We all experience anxiety to varying degrees in our lives, mainly in prolonged stressful situations, however some people experience chronic anxiety which can start to affect their daily lives. It can vary from person to person, however common symptoms can include; restlessness, a persistent sense of dread or fear, feeling constantly “on edge”, difficulty concentrating and irritability. They can also include physical symptoms like an irregular heartbeat, muscle aches, feeling sick and insomnia.
Although B vitamins are found naturally in a variety of foods, like spinach, peas, bananas, and dairy products, some people struggle to get enough from their diet. Vitamin B can help to reduce the effects of anxiety by promoting healthy nervous system function. When the nervous system is not functioning properly, the adrenal glands store up cortisol (the hormone produced during times of stress that causes the “fight or flight” response) and in turn, produces these negative symptoms.
