In this current era of uncertainty, it’s easy to see why symptoms of minor anxiety are causing a spike in searches for calming herbal remedies. There are three in particular that Anxiety UK pinpoint as being popular.
First up? St John’s Wort. It’s been used as a remedy for more than 2000 years. According to Anxiety UK ‘while it is not clear exactly how St John”s Wort works, it is thought that is helps to prolong the action of serotonin, a brain neurotransmitter, which when deficient can result in low mood.’ Then there’s valerian. Valerian root tea is popular when it comes to trying to get a better night’s sleep, and valerian root is also a prominent ingredient in buys such as Kalms One A Night.
