5 Vitamins That Reduce Stress

by

You may feel there’s nothing you can do about stress–the bills won’t stop coming, there will never be more hours in the day, and your work and family responsibilities will always be demanding. But, you have more control over stress than you might think! Stress management is all about taking charge: of your lifestyle, thoughts, emotions, and the way you deal with problems. No matter how stressful your life seems, there are steps you can take to relieve the pressure and regain control.

For example, let’s talk about Cortisol, which is a life-sustaining adrenal hormone essential to maintaining homeostasis. Called “the stress hormone,” cortisol influences, regulates, and modulates many of the changes that occur in the body in response to stress. Fortunately, there are supplements you can take to manage your cortisol levels.

Cortisol Manager 
– Safe: promotes relaxation with no habit-forming ingredients
– Natural: will not cause morning grogginess
– Effective: supports improved sleep

Relora 
Relora works by balancing the hypothalamus in the brain, which regulates important functions such as hormone levels, temperature, weight, and sleep cycles. Relora also helps to balance the entire HPA axis (hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis), which is a central hormone pathway.

Vitamin C
The present RDA for vitamin C for adults is 60 milligrams. A far cry from the 1,000 mg found helpful in the stress study. But, there’s a growing belief that the RDA for vitamin C is vastly outdated. The current RDA was set decades ago and is based on the amount of the vitamin needed to ward off scurvy. You can safely take up to 5,000mg/day split in multiple doses

Ashwagandha
This plant helps you to sleep better, not by masking the effects of stress, which often cause insomnia, but by distressing the body so that the natural circadian rhythms can be balanced and restored. It is so good at reducing stress, and can even clear up stress-related ulcers with prolonged use.

Holy Basil
In addition to managing diabetes by controlling blood sugar levels, doctors say that the hypoglycemic effects of holy basil is possibly due to its ability to regulate and reduce serum cortisol levels

*Remember to check with your doctor before adding over the counter supplements to your diet.
