Stress Management Information & Research

Which supplements can help manage stress?

While potentially stressful situations are unavoidable, our reaction to them does not have to be. Multivitamins (especially the B complex and vitamin C), omega-3 fatty acids, L-theanine, phosphatidylserine, L-tryptophan, bioactive milk peptides, probiotics, DHEA, adaptogenic herbs (holy basil, ashwagandha, bacopa, lemon balm, saffron, ginseng, rhodiola, amla, schisandra, cordyceps, magnolia and phellodendron) and melatonin prior to sleep are among the nutrients that can help support healthy stress management.

How does ashwagandha support healthy stress management?

Preclinical studies show that ashwagandha supports healthy mitochondrial activity, promotes healthy central nervous system signaling, supports against oxidative stress and encourages healthy immune system function, which suggests that it may help support a healthy stress response.

What are some nutrients to manage stress?

In the long run, exercise can help support healthy balance of cortisol, our main stress hormone. Physical activity also releases endorphins, compounds that encourage healthy mood and can help support healthy stress management. Nutrients like the compounds in lemon balm extract as well as theanine can help promote a calm and relaxed state. In addition, botanicals like magnolia and lychee fruit may help to modulate cortisol levels.
