Transform Your Sleep: 5 Best Supplements for Banishing Stress and Anxiety

The Rising Tide of Stress Challenges 

In the relentless pace of modern life, stress, anxiety, and sleeping problems have become common and affect the well-being of countless people. The demands of work, societal expectations, and personal responsibilities often contribute to increased stress levels and trigger anxiety attacks that can last well into the night. 

As the world evolves, individuals find themselves grappling with numerous stressors, leading to a rising tide of problems.

Understanding the Escalating Stress Issues 

Stress can significantly affect not only our mood but also our behaviour and overall health. It can make it difficult for us to relax and can cause various negative emotions, such as anxiety and irritability. In times of stress, we find it difficult to concentrate.1,2  

We may also experience physical symptoms such as headaches, heartburn, stomach upset,  or insomnia. Stress can even affect our appetite and cause us to lose interest in food or have an increased craving for snacks.1 

If left unmanaged, long-term stress can exacerbate existing health problems and lead to increased dependence on substances such as alcohol, tobacco, and others. It can also increase feelings of anxiety and depression.3 

However, research suggests that incorporating certain vitamins, minerals, and supplements into our lifestyle and diet could be beneficial for individuals dealing with stress, anxiety, and sleep problems. 

In this article, we will explore five supplements that can help you to manage these issues.


Slipvel Saffron Stigma Extract 14mg 

Saffron is a spice made up of bright red thread-like stigmas. It has both culinary and medicinal uses. Saffron is harvested by hand from the flower of Crocus sativus4 and has various health benefits, including potential relief for sleep problems. It can also help manage anxiety and improve mood.5  

Kordel’s Slipvel contains a special formula with the patented Affron® saffron extract. This extract has been clinically proven to enhance mood, reduce anxiety, relieve occasional stress, and promote better sleep. 

In a randomized controlled study conducted in 20216, 120 adults who had poor sleep took either 14mg or 28mg of Affron® saffron one hour before going to bed. The results showed that the group that took Affron® saffron experienced a significant improvement in sleep quality and a decrease in episodes of insomnia after just four weeks, compared to the placebo group. It was also found that melatonin production increased during bedtime, aiding in sleep. 

In addition, another  study7 involving 128 participants suffering from low mood showed that a daily dose of 28mg of Affron® saffron over a period of four weeks led to a remarkable reduction in negative mood, stress-related symptoms, and anxiety, with no side effects. 

Based on these findings, Kordel's Slipvel stands out as a promising sleep supplement that can enhance overall well-being. It is a worthwhile option for those seeking a natural approach. Kordel’s Slipvel has also been proven to increase melatonin levels in the body, promoting better sleep quality. 

Each capsule provides 14mg of Affron® Crocus sativus (Saffron stigma) extract. The recommended dosage is one capsule twice a day, or as directed by your healthcare professional. 

Magnesium Amino Acid Chelate 750mg 

Magnesium is a mineral that naturally helps the body relax and is essential for managing stress.8 When the body lacks magnesium, it can cause symptoms similar to those experienced during periods of stress, such as fatigue, irritability, anxiety, and headaches.8

Studies have suggested that taking magnesium supplements can be beneficial for individuals dealing with anxiety. The best part is that these supplements are generally safe and well-tolerated. 

A 2017 study involving 112 individuals with depression found that their symptoms of depression and anxiety significantly improved after taking magnesium supplements for six weeks, compared to a control group.9 

Additionally, research has shown that magnesium supplementation can enhance the quality of sleep by reducing cortisol levels in the blood.10 Cortisol, also known as the “stress hormone,” typically peaks in the morning to awaken us and gradually decreases throughout the day to promote relaxation and sleep. 

Each capsule of Kordel’s Amino Acid Chelate 750mg contains 150mg of elemental magnesium. The chelated form of magnesium is highly absorbable, making it an excellent choice for individuals experiencing anxiety, stress, and insomnia. To potentially boost magnesium levels, it is recommended to take one capsule twice daily.

Magnesium Effervescent Tablets 200mg 

If you are not a fan of swallowing capsules, don’t worry! Kordel's Magnesium Effervescent Tablet 200mg is here to help. Each tablet contains 200mg of highly absorbable magnesium.

In a study from 2011, researchers compared the absorption of magnesium in two different forms: capsules and effervescent tablets. They found that the body absorbs magnesium more effectively from the effervescent tablets compared to the capsules. This was determined by measuring the amount of magnesium excreted in the urine. Individuals who took the effervescent tablets excreted a greater amount of magnesium, indicating a higher absorption rate.11

This is a game-changer for individuals who prefer their magnesium supplements with a fizzy touch. Simply drop one tablet into 100–150 ml of water, and you can enjoy the benefits of magnesium supplements without having to swallow a pill. 


Vitamin E 400 IU 

Research has examined the connection between oxidative stress and chronic lack of sleep. It has been discovered that both of them are related to each other in a complex way. On one hand, oxidative stress can disrupt our sleep by interfering with our natural sleep patterns. On the other hand, poor sleep quality can also increase oxidative stress and diminish our body's ability to combat it.12

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that safeguards the cells in our body from oxidative stress. This can reduce the level of oxidative stress in the body and enhance the quality of sleep.12  

In a recent randomized controlled study conducted in 202312, 160 post-menopausal women who suffered from chronic insomnia disorder were given one tablet of vitamin E supplement daily for a month. The results indicated a significant improvement in sleep quality and duration, along with a decrease in the use of sleep medication. These findings suggest that vitamin E could be an effective alternative treatment for individuals struggling with stress and insomnia. 

When it comes to obtaining your daily dose of vitamin E, Kordel's Vitamin E 400IU supplement is considered one of the best options available. With 400 IU of d-alpha tocopherol, which is the most absorbable form of this vitamin, you can be assured that your body is receiving the necessary antioxidants. The potent antioxidant vitamin E counteracts free radicals, shielding cells from oxidative stress and promoting better sleep. Simply take one capsule after a meal or follow the instructions provided by your healthcare professional. 

St John’s Wort 

St. John's Wort,  a wild plant with vibrant yellow flowers, has long been used in traditional medicine for its therapeutic properties. This remarkable plant is known for its myriad health benefits, particularly in the treatment of depression, anxiety, and sleep disorders.13 Its effectiveness in treating these conditions has been proven through extensive clinical trials and research.

A comprehensive review conducted in 2016, which analyzed 35 studies, found that St. John's wort can be more effective than a placebo in reducing symptoms of mild and moderate depression. Remarkably, it demonstrates comparable efficacy to antidepressant medicines but with fewer side effects.14

One of the mechanisms by which St. John's Wort exerts its positive effects is by enhancing the utilization of neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, GABA, and norepinephrine in the brain. By optimizing the brain's access to these "happy chemicals," this powerful herb can promote an overall sense of well-being and potentially alleviate anxiety.

For individuals looking for an herbal-based supplement, Kordel’s St. John’s Wort can be an excellent option. Each capsule contains 840 mcg of hypericin, an active ingredient known to help people struggling with depression, low mood, and insomnia. To achieve optimal results, it is recommended to take one capsule three times a day with meals.



Dealing with stress, anxiety, and insomnia can be challenging, and medications often have unwanted side effects. However, Kordel’s natural supplements offer solutions without the  drawbacks. Let us help you on your way to peace of mind!
