The classic definition of stress is ‘any real or imagined threat, and your body’s response to it’. Stress is often considered a mind-altering state and the causes of stress produce a physical reaction in the body.
There are many types of stressful situations from the mental pressure to perform well in our jobs to time pressure when we have many things to do. Stress in small amounts is actually beneficial because it gets us motivated to carry out tasks efficiently but ongoing stress is detrimental to the body and produces a cascade of reactions in the body including symptoms of anxiety, sleep problems, skin reactions, headaches and stomach problems.
The adrenals are the body’s glands that produce cortisol, the main stress hormone responsible for the symptoms of anxiety and low mood. In order to alleviate the symptoms of anxiety, low mood and often lower energy levels, we need to take vitamins and supplements to reduce cortisol and adrenal stress.
