Stress and anxiety – can vitamins help?

Many people suffer from stress and anxiety in life due to various factors including work, money, health and relationships.

Stress and anxiety are very much linked and can often trigger each other. Increased stress can create more anxiety and vice versa. It can lead to fatigue, headaches, upset stomach, irritability or anger.

There are ways in which you can deal with these symptoms such as regular exercise, getting enough sleep and most importantly, eating a balanced diet. Our bodies work endlessly to process and use the nutrients we get from our diets. If our diets aren’t consuming the right vitamins, then that can reflect on our stress levels.

If your diet lacks certain vitamins, here are some key ingredients included in our health and vitality capsules that may help with your symptoms:

Vitamin B6

Playing a key role in increasing resilience to stress, and stress-related side effects, Vitamin B6 helps with the production of dopamine and serotonin. It can also help with blood pressure which is often a side effect of stress.

Vitamin B12

This vitamin has a key role in the maintenance of energy levels and boosting the immune systems. In addition, it works to boost dopamine and serotonin which can help improve your mood.

Vitamin C
