Herbs For Stress

For many centuries people have used herbs for stress relief. The problem is that there is no general "cure-all" herb for stress. Which one is right for you depends on the symptoms of stress that you might be experiencing.

Ginseng, particularly Siberian Ginseng, has long been touted as good for relieving many of the symptoms of stress. It also helps build resistance to future stress and has a generally overall strengthening and calming effect.

5-HTP, extracted from the bean of an African plant (Griffonia simplicifolia), has received great reviews for its effectiveness as an herb for stress relief and depression. It improves brain functioning and is reported to help create a positive mood.

There are many more herbs that are helpful for overcoming stress. I highly recommend the company iHerb as both a useful resource for information as well as a very good supplier of quality products.

When you visit iHerb you can type in your most prevalent stress symptom and you will be given a range of products that match your need. iHerb carries many brands, very competitively priced and discounted and gives full disclosure of what is contained in each product as well as customer reviews both positive and negative. You will also get a $5 discount on your first purchase if use the code PUZ045.

After many years of taking herbs and vitamins and trying many different suppliers I now use iHerb.com almost exclusively for herbs and vitamins. The information alone is worth a visit to this site.
