Nervous tension / stress relief
In case of mild nervous tension, mental stress, sleep troubles, it is recommended that the medical treatment starts with the administration of herbal materials with a calming effect. Conventional pharmacological solutions used in the therapy of anxiety disorders do not always manage to remove all undesirable symptoms. Moreover, like hypnotic medications, they may cause a number of burdensome side effects.
Because of that, there is a growing interest in options of alleviating anxiety and sleeplessness with vegetal solutions alternative and/or complementary to conventional means.
Difficulties falling asleep / better sleep
For increased anxiety, emotional tension and/or sleeplessness the traditional medicine has recommended for long the extracts from the valerian root, Melissa herbaceous plant, passion flower or hop flowers (cones). It is confirmed that the said extracts may be used to reduce mental stress symptoms, mild nervous tension and difficulties falling asleep. Moreover, products obtained from valerian, melissa, passion flower or hop strobile are also commonly recommended for women who struggle with the burdensome perimenopausal symptoms.
