The Best Vitamins for Stress


1. Vitamin B Complex


You may have heard of only a few different B vitamins, with vitamin B12 being the most well-known, but did you know that there are eight that make up the Vitamin B-complex? All eight B vitamins are essential for our bodies and help contribute to your psychological function, energy and metabolism.


Our Vitamin Code Raw B-Complex capsules contain all eight B vitamins, including thiamine (B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), vitamin B6, folate, vitamin B12, biotin (vitamin B7) and pantothenic acid (vitamin B5). With raw nutrients from whole food fruit and vegetables, your body will get all the essential B vitamins for stress that also play an important role in normal energy-yielding metabolism and brain health.



What is the Anti-Stress Vitamin?


Vitamin B5 is often referred to as the anti-stress vitamin, and you’ll find it in our vitamin B-complex supplements. All eight B vitamins together are beneficial for maintaining optimal health and overall wellbeing, and therefore may aid in improving your mood and reducing stress.

2. Microbiome Mood+ Capsules


Looking after yourself from the inside and ensuring you have a healthy gut microbiome is a great place to start when looking for ways to reduce stress levels. Our Dr Formulated Mood+ Microbiome Supplements contain a specially formulated combination of clinically studied live bacteria strains, organic ashwagandha and organic blueberries that help to support emotional wellbeing and relaxation.


The ashwagandha plant is great for stress management, as it can help the body adapt physically and psychologically during periods of stress. Look after your digestive health and immune system at the same time with this convenient stress-busting supplement.



The Best Mineral Supplements for Stress


3. Magnesium


Magnesium is an important mineral that can have a positive impact on managing stress and anxiety. Found in leafy greens, legumes and whole grains, there are so many health benefits of magnesium, with it supporting a range of essential functions in the body – including reducing tiredness and fatigue.


Our Whole Food Magnesium Powder in Raspberry Lemon and Orange can be added to water and is a really easy way to add more magnesium to your diet. Contributing to normal psychological function, magnesium is a great supplement for stress relief, as well as instilling calmness and regularity to your bodily functions too.



The Best Herbal Remedies for Stress Relief


4. Ashwagandha


Speaking of ashwagandha, you can also look into taking herbal ashwagandha tablets to help reduce stress levels. Taken twice a day, our Organics Ashwagandha herbal supplements are designed to reduce stress and improve mood, while supporting optimal energy levels.


Having been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine practices for centuries, the adaptogenic properties of ashwagandha help your body to adjust physically and psychologically to stress, and in turn lifts our mood.



5. Adrenal Herbal Stress Balance Tablets


Bringing the benefits of vitamin B-complex and ashwagandha into one convenient tablet, Organics Herbal Stress Balance Tablets are a great supplement to take if you’re feeling stressed. Give your mind and body the help they need to manage everyday stresses with the help of B vitamins and the adaptogenic herbs ashwagandha root and ginseng.



6. Sleep Well R&R Spray and Tablets


To help manage stress, it’s important to ensure you’re getting enough good quality sleep – but often when we’re feeling too stressed, it’s hard to sleep with everything that’s on our minds! This vicious cycle can cause havoc to our immune system, as well as our general wellbeing and overall health, which in turn can make us even more stressed.


Help encourage a good night’s sleep with our Organics Herbal Night Spray, which is also available in tablet form. Containing relaxing herbs, such as lemon balm, passionflower and chamomile, in addition to the powerful amino acid L-Theanine, simply take before bed to help you relax. It also helps to promote rest during your sleep cycle, so you can wake up feeling refreshed and ready to start a new day with lower stress levels.
