Whether you have a short temper or just can’t seem to optimize your mental clarity, mood swings and emotional distress can be a serious situation to deal with. Thankfully, a number of herbs can assist you in your fight against mood swings and emotional distress.

Below, I highlight the top herbs for controlling mood swings and their beneficial properties. However, the first thing you need to look at when controlling mood swings is your diet. Things like caffeine, alcohol, artificial sweeteners, food additives, and highly processed foods have a tendency to throw your whole outlook off balance. By eating a diet of organic foods, you can help fend off mood swings and enhance your emotional health. Dietary changes are beneficial, and several herbs can be used to your advantage to help control mood swings:

1. St. John’s Wort

This herb is used to maintain a sense of wellbeing. Many people use St. John’s Wort to assist with mood disorders and report a great degree of success. It is one of the most widely studied and accepted herbs in the use of emotional maintenance.

2. Passionflower

Passionflower may be useful in reducing insomnia, anxiety, ADHD and nervousness. Excellent news when it comes to boosting your overall mood and mental health.

3. Ginseng

Used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine, ginseng is a stimulating herb known to increase energy levels and general vitality. It is also known to increase focus and improve your emotional state.

4. Rhodiola Rosea

Rhodiola Rosea has been shown to be a powerful adaptogen. This means it normalizes body functions, including the functions of the brain. In this manner, it may help to decrease stress, improve appetite, and decrease irritability.

5. Kava Kava

This plant has been used for centuries in the South Pacific islands as a ceremonial drink. It is said to calm the central nervous system, providing an overall sense of relaxation and relief to the body. It may even help reduce stress and anxiety in other ways.

There’s little doubt that the growing number of Americans on mood-altering prescriptions is directly related to the growing problems with the average American diet. By eating an organic diet and cleansing your body on a regular basis, it is easy to see how mood swings could be virtually eliminated. Herbal remedies like these listed above may also help in reducing stress, increasing alertness, and promoting overall mental health.
