The valerian herb in Amantilla has been used medicinally for at least 2,000 years. It was included in many editions of the United States Dispensatory (Merck) since 1849, which reported the herb’s effect on the nervous system. It is very effective in assisting with stress and anxiety. For some, Amantilla can also be used to induce sleep. GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric acid), sometimes referred to as the body’s natural tranquilizer, is one of the amino acids produced in the brain. Valerian extracts like Amantilla contain GABA in quantities sufficient to cause a sedative effect. Furthermore, a possible mechanism by which Amantilla may cause sedation is by increasing the amount of GABA available in the synaptic cleft. Results from an in vitro study using synaptosomes suggest that valerian products like Amantilla may cause GABA release from, and block GABA reuptake into, brain nerve endings.
In September 2005, a clinical study was conducted in Guayaquil, Ecuador: THE TREATMENT OF INSOMNIA IN PATIENTS AT 4 HOSPITALS IN GUAYAQUIL, ECUADOR, USING TWO NOVEL HERBAL EXTRACTS: A DOUBLE BLIND, RANDOMIZED, MULTIPLE CROSSOVER, PLACEBO-CONTROLLED, MULTICENTER STUDY. The study shows that Amantilla was effective for 82.5% of the patients.
