5 Herbs That Relieve Anxiety

5 herbs that releive anxiety

Nervousness, difficulty in sleeping, depression and fearfulness can be symptoms of an anxiety disorder. What was once your body’s natural response to warn you of perceived dangers and prepare your mind to deal with stressors is now interfering with your daily chores, work output and even your relationships with our family, friends and spouse.

You may have already tried physical exercises, breathing techniques or meditation to relieve anxiety and greatly reduce its impact on your life. To be able to deal with the kinds of stresses anxiety presents requires a holistic approach, so you should also consider your food intake. Herbs provide a variety of benefits for both body and mind so we should be able to consider what they can do for our mental welfare.

Here are five herbs that can relieve anxiety and help you go through life positively once again.

Gingko Biloba

Gingko Biloba

Anxiety impairs your mind’s ability to think clearly and make good decisions about your everyday life. By increasing blood flow to the brain and overall blood circulation throughout the body, gingko biloba helps refresh your state of mind and acts as a natural antidepressant. People anticipating tasks which require a solid focus and concentration are advised to take gingko biloba so as not to anticipate their challenges in an anxious mood.

Licorice Root

Licorice Root

Licorice root contains a natural hormone alternative to cortisone, which can help the body handle stressful situations, and can help to normalize blood sugar levels as well as your adrenal glands, providing you with the energy necessary to deal with the stressful situation at hand. Some claim licorice stimulates cranial and cerebrospinal fluid, thereby calming the mind. You can take licorice root as a tea or a tonic.

Kava Kava


Kava kava can lift your spirit and make you happier by inducing a mild state of euphoria and sedation. Kava kava is very effective in the treatment of anxiety, working within a week of taking it daily. In medical applications, the herb is used in the treatment for women with post-menopausal depression. For people with sleep disorders, kava kava is a non-addictive herb which can work as a mild tranquilizer.

Passion Flower

Passion Flower

Passion Flower works as a non-drowsy, natural sedative that relieves intermittent stress, nervousness, anxiety and panic attacks. It won’t put your worries away by knocking you out or making you sleepy. You can find a certain equilibrium in passion flower by making you feel emotionally balanced. For those with bipolar disorder, it won’t give you a hyper, happy or excited feeling. Instead, passion flower will restrain your emotions from its range of extremes. If you have exaggerated emotions throughout the day (in which you go from being very happy to being very angry or sad), you may find passion flower to be a nice tea to drink after letting it seep in boiling water for 10 minutes.



Ginseng is also known as a “brain food” as it improves concentration, thinking, and memory. It is also a supplement for added physical stamina. All these benefits contribute to its anti-anxiety properties as it revitalizes your body. Ginseng has many benefits and these include stimulant properties to reduce stress and enhance health. It can be used as a relaxant as it has tonic properties and can also help maintain emotional balance. Drink ginseng as a tea or take it in supplement form.
