Finding inner serenity can be difficult, especially in upsetting times like these. It's good that there are herbal remedies that help restore balance without side effects.

For two years now, the Covid 19 pandemic has had the world in its iron grip, social discontent is growing, many people are affected by economic restrictions in the wake of it, and the geopolitical situation is not exactly making sleep any easier. Add to that the typical stresses of everyday life in education, work and family. The mental merry-go-round spins incessantly without apparent cause, every mosquito becomes an elephant, the mood is constantly at rock bottom or on the verge of exploding. The feeling of always being on the go and not being able to fall asleep despite being very tired tugs at the nerves.

 "Restlessness has countless faces. Nervous restlessness is usually accompanied by inner tension. There is a lack of composure and balance. Affected people are then unfocused, often irritable, over-sensitive or even aggressive. At the same time, however, they feel tired, listless and less able to work under pressure, which is due to exhaustion," says Natura Vitalis founder Frank Felte (www.naturavitalis.de). The company from Essen has long been considered one of the leading manufacturers of natural food supplements and places the highest value on continuous further and new developments of health products on a scientific basis.

 The most common cause is an excess of stress. The triggers are manifold and vary from person to person and situation to situation. In addition to physical stimuli such as severe and persistent pain or environmental influences such as noise, professional or private stresses such as deadline pressure, mobbing, relationship problems as well as one's own attitude can also be a trigger. Once the stress reaction has manifested itself, those affected cannot find peace even in phases without acute stress. "Headaches, trembling hands, palpitations or increased sweating can be unpleasant side effects," explains Frank Felte.

 Supposed relaxants such as alcohol or chemical-based tranquillisers, however, often do not make the situation any better. Therefore, alternatives are important to fight your way out of the low. Nature has gentle and reliable helpers at the ready. Medicinal plants work on a physical as well as on a mental and spiritual level. "Due to their holistic effect, they can bring about comfort, clarity and relaxation," Frank Felte knows.

 Valerian, oats and lavender, for example, have proven particularly effective for nervous restlessness. Valerian alleviates restlessness during the day, and in the evening it helps with nervous sleep disorders. Valerian root extracts are found in numerous mono- and combination preparations, and their effect has been well studied. Real lavender not only helps against restlessness, but also alleviates anxiety and nervous digestive complaints, just as the extract of passion flower has always been used against nervous overstimulation.

Oats are also popularly used as a remedy for nervousness and exhaustion. For homeopathic use, the whole fresh plant is processed to provide relief from mental exhaustion, nervous restlessness and problems with sleep and concentration. Hops in the form of tea are also a good aid against inner restlessness and for restful sleep. Another possible application is hop tablets or lozenges. In addition, a full bath with 20 grams of hops can also provide relaxation before going to bed.

Frank Felte also points out a special product from Natura Vitalis. "Vitamin B Komplex" is a high-dose vitamin B preparation according to an orthomolecular formula. Among other things, it contains vitamin B6. "This contributes to a normal formation of red blood cells and to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. It also contributes to normal nervous system function and normal mental function." Vitamin B9, also known as folic acid or folate, also helps reduce fatigue and tiredness.
