Natural Stress Relief Supplements and How They Work

Need Stress Support?

Stress is a common problem that affects everyone from time to time. However, although mild to moderate stress is a normal part of everyday life, problems can arise when your stress levels become elevated for long periods of time. 

Chronic stress – stress that rarely subsides – can pose a threat to your physical, mental, and emotional well-being, and it’s always worth it to do whatever you can to keep your stress in check to preserve your health.

When it comes to dealing with stress, there’s no better support to have on your team than R3SET. Our signature blend of stress support ingredients were specifically chosen to help you conquer your stress and live a calmer, happier life. 

In this post, we’ll be discussing each of the ingredients that are included in our Calm and Unwind capsules, which are our all-day and evening support system for anyone dealing with stress.

Let’s get started!

The Primary Causes of Stress 

Stress can enter your life from all directions. Just about anything can become a stressor – a primary source of stress – even if it is something that tends to bring you joy and fulfillment. While there is an endless list of potential stressors, these are the most common causes of elevated stress levels:

Work. Your career, with its obligations, responsibilities, and deadlines, can sometimes make you feel overwhelmed, even if you love what you do. Work-related stress can increase if and when you are dealing with conflict with coworkers or bosses, are procrastinating, or have overcommitted to too many projects.

Family & Relationships. The people you love most can also be some of the primary sources of stress in your life. Disputes and disagreements with family members and friends can add to your feelings of stress, as can the responsibilities of parenthood, dating, and marriage.

 Health. Getting sick is a universal source of stress – no one likes being under the weather, and health problems can be a source of near-constant worries for some people. In the age of a global pandemic, health-related stress has become more prevalent than ever.

Finances. Managing money can be tough, and everyone deals with financial stress from time to time. In the pandemic era, managing money has become even harder for many people, making finances one of the most common stressors of the 2020s. 

In addition to these common stressors, there are plenty of other factors that can stress you out and make you feel overwhelmed. Fortunately, no matter where your stress comes from, you can still take practical steps towards managing it with the help of natural remedies.

So, what are the best natural stress relief supplements? Let’s find out.


GABA, also known as gamma-aminobutyric acid, is a chemical that sends signals from your brain to your nervous system. As a neurotransmitter, GABA helps your nervous system stay in a state of equilibrium during high-stress situations. 

Found in certain foods, GABA acts as a buffer against the negative effects of your nervous system’s “fight or flight” response.

GABA is found in abundance in broccoli, berries, potatoes, legumes, bananas, and many other foods, but you can also reap the benefits of this natural stress reliever by taking it as a supplement.

Valerian Root

Valerian root is a natural sleep aid that has been used for centuries to calm the mind before bed. It is often enjoyed in the form of tea. Like GABA, valerian root is thought to produce a calming effect, which can help you wind down and relax when it’s time to go to sleep.

Lemon Balm, Passion Flower, and Other Natural Sleep Supporters 

In addition to valerian root, a restless mind can also benefit from natural herbal sleep aids like lemon balm, passion flower, ahiflower oil, and more. Each of these ingredients is included in the formula for Unwind, R3SET’s calming nighttime supplement. 

Unwind contains a combination of natural active and botanical ingredients that is specially formulated to help calm the mind and provide some relief from the stresses of the day. Unwind also includes ashwagandha, vitamin D, beta caryophyllene, and relora. This combination can help you get the rest you need without the need for lab-made melatonin or prescription sleep aids.


A compound found in green tea, L-Theanine is often used as a focus-boosting ingredient. The compound is an amino acid that is thought to have a positive impact on the mind’s ability to focus on mentally taxing tasks and stay attentive throughout the day. In addition, L-Theanine also appears to have a positive impact on supporting healthy GABA activity in the brain, making it a valuable asset for daytime and nighttime stress management.

Vitamin D 

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that your body naturally produces in response to sun exposure. D vitamins are also found in a variety of foods. However, you can also reap the benefits of vitamin D by taking the nutrient in supplement form.

Vitamin D serves a number of important purposes within your body, including:

  • Maintaining mood health
  • Supporting strong bones and aiding in calcium absorption
  • Supporting the immune system

The link between vitamin D and emotional health is often cited as the primary explanation for the “winter blahs,” a colloquial term for seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Since people tend to get less sun exposure in the winter, there is greater potential to develop a vitamin D deficiency in the winter months. If you tend to find yourself feeling blue and worn down during the colder, darker months of the year because of a lack of vitamin D, supplementing with vitamin D may help.

Combining Supplements with Healthy Habits 

In addition to taking natural supplements for stress relief, you can also greatly benefit from adding healthy calming habits to your daily routine. Habits that can help you find relief from stress include the following:

Exercise. Moving your body, even just for 30 minutes a day, can make a big difference in terms of your emotional well being and stress levels. You don’t need to work out too hard or too long to promote the release of endorphins, hormones that are associated with feelings of calm and fulfillment. 

Meditation. Calming your mind and sitting quietly has been a stress-relieving practice for thousands of years. While meditation is sometimes used as a spiritual discipline, the act of quieting your mind does not need to be a religious or spiritual habit unless you prefer it to be.

Sleeping Well. Working to improve your sleep quality is one of the most important steps you can take towards a less stressed life. If you are struggling to get your stress under control, it may be a sign that you need a few more hours of deep, restful sleep each night.


If you’re struggling to find the relief that you need from stress, R3SET can help. 

Our Calm and Unwind supplements provide all-day and nighttime support for your mind, helping you to stay calm, peaceful, and happy 24/7.
