Did you know that nearly one in every five people feel anxious often or even all of the time? The awful feelings are especially common in women who are about twice as likely than men to suffer. Many people suffer in silence because the symptoms are easily obscured by the stress of modern living.
Psychological symptoms of anxiety
- Spinning Thoughts
- Fear of Losing Control
Do you think any of those apply to you? The feeling of spinning thoughts is especially familiar to me.
Physical symptoms of anxiety
- Dry Mouth
- Racing Heartbeat
- Muscle Tension
- Stomach Upsets
I’ve suffered from tension headaches before; a double whammy. They’re not nice and therefore all the more reason to try and deal with anxiety.
Whereas feeling stress is natural it is possible to find that your brain has become over stimulated due to the excessive release of neurotransmitters (like dopamine and adrenaline), which leads to hyperactive nerves, and therefore the feelings of anxiety.
Kalms, no doubt, is stepping up their education piece as they’ve just released a new herbal relief product called Kalms Lavender, an one-a-day capsule, designed to tackle the symptoms of mild anxiety. You may already recognise lavender as something often recommended when it comes to creating a sensation of calm.
Does it work? There are over 15 clinic trials that show daily capsules can have a positive effect. Kasper and others showed how Silexan can work in two weeks.
