Stress and anxiety can run your life if you let it. Anxiety can often times have a snowball effect, and once you get the slightest sense of anxiety it can build on itself until it becomes unmanageable. There are numerous prescription drugs on the market that can treat anxiety, but these can often times make you feel fatigued and may be habit forming. StoneAge Wellness has put together a blend of some of the best natural remedies for stress and anxiety. Our natural stress and anxiety reliever, Relax Already®, is made with ValfloraTM, a proprietary blend that combines valerian root, lemon balm, chamomile, cramp bark and passion flower. These ingredients are safe to take, and they can help to reduce stress and anxiety.
Relax Already starts by supplying the body with magnesium. One common cause of anxiety is a magnesium deficiency. Magnesium helps to naturally calm the muscles, and more importantly the mind. Maintaining healthy magnesium levels is the first step in reducing anxiety.
Valerian root is an incredible plant that works within the brain to relieve stress and anxiety. Valerian root is commonly referred to as "nature's valium." Valerian root affects GABA in the brain. GABA is gamma-aminobutryic, and it is an amino acid that acts as a neurotransmitter. GABA helps to reduce nerve transmissions in the brain. Sometimes individuals suffer from "Busy Brain"; GABA can help to reduce the frequency of nerve transmissions to help reduce busy brain which can help to calm nervous activity and the mind. Without GABA the brain would be bombarded by stimulation, and it would become overly active. Valerian root works with GABA to soothe the mind and bring relief to stress and anxiety.
Relax Already is also made with passion flower. Passion flower works similarly to valerian root by interacting with the brain's GABA. Recent studies have shown that passion flower can help to significantly reduce anxiety, and it can even be just as effective as some prescription drugs.
Many people use chamomile to soothe their stomach and to relieve pain. Chamomile, however, can also be a great way to fight stress. When the body is stressed it releases cortisol. Cortisol increases the body's blood pressure and blood glucose levels. Cortisol is partly responsible for that unbearable feeling that accompanies stress and anxiety. Chamomile contains apigenin, which helps to fight stress. Apigenin is a flavonoid that works to fight the brain's release of cortisol, and this can help to greatly relieve stress.
Lemon balm can be an effective remedy to reduce pain, but it can also help to treat stress and anxiety. The University of Maryland Medical Center conducted a number of studies on lemon balm. They found that lemon balm can to successfully treat stress and anxiety. Lemon balm is different from other anxiety treatments though, because it doesn't cause fatigue or drowsiness. In fact, the University found that lemon balm helped to increase the mental clarity and alertness of their subjects. Lemon balm can be a great herb for the day time, because it won't make the consumer sleepy.
StoneAge Wellness Relax Already also contains cramp bark. Cramp bark is a key ingredient in Relax Already's ability to reduce muscle pains and spasms, but has a limited affect on anxiety and stress.
Stress and anxiety can easily become overwhelming when they aren't managed properly. Prescription drugs can help, but they often alter the mind and can cause additions. Natural remedies are one of the best ways to treat stress and anxiety. StoneAge Wellness Relax Already has combined some of nature's best stress and anxiety remedies into one easy-to-take capsule that can help to relieve stress and anxiety.
