Staying Strong Through The Storm

March 25, 2020

With fear and anxiety heightened due to current world events, many people are spending each day worrying about many different things, often things that are out of their control. This worry and stress takes a toll on both mental and physical health, and doesn’t do any good. In this week’s episode we’ll talk about staying strong through the storm by keeping your mind focused on the positive, and staying busy while you’re at home. Spending this extended time at home to complete chores you’ve been putting off or start a workout program you’ve been wanting to try are just a couple of the many ways you can stay busy and productive during this time. We have also received many more questions about what can be done to help support immune health, so we’ll answer some more of those questions in this episode.

Stress Response – A comprehensive formula of nutrients and botanicals with demonstrated and unique neurosupportive effects creates a robust and multifactorial approach to support daily brain health and function.† The brain’s complex metabolism requires many different nutrients for optimum cellular communication and a balanced response to stress. Excessive or chronic release of adrenaline and cortisol, accumulated effects of environmental exposures, and oxygenation can affect the brain with an impact on mental alertness, memory, and other functions.
