Anxiety Relief Supplements
Anxiety is characterised by the worry or irrational fear that something bad will happen. It is a remnant of our evolutionary past (when humans were more at threat from wild animals and natural disaster) and is a normal stress response, observed in all other animals. It can become a debilitating condition if the anxiety appears in response to normal, 'non-threatening' situations. This form of anxiety disorder places a sufferer into a tense or nervous state of mind, constantly expecting something terrible to happen to them whether physically or emotionally. Symptoms of anxiety disorders often place the afflicted into a chronic state of unease making it difficult for them to concentrate. On top of this they are often irritable, have tense muscles and difficulties sleeping. The main symptom is an inability to overcome the irrational urge to be worried about ‘everything.’

Anxiety is characterised by the worry or irrational fear that something bad will happen. It is a remnant of our evolutionary past (when humans were more at threat from wild animals and natural disaster) and is a normal stress response, observed in all other animals. It can become a debilitating condition if the anxiety appears in response to normal, 'non-threatening' situations. This form of anxiety disorder places a sufferer into a tense or nervous state of mind, constantly expecting something terrible to happen to them whether physically or emotionally.
Symptoms of anxiety disorders often place the afflicted into a chronic state of unease making it difficult for them to concentrate. On top of this they are often irritable, have tense muscles and difficulties sleeping. The main symptom is an inability to overcome the irrational urge to be worried about ‘everything.’ Allopathic medicine attempts to alleviate anxiety with a myriad of psychoactive drugs that manipulate the mechanism of action of neurotransmitter signalling. These medications either bind directly to the neurotransmitter receptors hereby activating or blocking them. Sometimes they also increase the existing amounts of neurotransmitters available through the feedback loop. It is important to mention that psychoactive drugs do not address the underlying cause of the anxiety.
The underlying cause usually relates to an imbalance in certain hormonal and metabolic indicators that our bodies express in an attempt to adapt to chronic stress. Elevated homocysteine and sex hormone levels are an important indicator that mainstream physicians often overlook. Anxiety is a very complex disorder, and must be addressed as such in order to achieve any form of symptomatic relief. Dietary supplementation with omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids as found in fish oil and flaxseed oil support proper neurological function. Magnesium and natural herbs like rhodiola together with a healthy eating regime and certain stress management techniques can help optimize the body’s stress response.
Supplementing with B vitamins and certain amino acids may help provide the nutrients required by the body to promote proper neurotransmitter signalling and also synthesis of receptors. St John's wort and also aromatherapy with essential oils (e.g. frankincense) may help calm the mind and ease the symptoms of nervousness.
Supplementing with SAM-e may also be effective at relieving symptoms of low mood and anxiety.

Great for the blues
Fantastic product. Was in the habit of crying most days and thinking life was a pile of shite but since taking St Johns Wort the sun has come out again, I am feeling optimistic and am moving forward once again. Would recommend if you are going through a tough time and feeling down. I take this with B complex and magnesium.
Best on the market
I have been taking these for over 6 months now and they've helped me a lot. They are way better than anti depressants and with no side effects. I would highly recommend them if your after something natural.
Helped Lift My Stubborn Depression and Ease Anxiety Attacks
I am so grateful for this product. I couldn't shake a depressive episode for over a month and started taking Thompson's SJW One-A-Day in early January. The results were felt within a day of taking this herb. I really recommend this product. My mood has been stable for two months and my anxiety has been much more manageable for me to cope with. I will continue taking this product as part of my wellness plan. Thank you Healthpost.
