To celebrate Stress Awareness Month we spoke to herbal health expert, Rick Hay for his recommendations on natural remedies that help promote clear thinking. As a lecturer in naturopathic remedies, Rick has the following advice for fostering inner tranquility:
Where Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic, Rick explains that “it helps to nourish the nervous system and chill you out a little bit, without sedating you.” The herb is sometimes used in tea, but Rick recommends combining the herbs in a supplement: “If you take it in a supplement you get a more concentrated, potent, therapeutic dose.”
The best way to support normal psychological function and normal functioning of the nervous system is to take the herbs alongside vital vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin B's and biotin.
