Herbal Anti-Anxiety Supplements

Herbs and other natural remedies are becoming an increasingly popular alternative to prescription drugs for the treatment of anxiety. While anti-anxiety medications do work well, they can often be habit-forming or cause side effects, whereas herbal anti-anxiety medicines are considered safer and typically do not lead to dependence or addiction. But because the FDA does not thoroughly evaluate all natural treatments, most of the herbal anti-anxiety medicines on the market simply are not effective.

But certain herbs do exhibit potent anti-anxiety effects, and a handful of herbal anti-anxiety medicines have been proven to effectively relieve anxiety when manufactured properly and administered in the proper dosages. The herbal anti-anxiety medicines most likely to successfully relieve your anxiety are those containing herbs backed by solid clinical research (i.e. shown to effectively reduce anxiety in multiple well-designed studies). And it's absolutely critical to take an herbal anti-anxiety treatment that provides herbal extracts in the proven doses and potencies.

Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) is one herb shown to relieve anxiety in clinical trials. Standardized Valerian extracts with a minimum of 0.8% valerenic acid, the active constituent, work best. Valerian extract works rapidly, often in less than an hour, when taken in doses of a few hundred milligrams, and can be taken up to three or four times per day.

L-theanine, an amino acid derived from Green Tea, is another herbal anti-anxiety treatment with a significant anti-anxiety effect. Many people report that L-theanine works as well as prescription anti-anxiety medications, but L-theanine is not addictive or habit-forming. Quite a few herbal anti-anxiety medicines claim to contain "L-theanine" but actually contain a low-quality Green Tea extract with only a small amount of L-theanine, so make sure that you take an herbal anti-anxiety treatment with 98% or 99% pure L-theanine (such as SunTheanine®).

Studies also suggest that Passion Flower (Passiflora incarnata) is effective for anxiety and related conditions. As with Valerian, it's important to use a standardized Passion Flower extract with at least 3-4% vitexin. An herbal anti-anxiety treatment that combines Passion Flower and Valerian extracts will be more effective than either herb taken alone.
