Many people suffer from anxiety, but what is it? Anxiety is closely tied to fear. While fear is an emotional response to either a real or perceived danger, anxiety is the anticipation of a future threat in the absence of true danger. Anxiety can become excessive or persistent and begin to interfere with a person’s daily functioning. When this happens, a clinician may make a diagnosis of an anxiety condition, such as generalized anxiety disorder. If persistent anxiety is a result of a specific trauma, a diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder may be made. When anxiety occurs predominantly in the face of social situations or encounters, the person may have social anxiety disorder (social phobia).1

While each anxiety condition has its own unique features, there are some common symptoms. These include physical symptoms such as: panic attacks, hot and cold flushes, racing heart, tightening of the chest, quick breathing, restlessness, or feeling tense, wound up, and edgy. Symptoms can also be psychological and include excessive fear, worry, catastrophizing, or obsessive thinking. Avoidance is also a key behavioral symptom.1

Anxiety disorders are a growing global problem. In one analysis of 87 studies across 44 countries, it was estimated that the prevalence of anxiety disorders can be as high as 28.3%.2 This results in a heavy burden on both the individual who suffers from anxiety, as well as society as a whole. Of course, you don’t need to have a diagnosis of an anxiety disorder to also suffer from day-to-day anxieties. With so many people suffering from anxiety, how can anxiety levels be reduced?

 

How can anxiety be reduced?

One way to promote a reduction in is through the use of supplements. One supplement that helps promote calmness is Zuntree’s My-Anxiety Management dietary supplement. This supplement contains a number of ingredients, but the secret lies in its proprietary blend, which includes two very important compounds called L-theanine and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). L-theanine is an amino acid found in green tea. A recent scientific analysis has shown that L-theanine may assist in the reduction of stress and anxiety in people who have been exposed to stressful conditions.3 In another study, college students who took L-theanine reported less stress compared to placebo.4 GABA is the brain’s primary inhibitory neurotransmitter. This means that it’s the chemical that is the brain’s “stop” signal. GABA, generally, promotes calmness. As a supplement, research suggests it has the potential to decrease cortisol (a stress hormone) and reduce psychological fatigue.5

Another supplement worthy of consideration is Zuntree’s Hemp Oil. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive compound derived from the hemp plant. It has grown in popularity in recent years due to its numerous health benefits. One such benefit is its ability to ease anxiety. Multiple research studies have even shown that CBD supplementation can reduce the negative symptoms associated with social anxiety disorder.6,7
