Anxiety Free™ is our award-winning formula for the daily or occasional bouts of stress life can throw our way. The ingredients in Anxiety Free may help:
- Help maintain calm and well-being*
- Support the body during normal stress & tension, fatigue, & irritability*
Exposure to prolonged levels of stress can have long-term health effects, which is why RidgeCrest Herbals offers Anxiety Free. It combines vitamins, amino acids, and calming Ayurvedic herbs to help support the body's natural ability to create feelings of inner peace and deep calm.
You may notice that the ingredients are similar to our Adrenal Fatigue Fighter product. Both are designed to address stress, but approach it from different angles to meet the needs of your individual stress-response.
A good rule of thumb is to consider how you respond to stress. Do you get angry? Do you cry? Both? If stress frequently reduces you to tears, the adaptogens in Anxiety Free promote the body’s overall capacity to handle non-specific forms of stress to help take the edge off of feeling overwhelmed.
It should be noted that if you're to the point that your stress is interfering with your ability to live your day-to-day life, you should consult a professional for help.

Herbs in Anxiety Free
Eleuthero root was the first well-studied adaptogen and is responsible for the entire classification. An adaptogen is a substance that promotes the body's overall capacity to handle non-specific forms of stress. By helping the body find homeostasis, it supports the ability to respond to external forces that strain the body. It has been part of traditional Chinese medicine since its foundation but was only recognized by the rest of the world in the 1960's thanks to the work of Russian scientists.
This calming herb comes from the Austrian folk tradition of medicine. Rich in essential oil, lemon balm is a common ingredient in teas and is used both internally and externally for various health measures. Part of the mint family, the restful eugenol in the leaves are particularly good for addressing the effects of long-term stress.
A plant with a variety of historical uses, the Cherokee tribe used passionflower herb in poultices to aid weaning babies, and as a blood tonic. Today, evidence suggests it has potential to promote well-being, relaxation, and sleep. Scientifically it contains alkaloids, flavonoids, fatty acids, chrysin, and more.
Used in every culture from traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) to Shamanism, lavender is known even in the Western mainstream world for its gentle, lovely scent and ability to promote relaxation. One old tradition says that it earned its smell when the baby Jesus' clothes were hung over a lavender plant to dry. In traditional Chinese medicine lavender is used to promote fertility, support the body during stress, and more.

Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb often used to promote calm, support cognitive health, and help promote a healthy immune system.

I noticed your Adrenal Fatigue Fighter™ and Anxiety Free have similar ingredients, which one is best for me?
Adrenal fatigue and anxiety are both caused or exacerbated by stress. Our formulas are designed to address two common ways your body may react to it. We often tell people a basic rule of thumb is to look at how you react to a stressful situation. If your reaction is to cry, you could benefit from our Anxiety Free. If your reaction is to get angry, you need Adrenal Fatigue Fighter formula. It is safe to take both together, but most people find one helps more than the other for their specific physiology.
A healthy lifestyle helps Anxiety Free work most effectively when you take other positive steps to manage your life, like:
- Exercise! Studies suggest regular exercise can be more effective at managing anxiety than many other methods
- Get adequate sleep to allow your body time to rejuvenate
- Meditation or prayer to find spiritual balance
- Building healthy relationships and spending time with others
- Maintain healthy eating habits
- Drink plenty of water and cut out sodas and juices
