Yes, many: Rhodiola is an herb that has calming affects. Valerian also quiets nerves. L-tryptophan and l-theanine are precursors of serotonin which is a calming neurotransmitter that your body produces. There are some studies that show that omega 3 fish oil is helpful for anxiety. Magnesium deficiency can also cause anxiety. Bliss is a product on my website www.Nutrametrix.Com/myramd which helps with anxiety.
