STRESS AND STRESS FACTS:

We all know what it feels like to be stressed. But what is stress really? Stress is a word commonly used in our fast paced society. No one can live without experiencing some degree of stress. Short-term stress is not necessarily bad for you, as it is a vital part of life. However, often daily demands placed upon us accumulate to a point where it is almost impossible to cope. Job pressures, deadlines, family arguments, relationships and financial pressure are common examples of stressors, but stress can stem from anything which creates a disturbance within the body, including toxins.

We are geared to adapt to these stressors every day, but with prolonged or extreme stress these adaptation measures may become harmful. Prolonged chemical, emotional and physical stress places an increased demand on many organs and weakens the heart, blood vessels, adrenal glands and immune system. Long-term stress also causes depletion of micronutrients and protective glucocorticoid hormones secreted by the adrenal glands. These hormones are essential to regulate your blood sugar levels. Together these harmful processes increase your risk to developing diseases of lifestyle such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, obesity and chronic fatigue.

It is important to have the right nutrients that repair and regenerate the adrenal glands, as many disorders related to stress are not a direct result of stress itself, but as a result of nutrient deficiencies caused by long periods of stress. People experiencing and reacting to stress need to maintain a nutritious, well balanced diet with special emphasis on replacing nutrients through supplementation to counteract the likelihood of deficiencies. Stress symptoms can vary from irritation, anxiety to fatigue and insomnia. Adrenal exhaustion is the progressive decreased function of adrenal glands and these glands need support to reduce stress symptoms.

How an individual copes with stress plays a major role in determining their level of health. A comprehensive approach to stress management is important in order to maintain or attain Optimal Health in today's demanding world.

It helps to neutralize nitrosamines, carcinogenic substances that are formed when smoked meats such as ham and bacon are cured with nitrites.
