Ok, So If you are interested in finding over the counter help for Anxiety and Depression then here is something that may be of interest. I was talking with a friend of mine that happens to be an M.D. he is really into taking natural supplements to support wellness. He told me about an over the counter nutrient called L-Folate. L-Folate is an easier to assimilate form of folic acid.
According to what I was told as well as my research Some of us have a condition where our bodies don't produce or assimilate Folic Acid in adequate amounts. This can have all kinds of negative effects contributing to problems like Alzheimer's, Depression, Anxiety, Diebetes and a whole lot more potential problems. Here is a link to an interesting article regarding L Folate and Senior Citizens, http://mailman2.u.washington.edu/pipermail/phnutr-l/2007-February/018254.html
when you buy it in the store or amazon you want to look for " 5-MTHF" (that is the good stuff that your body absorbs the best) The kind I bought was 1 mg. and there where 60 capsules in the Bottle, It cost me 16.70 at my local pharmacy. which I am going to take 1 to 3 times per day.
If you are suffering from depression you can always ask your Dr to test your blood to make sure you have adequate Folic Acid. I also read that it is important to have enough Vitamin B 12 with your Folic Acid. So I jumped on my Bicycle and road down to the only Pharmacy in town that carries the 5-MTHF and bought some. I also bought some vitamin B-12.
It would have been cheaper to have ordered it from Amazon but I needed the Bike Ride and didn't feel like waiting.

Potential over the counter Help for Anxiety and Depression B-12 and L-Folate.
Keep in Mind that I am no Doctor and this could be flawed or wrong information.
I would highly recommend consulting with your M.D. before Trying this or any other Supplement. Thx B
