  • Did You Know... Tranquility™

    By Shawn Freedman, Product Development Manager



    Did you know that the word Nervine refers to an herb that provides a beneficial effect on the nervous system?

    Nervines have a long history of successful use within traditional medical systems to promote relaxation and alleviate stress, anxiety, and insomnia without adverse effects. Natura’s Tranquility™ formula contains several classic botanical nervines and is specifically designed to calm, tonify, and regenerate the nervous system.

    There are three main types of herbal nervines; tonics, relaxants, and stimulants. Since many herbs are dynamic “multi-taskers” that offer a variety of therapeutic benefits, additional subcategories and secondary actions exist and overlap is common. That being said, Tranquility™ features primarily tonic and relaxant nervines, so we will focus the discussion on the core elements of those two classes of herbs.

    Nervine tonics
    Nervine tonics are nutritive herbs that slowly nourish, strengthen, and regenerate the nervous system over time. This group is well indicated for restoring nervous system function and resiliency when damaged by stress, shock, or physical injury, as well as general nervous debility. A premier example of a nervine tonic herb contained in Tranquility™ would be Avena sativa (Milky Oats).

    Nervine relaxants
    Nervine relaxants are herbs that exert a calming effect on excited nerves. These botanicals are very useful for easing both physical and mental tension. Herbs in this category can offer immediate relief to anxiety, muscle tension, insomnia, “mental chatter” and nervousness. Scutellaria lateriflora (Skullcap) and Piper methysticum (Kava) are two prime examples of relaxant nervines featured in Tranquility™.

    In addition to its potent nervine effect, Tranquility™ also promotes GABA (gamma amino butyric acid) production and possesses adaptogenic qualities to improve attention, cognitive function, and mental performance during stress, and reduce post-stress fatigue. For more information on Tranquility’s™ ingredients and formula rationale please see the TranquilityApplied Research and References Paper and Product Sheet.
