How Stress Impacts Health
Stress. This is a word that everyone is familiar with, and it is an aspect of life that you can’t avoid. The effects of stress are so strong that it can have a detrimental impact on not only your physical health, but also your mental health. This includes influencing how you behave, your cognitive function, and even your thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Work, family life, the environment, inadequate sleep, poor nutrition, and lack of exercise all contribute to increased stress.
When stress isn’t dealt with or handled properly, it can lead to serious health complications. As a result, managing stress is one of the most important things you can do to increase your metabolism, feel more energized, and sleep better!
What Happens to Your Body Under Stress
So what exactly happens in your body when it experiences stress? The central nervous system (CNS) fires up as a response to stress, and your body starts to release hormones when your brain sends a message to the adrenal glands. The hormones released are two you are probably familiar with: cortisol and adrenaline. As a result, blood pressure goes up, your heart rate increases, and your blood sugar levels increase.
Blood is sent to the heart, muscles, and other areas it is needed during the stressful moment. When the stress is gone, the CNS returns to normal. But if you are always stressed, these actions result in chronic stress and start to negatively impact the body.
Here is a short list of what stress can cause:
- Muscle tension
- Emotional outbursts
- Feeling overwhelmed
- Brain fog
- Low libido
- Compromised immune system
How to Minimize Stress
There are many ways to reduce stress, including:
- Sleeping more
- Spending time with pets
- Talking to someone about it
- Setting boundaries at work and at home
- Practicing hobbies
- Spending time outdoors
Reducing stress may look different for everyone. The important thing is to take time out of your stressful day to do an activity that you love and that brings you joy.
How Ashwagandha Supports Stress Response
Ashwagandha is considered an “adaptogen,” meaning it assists the body in how it reacts to stress.* To be considered an adaptogen, an herb must have three specific qualities:
- It is not harmful to the body
- It helps reduce and manage stress
- It benefits overall well-being
Ashwagandha’s adaptogenic properties naturally support relaxation by calming the mind and body, helping you adapt to stress more effectively.*
When you are stressed, pure and organic ashwagandha as part of a healthy routine helps you receive nutrients that support relaxation and a healthy stress response.* Plus, it is made with black pepper to increase absorption. Black pepper contains an active alkaloid compound called piperine, which gives black pepper its pungent taste. You can reap the benefits in our convenient capsules.
