Anxiety flares may induce stress eating, and thus overeating on foods that can be harmful to our health. This can perpetuate inflammation and chronic illnesses like digestive issues and diabetes – diabetes is a top cause of kidney disease in the U.S. Our trends of day to day choices often add up to how we feel over the long-term. Therefore, it can be helpful to learn how to better cope with anxiety flares. Here is one way to do so.

Inositol is a structural component of phospholipids in cell membranes, it is made within the gut, and it has a number of beneficial properties.

  • Regulates hormone function
  • Indirectly allows for release and transmission of neurotransmitters (dopamine, serotonin, noradrenaline, acetylcholine)
  • Effective for panic disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, and depression
  • Displays pain-killing effects
  • Potential aid for diabetic neuropathy
  • Increases sensitivity to insulin
  • Reduces Small LDL and lowers triglycerides

If anxiety is no stranger to you, you may be familiar with the medication Fluoxetine, better known by the common brand name Prozac. Prozac is used to treat major depressive disorder, anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and panic disorder. Prozac is in the class of medications known as Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), which helps to balance serotonin levels in the body. This can help to create a sense of calm. As mentioned above, Inositol also helps to improve serotonin balance while also supporting other areas of the body, and without the side effects of Prozac. As I have seen many times, anxiety is often not the only condition present. The multiple roles Inositol plays in the body is a testament to how much the body is connected.
