Herbal medicine brand ANTIDOTE+ just launched a suite of anti-anxiety treatments. Their new product line uses natural ingredients to regulate serotonin and dopamine--brain chemicals central to anxiety--without the harsh side-effects of pharmaceutical medications. ANTIDOTE+’s products empower users to take control of their mental health, and do so on their own terms.
If you struggle with anxiety on a regular basis, you’re not alone. According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, over 18% of Americans suffer from an anxiety disorder.
“That’s nearly one in five Americans. Whether you’re struggling with anxiety yourself, or you know someone who is, this is an issue that affects us all.” Says ANTIDOTE+ co-founder Jillian Goldsmith.
“An anxiety epidemic is happening right now, and it’s impacting people of all ages and backgrounds. We’re talking everything from pervasive nervousness to crippling panic attacks. These symptoms get in the way of career success, relationship success, everything. It’s no wonder people are searching for ways to manage their stress and banish anxious feelings.”
Low levels of brain chemicals called serotonin and dopamine are common in people with anxiety. These chemicals are thought to play an important role in mental health.
So why not just use anti-anxiety pharmaceuticals to regulate these brain chemicals? For some, traditional treatments may be the right choice. For others however, harsh side effects make synthetic pharmaceuticals undesirable. For example, Prozac--one of the most common anti-anxiety pharmaceuticals--has over 100 associated side effects. These include insomnia, nausea, headache, sexual dysfunction, hair loss, and suicidal thoughts.
ANTIDOTE+’s products are developed to be natural alternatives to these treatments. Initial studies suggest that Cannabidiol (CBD) and other cannabinoids--compounds specialized in by ANTIDOTE+’s research partners--regulate these brain chemicals in a similar way to traditional pharmaceuticals. Whatsmore, CBD has no serious side effects.
“It’s an effective alternative for people who find traditional treatments too harsh on their bodies,” says Jillian.
“I’ve experienced first-hand how debilitating anxiety can be. At the same time, I felt prescription medication just wasn’t right for me because of all the harmful side-effects. I thought, why couldn’t there be a gentler remedy? We created ANTIDOTE+ to help people take control of their stress, and manage anxiety in a way that fit their lifestyle and priorities.”
The ANTIDOTE+ team found that many people were also searching for an alternative treatment. The response they received during the first few weeks of business was overwhelmingly positive.
"We are thrilled to have helped so many people manage stress and anxiety naturally. We get emails daily from people telling us that ANTIDOTE+ has changed the way they live, and also the way they think of themselves. It’s really satisfying to know that our products are making a real difference."
Ultimately, ANTIDOTE+ is about giving people options and control on their path to wellness.
“Our message is, have hope. Through self-care and perseverance, and with the right tools at your disposal, anxiety is something you have the strength to manage.”
