Vervain (Verbena officinalis)
Vervain is an important supplement for addicts because it protects neurons and increases brain health. It is an anti-anxiety herb and may help with insomnia, especially during the withdrawal and detoxification process. In terms of its ability to relax the mind and body and calm anxiety, it has even been compared to Diazepam by some recovered addicts. Thus, it’s a particularly useful herbal supplement for people recovering from a benzodiazepine addiction.
Take 1 capsule of this supplement daily in the evening hours or at times of severe anxiety, or use on an as needed basis to relieve cravings, reduce anxiety, or aid sleep.
