These herbal medicines help

Irritability and depression

The indication area of the passion flower includes nervous restlessness, agitation and irritability in combination with difficulties in falling asleep. Passionflower extract contains flavonoids which, like the ingredients of valerian, modulate the GABAA receptor and enhance the inhibitory effect of the neurotransmitter. In addition, the retention time in the synaptic cleft is prolonged because the resumption via the GABAB receptor is inhibited. Both together have a relaxing effect, but do not make you tired. The passionflower herb is available as a tea or in the form of various ready-to-use medicines. To treat nervous sleep disorders, it is often combined with lemon balm, valerian or hops. A combination with St. John’s wort is also possible.

From 18 years

The lavender oil preparation Lasea® is considered to be a well-researched phytopharmaceutical against restlessness in combination with anxiety and sleep disorders. There is no fatigue or attention deficit during the day, but there may be increased unpleasant belching after taking it. Taking it with food and cold liquid reduces the discomfort. The preparation is approved for adults over 18 years of age, but should not be combined with benzodiazepines.

Rose root extract can also be recommended from the age of 18. Rose root belongs to the so-called adaptogenic plants. It increases the body’s resistance to stress factors and improves mental performance in demanding, stressful situations. In addition, there are indications that it also strengthens physical resilience.
