Bella Hadid is adamant a new "braincare beverage" has helped her combat anxiety and depression.

The model took to Instagram on Wednesday to announce that she has co-founded a non-alcoholic drinks company alongside entrepreneur Jen Batchelor, with Kin Euphorics offering consumers beverages that "induce euphoria" and help with "hormone harmony".

"As many of you know, I have suffered from extreme depression and anxiety for most of my teenage and adult life. Since I was 14, I had tried everything to help myself feel better. After years of social drinking at work event after work event, along with suffering from different immune problems as well, my body started to tell me 'NO.' I wasn't able to go out anymore with the work schedule I had," she wrote in an Instagram post. "It got harder for me to go out without having one drink to calm my nerves, which made me not want to go out at all, so I was just hibernating between jobs.

"So, I searched and scoured for anything holistic that would help with my chronic exhaustion, depression and anxiety. Asking myself and the universe that maybe since I had been so lucky in other aspects of my life, that this low vibration was just where I would have to stay. Until the universe brought me to Jen and KIN!"

Bella went on to claim that Kin products sit "boldly at the intersection of feeling good and living well", and feature ingredients such as Gaba, a naturally-occurring nootropic chemical that promotes relaxation, and Tyrosine, a mood enhancer.

And she noted that the drink may be a good option for people who are looking to cut down on alcohol.

"Whether you are sober, trying to cut down, or just want something to mix with, Kin will be the first to bring braincare to the bar," the 24-year-old added. "If it feels unauthentic to me, it's hard for me to do what I do best. That's why I am so passionate about sharing with you my newest endeavour, so we can help bring happiness back into the world, through brain health."
