How Stress Affects Us
First, let's take a look at how stress works on the body. When we are under stress it triggers the release of cortisol in the body. This raises blood sugar levels and blood pressure. That is why often when we are stressed we crave sugary and fatty comfort foods. This extra cortisol release can lead to the body storing body fat, and interfere with getting good quality sleep which can in turn lead to weight gain, reduced energy levels, poor memory, decreased cognitive function and negative effects on the immune system. Stress can also affect digestion, cause heartburn, stomach cramping and diarrhea and research is showing it can affect brain tissue that regulates emotions and self-control. It can also be linked to skin conditions such as psoriasis and acne, and to an increase in risk of stroke.
Coping with Stress Simply
Here is a simple, convenient recipe to support your body at times when stress takes over to get you over the hump until your current life crisis passes.
1 to 4 supplement packets containing 2 kinds of bluegreen algae, enzyme, and probiotics
-- plus one of the following options --
1 to 2 capsules of this immune system support supplement
1 to 2 capsules of coenzyme Q10
1 to 2 capsules of this stem cell support supplement
How It Works
Why does this simple recipe work in coping with stress? Your body needs extra nutritional support to counteract the effects of stress. The supplement packets are quick and easy to take, have blue green algae for mental clarity and physical energy, enzymes to support digestion and get the most nutrition out of the food you eat and probiotics to provide an extra boost to the digestive system. Then, depending on which supplement you choose from the list, you get additional benefits. Giving your immune system strong support, promoting heart and gum health, plus providing cellular and physical energy with coenzyme Q10 or promoting stem cell production in your body and supporting the body's healing processes.
More Natural Solutions for Coping With Stress
Eating foods with magnesium, B vitamins and chlorophyll can also help in relieving stress. As your body becomes stressed it uses up these stress relievers more quickly so that just when you need them the most, they are the least available to you. Eating lots of leafy greens, halibut, oysters, nuts and seeds can give you the extra nutrition you need to support your body through the times you are coping with stress.
Our bodies also need more proteins when we are under stress. Be sure to get the "good proteins" though, as in the type from whole grains, soy, sprouts and bluegreen algae. Good proteins support your body's ability to handle stress, both physically and mentally. If you can't get all the extra protein you need from your food, consider taking this supplement with bluegreen algae and sprouts. Another great supplement to add to your diet is this one with nine different algae rich in minerals and phytonutrients, combined for full-spectrum nutrition.
Don't get caught in the dilemma of not having the stress relieving vitamins and nutrients you need when stress takes over. Give our simple supplement recipe a try and load up on stress relieving foods to literally eat your way out of the health concerns associated with a stressful lifestyle. Then find activities that work for you to help you in coping with stress whether it's a hobby, going for walks in the woods, meditation, or whatever helps you "get away from it all" for a while. Learning ways to help yourself in coping with stress will make for a happier, healthier you.
