Stress Neutraceuticals BP812ET Dietary supplements and Nutraceuticals
Nutraceutical options for addressing some of the most common issues associated with stress
The B-complex vitamins are intimately involved in the function of the nervous system, and so can play a role in helping to counter some of the negative effects of stress. In fact, the ability of humans to respond to stress can be influenced by nutritional status—including the status of key B vitamins.
Research has demonstrated that phosphatidylserine (PS) was able to blunt the release of cortisol—the “stress hormone”—in response to exercise stress. In some cases, PS supplementation also resulted in improved mood
The amino acid L-theanine has been shown to increase both serotonin and dopamine production, and possibly gamma amino butyric acid (GABA) as well.
Evidence from human electroencephalograph (EEG) studies show that it also significantly increases brain activity in the alpha frequency band, which indicates that it relaxes the mind without inducing drowsiness. Other research indicates that L-theanine has a significant effect on improving mental alertness while promoting relaxation. Additional studies have shown that supplementation with L-theanine resulted in a reduction in some physiological indicators of stress within 15 minutes, suppressed the initial stress response of students, and significantly reduced anxiety and reduced the blood-pressure increase in high-stress-response adults.
Rhodiola Rosea Root Extract
Rhodiola rosea root, another adaptogen, has been used for centuries in the traditional systems of healthcare throughout Russia, Scandinavia, and other countries where it was used to increase physical endurance, work productivity, and longevity, as well as to treat fatigue, mood, and promote a healthy nervous system
Panax ginseng root, or ginseng for short, is a traditional Chinese herb which has been used for thousands of years in various aspects of healthcare. It is also one of the most widely researched herbs in modern science with over 5,000 published studies.
Ginseng helps stabilize physiological processes and promote homeostasis, especially in the case of stress and fatigue. This property was seen in two human clinical studies examining the effects of ginseng on mental performance
