Valerian Root [Nervous] comes from the Latin valere, which means to be in good health.Â The plant grows in damp places throughout Europe, northern Asia, the U.S. and South America. It is well known for its odor during drying, which is akin to smelly socks or rotten cheese. Records of valerianÂs use go back more than 1,000 years. It was used as coffee by German women, as a condiment during medieval times and as a perfume during the 16th century.
The roots have been used for food by many cultures. The Piute Indians ground them to make flour, and the British used the roots in soups.
In addition to its many historical uses, modern herbalists use the root primarily to support special needs of the central nervous system.

Chondroitin [Structural] helps bond connective tissue to prevent tearing, and inhibits enzymes that can deplete cartilage nutrition. (Cartilage functions to protect bones from moving against each other and to reduce friction.) Chondroitin helps retain moisture in the joints, allowing for flexibility and resiliency, and cushioning against activities like jumping and lifting. In addition, chondroitin works with other nutrients like glucosamine to stimulate the rebuilding and maintenance of cartilage. The body produces chondroitin, but that production decreases as we grow older. Chondroitin can also be found in foods, but usually only in small amounts. Fortunately, the body absorbs chondroitin well, making supplementation a viable alternative. Each capsule contains 300 mg of chondroitin sulfate. Take 2 capsules with a meal twice daily. Drink 8 oz. of NatureÂs Spring water along with the capsules.Stock No. 1811-5 (60)
Glucosamine [Structural] occurs naturally in the bodyÂs joints and cartilage and plays a key role in the structural system. As we age, our bodies become less efficient at manufacturing the elements necessary for healthy joint structure. Glucosamine works with nutrients like chondroitin to stimulate rebuilding and maintenance of cartilage. Now you can get glucosamine with the added nutritional benefits of uÃ±a de gato (catÂs claw), one of the worldÂs foremost tonic herbs. UÃ±a de gato grows in the highland rainforests of Peru, where it has been popular for centuries. UÃ±a de gato provides nutrients essential to the bodyÂs structural system, plus itÂs a premier metabolic tonic herb. ItÂs also called ÂOpener of the WayÂ for its cleansing properties. Each capsule blends 400 mg of glucosamine hydrochloride with 50 mg of uÃ±a de gato. Four capsules provide 1,600 mg of glucosamine. Take 2 capsules with a meal twice daily.Stock No. 903-4 (60)
