My Favourite Products for Stress
March 10, 2019
Who doesn't feel stressed in this day and age? People who take these products, that's who! These are great for anyone who is feeling overwhelmed or like they are reaching burnout. My top three favourite products for stress are:
1. Thorne Stress B Complex: B vitamins are incredibly important for helping us adapt and respond to stress in a healthy way. This product is great because it is a B complex, meaning that it contains various B vitamins rather than just one. B vitamins work well together, so taking them together in this complex makes sense. And since this product is designed specifically for stress, it contains higher amounts of the B vitamins that are the most crucial for stress adaptation (B5, for example).
2. AOR Ortho Adapt: This is one of my absolute favourite products, because it targets the adrenals. The adrenal glands sit on top of our kidneys and emit cortisol, which is the stress hormone. This product contains actual adrenal cortex, along with other ingredients that benefit the adrenal glands, including: vitamin C, licorice extract, Siberian ginseng, and rhodiola.
3. St. Francis Ashwagandha: Herbs that help us to better adapt to stress are called adaptogens. That's exactly what ashwagandha is. It helps to calm the nerves and is a useful sleep aid. It can also be a helpful memory enhancer. This product is also used in Ayurvedic medicine, and it's becoming more and more popular in Western culture as well. I suggest taking it before you go to sleep. It can help to calm your mind and get you into a more peaceful, relaxed state before hitting the hay.
