Natural Supplements for Anxiety

Many people who are dealing with anxiety or depression issues don’t want to end up taking prescriptions or chemical medications for any length of time. Instead they prefer to look for natural supplements for anxiety instead.

One of the most popular natural supplements for anxiety is St. John’s Wort. It has actually been shown to be extremely effective for people dealing with mild or moderate anxiety issues or depression sufferers.

Another surprising but effective natural supplement for anxiety is taking Omega 3 Fatty Acids. These are the types of acid which you find in certain fish including salmon, mackerel and tuna. Other foods that contain Omega 3 are flaxseeds and walnuts. The daily recommended dosage for Omega 3 Fatty Acids is between 2 to 3 grams.

Valerian is another well known natural supplement which treats anxiety and depression. Most people know Valerian is great for getting a good night’s sleep. If you decide to use Valerian then it is recommended that you do so for about a four to six week period. There are some known side effects associated with Valerian and they include headaches, becoming dizzy and developing digestive or stomach problems.

There are many other herbal supplements that are supposed to be helpful for dealing with anxiety and depression. It might be helpful to ask for testimonials from users of these natural supplements for anxiety. You should try to purchase a product that has been successful for other people.

Another natural aid for helping you cope with anxiety and depression is just to listen to some wonderful calming music. There are many soothing DVD’s available in many stores today, both online and offline. Listening to this type of music could really help induce a great night’s sleep.

Lavender is another natural herb that can help to relax your body. Try taking a warm bath with some lavender essence it in. Maybe while listening to your relaxing music!

No matter which natural supplements for anxiety you decide to purchase always make sure they are manufactured from a reputable company. Read the label and check the ingredient list, if there is something which you are not sure about just ask your local pharmacist for their advice. There should also be strict guidelines for taking the product safely and whatever you do don’t exceed the recommend dose.

It can be difficult trying to deal with anxiety and/or depression and using some form of natural supplements for these conditions can prove to be extremely helpful.

The lavender essence works wonders for relaxing and relieving stress. I've never used the bath essence though. The oil burner with the lavender essential oil it was I used for a while. Burn it for about a half hour a day. Worked great.
