Silexan is a new, German-developed lavender oil supplement formula that has proved very effective in the treatment of anxiety disorders. It has been clinically proven to have a good anxiolytic effect and is useful for those suffering from anxiety-related disturbed sleep. Lavender oil is an ingredient that has been used extensively for therapeutic purposes and aromatherapy. Silexan provides these natural remedies in the form of a capsule that can be orally administered.

A Brief History of Silexan

Though lavender has been commonly used in aromatherapy and stress relief, the capsule form of medication is relatively new. These capsules contain lavender oil with a high amount of linalool and linalyl acetate. Clinical tests and comparison studies with Lorazepam (Ativan) have shown that this natural medication is just as effective for generalized anxiety disorder. It is marketed in Germany under the brand name Lasea and is also available in many herbal products in the US.

How Does Silexan Work?

The narrow leafed English Lavender is used in the preparation of Silexan. It is grown in Provence, France and the final product is obtained through steam distillation after harvesting. Each capsule contains 80mg of lavender along with other natural ingredients. Silexan is a very effective medication as it does not act as a tranquilizer but rather focuses on improving the balance of the nervous system. There is no risk of addiction, tiredness or lingering drowsiness. Treating anxiety with Silexan is proving to be one of the most effective ways to combat this problem.

People who have used the medication have found much needed relief for depression, panic disorders and anxiety attacks. The fact that it is a completely natural, herbal compound adds to its appeal among consumers. Studies have shown that Silexan leads to a significant improvement in mental and physical health. It is also safe for daily usage. A soft capsule that can be orally ingested, one capsule per day is the standard recommendation. Use water to swallow the capsule easily. Many feel that this could be a breakthrough drug in the treatment of anxiety disorders and ailments.

Side Effects

No major side effects have been observe in clinical trials or among regular users. There is no unwanted sedative or drug-specific effect. It has also been shown that there is absolutely no risk of addiction and is completely safe. The only observable side effects seem to be “lingering lavender smell” and “mild stomach discomfort.” But, then again, these effects are very mild and dissipate very quickly, and are absolutely preferable to the side effects of the average benzodiazepine.

Where to Buy

The Lasea brand is available only in Germany at the present moment. However, a number of supplement manufacturers in the United States provide their Silexan-based products. One manufacturer in particular, Integrative Therapeutics, provides a Silexan-based supplement called “Lavela WS 1265.” To learn more about Lavela WS and to purchase it, click the button below.

    Has any research been done regarding use of 240 mg of Silexan for anxiety? Would this be considered safe? The 160 mg is not quite enough for me.

      Hi Jean,

      Unfortunately, I’m not too sure about the maximum dose – it’s going to depend on the specific supplement, too.

      I highly recommend consulting with your doctor or another healthcare professional about the recommended dose or alternatives that might prove more effective in the long term.

      Best wishes,
      Ezra

    Ananda apothecary carries an ingestible lavender, 3 drops is 89 mg. I put three drops into a regular gelatin capsule at time of use, easy to swallow. It works great in about 20 mins! I’ve been house and bed bound for over a year from anxiety due to Pyroluria and Undermethylation. I’m finally on the proper nutrient protocol (pfeifer/Walsh) and cannot take synthetic drugs.
    This discovery is ….ineffable! Talk about smoothing ruffled feathers and spiked fur!
    Simple to make your own and titrate your own dosage. 3 drops = 80 mg. btw I’m not a rep for ananda…I buy from them because of quality, research, and way way way cheaper than Young essential oils, which is mlm.

    is it ok to take 150mg of L-theanine along with the 80mg of Silexan?

  4. Anonymous says:

    I am currently taking calm-aid from nature’s way, which contains silexan.

    I felt a reduction in anxiety shortly after my first dose. A couple times I got severe runs, so I’m taking the dose with extra water and food. I have noticed a change in my vision (blurry vision), but it clears up after a while.

    I take one pill in the a.m. Today, I was extremely drowsy. So, I’m going to start taking the dose at night.

    I’m hoping this works, because I prefer something that works quickly and is not addictive.

    Studies I’ve read about only covered 80mg and 160mg….I think the study was for 60 days and was very effective.

    I live in Arizona not in Germany. Here isn’t anywhere else I could buy this product from?
