Tagar/Tagara/Tagar-ganthoda/ Indian Valerian is a plant that is native to the temperate Himalayas, the Khasia hills, and is found in Kashmir and Bhutan at an elevation of 3000 meters. Its botanical name is Valeriana wallichii. Although it also grows in North America, tagara is thought to be native to Europe and some regions of Asia. The root is used to produce medicine. According to the Ayurvedic sage Charak, benefits of Indian Valerian roots include their ability to treat neurological, psychiatric, and digestive ailments. According to Ayurveda, Tagara has a heated potency, is snigdha or unctuous in character, and calms overactive Pitta, Kapha, and Vitiated Vatta. According to classical Ayurvedic writings, tagara enhances ocular functions and has pain-relieving properties. Tagara assists those who suffer from insomnia by calming the mind, boosting the neurological system, and enhancing sleep.
One teaspoon of tagar powder with warm water in the evening promotes healthy blood circulation and decreases joint inflammation and pain. When combined with ginger juice, Indian valerian powder helps to relieve stomach pain, bloating, and abdominal gas. When taken three to four days prior to menstruation, Indian valerian extract helps to reduce abdominal pain and stomach spasms. When combined with pushkarmul and vacha, tagar extract helps to open up the airways in the lungs and raise oxygen levels. According to a scientific study, Indian valerian contains valepotriates, an essential oil that contains sesquiterpenes, valeric acid, and terpene alcohol to support its physiological effects. Due to the presence of valepotriates, herbal tea made with Indian Valerian extract and honey can help people relax and get a good night's sleep.
