Anxiety and Insomnia relief: 3 engineered extracts in just one formula as an alternative to benzos

Anxiety and Insomnia relief: 3 engineered extracts in just one formula as an alternative to benzos

Anxiety and Insomnia can significantly impair day-to-day functioning. To treat these conditions doctors may prescribe benzodiazepines, which are potent medications but unfortunately, have quite a few drawbacks. 

Neurofast® has been shown to perform really well on anxiety and insomnia, similarly to benzodiazepines, but it is natural and side-effect free. It comes in three-layer tablets to create a more structured and effective combination of actions.

Cons of using benzos to treat Anxiety and Insomnia

Anxiety is a complex combination of negative emotions and can also give rise to physical symptoms such as palpitations, tightness in throat and chest and cramping abdominal pains. Another anxiety-related symptom is insomnia, which, in turn, can make anxiety symptoms worse, so these conditions can run after each other in a negative cycle.

Globally, the incidence of anxiety disorders and insomnia has increased considerably during the last decades, so they both represent issues of global concern.

Currently, anxiety and insomnia are still extensively treated with benzodiazepines (or benzos for short), although their long-term use is often associated with side effects. First point, benzos cause a tolerance effect, which means that with regular use their effect can wear off and it’s necessary to increase their dosage to get the same effect. Moreover, benzodiazepines are habit-forming and it’s easy to become addicted to them. That’s the reason why the withdrawal from a benzodiazepine treatment can be difficult and after that people may experience the so-called rebound effect, or re-emergence of symptoms that were either absent or controlled while taking the medication.

This was just to mention a few of the multiple drawbacks of benzos.

Neurofast®: natural yet advanced solution to solve a bundle of anxiety-related symptoms

In PharmExtracta we did our homework to offer some help to people suffering from anxiety, anxiety-related insomnia and other connected symptoms. The result was Neurofast®, a one-of-a-kind formula that is not simply a blending of herbs poured into a capsule, but a nutraceutical product formulated to produce maximum results.

Neurofast® is a food supplement based on highly standardized plant extracts that, thanks to the use of the technology of multi-layer tablets with differentiated release can enhance the effect of its single components with a synergistic action.

Let’s have a look at the active ingredients of Neurofast® and how they work thanks to their differentiated release.

NORMAL-RELEASE Hawthorn is released in forty-five minutes after administration; this enables the optimization of its pharmaco-clinical yield and provides sedative action and cardiac muscle relaxation. EFFECTIVE on TACHYCARDIA AND PALPITATION.

FAST-RELEASE Valerian is released within five minutes after administration; this ensures the rapid absorption of the extract, which occurs in the stomach and not in the gut, allowing a faster anxiolytic action. EFFECTIVE on ANXIETY and INSOMNIA.

SLOW-RELEASE Passionflower is released in eight hours; this guarantees a uniform absorption of the extract and reduces hepatic first-pass effect, thus increasing bioavailability. The prolonged contact with the intestinal mucosa provides for the spasmolytic effect of passionflower on the intestinal smooth muscles. EFFECTIVE on VISCERAL SOMATIZATIONS of ANXIETY.

Neurofast® Is the ideal option especially for those who prefer remedies that are both NATURAL and SIDE-EFFECT FREE rather than anxiolytic drugs because it helps the management of anxiety-related symptoms and insomnia while avoiding the onset of side effects commonly noticed with benzodiazepines. 

Some evidence about Neurofast®

Two different clinical studies investigated the efficacy of Neurofast®: VALERIANA, PASSIFLORA E BIANCOSPINO A RILASCIO DIFFERENZIATO. Studio clinico vs Benzodiazepine nei disturbi del sonno and Treatment of insomnia in individuals undergoing diet therapy: nutraceutical approach vs pharmacological approach, a retrospective evaluation

Both studies have backed up the promising effects of the formulation, demonstrating that Neurofast® significantly reduces:

  • anxiety
  • insomnia
  • tachycardia and palpitations
  • tightness in throat and chest
  • cramping abdominal pains
  • muscle pains on awakening

in a way similar to benzodiazepines.

Moreover, unlike benzodiazepines, Neurofast® doesn’t cause drowsiness on awakening or sleepiness during the day and doesn’t impair alertness proving to be a valuable aid for those people who have to perform tasks requiring sustained attention.

Finally, Neurofast® can be effectively used as a strategy treatment for discontinuing benzodiazepine therapy since the available studies show that switching to Neurofast® after with just day of coadministration with benzos allows patients to maintain the benefits achieved with no rebound effect.

We recommend taking two tablets daily for the first 3 weeks, as an attack phase, and then continue with 1 tablet daily, as maintenance treatment.
