You must’ve heard the old adage that stress kills – and it’s absolutely true.
The chronic stress that comes from worrying about relationships… or your job… or your health… or paying the bills can make you a sitting duck for everything from heart disease to diabetes.
And most people who head to their docs for help end up leaving with a prescription for a powerful, addictive anti-anxiety drugs like Xanax – or an antidepressant that cause everything from weight gain to suicidal thoughts.
But if you’re ready to finally beat stress for good – without all the side effects that come with prescription drugs – there’s a powerful natural remedy that provides relief fast.
And you can pick it up just about anywhere.
I’m talking about B vitamins, also known as a B complex. And adding a simple B complex supplements to your daily supplement regimen can help melt away even the toughest stress.
In one study, patients suffering from chronic stress were given a daily, high-dose B complex vitamin. And after just three months, they reported dramatic reductions in their workplace stress.
And that makes perfect sense. B vitamins – especially folic acid, B12 and B6 – play a critical role in mood and mental function.
Without adequate levels of vitamin B on board, your body is unable to manufacture key neurotransmitters it needs to deal with stress, including serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine.
Now, as I said, this study on B complex vitamins looked at patients after three months – but many people experience relief much faster than that. Especially if you’re deficient in B vitamins, you could notice a real difference in just weeks.
So if you’ve been dealing with more than your fair share of stress, pop into any alternative health food store and pick up a quality vitamin B complex supplement.Wishing you the best of health,
