Mate I suffer anxiety. Well social anxiety to be exact. A mate of mine suffers from a heart problem and a brain problem. Any amount of stress for him
gives him a massive migraine and could seriously do him some harm. He's quite lucky to be alive actually.
I actually take this thing when i'm in social situations like at work and even visiting friends or relations...
It's made by Ethical Nutrients and it's called "Stress and anxiety relief" witht he main ingredient being LactiumPURE which is derived from cows milk,
but can still be taken by those who require lactose free diets. I find that one tablet helps me for about 4 hours. I basically take one at the start
of my work shift and one at half time. It makes a noticable difference to me.
Now, my mate who has those heart and brain issues. Well he suggested I start taking some of the things he takes.
So I ordered the same stuff because he basically tries to make his body not as stressed. Avoid stress is his answer.
So he has me taking Magnesium capsules. It helps relax muscles and is needed by more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. One in the morning,
once at night.
L-Theanine - 1 at night. This does relaxation without drowsiness. Reduces stress and tension. It's an amino acid derived from green tea. It also
apparently produces a bit of Gaba in the brain.
I also take GABA - which is also an natural thing in the brain. Natural Calming effect. Promotes relaxation and eases nervous tension.
Zinc Picolinate - It supports enzyme function but also zinc is good for muscles, skin. It's an essential mineral that plays a role inn enzyme
functions and is found inthe liver, brain,
He told me to take this thing called 5-htp, about once a week, but i find I get a headache from that so I stopped taking it. It supports a positive
mood and is a precursor to seratonin.
I have to say. Once I started taking all that, MY GOD my body and muscles were so relaxed!!! I'm so much more stress free and chilled out than I used
I highly recommend it.
He also started taking Lithium Oratate recently, It's a naturally occuring trace mineral found in things like whole grains, and vegetables. He highly
recommends that too. I havn't tried that yet, but I just got some today so I'll give it a whirl.
Anyways. Just letting you know that they helped me and could help you to.
So de-stressed. Take care.
Oh yeah, he cant have caffeine either. But I have caffeine.
