Anxiety: the unwanted companion.
Forty million adults in the US experience anxiety. For some, anxiety feels like looping thoughts and worry. For others, it’s nervousness or the sense the world is moving too fast (or too slow). You might even experience anxiety more as a physical sensation: choking, tingling, numbness, tightness in your chest, etc. However it manifests, if you experience anxiety, there’s a good chance you don’t feel like yourself.
Why do I feel so anxious?
Everyone experiences some anxiety day-to-day. If you experience chronic anxiety, you may have an anxiety condition. These conditions often do not have one singular root cause but several influencing factors combined. These factors include a family history of mental health conditions, personality traits, physical health problems, and the obvious—ongoing stressful events. The causes of anxiety can be hard to pin down, but you don’t have to resign yourself to anxious feelings.
The top 5 natural supplements for anxiety.
Coping with anxiety doesn’t have to mean prescription pills. Nature offers plenty of supplements to provide anxiety relief.
CBD - Organically grown CBD isolate promotes relaxation and minimizes stress. What’s more, studies have shown that CBD interacts with the parts of the brain that regulate fear and anxiety-induced behaviors to such a degree that it can be considered effective as a treatment for multiple anxiety disorders.
Magnesium - Magnesium is involved in over 300 essential functions in the body, one of which is neurotransmitter health. It is believed that magnesium affects the hypothalamus, the part of your brain which regulates the glands responsible for your response to stress, which helps in reducing anxiousness and improving an overall sense of calm.
Ashwagandha - If you’re familiar with Ayurveda, a whole-body healing system from India—one of the world’s oldest, you’ve likely heard of the herb Ashwagandha. This powerful root adaptogen has been proven to lower cortisol levels (that’s your stress hormone) and lower anxiety, depression, and stress levels.
Cordyceps - This medicinal mushroom aids the body’s stress response and regulates anxiety by stimulating the adrenal glands and modulating the nervous system.
Kava Kava - Kava is a plant that grows in tropical weather, specifically on the Pacific Coast. The Kava has traditionally been used to brew a ceremonial drink and as an herbal remedy. Modern researchers have identified an active ingredient called ‘kavain’ that affects mood receptors to relieve stress and anxiety. Some research even supports Kava Kava as a treatment for generalized anxiety disorder.
