Vitamins For Panic Attack
Vitamins for panic attack (as well as certain minerals) can help calm panic and anxiety. Vitamins and minerals are required by your body anyway, so it's certainly worth checking to see if there's a deficiency.
There's certainly a growing trend of people turning to natural means in general. This makes perfect sense since its been around for centuries. Even many drugs have been derived from plant sources.
Immune & Nervous Systems
Vitamins help promote the health of your immune and nervous system. In times of stress, both body and mind are stronger to deal with stress. Panic and anxiety will certainly increase stress levels.
The B vitamins are very important for your body's nervous system. In times of stress, B vitamins are used up, so it's important to maintain stability. Otherwise, anxiety keeps draining you and it's not being properly replaced.
It's best to take a vitamin supplement along with the minerals calcium and especially magnesium. These are so important for proper nerve function.
B vitamins are necessary for good mental function. B12, Thiamin and Niacin can help make you less vulnerable to panic attack.
Insufficient Vitamins From Diet
Around half the population are deficient in vitamins. It's very difficult to get the proper amount of vitamins from diet alone, hence the importance of supplements.
Speak to your doctor or perhaps get a referral to a dietitian before making any changes. It's always best to be informed so that you also don't overdo it.
Taking vitamins for panic attack is probably not going to 'cure' you, but neither will drugs. It's just a tool to help improve your condition and make it less frequent. And you require vitamins and minerals anyway.
It's ironic that when illness strikes, including mental illnesses, drugs always seem to have top preference as the only form of treatment. Many forget to turn to nature to help do the job.
