How can multivitamins and herbal supplements help with stress?
Understanding Occasional Stress
Did you know the body’s natural stress response is an ancient survival mechanism? Stress gives us a burst of energy to deal with “fight or flight” situations. This stress reaction can still be useful today. But in our busy world full of minor hassles and tensions, the body’s hard-wired stress response can recur often. And while occasional stresses may not seem like cause for alarm, the body and mind may still react as if under actual threat. This can impact the systems of the body as well as affecting emotional health and mood.
Mastering Stress with Multivitamins
Fortunately, Perfect Calm™ multivitamin delivers nutrients for soothing stress support.* Emerging studies suggest that taking a daily multivitamin, such as Perfect Calm, can support a healthy mood and help with occasional stress and fatigue.* Cultured Vitamin C helps support adrenal function, a gland that helps with healthy stress response.* Since daily stress can affect immune and digestive function as well, this multivitamin delivers Zinc† and Vitamins A and C to support immune health, and Vitamins C and D3 to aid in the absorption of key nutrients.*
