Understanding Stress - Natural Stress Supplements, Herbs & Nutrients


Most North Americans lead ambitious lives and managing careers, relationships and day to day tasks can often create acute and chronic stress which many people describe as mood imbalances, inability to focus or "burn out". A consequence of chronic stress is consistently elevated levels of the stress hormone Cortisol. When chronically elevated, Cortisol is implicated in various serious illnesses. Adaptogens are substances that assist the body in 'adapting' to stress while mitigating the harmful effects of chronic stress and elevated cortisol. They balance neurotransmitter levels to reduce stress, balance mood and improve concentration.
