Managing stress requires multiple approaches. These include improving eating habits to maintain your nutrient reserves, incorporating mindful practices that help diffuse stress, and taking some of the specific nutritional supplements shown to have anti-stress benefits. Incorporating all three approaches provides the best shield against the stresses life throws at us.
G-SOOTHE ANTI-STRESS AND CALMING BLEND uses all-natural, powerful ingredients from natural extracts, which will not cause adverse effects. Its blend of potent herbs, including Rhodiola, Skullcap, Gaba, Ashwagandha, and St. John’s Wort, has intrinsic antidepressant properties and provides you with essential nutrients for healthy brain function.*
B Vitamins help the nervous system, aiding in improved cognitive function. The powerful blend of Gaba and Chamomile has anti-anxiety properties that reduce stress and improve sleep. The 5-HTP produced from Griffonia seed extract aid in the production of Serotonin by increasing stress tolerance and sleep quality. *
The B-complex Vitamins have been recognized as anti-anxiety and anti-stress nutrients since the 1940s—they are also among the first to be depleted during times of stress. The body needs these vitamins, along with several other nutrients, to make Serotonin and other calming neurotransmitters.*
In one of its many important roles in the body, Magnesium acts as a sort of “gatekeeper,” helping to move Calcium (which is excitatory) in and out of the cells. Part of the stress response involves Calcium entering neurons in the brain, causing them to fire; if there isn’t sufficient Magnesium to move Calcium out of the cell, neurons become overloaded with Calcium, fire too frequently, and eventually die. Magnesium can also suppress the release of stress hormones and may prevent the adrenal hormones from penetrating the blood-brain barrier. It is another nutrient that is quickly depleted in stressful times.*
Gamma Aminobutyric Acid (GABA) is both an amino acid and the body’s primary calming neurotransmitter. It helps the brain filter out non-essential sensory information, sort of like blocking out background noise. By doing this, it allows the brain to deal with the most important sensory information, leading to improved mental focus and reduced anxiety.*
This amino acid, found in Green Tea, boosts the brain’s levels of alpha waves, which promote a combination of relaxation and mental sharpness, similar to the effects of meditation. It also appears to increase brain levels of GABA.*
Some herbs are considered adaptogens, meaning that they enhance the body’s ability to adapt to stress. Rhodiola (Rhodiola rosea) improves adrenal function and can help with stress-related fatigue. Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) has a long history of use in Ayurvedic medicine and is sometimes called “Indian ginseng.” It can help people suffering from stress-related fatigue.*
