    Question Anti-Anxiety supplements


    Guys,

    I am wondering if any of you all take supplements for any anti-anxiety for better concentration on lifting or any stressful (mental) athletic performance? I play a lot of golf tournaments but am looking for something to build up into my system naturally to boost calmness and concentration while I jog/run.

    Thanks,

    If you want a good multi with a mood enhancing brain cognitive and feel good complex, check out Dr. Feel Good by SAN. I can't post links here yet but it's searchable on NP.

    There are other things you can check out as well for an occasional boost rather than a build-up type of thing. SNS Focus XT is the most popular one that comes to mind.

    Phenibut XT from SNS. This is hands down the best for mood support and relaxation.
    I have used it many times and it has worked great for anxiety and stress.

    Focus XT would definitely be #1 for what you're looking for. Picamilon by SNS is also great. Have a bottle sitting here as we speak. I'd rather take picamilon than phinibut. Tolerance rises pretty quick with phinibut and its a bit pricey IMO. You can take picamilon more frequent vs the phinibut. Then again that's just me. Phinubut is stronger. Picamilon has a subtle feel. Both have their ups and downs.

    I want to try dr.feel good from SAN. Has pretty good reviews and profile. They will have a BOGO sale starting monday. Might want to check that out on their site. NP is going to have a black friday sale also.

    Phenibut is NOT good to use daily. From what I gather from the post OP wants something to stabilize his mood in general.

    You are correct on this.
    I apologize for not making that clear. It is only for occasional use, but it works great.(kinda like your Focus XT recommendation)

    I am not sure of too many things other than a good multivitamin that you would want to take for every day use.

    Quality Holy Basil, Rhodiola works for some. There are many potential things that can be used safely.
    I wouldn't recommend phenibut to anyone. That stuff is garbage

    Something that gets very little love for mood support is Picamilon-150. I use it weekdays for the life of the bottle before cycling off at 1-2 caps a day and it works fabulously.

    Avoid combining any supplement with Xanax. It is metabolized chiefly by CYP3A4, making it very prone to drug-drug interactions as far as half-life and elimination are concerned

    Phenibut is potent and works great, Relora is more suited for daily use and may help you out as well.

    Somewhat opiate-like. But it's pleasantly energizing at low doses, but more sedating at high doses.

    Time release magnesium; heard a lot of people recommend it for relaxing and making them less stressed. Not as flashy as some new herb but its good stuff.

    Careful. Depending on the dose ALCAR is said to have both anxigenic and anxiolytic properties.

    Oh yeah, speaking of kava, it can be pretty potent, but most of the pills and extracts are not as good as the real thing. The best route is ordering a good quality powder and making the foul-tasting beverage.

    Yea I take 200mg of mag citrate at night with a sleep aid... I could do 400 but it's kinda expensive and a bottle lasts two months instead of one with the lower dosing.
