Herbal remedies for anxiety

You may have seen some of the publicity last week about a new study published in the peer-reviewed Nutrition Journal suggesting that herbal and nutritional remedies could be effective in the treatment of anxiety and anxiety-linked disorders.

The study concerned was a type of meta-analysis, based on 24 studies in total. It found that strong evidence exists for the use of herbal supplements containing extracts of passionflower or kava and combinations of L-lysine and L-arginine as treatments for anxiety symptoms and disorders.
