Multi-Ingredient Supplement May Help Reduce Feelings of Stress

Prolonged stress can play a role in headaches, high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes, and skin problems. A recent study has found that a multi-ingredient supplement may help reduce feelings of stress.

One hundred adults who were moderately stressed participated in the study. They were given one dose of one of the following:

  1. 150 mg of magnesium, vitamins B6, B9, and B12, 125 mg of green tea, and 222 mg of rhodiola:
  2. 150 mg of magnesium, vitamins B6, B9, and B12, and 222 mg of rhodiola:
  3. 150 mg of magnesium, vitamins B6, B9, and B12, and 125 mg of green tea:
  4. A placebo

The researchers administered the Trier Social Stress Test to the participants, and evaluated stress levels using EEG, the Stress and Arousal checklist, cortisol levels, and blood pressure levels.

Participants who took the supplement containing all the ingredients saw increased EEG measures, which indicates a relaxed state with less feelings of stress and anxiety. They felt less stress for up to 7 hours after taking the supplement. They also felt less anxiety and negative mood disturbance for between 2 and 7 hours after taking the supplement.

The study was conducted by researchers from the University of Leeds. It was published online ahead of print on April 26, 2021, in the journal Nutritional Neuroscience.
