Relieve stress and tension naturally
by Michael Ventresca, co-owner
Stress is a two headed monster. Most of us are very familiar with the external signs: fatigue, irritability, inability to concentrate and anxious feelings. Lesser known is the host of internal physiological effects that are due to an increase in production of a variety of molecules, including free radicals that wreak havoc on the body.
First, our cardiovascular system is impacted. Our heart rate and blood pressure increase. Studies also find an increase in inflammation (CRP) and LDL (bad) cholesterol.
An over worked endocrine system can produce excess cortisol and other stress hormones leading to fatigue, blood sugar imbalances and, for many women, symptoms of PMS and menopause worsen. Last, but certainly not least, the immune system takes a beating. In fact, numerous studies show people who report high levels of stress are ill more often and take longer to recover.
With this in mind, to combat stress naturally we need to look for something that tackle the external symptoms so we feel better, while also addressing the underlying physiological effects that can lead to serious health concerns.
For me, that product is Tension Release by MegaFood. Tension Release acts as an adaptogen, supporting the body while reducing feelings of stress and tension in as little as 20-30 minutes. It includes a patented extract of Ashwaghanda that has been shown clinically to enhance energy, concentration and feelings of well-being, while decreasing reports of insomnia, stress and anxious feelings. Physiologically, this extract has demonstrated the ability to reduce cortisol, fasting blood sugar and LDL cholesterol while increasing HDL cholesterol and DHEA. Tension Release also provides Purple Reishi Antler, a mushroom complex known to reduce inflammation, combat free radicals and boost immune function. Tension Release can be taken as needed or daily for enhanced support.
