Anxiety herbs

Two natural anti-anxiety herbs used extensively for hundreds of years are Mulungu and Graviola.

Erythrina Mulungu, commonly known by several names such as Mulungu, Murungu, Murungo, Muchocho and so on, is a medium sized tree that grows to a height of 10-15 meters, and brings forth a profusion of flowers. The bark and root of this plant are used as medicines to reduce anxiety and stress, and also as a pain reliever. The herb reduces blood pressure, regulates heartbeat, and acts as a sedative. Mulungu has been in use for centuries in South America as a natural anti-anxiety herb to calm agitated nerves. The herb is used to reduce anxiety and promote restful sleep. It is used successfully for breathing problems and liver disease. A research study in 2002 validated the traditional use of the plant as an anti-anxiety herb.

Graviola is small evergreen tree that is about 5-6 meters in height. The leaves, fruits, bark, roots and seeds of this plant have excellent medicinal properties, and have been in use for centuries as indigenous medicines. Graviola is used to relieve spasms and reduce depression. The bark, leaves and roots of Graviola have sedative, antispasmodic and hypotensive properties.

The anti-anxiety herbs marketed by Amazon Botanicals contain these two herbs, and makes the user feel happier. They are made from fully natural sources and are therefore free of harmful side effects. Both these anti-anxiety herbs are fast acting and work effectively. They are faster than St. John's Wort, and free of side effects and liver toxicity that other herbs like Kava Kava induce.

The anti-anxiety herbs produced by Amazon Botanicals use fresh Mulungu and Graviola and avoids fillers of any kind, in contrast to other manufacturers who buy from secondary sources, and use stale or adulterated products. This ensures safety and efficacy of the herbal preparation that is manufactured.

The products are available in two forms � anxiety tincture and anxiety tea. The tincture is manufactured by extracting 100% pure Mulungu and Graviola in distilled water and 40% alcohol. The suggested dosage is 60 ml twice a day taken under the tongue or with water or juice. The tea is made from 100% pure Mulungu and Graviola leaves and bark, and comes with a natural flavor. The tea is to be prepared by simmering the tea bags in water for thirty minutes or more. You can make the tea stronger by simmering the preparation longer.

Persons with dangerously low blood pressure levels should avoid use of the herb, as this is known to result in further lowering of the blood pressure. Persons with high blood pressure who are on medication should consult their doctor, as use of the herb may require a reduction in the dosage of the drug they are taking for treating high blood pressure. The drug should also be avoided during pregnancy. Extremely large doses of Graviola may result in nausea.
