Amantilla Relax is an extract produced from the root of Valeriana officinalis, commonly known as valerian. Nutramedix utilizes a proprietary extraction and enhancement process that makes this product far more effective than any other valerian product available. Amantilla was approved as medicine in Ecuador in early 2006.
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 treating stress and anxiety. For some, Amantilla can also be used to induce sleep.
In June 2005, a study measuring the sedative effect of Nutramedix Amantilla was conducted on laboratory rodents in Ecuador at the University of Guayaquil. Amantilla was found to statistically have the same sedative effect as the pharmaceutical Diazepam (Valium).
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

The “German Commission E” reports that there are no known contraindications, no known side effects and no known interactions with other drugs when using valerian products like Amantilla. However, the pharmaceutical Valium can cause a long list of adverse reactions and there are many cases of death reported by overdose. In May 2005, toxicology studies were conducted on the Nutramedix Amantilla at the University of Guayaquil, Ecuador. No toxic effects were reported, even when laboratory rodents received 500,000 times the equivalent human dose.
The 2005 clinical study shows that Amantilla was effective for 82.5% of the patients.
