A Guide to Supplements for Anxiety

To improve cognition / improvement of focus and mental stamina:

Alpha GPC (choline) - Stronger choline supply, compared to lecithin. It is a great ingredient for piracetam, which removes acetylcholine, and adequate delivery is maintained.

Aniracetam - Nootropic (memory / learning) supplements are especially useful when your thoughts are blurred by anxiety. Indecisiveness often causes brain fog and so I find it to be a helpful tool in learning / working. In addition, it also exhibits anxiolytic properties in laboratory mice through the action of dopamine. Take 2 - 3 750mg pills daily.

Centrophenoxine / Meclofenoxate - Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors reduce the breakdown of acetylcholine, an important transmitter involved not only in muscle function and other somatic (body) aspects, but also in cognitive processes such as memory. In addition, this supplement is proposed to cause dopamine regulation (increase in density) through a compensatory mechanism (preventing the release of dopamine that results in sensitization to the corresponding site receptors - hence the effects of this mechanism will only be felt after cessation of chronic administration). . Overall interesting nootropic, which helps with focus and integration of new information into long-term memory.

Piracetam - Another nootropic of the racetam family that increases cognition. It acts as a positive allosteric modulator of the NMDA glutamate receptor, which has been shown to be important in learning and memory. Dissociative drugs like Ketamine are NMDA antagonists that put them against piracetam and since regret is a form of separation it may prove beneficial. 1.2g - 12g is the usual dose range. Efficiency varies among individuals so you need to find the right dose for you. It combines well with Aniracetam, Lecithin, AlphaGPC, Centrophenoxine as they work synergistically.

Fatigue relief:

BCAA (Branched Amino Acids Chain) - Consists of 3 amino acids: Valin, Leucine and Isoleucine. This supplement will find its use not only in bodybuilders seeking to gain some muscle tissue, but also in those struggling with fatigue and depression. Because Amino acids are important for protein synthesis, which forms almost every cell and structure in our body, it can not hurt to prepare ourselves with the basic structure of the body. Works great in reducing fatigue / physical fatigue, which is present in depression and anxiety.

Rhodiola Rosea - A plant-based supplement, which is thought to alter the levels of serotonin and dopamine in our favor through inhibition of monoamine oxidase (a neurotransmitter breaking enzyme). This plant has been used in the Siberian and Scandinavian countries for centuries to reduce stress and depression. If it has helped the people in these quiet areas and the conditions of the property are worth not neglecting. The active ingredient of this plant, rosavin, contributes to the reduction in fatigue by increasing mental and physical stamina and making it a great help in depression and exercise.


GABA - An important supplement to control anxiety, GABA in this supplement, is unable to cross the blood-brain barrier (BBB) ​​at lower doses. However, it does not immediately calm you down (the exact mechanism has not been clarified, but as the name suggests it may be involved in GABA barrier-deletion regulators). The majority of our brains have the role of prohibiting non-productive ones, when there is a lack of inhibition and / or other symptoms that often result from information overload. Once or twice daily 750mg is sufficient (morning / evening before bedtime). This dose may be excessive, but in such cases it may have paradoxical effects and work against you with increasing anxiety.

Lecithin - Not only does it reduce the frequency and severity of migraines, but it also helps you achieve a calm state of mind. I find it remarkable in reducing the reported panic attacks along with discomfort. The cholinergic system is involved in memory and learning between various sympathetic and parasympathetic sympathies. Thus, lecithin, as the precursor to acetylcholine, will address the problem of positive defects such as brain fog.

L-theanine - Extracts from green tea that stimulate focused relaxation without making you tired or overly stimulated. Along with its nootropic nature, it is also an appropriate enhancement of mood. 400-800mg daily should do the work.

Significant improvements without sedation / stimulation:

Vitamin B - B-complex chronic supplements have been shown to reduce work-related stress in addition to alleviating confusion and depression. I recommend using a sublingual form if it is accessible due to high bioavailability. It's hard to overdo B-vitamins because they are water-soluble, so don't be afraid to include them in your daily diet.

Omega 3-6 - Also known as fish oil, this dietary supplement has many benefits for not only psychiatric patients with anxiety by reducing their symptoms, but also actively involved in the prevention of cancer, inflammation and depression.

Magnesium - Deficiencies can cause depression and anxiety so be sure to keep the right pace in the examination. Usually magnesium is contained, in sufficient amounts daily, in green vegetables, but if you need immediate help magnesium can act as a gateway to sleep and tranquility.

Zinc - The zinc level itself is irrelevant, more important is the zinc-copper ratio that determines the function necessary to maintain a healthy mindset. Low zinc: copper ratio has been linked to autism and increased violent behavior. In addition, zinc has been identified in some neurons (especially in synaptic vesicles) where it can aid cognitive function.

While supplements can be helpful in treating anxiety, they are not the only possibility and also the most effective approach to techniques such as exercise, meditation, exposure therapy, and so on. Consider supplements as a catalyst for better mental health and for maximum effects including their use in other appropriate ways to relieve anxiety.
