Anxiety

Anxiety is a common mental health condition. In fact, over 33% of people will experience an anxiety disorder during their lifetime.

Anxiety disorders include generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), panic disorder with or without agoraphobia, social anxiety disorder (SAD), specific phobias, and separation anxiety disorder.

Treatment often involves psychological therapies, such as cognitive behavior therapy or medication .

However, research suggests that dietary changes, including taking certain vitamins, minerals, and other supplements, may also be helpful for people with anxiety disorders.

Supplements that May Help

Magnesium

Is an essential mineral that plays an important role in the body’s stress response.

Additionally, research suggests that magnesium supplements may be beneficial for people with anxiety and are generally safe and well tolerated.

A2017 study of 112 people with depression found that taking 248 milligrams (mg) of elemental magnesium supplements daily for 6 weeks significantly improved symptoms of depression and anxiety, compared with a control group

Vitamin D 5000

Many people are deficient in or have suboptimal levels of vitamin D, a fat-soluble nutrient that’s essential for brain function and mood regulation 

Studies show that vitamin D inadequacy or deficiency is particularly common in people with mental health conditions, including anxiety disorders.

Furthermore, research suggests that taking high doses of vitamin D may be effective in reducing the severity of anxiety symptoms in people with anxiety disorders, including those with GAD.

A 2020 study in 106 people with depression found that treatment with 1,600 IU of vitamin D per day for 6 months led to significant improvements in anxiety symptoms, compared with a control group.

Furthermore, several studies have demonstrated benefits of vitamin C supplements in people with anxiety.

Vitamin C supplements have also been shown to be effective in reducing anxiety symptoms in women and in adults with diabete

Curcumin

Is a polyphenol compound found in turmeric that’s been shown to have powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and may have antidepressant and anti-anxiety properties as well.

A 2017 study in 123 people with major depressive disorder demonstrated that those who received 500–1,000 mg of curcumin or 500 mg of curcumin combined with 30 mg of saffron per day for 12 weeks had greater improvements in anxiety symptoms than those who took a placebo..

Curcumin has also been shown to reduce anxiety in people with diabetes and in people with obesity and depression.

Multivitamins

Research suggests that multivitamin supplements may help improve anxiety symptoms.

For example, one study found that taking a multivitamin containing B vitamins, vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, and zinc for 30 days led to a significant decrease in anxiety symptoms in young adults, compared with a placebo.

Additionally, an older review of 8 studies found that treatment with multivitamin and multimineral supplements for at least 28 days reduced levels of perceived stress and anxiety in healthy people .

The review also found that supplements containing high-dose B vitamins may be more effective than those containing low doses of B vitamins.

Ashwagandha

(Withania somnifera) is an herb used in Ayurveda, a form of alternative medicine with roots in India. It’s an adaptogenic herb with a long history of use as a treatment for anxiety. Many of the active compounds in ashwagandha have been shown to have anti-stress, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties.

A recent small study found that healthy adults taking 600 mg of ashwagandha daily for 8 weeks had significantly reduced cortisol (stress hormone) levels, perceived stress scores, and reduced anxiety levels, compared with those taking the placebo or a lower dose.
