Own Your Stress, Own Your Freedom
In today’s society, stress is taking a major toll on the health of the majority of the American population. While there is such a thing as good stress, negative stress occurs in all areas of life concerning one’s nutrition, physical, emotional, spiritual, psychological, and even spiritual factors. Exercise, which is seen as the best practice to manage or help minimize stress, can even act as a stressor if done too intensely or without receiving proper amounts of rest. Emotional struggles like anxiety, fear, depression, or experiencing grief and frustration can also impact one’s stress levels. Medical conditions like surgery, chronic illness, or experiencing an infection can cause stress to the metabolic system as well. The body is susceptible to stress in more ways than just one, including environmental and chemical exposures.
Whether your stress is acute or chronic in nature is important in understanding how you should attempt to manage it. Chronic stress sounds like exactly what it is: chronic. It brings upon a broad range of health problems like lowered thyroid function, alterations in blood sugar, exhaustion, weight gain, the breakdown of muscles and more. Hormonal changes such as these can affect multiple body systems and in order to avoid this, it is important to manage your stress before it begins to manage you.
With all of this information presented, it seems like there’s no definitive answer in managing stress completely, but there is. Major lifestyle changes like finding a new job or leaving behind the responsibilities life and our family demands from us is nearly impossible. Instead, to better cope or deal with the stressors involved in these aspects, it is best to make habitual changes. Avoiding poor dietary choices, as well as exercising and receiving an adequate amount of sleep are priority when attempting to balance levels of stress.
Once you begin to practice healthier habits, the addition of nutritional supplements like L-Theanine, Relora 250, and GABA Calm into your diet can help tremendously. These help to lower stress hormones and help induce a calming effect when used throughout the day. Probiotics like our Extra Strength Probiotic can help to balance and support the immune system and overall gut health. Multiple combination products are also available in the form of Relaxation Formulas, which help to create a calm effect, promoting better sleep. Vitamin B in higher potencies found in our Super Stress Support and Vitamin B-Complex also help facilitate proper metabolic breakdown while providing nutritional support. While these supplements don’t need to be taken simultaneously, we can help provide you with a supplement regimen which suits your needs in order to help you better manage your stress, before it manages you.
