With many methods of natural anxiety relief on the market, it is helpful to look at a few of the most popular.
It is worth remembering that we all react to medicines, both traditional and modern, in different ways, so it might take time to find the right one for you.
One of the most popular brands for temporary relief of symptoms associated with stress is Kalms (based on traditional use only), which offers a variety of products, such as Kalms Day tablets and Kalms Night tablets.
There are many other brands of valerian tablets out there, including Holland & Barrett’s own range, which includes passion flower extract.
This traditional herbal medicinal product is used for the temporary relief of sleep disturbances due to symptoms of mild anxiety (based on traditional use only).
Passion flower for anxiety has been used throughout the ages.
Rhodiola is another ancestral remedy that comes most often as a tablet.
This traditional herbal medicinal product is used for the temporary relief of symptoms associated with stress, such as fatigue, exhaustion and mild anxiety (based on traditional use only).
St John’s wort is a plant that has traditionally been used to relieve symptoms of low mood and mild anxiety (based on traditional use only) and there is some scientific evidence to back this up.
However, it’s worth bearing in mind that the tablets can interact with other medications, including the contraceptive pill, so a discussion about St John’s wort with your doctor prior to starting it is advised by the NHS.
