StressCare Gives Energetic Hope to a Hectic World

So, you’ve tried stress formulas before, and they all turned out to be drowsy disasters or stimulant nightmares?

Let’s see. There were those long-gone early days when people rushed to their local health food stores for products containing L-Tryptophan, the famous “turkey dinner” amino acid which made you sleepier than a post-Thanksgiving nap on the couch.

Then there were products with smelly old Valerian, which knocked you out and stunk up your medicine cabinet at the same time. And of course, we can’t forget all those one hit wonder formulas that promised the moon, but came up short, taking the edge off anxiety but reacting with antidepressants and upping the unpleasantness of headache and fatigue.

Unlike many formulas that depend on heavy amounts of amino acids or herbs that wrestle our central nervous system into either sedation or stimulation, StressCare was formulated for safe, long-term use to enhance and support the stress response system, lift and refresh you in an energizing way, and provide whole plant foods that support both mental flexibility and physical recovery in an unpredictable and demanding modern world.

In an era when 69% of all US citizens describe their work place as a major source of stress1 – StressCare goes right to work to increase resistance to stress, fatigue, tension and irritability.

Full of India’s famous adaptogens – things like Ashwagandha, Holy Basil and Turmeric – StressCare is formulated with herbs traditional Ayurveda would call “Rasayanas,” or “rejuvenators” which they described as “life extenders.” Today, we’d call them “tonics” or “body balancers.” And StressCare does exactly that.

This unique proprietary combination is designed to promote allostasis over homeostasis. Homeostasis is your body standing still…not good if you’re reacting to the new, stressful situations life throws your way. Allostasis, on the other hand, is your body and mind being flexible enough to respond to life’s stressors, promoting neural processes that produce the hormones needed to give us our necessary moments of clarity and recovery and a restoration of our most welcomed vitality.

Go down the alphabet, and stress affects everything. “A” for your adrenals, “B” for your brain, “C” for your capillaries and cardiovascular system, “D” for your digestion. If you’re under stress, you’re out of control. And while we can’t take away a difficult job or a hectic home life, we can offer a complete herbal formula that will quickly become one of your most impressive tools for achieving that kind of restorative, allostasis-based response you need when faced with stress. In other words, same situation, different you.

StressCare is clinically studied in people, not mice, making it one of the rare stress formulas in health food stores to stand up to the scrutiny of double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical trials on the finished formula. And what did we find when we gave people StressCare for four weeks?

  • 92% of those on StressCare said they had less fatigue (from 13 respondents down to 1) vs. 25% (from 12 down to 9 respondents) in the placebo.*
  • 93% of those on StressCare said they had more dependable sleep (from 14 respondents down to 1) vs. 27% (from 12 down to 9 respondents) in the placebo.*

Part of StressCare’s energizing, not snoozerizing wonder, comes from the addition of Chyavanprash to the proprietary formula. Known as history’s “elixir of life” and the original super food, this time-honored recipe Chyavanprash has been promoting health, digestion and energy in India, continually, for over 2,000 years.

Not only is StressCare clinically studied to promote normal levels of the stress hormone cortisol within four weeks*, it also supports the endocrine system, particularly proper thyroid function which provides normal energy.

T4 is the biologically inactive form of thyroid hormone your body stores in case you need it. It’s the fresh set of batteries you keep in the drawer in case a storm rolls in and you need your flashlight. T4 has several days of shelf life, but once you turn it on and turn it into T3, it’s only seconds of shelf life, but it provides you with that bright, metabolic push that gives you energy and helps you address life’s stressors. StressCare is the hormonal up-regulator that takes the batteries out of your drawer and puts them in your flashlight.

In a stress-crazed, oversaturated marketplace where almost everything else addresses stress by either solely creating a relaxing mental environment or attempting to “unplug” our neuromuscular system (think “naps on the couch after your big turkey dinner”), it’s nice to know something like Stress- Care is out there, keeping us alert and awake with no stimulants at all, relaxing the muscles and calming the mind. There are short-term answers and drowsy disappointments.

Then there are longterm solutions that don’t leave you disoriented or disengaged.

StressCare is just such a solution. It’s cardioprotective, immunosupportive, and endocrine promoting. And, oh yeah…it works, too. Prompt relaxation. Sharpened mental focus. Sustainable energy levels. Say goodbye to the trends, the untested’s and the tired, old flash-in-the-pans. A new generation of stress support has arrived.
