2) Does Puritan’s Pride Calm Tabs Work?

As stated above, Calm Tabs is an herbal remedy advertised as highly effective in treating insomnia and other sleep-related problems.

The formula contains Valerian root extract. Valerian has been used as a medicinal plant since at least the time of ancient Rome and Greece. Because of its long historical use as an anticonvulsant, pain reliever, sedative and migraine treatment, many scientists believe that Valerian interacts with the GABA neurotransmitter receptor system.

However, the evidence we have is inconclusive, and the conducted studies require independent replication. The bottom line is that the mechanism of action of Valerian, in general, remains unknown.

This herb is one of the most commonly used ingredients for insomnia and other related disorders as an alternative to prescription medication. Individual studies suggest that Valerian has an effect that is calming but doesn’t cause sleepiness the following day.

Valerian root is well tolerated with very few reported side effects. Large doses may result in apathy, mild depression, stomach ache or feeling of mental dullness. Because of its tranquilizer qualities, Valerian may cause drowsiness or dizziness.

There are testimonials about Calm Tabs posted online. What is being reported includes the following:

• It works
• It’s a great calming product
• I have used this product for several years with no side effects
• Really cheap


3) How Much Does Puritan’s Pride Calm Tabs Cost?

Calm Tabs is one of the cheapest products of its type available on the market at this moment. Each bottle contains 200 capsules, which should be enough for up to 50 days of treatment, at a maximum recommended dosage of 4 capsules before bedtime.

Calm Tabs can be purchased directly from the manufacturer. Buying from there will allow you to take advantage of several discount offers.

I love the Calm Tabs – although I have read online that one needs to take a break from Valerian Root..I have developed a itchy bumpy rash on my back and wondered if anyone else has experience this allergic reaction? I am trying to pin down the cause of the rash…

Don’t work for me. Besides causing heart palpitations, I became more restless.

Bernard Wade

I can swear by it. I get stressed easily and these pills taken a little in advance of stressful situation help keep me way calmer. We take 2 to 3 tablets when necessary.

Jill Parker

I have used these for several years to help calm my nerves when I am under stress. They really help. It’s not something that I use daily but only when needed and they do the trick.
