More information on fish oils for anxiety
Fish oils are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids. A study done by the University of Bordeaux in France looked at clinical and experimental research linking fish oil-type fatty acids with improving depression and anxiety. In particular, they highlighted fish oil’s ability to modulate neurobiological processes involved in the pathophysiology of anxiety and depression. In other words, there are certain pathways in the brain that, when disturbed, can lead to symptoms of anxiety and depression, but fish oils can help fight this.†
Can CBD help?
CBD, or cannabidiol, comes from the hemp plant. While this is often associated with marijuana, CBD does not contain THC, which is the component of marijuana that can get someone high. Cannabidiol has been shown to be safe for the brain. CBD in the form of capsules or drops are often useful for the brain because they impact the CB1 receptor sites. This can calm you down and help with stress and anxiety.†
