Are you tired of feeling stressed? | Mr Vitamins
Stress is a word on everyone’s lips these days. Short-term stress is a necessary protective mechanism of your body, however living in the modern world can expose you to different stressors on a daily basis. Over time this can become a problem if you’re not dealing with these stressors effectively. Long term stress can negatively affect the way you function day to day. Symptoms such as fatigue, anxiety, constant worry, poor digestion and lack of sleep can be a real problem.

A healthy diet and lifestyle

These are essential if you want to reduce the effects of stress. Here are some suggestions:

15 ways to reduce stress

  1. Include plenty of good quality protein and fats in your diet, especially omega 3 fats
  2. Have plenty of vegetables daily
  3. Eat foods rich in magnesium
  4. Drink plenty of water
  5. Avoid sugar and processed foods
  6. Laugh out loud
  7. Connect with others
  8. Sleep more
  9. Learn to say no
  10. Ask for help/delegate tasks
  11. Turn off the news
  12. Slow down
  13. Be grateful
  14. Practice mindful meditation
  15. Spend time outdoors
However these might not always be enough.

Traditional herbs can help provide natural relief

Many traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic herbal medicines such Holy Basil, Withania and Magnoliaare used for their potent adaptogenic (anti-stress, rejuvenating) actions. These can be very helpful when you’re experiencing stress and worry. The Ayurvedic herb Holy Basil also known as Tulsi has shown to be very beneficial in the management of symptoms of stress such as:
  • Fatigue­­
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Inability to focus
  • Forgetfulness

Nutrients increase resistance to stress

Many different nutrients such as B vitamins, choline, inositoland alpha-lipoic acid are necessary for proper functioning of your nervousand adrenal systems. When both of these systems are working well you’re better equipped to cope with stress. The B vitamin group specifically is required for proper nerveand cognitive (brain) function. B vitamins are also essential for energy production within the mitochondria (‘powerhouse’) of your cells. The lesser known amino acid Theanine found in Green Teacan improve your mental alertness, focussed attention and ability to relax.
