Abstract

This systematic review may enlighten the nutritional and herbal supplementation for depression and anxiety. An electronic and manual search was performed through PubMed/Medline. Available clinical studies about the anxiolytic potential of dietary and herbal supplements were included. Data were extracted and compiled into tables. Over the past several decades, complementary and alternative medications have increasingly become a part of everyday treatment. With the rising cost of prescription medications and their unwanted side effects, patients are exploring herbal and other natural remedies for the management and treatment of psychological conditions. This review aims at creating awareness about the use of herbal remedies as a cost effective treatment for anxiety and depression and aims at developing supplement strategies that minimize risks and maximize benefits.
