Researchers first determined that these vitamins had anti-anxiety and anti-stress benefits back in 1943. Since then, they’ve discovered that the brain uses B vitamins to make neurotransmitters, the chemicals that influence mood. Taking high-potency B complex supplements eases stress, confusion and anger, according to a study of stressed-out office workers. A high-potency multivitamin, which contains the B’s, will have a similar effect.
Suggested dose: Customers should opt for a high-potency multivitamin or B complex supplement. As a guide, it should contain 50 mg of vitamins B1, B2 and B3. If overactive dreams develop, reduce the amount of B6.
