10 Nutritional Supplements to Help with Stress

Stress has been called the wear and tear of life.

Stress can be caused by so many reasons. But stress is a highly personal reaction to something in your life. Something that can give one person excitement and energy may be stress to another.

This disorder causes fight-or-flight hormones to flood the body, and if the stress is prolonged, it cause decreased energy, impaired resistance to infection.

AND a host of physical complaints like:
• Headaches
• Gastrointestinal problems
• High blood pressure
• Dizziness
• Loss of appetite
• Over eating

Treatment consists of identifying and reducing the triggers of stress and replenishing the nutrients expended in the stress response.

10 Nutritional Supplements and Nutrients That Help

1. A high-quality multivitamin and mineral formula, high in B vitamins that have an anti-stress effect.

2. Fish or squid oil (1 gram daily). Research shows that the omega-3 fatty acids in these oils significantly blunt adrenal (cortisol) activation brought on by mental stress.

3. Adaptogenic herbs such as ashwaganda, ginseng, licorice root, and rhodiola. These supplements increase resistance to stress, anxiety, and fatigue.

4. Magnesium (as a broad-spectrum form or as magnesium glycinate), 400 milligrams daily. Magnesium is a critical mineral involved in cellular energy production and is depleted by stress. Collard greens and parsley are good sources of magnesium.

5. Vitamin C, at least 5,000 mg daily. This core vitamin is also depleted by stress and is critical for adrenal function. Red pepper, kale, and collard greens are good sources of vitamin C.

6. Zinc is lost during the stress reaction and must be replenished.
Ginger, parsley and carrots are good sources of zinc.

7. Potassium is lost during the stress reaction and must be replenished. Parsley, Swiss chard and spinach are good sources of potassium.

8. Chromium is lost during the stress reaction and must be replenished. Brewer’s yeast is a good source of chromium.

9. Beta- Carotene is an antioxidant, and so helps protect the body during stress reactions. Carrots, collard greens and parsley are good sources of beta-carotene.

10. Pantothenic acid is lost during the stress reaction and must be replenished. Broccoli and kale are good sources of pantothenic acid.
