Every one of us knows the feeling of anxiety. It is a completely normal reaction to a situation that warns us of the dangers of everyday life and that threatens our sense of security. This unpleasant feeling normally disappears by itself as soon as the external threat is no longer present.
But the brain metabolism can derail to such an extent that inner restlessness, a persistent feeling of insecurity or fear can sometimes occur for no apparent reason, i.e. without any direct external influence and even when there is no real danger at all: e.g. due to a traumatic experience that happened some time ago, long-standing conflicts, persistent stress or constant worry.
The brain produces different messenger substances that are responsible for the development of fear, as well as for inner calm and relaxation. The two most important messengers are glutamate and GABA (gamma aminobutyric acid). Normally, glutamate and GABA are in balance.
Threat,stress and uncertainty cause the body to produce more glutamate and you feel the sensation of fear and anxiety throughout your body. The more glutamate, the stronger the feeling of fear and anxiety, in the worst case up to panic attacks.
GABA is the antagonist of glutamate. Its job is to displace glutamate and inhibit its action so that the feeling of calm and serenity can be restored. Only when GABA and glutamate are in balance do we feel calm and balanced.
Serenity is ideal for naturally supporting you with feelings of inner turmoil, insecurity and worry. By taking Serenity regularly, a lack of calming neurotransmitters is balanced and mental health is strengthened. More of the neurotransmitters in the brain and central nervous system that can counteract inner tensions are produced again.
It is best to take Serenity shortly before going to bed. If you wake up at night and cannot fall asleep, take another dose. Serenity reduces mind wandering and helps you to fall back asleep quickly.
Our body produces large amounts of the messenger substance glutamate when we are threatened, stressed or uncertain, which triggers feelings of anxiety and restlessness. GABA is an antagonist of glutamate and has a calming effect on the mind and body.
A persistent GABA deficiency with a simultaneous excess of glutamate can lead to many symptoms, such as anxiety, restlessness, stress, mood swings, sleep disorders, listlessness, muscle tension, digestive problems such as constipation.
Through the supply of GABA, the negative effect of glutamate is balanced and the body regains its equilibrium.
A 2011 study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology Review showed that the use of GABA supplements can reduce anxiety symptoms in people with anxiety disorders. Study authors concluded that GABA supplements may be a safe and effective way to counteract and prevent anxiety symptoms. 
The natural extract from lemon balm leaves has been shown in studies to have a calming and anti-anxiety effect. Its effect is due to the fact that the rosmarinic acid contained in lemon balm inhibits GABA transaminase, an enzyme that breaks down GABA, increasing GABA levels in the brain.
The lemon balm extract contained in Serenity is produced using a special extraction process that preserves all of the plant's ingredients. It is standardised to contain 2.5% rosmarinic acid, which guarantees its effectiveness.
The health claims for lemon balm have not yet been conclusively evaluated. However, due to the good study situation, the efficacy described here can be sufficiently
proven. Lemon balm ...
Lemon balm extract was tested in a study 
In a clinical trial involving 20 people aged 18 to 70, the stress-reducing effects of lemon balm extract were demonstrated. The participants, who suffered from anxiety symptoms and sleep problems, were given 300 mg of lemon balm extract twice a day for 15 days. None of the participants had any side effects.
After 2 weeks, the results were as follows:
The effect of lemon balm extract in eliminating sleep disorders and restlessness has also been recognised by the European Commission ESCOP (European Scientific Cooperative on Phytotherapy).
California poppy (Eschscholtzia californica) is one of the classics among the calming and sleep-promoting herbal agents. Especially in combination with valerian, an improvement in sleep duration and sleep efficiency has been scientifically proven. 
The health claims on the California poppy have not yet been conclusively evaluated. However, due to the good study situation, the efficacy described here can be sufficiently substantiated. California poppy ...
In a systematic review and meta-analysis, 32 studies were analysed to clarify the potential of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) for the treatment of generalised anxiety disorder. The authors concluded that a combination of hawthorn, California poppy and magnesium were superior to a placebo. 
Green tea contains the amino acid L-theanine, catchins and specifically epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). Green tea extract helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels and cardiovascular system. It helps you feel more energetic and supports your body and mind.
The amino acid L-theanine stimulates alpha waves in the brain and is also involved in the formation of the neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). Thus, L-theanine relaxes the mind, at the same time makes one concentrated and attentive, and promotes mental health.
A randomised, controlled, double-blind study investigated the extent to which green tea can improve mood swings. The results showed that in 81 healthy adults, consumption of green tea with a ratio of caffeine epigallocatechin gallate to theanine + arginine of 3.9 and 4.7 reduced susceptibility to mood swings.
Hawthorn, a tall shrub of the rose family, grows in open meadows, along roadsides, along streams and on forest edges at low to medium altitudes. While the flowers are particularly appreciated in spring, the leaves and berries are harvested in autumn.
The berries, leaves and flowers contain large amounts of flavonoid glycosides. Hawthorn is valued for helping with the physical and emotional effects of stress and insomnia.
The health claims for hawthorn have not yet been conclusively evaluated. However, due to the good study situation, the efficacy described here can be adequately substantiated. Hawthorn ...
Chamomile belongs to the daisy family and is related to other well-known wild herbs such as dandelion, marigold or mugwort. Chamomile is widely known for its calming effect, which can help you fall asleep. Science attributes this mainly to the essential oils, flavonoids, coumarins and bitter substances.
According to a study by the University of Pennsylvania, chamomile not only has a mood-lifting effect, but also helps to lower stress levels and can make it easier to fall asleep. The team of researchers who examined the randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study concluded that chamomile can have clinically significant mood-lifting effects in addition to its previously observed anxiety-relieving effects. 
The health claims for chamomile have not yet been conclusively evaluated. However, the efficacy described here can be adequately substantiated due to the good number of studies. Camomile ...
Magnesium is usually only associated with calf cramps. However, a magnesium deficiency can also lead to restlessness, poor concentration and memory, anxiety, irritability and sleep disturbances, and can promote the development of mental imbalance.
It has been shown that frequent stress (such as noise stress) can lead to increased magnesium loss, which in turn leads to increased susceptibility to stress.  Prolonged stress can therefore deplete the body's magnesium reserves and promote the development of anxiety.
Magnesium binds to GABA receptors and activates them. Among other things, magnesium is important for muscle relaxation, for the balance of the nervous system and for the production of serotonin.
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has scientifically investigated the importance of magnesium for the organism. The "EU Community Register of Nutrition and Health Claims made on Foods" confirms, among other things, the contribution of magnesium ...
Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3. It is very much involved in energy production in the body's cells and has a major impact on overall brain metabolism. Niacinamide is crucial for mental energy, motivation, concentration and memory and can delay fatigue during strenuous mental work.
Niacinamide is also involved in the production of neurotransmitters, including serotonin, which elevates mood. It also improves blood flow to the brain, providing brain cells with more oxygen and glucose to produce ATP. At the same time, niacinamide promotes the removal of waste products from the neurons.

Serenity contains pyridoxal-5-phosphate (P-5-P), the activated form of vitamin B6. Only in this active form can vitamin B6 be transported in the blood and work together with other vital substances.
By taking active pyridoxal-5-phosphate, it is not necessary for the body to activate the various forms of vitamin B6, such as pyridoxal, pyridoxine and pyridoxamine, itself in order to produce pyridoxal-5-phosphate. Thus, pyridoxal-5-phosphate is immediately available and acts more quickly.
Problems with the conversion of conventional vitamin B6 can be ruled out by taking activated pyridoxal-5-phosphate. This activation process can be limited, for example, due to a nutrient deficiency or enzyme defect, or in older people.
As a coenzyme, vitamin B6 is involved in about 100 enzymatic metabolic processes. Among other things, vitamin B6 plays a crucial role in protein and energy metabolism, contributes to the normal function of the nervous system, is involved in the production of the happiness hormone serotonin, ensures the formation of red blood pigment and helps keep homocysteine in check and supports mental health.

As an essential trace element, zinc is involved in hundreds of enzymatic reactions in the body. These include processes that affect the brain and nervous system, as well as the transmission of stimuli between nerve cells.
Zinc is also involved in the conversion of vitamin B6 into its active form
pyridoxal-5-phosphate, which is important for the formation of GABA. Therefore, zinc deficiency can lead to low GABA levels in the brain.
A study at the Research Institute in Illinois has also shown that people with anxiety generally have too little zinc and at the same time too much copper in their blood. Both trace elements are important for the production of
neurotransmitters and are absorbed via the same receptors. For an optimal
neurotransmitter, however, it is important that zinc dominates. Too much copper in the brain increases the production of the stimulating neurotransmitters epinephrine and norepinephrine and blocks the transmission of GABA, the calming neurotransmitter.

The passion flower (Passiflora incarnata) is a traditional medicinal plant divided into more than 500 different species. The best-known variety is the one that bears edible fruit. Extracts of passionflower are often used in herbal blends to promote calming and restful sleep.
Serenity is suitable for adults and adolescents. The dosage should be adjusted according to age, body weight and need. Anyone suffering from severe anxiety disorders or taking prescription substances that affect the psyche in any way should only take Serenity in consultation with their doctor.
Serenity is a high quality food supplement based on a herbal formulation and free of side effects. However, due to its relaxing effect, fatigue may occur if the dosage is too high. In this case, the dose should be reduced or Serenity should only be taken before going to bed.
Serenity can be taken daily over a long period of time if necessary, without becoming dependent on it or the effect wearing off. The intake of Serenity can be interrupted or completely stopped at any time without withdrawal symptoms.
However, anyone suffering from severe anxiety disorders or taking prescription substances should only take Serenity in consultation with their doctor. The reason for this is that the effect of these could be enhanced by the active ingredients contained in Serenity and lead to increased fatigue and side effects.
