Stress Reduction Techniques – Supplements

I try to make it clear that supplements are a great tool for helping aid in stress reduction but that they are usually a short term solution. If you are still taking a supplement 5 years after you found some relief with it, you’ve most likely avoided the diet or lifestyle changes you needed to make. That said, there a number of terrific supplemental approaches:

Adaptogenic herbs like ashwaganda, ginseng and rhodiola when under high periods of stress (Ask your acupuncturist.)

• B and C vitamins to support stress adaptation

• Phosphatidylserine for direct impact on lowering cortisol

• Amino acid therapy to support neurotransmitter deficiencies

Omega-3 Fatty acids to support dopamine production for better concentration
