SPOTLIGHT ON STRESS

Begin your stress management journey here

Stress is pervasive and potentially harmful. For some of us it even seems to be a way of life. We feel pressured to keep up with jobs, family and the multitude of responsibilities demanded of us in our daily lives. This constant bombardment leaves many of us anxious, depressed and exhausted. Is this what we call 'living our best lives'?
Relaxation is not just pleasure. It is vital to our health. And for many we need to relearn how to do it. We’re just too stressed.

Any condition that harms the body or damages, breaks down, or causes the death of few of many cells is defined as stress.

If the diet is adequate, repair quickly occurs, but when rebuilding fails to keep pace with destruction, illness is produced. Disease results from multiple stresses such as anxiety, overwork, perhaps bacterial or viral attack, an inadequate diet, sleep and exercise.

Unfortunately it usually brings on numerous other stresses: poor appetite, nausea, vomiting, faulty absorption, fever, pain, diarrhea, dehydration, high urinary losses of many nutrients, etc

Sally T. Stress Less

Stress Less is a high potency B-complex formulation with added stress busters to boost the body’s ability to handle the effects of stress whilst simultaneously reducing stress symptoms and lethargy.

These nutrients have been selected to boost and support the adrenal glands during a stressful situation whether emotional, mental, physical, and chemical and even spiritual which affects the cellular homeostasis of cells. Thus the negative physiological effects of stress are reduced.

This scientific formula has been used over the years and has shown to be effective in dealing with the specific negative biochemical effects experienced during “distress.” Vitamin C, Pantothenic Acid, Magnesium, and Calcium, are nutrients required in much larger concentrations during stressful situations and especially when prolonged for an extended period of time. The other B vitamins are also required in higher amounts and some of these are used as co-factors in the metabolic process. Amino acid requirements are also increased in stress conditions.

Suggested uses that it can be helpful for:

– All stressful situations
– Busy lifestyles
– Boost adrenals
– Before, during and after stressful event
– Excessive exercise

Sally T. Ca Pantothenate 300mg;

Pantothenic acid, a B-vitamin, is essential for normal physiological functions. It is a precursor of co-enzyme A (CoA) and acyl, a carrier protein of fatty acid synthase, which are involved in more than 100 different metabolic pathways including energy metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and lipids, and the synthesis of lipids, neurotransmitters, steroid hormones, porphyrins and haemoglobin.

Suggested uses:
– Osteoarthritis
– Adrenal function
– Co-enzyme A
– Hypoglycaemia
– Weight management

Sally T. L-Theanine 300mg;

Studies have shown that L-Theanine, at realistic dietary levels, has a significant effect on the general state of mental alertness or arousal and alpha activity. Theanine boosts GABA (an inhibitory neurotransmitter) in the brain and it also tones down some of the stimulating neurotransmitters that make you anxious. It has also been shown to boost brain dopamine – which is one of the “feel good” neurotransmitters – and this might be the reason many people report feelings of well-being and mental focus when they take Theanine.

Which is better for anxiety – GABA or Theanine?
GABA is found naturally in your brain, and low levels seem to be related to some types of anxiety. It makes sense that you would want to increase your GABA levels if you are suffering from anxiety. Some people have great results from taking a straight GABA supplement, but it doesn’t cross into the brain very easily, so most of the GABA taken might not get to where it’s needed, and it’s hard to regulate your brain levels this way.

On the other hand, Theanine does cross the blood-brain barrier quite well, so it is an effective way to boost brain GABA.

Theanine probably should be considered as herbal although it is chemically an amino acid, and doesn’t form part of any protein.

Tea contains this unique amino acid L-Theanine and it is a rich source of flavonoid antioxidants. It has a direct effect on the brain and may modulate aspects of brain function in humans.

Sally T. Ashwagandha 500mg;

Ashwagandha is a herb which originated in India over 3000 years ago. Its botanical name is Withania somnifera, but is also commonly known as Indian ginseng, poison gooseberry, or winter cherry. It is a plant in the Solanaceae or nightshade family. Though used for a variety of medical issues, one of the best known is the reduction of cortisol levels in periods of stress.

Suggested uses:
– May assist with reducing stress hormone levels
– If stress in our lives is only occasional, and we take adequate time for rest, relaxation and sleep to restore cortisol and stress hormones, then occasional stress cortisol release will not be a problem. But, if we live a typical modern Western lifestyle, we are subject to chronic stress, with inadequate nutrition, rest, relaxation and sleep, and are subject to chronic excessive cortisol levels
– Can assist with getting a good night’s sleep
