To be alive is to experience stress. Whether it’s coming from your job, relationships, or some other aspect of your daily life, stress is ever-present. Even positive life events like a wedding, new baby, or job promotion can be stressful! The key to positively coping with stress is to use a comprehensive stress management plan that effectively supports your mind and body during stressful times. Dietary supplements like theanine, GABA, and 5-HTP can help relieve symptoms of stress with regards to supporting healthy mood, mental focus, and sense of relaxation.
Tips to Manage Stress
This broad approach to a stressful season involves four equally important areas:
- Calm your mind and body with individualized relaxation techniques
- Follow a healthy lifestyle that includes quality sleep and regular physical activity
- Eat a healthful, whole foods diet
- Use key dietary stress supplements such as Stress-Relax®
“You can’t always control what goes on outside, but you can control what goes on inside.”
When it comes to dietary supplements, there are so many great options.
Mental Calm and Focus: GABA
Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a natural, calming agent in the brain. It appears that many who experience occasional nervousness, difficulty sleeping, and other negative neurological effects don’t make sufficient levels of GABA.
Pharma GABA® is a unique, clinically tested form of GABA shown to be more effective than synthetic GABA in helping calm a racing mind. When taken orally, this special form of the nutrient is absorbed through the gut and binds to receptors in the peripheral nervous system. This triggers a relaxation response by the parasympathetic nervous system within minutes.
Stress-Relax® Pharma GABA® can help calm and relax your mind in as little as five minutes! The chewable GABA is really quick.
Calm and Relaxation: Theanine
When stressed, do you ever just want to curl up with a nice cup of green tea? A cup of tea can be so comforting. This is due in part because it contains the relaxation-inducing amino acid L-theanine or theanine, for short. Theanine is actually a precursor to GABA and works similarly: it helps calm and relax the mind. Take it prior to sleep to calm a racing mind. Students love it to help them stay relaxed and focused during stressful exam periods.
Stress-Relax® Suntheanine® capsules are a clinically supported, pure form of theanine. Suntheanine is not an extract of green tea. Notably, it is produced via a patented fermentation process that mimics the natural process in green tea leaves. It provides profoundly calming and relaxing benefits, yet is non-drowsy. Notice positive effects within 30–40 minutes! Get really fast action with the chewable theanine tablets.
Support a Healthy Mood: 5-HTP
Happiness and general well-being are closely tied to the secretion of various hormones, neurotransmitters, and other chemical messengers. One of these, serotonin, has a powerful influence over our emotional state and sleep habits. Low mood is clinically linked to low serotonin levels. Serotonin is made in our bodies, but the building blocks it needs are often lacking. Natural Factors 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) provides those necessary building blocks in the form of 5-hydroxytryptophan, a direct precursor to serotonin. 5-HTP is clinically shown to enhance mood and promote sleep quality. How? Emotional support occurs via the boost to serotonin levels. 5-HTP boosts serotonin levels without unpleasant side effects and does not create dependence.
As you prepare for the holiday season, be proactive about stress. Take care of yourself! If you’re stressed and you know it, say “Stress Relax”! Consider theanine for calm mental focus without drowsiness. Consider GABA when occasional nervousness strikes, especially with a racing mind. Lastly, help boost your mood naturally with 5-HTP emotional support.
