.
11/01/2018, By Gail
This product doesn't seem to help me with sleeping.
30/12/2017, By Fuz
Bought this product so my mum could resort to herbal products instead of conventional and expensive sleeping tablets. She has always had trouble falling asleep and says it works very well, best taken around 4 pm. No drowsiness or any side effects.
14/07/2017, By Haanim
17/03/2017, By Karien
I combine this with one sleep capsule from Flora Force, and it is works so well
01/02/2016, By Sigrid
Since my baby was born, Ive struggled to relax enough to sleep well. Even once he was occasionally sleeping through the night, I was still waking up at least once and struggling to fall asleep, too. Not ideal. I started taking a valerian tablet every night when I go to bed (instead of rescue remedy drops, which taste revolting) and now I can sleep as long as he stays asleep. After taking it for about a month, the cumulative effect has been that I fall asleep more easily and sleep more soundly throughout the night. All great things for this new mom!
30/07/2015, By Kerryn
Excellent and really helps us to sleep well with no drowsiness the next day :)
