Liquid Herbal Complex for Stress Relief
Stress is the most common dis-ease of the modern age. In our current high-stress culture, the body’s stress response is activated so often that functioning often doesn’t have a chance to return to normal, producing chronic stress and unhealthy levels of the'stress hormone' cortisol.
High levels of cortisol cause cells to die in the thymus gland, spleen and lymph nodes, the centres of immune cell production and activity
|The Adrenal Glands and Stress: High stress levels, which are often accompanied by an unhealthy lifestyle, can weaken the adrenal glands. When stress continues over a long time, the adrenal glands’ response to this stress can deplete the body's immunity, hormonal and energy reserves. .
Stress increases your body's need for specific nutrients and puts additional demand on the adrenal glands, ultimately leading to excessive fatigue, impaired cognitive performance, lowered immunity, high blood pressure and a lowered quality of life.
