Living with chronic stress at work or at home is an all-too familiar scenario for many of us these days. Excess stress can create hormonal imbalances that lead to premature aging and weight gain.
Chronic daily stress (i.e. work, school or constant worrying) can rapidly deplete the brain's serotonin reserves, causing depression, low stress adaptation, sleep disturbances and excessive cravings for sweet and starchy foods. A few common signs of weak adrenal function are; overeating and weight gain, fatigue, irritability, chronic tiredness, oversleeping and frequent immune system rundown.

Natural Solutions for Reducing Stress
The good news is that certain natural ingredients can help to normalize the body’s response to stress, helping to balance cortisol levels, and reduce the negative effects of chronic stress. Ultimate Vegan Anti-Stress includes all natural, plant-based adaptogens like rhodiola, ashwagandha, lemon balm and valerian root to help keep stress under control. Rhodiola, for example, is one of the best known and most effective adaptogens available. Rhodiola has been studied in many individuals exposed to chronic stress, including doctors, students and military cadets, and has been shown over and over to reduce the negative effects of stress and to improve physical and mental endurance. Ultimate Vegan Anti-Stress also inlcudes ashwagandha, which has been shown to reduce stress and the symptoms of chronic fatigue. Valerian root and lemon balm are both well known for their calming and relaxing properties and can help to reduce stress and fatigue.
In addition to natural stress-reducing adaptogens, Ultimate Vegan Anti-Stress contains citrus bioflavonoids and quercetin: powerful antioxidants that can help to repair and prevent the damaging effects that stress can cause to the body’s tissues and organs.
By using the Ultimate Vegan Anti-Stress on a regular basis – in the evening – you can aid your body’s ability to recover from the day’s unrelenting stress toll and wake up feeling refreshed.
