Keep an Eye Out

The statements made by Source Naturals have not been evaluated by the FDA. The company does not offer any guarantees nor do they provide any information about long term effects or short term use. Users should be aware when buying this product that Calm Thoughts is expected to be taken alongside both a healthy diet and a healthy mind.
The Bottom Line
Source Naturals does not provide any FAQs or customer reviews for this product. This product also seems to be aimed at people who are able to eat well, exercise regularly and who are able to discuss their emotional state openly and frequently. Many symptoms of stress and anxiety manifest themselves in a poor diet and lack of movement. While it is inexpensive, this product seems like it would benefit those with only mild stress and anxiety rather than anyone who suffers from the continuous stresses of daily life. St. John’s Wort also produces a long list of side effects for many people and studies can only recommend the use of this botanical for under three months.
