The temperate regions of the Himalayas are home to a perennial and herbaceous plant that is slowly gaining immense popularity around the world due to its similarity to Valerian.
In fact, so similar is the action of the herb, that it has earned a nickname ‘The Indian Valerian’. In India, it is known as Tagara.
Characterized by an irregularly shaped root, Tagara was once considered to be an official medicine with powerful sedative properties making it a very effective cure for Insomnia.
It finds a special mention in Ayurveda and is used in a variety of Ayurvedic preparations used for the treatment of delirium, insomnia, epilepsy and behavioral disorders.
