What Supplements Does Dr. Oz Recommend for Anxiety?

I am on a diet and I have been experiencing a lot of anxiety and stress lately. And someone I met briefly mentioned this supplement from Dr. Oz that helped her with stress and anxiety.

I have suffered from mild anxiety since having my first child 15 years ago. It's basically because I'm a type A control personality and kids pretty much take away all organization and leave chaos. :) Anyway, I'd tried prescription meds but the side effects were more bothersome than the problem ie: weight gain, lethargy and a general feeling of disassociatedness. Enter passionflower. I'd been researching to find a natural remedy and passionflower was the only one that came up as working with no side effects. This is incredible! To be fair, one side effect is that with higher dosages it acts as a mild sedative which is fine for bedtime, it stops my mind from spinning through all the things I need to get done and allows me to rest. The other side effect is that it thins your blood and as such can lower your blood pressure. Great news if yours is high, mine runs low so I have to be a little careful. Because it thins the blood, you want to try to avoid taking aspirin. Other than that, this stuff is my miracle in a bottle. I take 10-15 drops morning and afternoon and 30 drops at bedtime. The label says 30-40 drops 2-5 times a day, so I really think it's about playing around with it to find the level you need. However, start off small and work your way up. You don't want to knock yourself out in the middle of the day. At this dosage, the 1 oz. bottle lasts me about 3 weeks.

I try not to use additives to try to sleep and have only used passion flower when I was stressed out. It worked! I was asleep within the hour. It wasn't a scary pass out right away sleep either, just a sped up version of regularly falling asleep. It's a good, natural solution to falling asleep but even though it's natural doesn't mean it should be something you have to take all the time. If you are that stressed out with life then you need to examine the root of the cause!

Dr. Oz recommends passion flower for nervous stress and anxiety. Researchers believe that passionflower works by calming the activity of some cells in your brain. You can find it in capsules, teas and herbal supplements. Brew passionflower tea with 1 teaspoon of the herb and drink 3 times daily.

Between my job and family life I definitely feel overwhelmed. I have been using passion flower for about 3 weeks now and I have to say I feel more relaxed. It was easy for me to add to my diet because I like tea, so I just add a couple of drops to my tea in the morning and I good to go.

Dr. Ozs tips to break the the stress cycle and relax was to take a couple drops of Passion flower in water or tea. Dr. Oz says Passion Flower has been shown to be as effective in reducing anxiety and stress as a perscription drug is. And he pointed out that reducing stressing helps in eliminating belly fat.
