Beat anxiety with this proven natural duo

0 Comments

People who suffer with anxiety know exactly how crippling this disorder can be. It’s a mental health issue that affects millions of people all over the world. Unfortunately, the mainstream has been letting these people down by prescribing antidepressants.

Numerous studies have shown that antidepressants aren’t always effective at treating depression, let alone anxiety. Plus, they come with some really awful side effects like weight gain, loss of libido, and even suicidal thoughts… and some even cause anxiety. Needless to say, many people end up worse off for having taken prescription antidepressants.

Quick and simple relief

The good news is that there are natural solutions that could prove helpful, and that often work very quickly.

One of them is the mineral magnesium, which many people (especially people suffering from stress or anxiety) are deficient in. Magnesium exhibits a calming effect on your nervous system, and it’s commonly used in even more mainstream psychiatric treatments, although many general practitioners are still not very well educated on it.

Magnesium has been the subject of a great deal of research, including a well-known study out of France that showed it was effective in reducing anxiety.

L-theanine is another supplement worth trying. It’s inexpensive, you can find it anywhere, and it works quickly. It contains the same compound you’ll find in a relaxing cup of green tea.

This herbal remedy works by increasing levels of dopamine and GABA in your brain. And even the fairly mainstream Cleveland Clinic acknowledges that L-theanine is effective for anxiety.

The best part about L-theanine is that you can often feel a difference in a matter of minutes, not days or weeks.
