Let’s get started.

Why You Need to Manage Your Stress 

Everyone gets stressed from time to time. While it may not seem like run-of-the-mill stress and anxiety are causing any big problems, the stress that you experience can add up in the long run. After years and decades of chronic, long-term stress, you may start dealing with serious health problems.

Chronic stress, the type of stress that rarely goes away and starts to become the center of your life, poses a threat to your nervous, endocrine and immune systems as well as affecting your emotional and physical health. That’s why stress management is so important. 

To keep yourself holistically healthy, you’ll need to take proactive steps and preventative measures to stop factors like stress from controlling your life.

Along with relaxation techniques, at R3SET our recommendation is to opt for ingredients sourced from nature when assembling your personal routine to support your stress response. 

While there are plenty of supplements and other products on the market making lofty claims about their calming benefits, many of these contain high doses of one, two or more active ingredients usually targeted at the nervous system. However, two other key body systems affected by stress, the endocrine and immune systems, go unsupported. 

Whenever you can, stick with natural stress-fighting ingredients like the ones discussed in this post, that provide support across the 3 systems amplified by stress

So, what are some of the best stress support supplements to take for a calmer, happier mind? Let’s find out.


L-Theanine is a member of a group of compounds known as non-essential amino acids. This amino acid is one of the primary compounds found in green and black tea, as well as in certain mushrooms. It’s known for its calming effect on the mind, as well as for providing a boost of focus and mental energy. 

As a component in green and black tea, L-Theanine is responsible for the focus-inducing properties possessed by these popular drinks. L-Theanine can be a great ingredient to paired with caffeine, as it can support a calm yet energizing mental energy that you get from this popular stimulant*. L-Theanine can also help you manage feelings of everyday stress and occasional bouts of anxiety*.

Valerian Root 

Valerian root extract has been used to fight stress, as well as to induce sleep, for thousands of years. Valerian is a plant that grows in parts of Europe and Asia, and it’s an ingredient to consider including in a natural stress-fighting regimen. If you’re struggling to find the relief that you need from stress – especially at night – valerian root may be a suitable  supplement for you to try.

Some people enjoy drinking valerian tea before bed to calm down and unwind. However, you can also take valerian root as a bedtime supplement. Like many herbal sleep aids, valerian root works best when taken between 30 minutes and an hour before bed. If you are taking any medications for stress or anxiety disorders, you should check with your doctor before using valerian root or any other supplements for stress.

Vitamin D

This fat-soluble vitamin is often referred to as “the sunshine vitamin” because your body produces it in response to the sun’s rays. In addition to getting vitamin D from sunlight, you can also get this vital nutrient from foods and supplements. Dietary sources of vitamin D include animal foods like eggs and dairy products, as well as some plant-based foods, including mushrooms and fortified whole grains.

Your body needs vitamin D for healthy bones, immune support, and mood regulation, as well as for other important purposes. Proper vitamin D intake is associated with better overall mood health, and vice versa. 

One of the symptoms of vitamin D deficiency is depression. This partially explains why some people tend to deal with mood disorders, especially seasonal affective disorder, in the colder, darker months of the year.

If you have a vitamin D deficiency, you may find yourself more susceptible to the negative effects of stress, such as  lowering your immune response. To ensure that your levels of this important nutrient are as they should be, make sure to get enough of it from sunlight, foods, and supplements.

Taking a vitamin D supplement can play a key role in your stress management routine. If you are struggling to get stress and anxiety under control, it may be wise to consult your doctor and see if a vitamin D deficiency is contributing to your stress. Your doctor can check your nutrient levels with a blood test, and may subsequently recommend that you start taking a vitamin D supplement to get your levels of the nutrient back to normal.


A popular tea, chamomile is a flower that is known for its pleasant, herbal smell and soothing, mellow flavor. The flower is typically dried and steeped, then enjoyed as a hot drink. Many people make a cup of chamomile a key part of their bedtime routine. However, you can also take chamomile as a supplement, which can be especially helpful if you aren’t crazy about drinking tea.

Chamomile’s calming effects aren’t just a placebo – the flower has real soothing, calming properties. However, unlike many sleep-inducing medications, chamomile’s calming properties are much more mild, and it’s a generally safe herbal remedy to enjoy before bed. 

You can enjoy both chamomile tea and chamomile supplements as part of your bedtime ritual without worrying about side effects or any of the risks associated with prescription-grade sleep aids.

We included chamomile in our Unwind capsules to add to their calming effects on your mind at night*. You can take an Unwind capsule every night about an hour before bed to wind down as its sedative effects can help you get ready for a peaceful sleep.

Ahiflower Oil 

If you’ve been doing research on important nutrients for cognitive health and stress management, you’ve probably run into some articles on omega-3 fatty acids. These compounds are vital for a healthy response to inflammation, and they are found in in ahiflower oil; a natural ingredient that makes a great addition to your anti-stress regimen*.

While ahiflower oil isn’t the only source of omega-3 fatty acids, it’s a vegan plant-based source of these important nutrients. For anyone eating a vegan diet, many omega-3 supplements are off-limits – the most common source of omega 3s is fish oil. Fortunately, ahiflower oil is 100% plant-derived, making it an option for anyone eating vegan or vegetarian and seeking stress support.


While supplements can be a huge help in your efforts to conquer stress, they’re far from your only defenses against getting overwhelmed. You can also cultivate stress-fighting habits, such as regular exercise, mindfulness and meditation, eating a healthy diet, and getting enough sleep, to keep stress to a minimum. 

Taking stress-supporting  supplements each day, complemented by a comprehensive anti-stress regimen that includes regular exercise, healthy diet, high-quality sleep, and more, can leave you with a calmer mind and a happier life. 

It’s always worth it to do whatever you can to minimize the amount of stress in your life – stress management is an essential aspect of maintaining holistic health and well-being. Luckily, there are plenty of steps you can take to build up a strong defense against stress.
