In Germany, every second person has sleep problems with different forms: Every second German suffers from sleep problems, a representative survey of 1950 people in Germany found.

On behalf of the magazine "Apotheken Umschau", the Nuremberg market research institute GfK carried out the survey in Germany with the sensational result. Of the 1950 respondents, 1,081 indicated that they suffered from sleep problems - that is 55.4 percent.

Most of them have trouble falling asleep. Over a third of those affected cannot sleep through the night and wake up more frequently at night and early in the morning.

This naturally leads to performance and concentration problems during the day, because our organism needs the nightly rest phase for regeneration. For example, around a fifth of those surveyed stated that they were not focused and tired during the day. One in four feels "smashed" when they get up.

In our organism there is a nervous system that consists of two parts that have opposite functions. One part is more active during the day and when stressed (sympathetic nervous system). While the other part (parasympathetic nervous system) directs more inward processes (e.g. digestion) and nightly regeneration. Both parts are normally in dynamic balance in our body.

It is generally assumed that in western industrialized countries in particular, an imbalance, at the expense of the parasympathetic nervous system, leads to an overshoot of the sympathetic system due to long periods of stress and overstimulation of stimuli, which can lead to sleep disorders.
