Nutrients for Managing Stress
In order to manage stress at the biochemical level or the root cause, we need to make sure we're getting the proper nutrients. When we are under stress - whether good or bad - our bodies can't tell the difference and use up a ton of Vitamin C and the B vitamins from our food or body stores. Therefore, we need to make sure we are eating a clean and nutrient-dense diet to ensure we are getting adequate levels of these micronutrients - the vitamins mentioned above. When we are dealing with a lot of stress due to illness, a new job, a loss, or planning a wedding, it can also be beneficial to utilize supplemental nutrition in order to protect our bodies from stress. However, not all supplements are created equal. It is important to make sure you're getting good-quality, synergistically formulated, and efficacious supplements from someone qualified to order and recommend them.
