Let's look inside: Neurexan

Penny King, marketing consultant at BioPathica, explores the inner workings and benefits of Neurexan

What is Neurexan®?

Neurexan® is a 100 per cent natural, dual-benefit oral medication indicated for the treatment of nervous restlessness and sleep disturbances. It comprises a multi-target, multicomponent combination of natural ingredients well known to have an effect on stress and/or sleep disturbances: Passiflora incarnata (purple passion flower), Avena sativa (common oats), Coffea arabica (coffee plant), and Zincum isovalerianicum (valerianate of zinc).

It is 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.

What are the benefits?

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.

The clinical efficacy of Neurexan® is supported by scientific research and over 15 years of worldwide experience.

Neurexan® has no known interactions with other medicines; is well tolerated, with a more rapid onset of action compared to valerian and represents a valuable addition to a healthcare professionals’ armamentarium for stress-related disorders.

How does it work?

The body’s response to stress is a complex web of inter-related physiological processes that can lead to a cycle of nervous restlessness and sleep disturbances. Daytime restlessness impacts on sleep at night-time causing a knock-on stress cycle effect. Stress-related sleeplessness usually lasts for only a few days. However, because this is itself stressful, prolonged stress can result in a vicious cycle of stress and sleeplessness. If the cycle is not broken, symptoms may become chronic and difficult to resolve.

  • Passionflower: particularly effective in treating nervousness, anxiety and sleep difficulties
  • Oat: can help lower cholesterol levels and treat exhaustion and sleep issues
  • Valerian Zinc Salt: 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.

Where does it come from?

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.

Neurexan® is manufactured by Heel a German pharmaceutical company which specialises in developing and manufacturing medicines made from natural ingredients. Neurexan® is manufactured in state-of-the-art GMP Certificated Manufacturing Facilities in Baden-Baden, Germany. It was launched in 2003 and is currently available in over 50 countries worldwide.
