If you're viewing this page you know what stress is so we'll save you the definition. While everyone has specific life stressors, factors related to job pressure, money, health, and relationships tend to be the most common. Today's "high-stress" world can negatively encourage lifestyle habits that deprive us of adequate rest and exercise, along with dietary habits laden with caffeine and refined sugars causing a stress and toll on our adrenal glands that aid in aspects such as glucose metabolism, immune function, normal blood pressure, etc. Stress can be acute or chronic and lead to fatigue, headaches, upset stomach, nervousness, and irritability or anger.Regular exercise, adequate sleep, and good nutrition are some of the best ways to better equip your body to combat stress, but several vitamins and supplements containing any of the following ingredients may help:
- Rhodiola rosea
- Melatonin (sleep related)
- B complex vitamins
Adrenal support is important to fight these negative affects of stress on our lives.
