AnxiClear is a supplement manufactured by the AnxiClear company for the purposes of anxiety relief. In this article, we will perform an analysis of AnxiClear’s active ingredients, efficacy, side effects, customer reviews, any supporting scientific research literature, and provide guidance on where to purchase it.
Analysis of Active Ingredients
AnxiClear contains the following active ingredients: Valerian (Valeriana officinalis), 5-HTP, Passionflower, Chamomile, L-Theanine, Bacopa Monniera, and a large number of other herbal ingredients. The table below will summarize their anxiolytic function; clicking on the name of the ingredient will take you to a page with a more in depth description of its purpose, if we have analyzed that ingredient in a prior article.
|Valerian root extract||Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) is a perennial herb with anxiolytic and sedative properties. Like certain other medicinal herbs, it is hypothesized to act via the GABA receptor system.|
|5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP)||5-HTP is a chemical precursor for the neurotransmitter serotonin, which produces a sense of well-being and happiness via its effects on the central nervous system.|
|Passionflower||The Passionflower (Passiflora incarnata) is a species of passionflower with anxiolytic and sedative properties.|
|Chamomile||Chamomile contains chemical compounds which bind to GABA receptors in the central nervous system. It has a number of other beneficial effects on the nervous and endocrine systems by helping to modulate various interactions. In other words, it performs a number of functions which contribute to an anxiolytic effect.|
|L-theanine||L-thenanine is an amino acid found in green tea and in some mushrooms. A Japanese study has suggested that the oral intake of l-theanine provides anti-stress benefits by inhibiting cortical neuron excitation. L-theanine allows for enhanced awareness and mental clarity without drowsiness or agitation.|
|Bacopa Monniera||Also known as “Brahmi,” this herb has been employed in the Hindu traditional medicine of Ayurveda for many neurological purposes. It is currently being studied as a natural defense against neurodegeneration and anxiety.|
|Magnolia extract||The bark of Magnolia oficinalis has been employed for many centuries in traditional Chinese medicine as a way to ease anxiety and improve sleep quality. It is currently undergoing research studies to evaluate its efficacy as an anxiolytic.|
|Eleuthero root extract||Also stemming (pardon the pun) from traditional Chinese medicine is the Eleuthero shrub. It was traditionally used to treat headaches, insomnia, and poor appetite. Research studies are underway to evaluate its efficacy in modern pharmacology.|
|Avina sativa||Although it has a fancy name, this ingredient is simply the common oat. Oats have been shown to increase serotonin levels (like 5-HTP, but without the side effects).|
|Magnesium||Certain vital nutrients are essential for regulating neurochemical processes. One of the most important minerals for this type of regulation is magnesium, known by its chemical shorthand “Mg.”|
This table paints a pretty clear picture of the ingredient profile for the product. Given that we have examined a number of the ingredients contained therein and found them to be efficacious for the treatment of anxiety, we think it is safe to say that the product will be efficacious in treating your own anxiety symptoms. However, given that very few studies exist which combine all of these different ingredients, it is unclear as to whether or not their combination is scientifically valid. Nonetheless, the consumer reviews for the product on various retail sites seems to affirm its positive and beneficial effect on anxiety and anxiety symptoms for the general population. Finally, you may wish to contact the manufacturer of AnxiClear directly to confirm that the product does not contain any ingredients or is not manufactured with any ingredients which could cause you to suffer from an allergic reaction, should you suffer from allergies of any kind.
Efficacy & Supporting Scientific Literature
To the best of this author’s knowledge, no independent, double-blind scientific studies exist to evaluate the efficacy of AnxiClear. However, the active ingredients contained therein would appear to be effective anxiolytics. But it is impossible to statistically determine whether or not this supplement is efficacious based on the ingredients. More research on supplements which combine multiple herbal remedies is needed. To compensate for this lack of verifiable scientific research, we will examine customer ratings and reviews of AnxiClear.
This author was unable to locate a list of side effects associated with AnxiClear. However, the following general guidelines should be followed when taking ANY dietary supplement:
- Dietary supplements may contain ingredients which have negative interactions with prescription medications. Always consult with your doctor before taking a dietary supplement.
- Women who are pregnant, may become pregnant, or nursing should not take this supplement.
- Given a lack of scientific research on the product, care should be taken (Listen to your body; if it’s not working or making things worse, stop taking it)
Unfortunately, this supplement lacks a statistically useful number of product reviews. If you have taken AnxiClear, why not leave us a comment below about how well it worked for you?
In the interim, the best way to evaluate whether or not a particular supplement is right for your situation is to actually have look at it yourself and determine whether or not it is working for the symptoms you are experiencing. Once more customer reviews become available, we’ll be sure to update this section.
