best herbs for anxiety

We’ve talked quite a bit about drug-free, natural ways to manage anxiety and panic attacks on our blog. Our advice is always to treat the problem holistically – consider the food you eat, the exercise you get (or don’t get), and the way you live your life.

Even if you’re doing everything right, we understand that sometimes it’s not enough.

Many turn to prescription drugs to provide the extra support they need, but we believe that there’s often a safer, better choice.

If you’ve been to the doctor to address anxiety or panic, chances are that you were prescribed – or at least pitched — antidepressants (SSRIs) or a class of sedative drugs called benzodiazepines. While both can be effective options, they often have serious drawbacks, including:

  • dependence/addiction,
  • sexual dysfunction,
  • weight gain,
  • and a range of other health and cognitive complications.

Even if you find the side effects unpleasant enough to quit taking a benzodiazepine or SSRI, you cannot stop taking them without experiencing withdrawal symptoms. Even if you don’t become psychologically addicted to these drugs, your body will become dependent.

To help with withdrawal and to even go the entire natural anxiety relief route, many turn to a number of herbs for anxiety. Some of the best herbs for anxiety and panic attacks are used worldwide. They often come with the benefit of having no harsh side effects or risks of addiction.

Natural, herbal anxiety supplements, based on ancient medicinal knowledge, can be invaluable in offering support.

Here are some of the best herbs for anxiety and panic attacks.

 

1. Ashwagandhaashwagandha, anxiety treatment, well being, anxiety relief

Ashwagandha is a popular herb in Ayurvedic medicine. It is known to protect the nervous system and relieve anxiety. Many studies have confirmed its anxiety-fighting properties. They have also proved Ashwagandha as a powerful immune-system booster that may even have anti-aging effects.

2. Brahmi (Bacopa Monnieri)

Brahmi (Bacopa Monnieri), native to India, is another herb that has been used in Ayurvedic medicine. It have been used for hundreds of years to treat anxiety and cognitive function. Brahmi improves impulse transmission between nerve cells in the brain. Studies have shown that it raises IQ and improves concentration. Brahmi also increases serotonin levels in the brain, leading to relaxation and reduced anxiety.

3. Ginkgo Biloba

Ginkgo Biloba gained popularity for its memory-enhancement benefits in the elderly, but its uses are many and varied. Research has suggested that it may be a great herb for anxiety as well! In one study, patients given gingko saw roughly the same benefit(s) as the group given benzodiazepines.

4. Gotu Kola

For thousands of years in China, India, and Indonesia, gotu kola has been used to treat a number of conditions. Its uses run the gamut from skin problems, epilepsy, fever, and even syphilis. A class of chemicals found in gotu kola, known as triterpenoids, are said to possibly have anxiety-reducing properties.

5. L-Theanine

L-theanine is an amino acid found in green tea. It has been proven to reduce anxiety and improve mood. Like most herbs for anxiety, our ancestors understood L-theanine’s benefits long before modern science was able to back it up. Buddhist monks have credited green tea for their ability to sit calmly for hours of meditation.

6. Passionflowerpassion flower

Passionflower is an herb native to the Southern United States that has been used for centuries as asafe and gentle sedative. It is is one of the herbs for anxiety that has been shown to have effects comparable to benzodiazepines. It works by increasing levels of the neurotransmitter GABA, which produces a calming effect in the brain. Passionflower is considered milder than some of the other well-known anti-anxiety herbs, and is safe to use in combination with a number of different herbal anxiety remedies.

7. Valerian Root

This herb hails from the same botanical family as chamomile, another anti-anxiety herb. Valerian root is native to many regions of the world. Valerian has been used to treat anxiety for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine. In addition to anxiety, Valerian is commonly used as a natural sleep aid. It has an exceptional safety record, with virtually no side effects beyond drowsiness.

If you’re hesitant to start or continue taking prescription medication to help manage your anxiety symptoms, we encourage you to look into any and all of these wonderful herbs for anxiety.

Remember that even with the best herbs for anxiety and panic attacks, they only will work best in combination with a holistic lifestyle. Be sure to always consult your doctor about any possible drug interactions.

  6. Is tranquility addictive? Like other medicines in the market? Do you have instances where people took this for a prescribed period and now don’t need any medications?

    1. Thank you for writing in! Tranquilene Total Calm is an all-natural herbal supplement designed to correct the chemical imbalances that contribute to anxiety. By restoring this balance and control, the symptoms of stress, panic, and anxiety become manageable as they naturally occur.

      Tranquilene, while promoting calm and balance, is not addictive and you shouldn’t experience any side effects when going off them. It is an all natural supplement and many of the ingredients are already nutrients the body needs to fight anxiety on its own.

      We can’t say for sure how Tranquilene will work for you, because everyone’s body is different and results can be specific to the individual, but what we do know is that Tranquilene is intended to work in two ways; for immediate relief and long term mood support. While some customers see relief in the first 30 minutes, first hour, or few days, the maximum benefits of the formula are usually seen after 3-4 months when taken consistently. Some customers continue with the same routine after 3-4 months, some people cut back the dosage a little and continue, some people stop and then restart later, however you see fit.

      1. So your company has a 60 day money back guarantee which sounds pretty good.
        However, when you wrote in your comment that the maximum benefit is usually seen
        after 3-4 months, what good is a 60 day guarantee when many customers will not even be sure if your product is working for them. It seems as if a reputable company with a product they believe in would give a long enough guarantee so the customer knows whether or not the product works before the guarantee period runs out.

        1. Great question Paul! We can’t say for sure how Tranquilene will work for each person, because everyone’s body is different and results can be specific to the individual, but what we do know is that Tranquilene is intended to work in two ways: for *immediate relief* and *long term* mood support.

          While some customers see the *immediate relief* in the first 30 minutes, first hour, or few days, the *maximum* benefits of the formula are usually seen after 3-4 months when taken consistently.

  7. Dear Sir/Madam, I want to buy tranquilene and some other products. But when I started to fill in the application in your web for the order I found that teh adress#1 has not suficient space to write in it my full address. I wonder ,why.

    1. Hello. Thanks for writing in!

      Legally we cannot give you specific medical advice, only suggestions from the research and experience we have.

      When it comes to stress, panic, and anxiety, there is no “cure.” One needs to approach them from a holistic point of view. One should alter all sides of their life to help. I.e., nutritionally (with herbal supplements like Tranquilene), psychologically (mantras and outlook on life), diet, physical exercise, and more.

      We hope this helps you on your journey!

      Warm Regards.

  11. Hi,

    I am also suffering with anxiety from last couple of years. It was horrible initially and I got admitted couple of time in hospital and doctor done all tests related to heart, brain, stomach etc but did not find anything. Luckily, a psychiatric was available in emergency room when I got admitted and he told me that I was suffering with anxiety and panic attacks. He treated me with Pexep 12.5 cr for 7-8 months which improved my condition significantly but its not gone completely. I am not taking it anymore now. My problem is that I feel tingling and tightness on both side of my face, it get worse towards evening. It makes me very discomfort and I have constant feeling that something is going to happen with my face. Its very very bad feeling. Also my sleep is extremely bad, its not sound sleep. I wake up in every hour or two which make my next day terrible, I feel restless throughout the day. Currently I am trying Gingko which someone recommended but I have not seen any improvement, however its only week I started taking in.

    I feel helpless and don;t know what to do.

    Do you think Tranquilene Total Calm will help me with my problem? Will I get a sound sleep. Also, please tell from where I can purchase this product in India?

    Thank you.

  13. Solomn Greatings,

    I usualy take greater amounts sometimes up to double the recomended dosage,

    since i am a 8 ft and Hurly like a LumberJack!

    So , i want to know what are the overdose symptoms with this product.
    thank you kindly

    1. Hello! Thank you for writing in.

      The recommended dosage is two capsules taken with water, either both in the morning, or one in the morning and one in the early afternoon – as you see fit. For maximum effectiveness, we recommend taking it 20 to 30 minutes before breakfast and/or lunch.

      It is not recommended that you exceed three capsules at a time or four in one day. Exceeding the maximum dosage is not dangerous, though it may lead to excessive effects.
