Stress and Mood Support
Stress affects people in many different ways. Sometimes stress presents as general worry or an overactive mind, other times it can present as a constant feeling of anxiousness. Regardless, stress can be mentally, emotionally, and physically exhausting.
Left unchecked, stress can lead to a host of issues, such as sleep problems, muscle tension, weight gain, and even mood imbalance. In fact, stress can have negative ramifications for many of the body’s systems.
Your body has what is known as a stress feedback loop, which is a natural, automatic hormonal response to stressful events — some call it fight-or-flight. During such times, stress hormones such as cortisol and epinephrine are released.
This hormonal response is helpful during fight-or-flight events; when the event ends the levels return to normal. However, chronic stress, no matter how it manifests, can contribute to a host of health conditions.

Thankfully, there is hope for those struggling with stress. One of the active ingredients in our stress and mood supplements is ashwagandha extract.
