Reduce Stress and Anxiety Naturally
It’s almost time for the holidays and this time of year can be a lot of fun with celebrations and family. I think everybody would have a much better time if we could just relax and enjoy ourselves and our families instead of stressing out. We all go through times of excess stress and anxiety, a little bit can be positive, too much can be overwhelming and unhealthy. Unfortunately there is also a lot of extra stress and anxiety that goes along with the Holidays.
Supplements vs Drugs
I would like to share some of my favorite natural supplements for dealing with stress and anxiety. The reason I prefer natural supplements over drugs to deal with these kind of problems is that I believe supplements have much less side effects. I have been using all of these supplements personally for many years and have never experienced any adverse effects from them. The first natural supplement for anxiety and stress relief I’m going to share is L-Theanine.
L-Theanine and Caffeine
Suntheanine is the best brand of L-Theanine, in my opinion, because it is the only brand to use a patented bio-fermentation process mimicking the natural process of green tea which ensures that their L-Theanine is pure. Suntheanine achieved GRAS (generally recognized as safe) status in 2007, allowing it to be used as a food and beverage ingredient in amounts of up to 250 milligrams per serving, without any limit on servings. Other brands of theanine can be either chemically produced or made as an extract of green tea and are generally less expensive than Suntheanine , however they are usually a mixture of both the L-Theanine and D-Theanine isomers, making them unable to be absorbed properly.
The next natural anxiety and stress relief supplement I’m going to share to share is Gaba.
