Manage your daily challenges in a more relaxed way

Reading time: 4 minutes


Life is full of opportunities and challenges, but time is precious. So, we try to fit as much in to our day as possible. Maybe it’s career and family life, fitness and hobbies, or social life with friends, and other relationships and commitments.  But sometimes life can become too demanding because we keep saying ‘yes’ and commit to so many things. It’s hard to juggle it all, and whilst it might have seemed like a good idea to try and do as much as possible, it can start to weigh us down. When this happens, we can feel overloaded and stressed, which in return is simply exhausting – physically as well as mentally.

Our nervous system reacts to stressful times by releasing stress hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol, as part of the body’s flight or fight response, to help us cope better. When we sense a threat or danger, our body rises to the challenge by releasing these stress hormones which tighten the muscles, making our blood pressure rise and our heart and lungs work harder, and releasing a surge of fat and sugar to give us energy.  In normal situations when the pressure or danger has passed, hormone levels should calm down and the heart, blood pressure and other body systems get back to normal.  However, if our daily life’s challenges give no time for recuperation, then the nervous system triggers an ongoing stress response, and our body doesn’t use up the chemicals it makes to protect us.  Continuous strain can lead to numerous symptoms such as nervous restlessness, memory and concentration problems, headaches and chest pain, which in the long term can be damaging to our health.

There are lots of ways that experts suggest we can help to minimise life’s daily challenges and try and protect ourselves from stress:

  • Eating healthily
  • Reducing smoking and alcohol intake
  • Finding time for regular exercise and relaxation
  • Practise mindfulness – even just a short walk quietly in the park or amongst trees
  • Getting a good night’s sleep

Unfortunately, sleeping problems are common when we are suffering from stress. Daytime restlessness impacts on night-time sleeplessness causing a knock-on stress cycle effect.   After a full-on day, we can feel exhausted and look forward to sleeping well at night to recover. But due to the tension that has built up in our system during our hectic day it can be difficult to fall asleep; or sleep can be light, meaning we wake in the night and can’t get back to sleep. Without a good night’s sleep, the following day is often an uphill struggle, leading to even more tension and stress.

Neurexan® is a 100% natural remedy, designed to help break the stress cycle by reducing nervous tension and anxiety during the day and improving the quality of sleep during the night.  During the day, it can help us regain our inner balance to feel more relaxed and be able to handle stressful situations more calmly. Concentration and performance are retained without any risk of addiction or drowsiness, and sleep is better at night.

Neurexan’s four ingredients are derived naturally, so you can be sure it only contains plant and mineral compounds. The unique combination of these natural components is key to Neurexan’s beneficial effects:

  • Passionflower: The Passiflora plant has been traditionally used over the centuries for several health purposes. Passionflower is particularly effective in treating nervousness, anxiety and sleep difficulties.
  • Oat: Oat is known as a ‘superfood’ for its many health benefits such as lowering cholesterol levels and treating exhaustion and sleep issues.
  • Valerian Zinc Salt: The zinc salt contains valerian, which helps against nervousness and sleep disturbances without causing drowsiness.
  • Coffee Plant: The caffeine in coffee is not only known to improve moods. It also increases serotonin levels in the brain which can reduce depressive tendencies and relax us, therefore helps against insomnia.

Passionflower, Oat, Valerian Zinc Salt, and Coffee Plant all work within the central nervous system, where key signalling processes occur when stress and tension rise. Scientific evidence confirming their effectiveness in alleviating symptoms such as nervousness, restlessness, daytime fatigue, and insomnia are well documented.

Case Examples:


David is 55 years old and has been feeling overwhelmed by his work since his recent promotion.  He works late, but not at his best, and worries about making mistakes.  He hardly sees his children during the week, and is concerned about his relationship with his wife.

Impact of nervous restlessness

He has racing thoughts in bed, and as a result sleeps badly and has difficulty getting up in the morning.  He feels constantly fatigued and no longer has the time or energy to go to the gym.  He has occasional palpitations and is concerned he may get ill and be unable to provide for his family

Key Insight

Nervous restlessness causes insomnia, which in turn feeds further stress in a vicious cycle


Angela is 45 years old and has felt constantly drained ever since the birth of her daughter.  She is constantly in a rush with no time for herself.  Even at weekends she is busy doing chores.  She can’t remember when she last sat down and relaxed, and she has lost contact with several friends.

Impact of nervous restlessness

She worries about her daughter, but is short-tempered with her and fears one day she might explode.  She forgets to do simple things and suffers from headaches and shoulder tension.  She is too tired to read in bed, but has trouble falling asleep.

Key Insight

Nervous restlessness can severely reduce quality of life.
