Managing anxiety naturally

Managing anxiety naturally | Mr Vitamins
Is anxiety ruling your life? Most of us will experience anxiety briefly at one time or another during our lifetime. Feeling anxious is your body’s normal response to a stressful event such as a relationship breakup, poor health, going for a job interview or public speaking. Anxiety is ‘fear based’ and revolves around worry, feeling apprehensive or anticipation of impending danger.

Stress and anxiety

Stress can be helpful and allows you to adapt to your internal or external environment, helping you cope to any number of situations. Changing a stressful situation changes your response to it. Problems arise when anxiety, worry or fear continue long after the initial stressor has passed, adversely impacting your normal day to day life. High circulating levels of epinephrine and cortisol, due to long-term stress, can create an imbalance within your brain chemistry including serotonin, GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), dopamine and norepinephrine (noradrenaline) leading to overactivity of the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and hyperactivity of our ‘fight or flight’ response and anxiety.

Cause of anxiety is not fully understood

The cause of anxiety disorders is not fully understood although imbalances in brain chemistry, nutritional deficiencies, medications, trauma and medical conditions have been implicated. Women are twice as likely to develop an anxiety disorder with symptoms typically beginning in the teens and twenties. Anxiety can trigger emotional responses; apprehension, uncertainty, fear, worry, over-excitability, distress and physical symptoms; stomach upsets, nausea, sweating, increased heart rate, feeling short of breath, restlessness, insomnia and fatigue

Manage anxiety naturally with clinically trialled KSM-66® Withania extract

KSM-66®has been clinically trialled (randomised double-blind placebo-controlled) to reduce stress and anxiety and improve general wellbeing in adults. 64 healthy adults with a history of chronic stress were assigned to either the KSM-66®treatment group (1 capsule, twice daily after food containing 300mg of a concentrated 12.5:1 extract or 3.75g) or placebo group for a period of 60 days. The KSM-66® group demonstrated a significant reduction in scores on all stress-assessment scales (eg: depression anxiety stress scale: 77% reduction for depression, 75.6% for anxiety and 64.2% for stress) on day 60, relative to the placebo group (5.2% reduction for depression, -4.3% for anxiety and 10.4% for stress) respectively. Serum cortisol concentrations were also significantly reduced in the KSM-66®group.
