Anxiety disorders are the most common psychiatric illnesses. An estimated 40 million American adults suffer from anxiety disorders. Even though the disorders are highly treatable, it is estimated that less than 1/3 of those affected seek out treatment.
While it is completely normal to experience occasional anxiety, some people experience an overwhelming amount of anxiety that may seem to be uncontrollable and irrational. When the level of anxiety a person experiences interferes with daily life, and routine activities, it may be an anxiety disorder and require proper treatment.
What are the Different Anxiety Disorders?
- Generalized Anxiety Disorder
- Panic Disorder
- Social Anxiety Disorder
- Specific Phobias
- Separation Anxiety Disorder
Although the factors that result in anxiety are far too complex to be explained by a single chemical deficiency or imbalance across all individuals, the more we learn about NAD, the more we understand that it plays a vital role in many of these complex interactions.
What are the Signs/Symptoms of an Anxiety Disorder?
Different anxiety disorders have various signs and symptoms, but some tend to appear in all of the disorders. Some of the most common signs/symptoms are:
- Difficulty sleeping
- Tense muscles
- Sense of panic or uneasiness
- Shortness of breath
- Rapid heart rate
It’s likely that NAD plays a role in resetting the brain to regulate moods appropriately and get you feeling good again. For starters, NAD is essential for maintaining proper levels of neurotransmitters—intricately involved in brain neurotransmission. Neurotransmitters are chemicals in the brain that help to control states of consciousness, including moods. BR+NAD can be used to help regulate the mind and body, contributing to calm, peacefulness, and even a reduction of anxiety.
