Supplements to support a healthy stress response*
Erin Stokes, Naturopathic Doctor, MegaFood Medical Director | Nov. 2020
Stress is a fact of modern life. We all experience stressors every day, yet our perception of stress and how we respond to it, is individual. For some it impacts our ability to focus, for others our sleep, and if left unchecked long enough, our day-to-day energy and well-being.
When you're dealing with occasional stress and the impact it can have, you might not automatically think about supplements - after all, you’ve got a lot on your mind. In addition to lifestyle changes, such as meditation and yoga, supplements can be another ally for you. To that end, MegaFood has a range of different products that support your body's ability to respond to life’s everyday stressors. Let’s take a look at each one, and how they tackle the different ways we experience stress.
MegaFood Stress Protect* features herbal adaptogens that promote a healthy stress response in order to help ward off fatigue and maintain healthy immune function.* Adaptogens are a group of botanicals that aid our ability to respond to stressors. Sensoril® ashwagandha, a clinically-researched extract, has been shown to maintain healthy cortisol levels to help support the body's response to stress.* We pair this with an adaptogenic herb blend of rhodiola root, schisandra berries, astragalus root and holy basil leaf to support a reduction in feelings of stress.* Unlike Adrenal Strength, Stress Protect* is an herbal-only formula.
Stress Protect* is ideal for:
- Supporting healthy cortisol levels associated with stress*
- Adaptogens to support a healthy stress response.*
- Herbal stress support*
B-UnStressed™ is a great place to start for those that want to replace some of the key nutrients that can be depleted during times of emotional, mental, and physical stress.* Additionally, vitamin C, and zinc support the body’s immune response during times of stress.* Along with nutritional stress-support, we include our Soothing Herbal Blend to deliver supportive organic herbs, including organic ashwagandha, organic chamomile flower and organic astragalus root.*
B-UnStressed™ is ideal for:
- Occasional stress
- Immune support related to stress
- Maintenance formula (taken daily for support)
Sometimes stress can go unchecked, and when that happens, our adrenals (the heavy-hitters when it comes to stress) get fatigued and need some extra TLC. Adrenal Strength provides nutrients and herbs to help nourish adrenal glands and support a healthy response to everyday physical, mental and emotional stress.* Sensoril® Ashwagandha, a clinically-studied extract derived from ashwagandha root and leaves has been shown to promote feelings of well-being and balance.* It can be taken daily to help promote a healthy stress response and ward off fatigue, and contains reishi mushroom, astragalus, and schisandra to offer additional support.*
Adrenal Strength® is ideal for:
- Fatigue associated with stress*
- Improved outlook and emotional balance*
- Nourishing stress-support systems*
When stress creeps up - those nagging “what-ifs” and a flood of “to dos” - it can be challenging to stay focused on the task at hand. Fortunately for us, herbal and nutritional supplements have some solutions that can help us break through the fog. MegaFood Adult B-Centered is crafted with a blend of B vitamins and herbs that support healthy cognitive function.* We craft it with the active form of vitamin B6, as well as the methylated forms of folate and B12 for those who specifically desire methylated forms. These are paired with lemon balm, and L-theanine to support the body’s stress response, mental function, and emotional well-being* Together these were formulated to support healthy cognitive function* - perfect for those times you need a little extra focus to get you through the day.
Adult B-Centered™ is ideal for:
- Lack of focus associated with stress*
- Promoting a sense of calm*
- Can be taken daily or as needed
While learning to overcome and manage stress can be a lifelong endeavor, nutritional and botanical support can be a first step in getting you through the tough times.
