Five herbs that help stop anxiety

By Sam Musa

Most of the time, many people consider herbal remedies instead of prescription drugs to treat anxiety or other mental health conditions. The reason is that prescription drugs such as benzodiazepines and beta-blockers are linked with unwanted side effects.

But, it is important to talk to your family doctor before starting to use the herbs to treat mental health disorders because herbs may interact with other medications that can cause side effects.

Here, we are going to discuss five herbs that help to support anxiety.


Ginseng originally comes from the gnarled root of the Asian or American ginseng plant with different active ingredients. Researchers of Chinese medicine have been using ginseng for many years to support mental health issues including anxiety or to reduce the effects of stress. Ginseng is rich with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

The majority of the people relate the properties of this herb with significant solutions of symptoms that occur with depression such as low motivation or energy. Ginseng is effective to manage the hormonal changes and immune responses that occur due to stress and anxiety; therefore, it maintains the chemical changes in the body. This herb is also effective to stop psychological diseases that are associated with stress and anxiety in addition to overpowering the occurrence of depression, anxiety, and various other psychological diseases.


Ashwagandha belongs to the group of adaptogens herbs that is highly known for its stress-relieving properties. It has such properties that directly affect the hormones and those systems that are responsible for managing the stress response of a person. Ashwagandha has long been used in the Indian traditions as a medicine to relieve mental health issues. This herb helps to decrease the person’s probability of fight and flight response and also supports the effective sleep cycles as well as proper functioning of the brain.

In 2019, research at the US National State of Health found the efficiency of this herb to support stress and anxiety. In this research, participants who were given a significant amount of this herb observed to have less cortisol levels and experienced a good quality sleep. While others did not show any reduction in stress and anxiety who were given low doses of this herb.


Maca consists of active compounds known as flavonoids that are assumed to reduce stress as well as anxiety. A study was conducted on 14 postmenopausal women where it was suggested that maca is effective to lessen the feelings of mental health issues such as anxiety and stress.

Besides, Maca is also helpful to reduce the signs of depression in Chinese postmenopausal women according to a study performed in 2015.
