What nutrition is good for Emotional Stress?


January can be a difficult time of the year, which comes after the most wonderful time of the year. Doctors prescribe anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medication more than ever at this time of the year which do not resolve these issues. Plants, herbs, vitamins and minerals can address these issues naturally.


In addition, people's nervous systems have been on edge over the last 18 months, whether consciously or subconsciously. Even more so, higher brain function shuts down when in a constant state of fear with ever moving goal posts, changing guidance and uncertainty about the future.


Some examples of nutrition for emotional stress that can support you are listed below. (I use brands Lily & Loaf, Cytoplan, Nutri Advanced, Specialist Herbal Supplies, Metabolics, Epigenetics and Higher Nature):


Nutricalm

For severe symptoms of stress, emotional, panicky, depressed and/or not sleeping. Very high dose B Complex with Vitamin C and Camomile.


Chinese Herb and Mineral Blend

Essential for good brain function and clear thinking.


Ashwaganda

An adaptogen that reduces stress and anxiety.

Nervous and immune support, gives energy and stamina. Support for people frayed around the edges.

Supports nervous system and brain by supporting circulation to the brain. Helps with panic and depressed feeling. For those that feel anxious, flat or down. Supports memory, clear thinking, concentration, brain detoxification.

Gota Kola

Encourages circulation of blood to the brain which supports brain function and memory.


Hops, Valerian & Passionflower

Valerian is where Valium got its name. It is good for the nervous system. It is calming and aids sleep.


Rhodiola

5HTP

Natural precursor to serotonin - our natural happiness neurotransmitter. It also helps to switch the brain off at night, so 5HTP can help us sleep soundly and be in a good mood, free of anxiety.

All of these supplements have their benefits for your emotional health but taking all of them would be expensive and some might actually not be beneficial for you right now. Furthermore, some preparations of nutritional supplements may be better suited to you than others.
