Universal Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of Stresnil, is a relatively young pharmaceutical company established in 1990 but it enjoys much success and is already exporting its pro-biotic and herbal products in countries from five of the six continents.
According to the manufacturer of Stresnil, this is a poly herbal formulation which helps alleviate stress related symptoms and other various mind and body disorders like sleep deprivation, fatigue, poor memory, anxiety. However, there is no research cited to back up the claims.
