effective supplements for anxiety + depression

Posted by ideopath on June 29, 2016, at 12:50:51

I posted this once before a long time back. I still take these same supplements with the same dosages and they help a great deal. I take them along with my rx meds for anxiety & depression and have taken them for about 8 years with no drop off in effectiveness. The only one for which I raised the dosage, about a year ago, was aloe vera.

Gotu Kola: Nature's Way 475 mg. I take 2 pills at a time, 3x per day- 9am, 3pm, 9pm

Aloe Vera: Solaray Super Aloe Vera- 2 pills at a time 4x per day- 9am, 3pm, 6pm, 9pm

Acetyl L-Carnatine: Doctor's Best 500 mg- I take 2 pills at a time 3x per day at 9am, 12pm, 3pm

Free and Easy Wanderer Plus- Plum Flower brand- 10 pills at a time 3x per day at 9am, 3pm, 9pm

In terms of brands, I have found differences in efficacy except for Gotu Kola. I have not tried other brands of that.

For acetyl l-carnatine I would recommend either Doctor's Best or Jarrows. They are the only 2 brands that I am aware of that have Biostint sigma tau carnatine. That is the one used in a clinical trial.

For Free and Easy Wanderer Plus by Plum Flower- make sure it has the word "Plus". There is another version without the "plus". The "plus" adds 1 or 2 additional herbs. The "plus" version is the one that worked in a clinical trial to augment Zoloft.

For Aloe Vera, I tried a few brands. I felt that Solaray seemed to work the best. I was surprised to read the Amazon ratings to see that very few people use Aloe Vera for mental health. IT is used for other purposes. But I read about it for mental health and it definitely helps me.

All of the above really help. I don't feel that I am taking any Rx drugs or supplements that I don't need. I get all supplements from Amazon.

This is the end of the thread.
