how is the valerian extract standardized .That is, is a certain component titered to a certain concentration to allow batch to batch predictable outcome . What is the component that is standardized and what is it standardized against ? What are the Gold standard values for a standard titer ?

Valerian is a supplement, not a prescription drug, therefore it is not standardized. Concentrations will vary from one companies product to another.

Then that is something I cannot answer, those standards would be set by the company itself, so you would have to ask them for the details.

Verwon..thanks..but I guess I was hoping that someone from the Company would pick up on this .If a product is to have credibility statements regarding it must be verifiable. As a chemist I deplore such things as ..well it works but we do not know how..or this defies scientific principles BUT....Anyway thanks for your interest....to get the information that I seek..would be easier to take a bone away from a bulldog than get a straight answer.

Sorry, wish I could be more help there, you are probably right, the chances of them giving you a straight answer aren't very high.
