Stress is how your body responds to changes. Stress in and of itself is not bad. All sorts of situations, both positive and negative, can cause stress. Stress can have physical, emotional, or mental consequences.
Workplace stress is a leading cause of stress in the United States, leading to negative consequences such as missed work. The American Institute of Stress estimates 83 percent of workers experience work-related stress. Over one million people miss work every year as a result. Mental health days are or absences due to stress when employees call in sick because they need a mental break. They cost employers $300 billion each year. Depending on how your body handles stress, it can lead to or exacerbate symptoms of both depression and anxiety. Chronic stress is a contributing factor in many diseases. Arteriosclerosis, diabetes, high blood pressure, premature aging, and cancer all have stress components!
In general, the American population lives in a state of stress. Adults between the ages of 30 to 49 are the most stressed group, likely from the pressures of raising families and earning a living at the same time. Constant stress happens when cortisol and adrenaline levels are consistently high. It can lead to adverse health problems, cause irritability, affect sleep, and lower immunity. Physical symptoms like tiredness or fatigue, headaches, and gastric disturbances can also occur. That is why our stress and anxiety support supplements aim to improve your sleep, cortisol levels, mental energy, neurotransmission, and nutrition.
