Stress and Anxiety

Restore Your Ability to Manage Stress

with Stress-reducing Supplements

You can help restore balance in your body by taking

nutritional supplements, because they provide nutrients that are

often depleted during stressful times. Make sure you are taking

a good multivitamin everyday, adding individual supplements from

the following list.

B-complex vitamins (thiamine, riboflavin,

niacin, B5, B6, folic acid, biotin, PABA, B12, choline, and inositol).

Deficiencies in B-vitamin complex have been associated with anxiety.

Take 25-100 mg during the day.

Vitamin E (as d-alpha-tocopherol) normalizes

the level of central nervous system neurotransmitters. It is particularly

effective for women executives in their 50s at the peak of their

careers who cannot afford to have their days disrupted by unstable

emotions. Take 400-2000 IU daily.

Magnesium helps to produce ATP, the energy

currency of our cells. Take 400-750 mg of magnesium aspartate daily.

Calcium combats stress, nervous tension,

anxiety and even muscle cramps. Taken at night along with magnesium,

it helps you to have a restful sleep—and it’s good for your

bones. Take 800-1500 mg daily.

Potassium enhances your energy and vitality.

Potassium aspartate has been shown to reduce fatigue after five

or six weeks of constant use. If you’re drinking a lot of coffee

and alcohol, you’re losing a lot of your needed potassium in your

urine. Take 100-300 mg daily.

Chromium helps maintain stable blood sugar

levels. Take as chromium picolinate, 100-400 mcg daily.

Selenium enhances the action of vitamin

E and improves mood. Take 50-150 mcg daily.
