7 Supplements for Staying Calm in a Stressful Environment

Let’s be real – we have all been in a stressful environment more than just a handful of times. From sitting in traffic during rush hour to shopping for last minute items during the holidays to a loud and crowded room full or strangers…

In all reality, stressful environments are all around us.

We live a very fast-paced life and it is easy to get stressed out – people are always scurrying around, things get loud, and we get in a big hurry…

But, do you know what the best thing you can do when you’re in a stressful environment?

Stay calm.

A clear and level head will always be your tried and true – getting stressed in a stressful environment will only make the situation worse, rather than helping it.

But, of course, staying calm in a stressful environment is not quite as easy as it sounds. So, here are a few supplements that can help you out:

1.     Noopept

Noopept is recommended for anxiety and depression as it is a natural way to improve cognitive functions and to help you stay calm. It can be beneficial in a stressful environment and as well as in your everyday life, by reducing anxiety.

The peptide, Noopept, helps you remember more things and is also believed to boost the growth of neurons located in the brain’s hippocampus, which can also help reduce your anxiety level.

2.     Niacin

Niacin is actually a B vitamin, also known as vitamin B3. This supplement plays a key role in sever of our bodily functions, which is actually why it makes the list.

Niacin helps to reduce blood pressure, increase blood flow, regulate hormones, counterbalance excess adrenaline, and ultimately promote relaxation – therefore, helping you stay calm even in a stressful environment.

3.     Magnesium

If you experience stress often, it actually might be a sign that you are Magnesium deficient…

Magnesium deficiency leads to magnified feelings of stress and anxiety. And, more stress can actually continue to deplete the amount of Magnesium stored – just making the situation even worse.

4.     Lemon Balm

Lemon balm, an herbal plant often used in teas and supplements, works by calming both the mind and the body. And, by working on calming both aspects of your body, lemon balm helps induce relaxation and a sense of calmness.

Lemon balm also work synergistically with valerian root, which we discuss in supplement No. 6.

5.     Kava

Kava is the root of a pepper which is found naturally in the Pacific Islands and for generations it has been used as a ceremonial drink…

However, it has now been shown to also have significant anxiety-reducing effects. In clinical trials, kava has been shown to induce relaxation, improve stress management, and elevate your mood.

6.     Valerian Root

This root is actually one of the top supplements for reducing stress and for a number of reasons:

Valerian root increases the amount of gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) in your brain which plays a role in reducing stress, it helps regulate nerve cells in the body, and overall creates a calm feeling.

7.     L-Theanine

L-theanine is an amino acid which is found naturally in green tea. It is a great option for stress relief because it helps relax both the mind and the body without having the sedative effects some other supplements might cause.

For this reason, L-theanine is great for reducing stress during the day without feeling drowsy. Many people look at it as a way to “take the edge off.”

It is also particularly popular because it can be used in combination with caffeine to cancel out the effects – so, you can have your morning cup of coffee and still feel relaxed without feeling tired and drowsy. But, you will still feel the little pick-me-up from the caffeine.

Supplements are a great way to combat stress in a healthy way. They encourage your body to calm down and allow you to wander through the situation in a calm and clear manner – which is always the healthiest state of mind.
