Vitamin Deficiency-Anxiety Help by Cher

Every cell in the body relies on a sufficient supply of vitamins to do its job. Vitamins perform many functions. They promote, blood formation and healthy skin, hair and vision wellness, they help to maintain nerves and muscles and they aid in the release of energy from foods. Recent research suggests that some vitamins can even help prevent certain disorders, such as cancer, cataracts, arthritis and heart disease. While most of you vitamins should come from your foods a vitamin supplement is never a bad thing. They can aid you with what you aren't getting out of your everyday eating habits. Cigarettes, coffee, alcohol and birth control pills all rob the body of essential vitamins. The first signs of a Vitamin Deficiency are fatigue, irritability and anxiety. Over time the immune system will weaken.

What you can do: While there is no substitute for a healthy diet of fruits, vegetables, grain and legumes. You can supplement your diet with the proper intake of vitamins.

To make things simple a good multivitamin is usually a good way to go, however if you are deficient in certain areas your doctor can recommend other supplements to take on top of your multivitamins.

This post has really made me think of great ideas for my anxiety. Some natural anxiety remedies that have been very beneficail to me are St.John's Wort, SAMe, L-Theanine, and Tryptophan. There's also cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and programs like Panic Away and The Linden Method, to name a few. Hope this helps!

Low level of vitamin B12 contribute to stress and anxiety

Thank you how to deal with anxiety, I appreciate your comments.

Jason, food can affect our anxiety level, especially stimulants such as coffee. If you are sensitive to any foods it can also contribute. Its always good to be aware of your body and what affects you and in what way. Low B12 can contribute to stress and anxiety, but High B vitamins can also make anxiety worse. You should contact your doctor about a good vitamin regiment.
Thank you for your comments.
