Stress can hit you when you least expect it.
Over the past weekend, flooding ravaged the valley, leaving homes, businesses, and vehicles underwater. Add in wildfires, a pandemic that has been raging for over a year – it feels like you can’t catch a break!
All of that doesn’t even take into account the acute stressors we face every day, running late to pick up the kiddos from school, missing a deadline at work, or getting hit with an unexpected expense…
I’ve got news for you though….The only way to get rid of all the stress in your life is to die.
Yes, you read that correctly!
If you are alive, you are going to have stress and the goal is to learn how to manage that stress.
The secret sauce lies in learning how to respond to it rather than react to it….
Stress + The Body
Before we jump into how we respond as opposed to reacting to stress, I think it is important to understand its role in the body. First, we have to take a look at how the brain operates. Your hypothalamus can be described as a tiny control tower for your brain. When faced with stress, the “control tower” sends a message, in the form of a hormone, to tell the body how to respond.
Responses to stress include 3 options, fight, flight, or freeze… Physiologically you might experience your breathing quicken, your muscles tense as your body prepares to react quickly to the situation at hand.
But what happens when we are consistently in a “fight or flight” state? The answer is when the stress response keeps firing, day after day, it could put your health at serious risk.
Symptoms of chronic stress include:
Beyond that, stress can play a major role in the development of:
- Increased risk of heart attacks
- Fertility issues
- High blood pressure
- Lowered immunity
- GI issues & stomach pain
- Loss of libido
- And much more
So how do we move on from this and learn to “chill out”?
Use these tips to prevent or reduce chronic stress.
1. Re-balance your Work/Life Time
2. Get in Some Regular Exercise
3. Eat Well and Limit Alcohol and Stimulants
4. Connect with Supportive People
5. Carve Out Time for Creativity
6. Practice Meditation, Stress Reduction, and/or Yoga
7. Get your ZZZ’s
8. Bond with Your Pet
9. Take a Vacation
10. See a Physician, Counselor, Coach, or Therapist
In addition to these steps, supplementation can support your physiology and better position you to deal with times that seem to be out of your control.
This is why I have created Adrenal Boost Supreme!
When utilized with proper lifestyle changes this supplement can really support your body and response to stressful situations. And I want you to know that this is not a magic bullet. There are no magic bullets!!!! But coupled with a few of the methods listed above, these capsules can help you to lower the negative effects stress has on your body.
Adrenal Boost Supreme pairs glandulars with targeted nutrients to support your body’s response to everyday stressors. Among the comprehensive blend of nutrients are high-potency pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), Vitamin C, Activated B Vitamins, and mineral amino acid chelates. Gland and organ tissues are derived from an Argentinian bovine source that ensures safety and purity for you.
For those of you that like the research you will find the following of interest…
Clinical research supports the premise that micronutrient supplementation can favorably support the stress response in a variety of circumstances. In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled (RDBPC) trial, high-potency doses of B vitamins and vitamin C along with an array of minerals were studied for their effects on perceived stress scores (measuring one’s self-perception of stress) in 215 humans aged 30 to 55 years.
Results revealed significant improvements on the perceived stress scale (PSS), the profile of mood states (POMS), and the general health questionnaire (GHQ-12) for those taking a multivitamin/mineral supplement. Another RDBPC study of 80 people revealed consistent and statistically significant modulation in anxiety and perceived stress in those who took a high-potency multivitamin/mineral supplement compared to those who took the placebo.
Participants taking the supplement also reported feeling less tired and better able to concentrate compared to their placebo-taking counterparts. Similar results were achieved in a double-blind, placebo-controlled, double-center study of 300 subjects taking a multivitamin/mineral supplement, with significant improvement in baseline stress scores. The levels of vitamin C, riboflavin, B6, pantothenic acid, and zinc provided in the recommended dose of two Adrenal Boost Supreme capsules twice daily meets or exceeds the levels used in these clinical studies. The recommended daily dose of four capsules also provides 30 mg of niacin (compared to 50 mg used in studies) and 90 mg of magnesium (compared to 100 mg used in studies).
Bottom line -this shit works!!! Targeted nutritional support helps your body to stay strong and more resilient.
