Give These Natural
Supplements for Anxiety Relief a Try!

After doing some research, I was led to these natural anxiety remedies.  You can use them in addition to therapy and self-help techniques to manage symptoms. 

5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan)

This supplement helps to increase the brain chemical serotonin which is responsible for regulating mood, appetite, sleep.  DON'T take 5-HTP with anti-anxiety and antidepressant drugs.  This article provides more info on 5-HTP.  Adults can take 50-100 mg 2x daily. 

L-Theanine

Ever notice how Zen you feel after drinking a cup of green tea?  You can thank L-Theanine for that.   This is an amino acid that naturally occurs in green tea and acts as an  anxiety soother.  L-Theanine can also help with insomnia.  Adults can take up to 400 mg daily.

Kava

Panic attacks  got you down? Kava can help with this as well as overall anxiety.  But you can't use alcohol when taking this herb.  Also, remember to talk to your doctor about taking Kava if you're already taking medication.  Adults can take 200-250 mg 3x daily.

Magnesium 

This mineral is vital for relaxing muscles and calming your nervous system. 

But be careful,  taking too much magnesium, like more than 600mg a day, can cause diarrhea.  I have good results with taking 400mg-600mg of magnesium day. 

I also found that I got a better night's sleep whenever I took magnesium at bedtime.

What's the best form of magnesium?  Look for magnesium chelate on the label.  It works best because it is highly absorbable by the body.

You can also use an absorbable form of magnesium called magnesium chloride oil. Simply rub it into your skin, and the magnesium will absorb transdermally into your blood stream.   So if you struggle with digestive issues, this form of magnesium may be your best bet.

Omega 3 Fatty Acids

Are crucial for helping to stabilize mood and reduce inflammation in the body.  What's more, omega-3 fats act as brain food because it contains the compound DHA that enhances brain function and stabilizes mood.

Valerian Root

This herb is perfect for anxiety-ridden insomniacs. So great in fact that it's been successfully used for centuries.  Valerian root doesn't have the best scent, so it's best taken in pill form if you're sensitive to strong smells.

Lemon Balm

Ok, this plant may not taste like lemons, but it's definitely a balm for anxiety.  Lemon Balm may also help calm anxiety related pain and digestive complaints.  You will most likely find this herb in teas along with valerian root.

Fun fact: Lemon Balm often goes by the following goes undercover identities:

•Melissa officinalis,  this is its official, scientific name

•Bee balm

•Garden balm

If you're pregnant  or taking medication please consult your physician and/or a certified naturopathic doctor before taking any of these natural supplements for anxiety relief.


I hope this article helps you on your journey to better mental health!
