What vitamins help control anger?

I am a 38 year old female. I want to know what vitamins help control anger?

I know of no vitamins that have evidence that support their usefulness for controlling anger. Counseling may be more helpful to get at the cause of the anger.

Thank you for reaching out. I’m afraid there aren’t any vitamins to control anger per se. Anger is a normal emotion and therefore it’s not something we want to eliminate. If you’re talking about difficulty controlling your anger, the best course is to see a therapist or coach to help you learn how to best manage your anger so you can use it to your advantage.

There are many, many potential roots to anger. The most effective and efficient approach in the treatment of anger would be to keep track of all the triggers, and potential benefits of your interventions, and talk with a psychiatrist. Hopefully, that will lead both of you to the actual causes of the anger and the best approach is to the treatment of it.
