What is the best supplements that i can take to cure this? As i have done my research I found that Ashvaganda, Gaba, L-theanine and L-tyrosine can help me with that. But among those four which one is more suitable and have quick reaction? Thank you in advance…

Hello, thank you for contacting us regarding your issue.

Nervousness is a very common issue, especially when it comes to public speaking or giving presentations. However, this issue can become more serious if someone with these fears avoids doing things that require them to speak in public. These issues could be caused by issues regarding mental health such as anxiety disorder, phobia, or panic attacks that need medical intervention from a trained specialist.

There is not much evidence to support the use of herbal supplements for anxiety, therefore we recommend you to visit a psychiatrist or a counsellor to help you resolve these issues and recommend you a suitable medication/supplement so that any potential harmful effects from certain supplements can be prevented.

You may consult our online psychiatrist for a confidential and private consultation.

Thank you, we hope our answer has been helpful.
