Hey folks, hope all of you are doing well. I talk a lot about anxiety, phobias, self-help, today’s article is about some herbs that helps reduce anxiety and depression.
Ayurveda, as you know, is about ancient Indian medicines, or more precisely herbs. The Atharva Veda, which is one of the Vedas, talks about ayurveda. In ayurveda, there are herbs for almost every disease.
I would like to share three most effective herbs that I personally used for different reasons.
Gotu Kola (Centella asciatica) :
Gotu kola also known as Centella, Thankuni pata in my native language (Bengali) is an amazing herb, used in ayurveda and traditional pacific medicine. It helps in revitalizing weak nervous system, has mildly relaxing effects. Studies have shown that using Centella asciatica reduce anxiety. Apart from this, it is very useful in reducing stomach problems such constipation, poor digestive power, very helpful in dysentry.
