Ashwagandha
This evergreen shrub derives from India but you can find it in capsule form at your local drugstore. It contains chemicals that help calm the brain, reduces inflammation and lowers blood pressure.

Vitamin B
The body burns through B5 and B6 when it’s stressed so taking vitamin B daily can help with anxiety and nervousness.

L-tryptophan
A precursor of serotonin it can relieve a bad mood. It also promotes sleep and helps with weight loss.

Lemon Balm
Adding this to a food or drink reduces anxiety and increases calmness. It contains Rosmarinic acid, which has an antidepressant effect on the brain.

Kava
Drinking Kava tea is the most common way to take this supplement. It can give you a slight “buzzed” feeling because of its muscle-relaxing properties.
