While there’s no magic pill to stop stress in its tracks, adjusting your vitamin and supplement regimen (or starting one) may help address anxiety from the inside out through nutrition.
Keep in mind:
- Vitamins aren’t regulated by the FDA, and you should check with your healthcare provider before adding supplements (especially if you are taking other medication).
- Taking a multivitamin can help close some nutritional gaps in your diet, which should be your primary source for nutrition.
- Understand and follow dosages. Too much of what seems like a good thing can lead to stomach issues or worse.
- How quickly and usefully vitamins are absorbed into the bloodstream is based on a number of factors: type and age of the supplement, interaction with other supplements, and time of day. Do your homework before you purchase.
