Brian Strickland  00:00

Stress, we all experience it, we all complain about it. And yet somehow it persists to be an everyday part of our lives. Work, friends, kids, phones, email, social media, news, tv, finances, traffic, relationships, busyness, illness, anxiety, work life balance, car repairs. We have an insanely complicated life with a constant stream of things to worry about. And while the effects of stress can range from subtle to severe, the one thing that can't be argued is that it's extremely damaging to our well being.

Proper diet, plenty of quality, sleep and exercise play a crucial role and keeping the worry away. But we understand that life gets crazy and supplementation can give your body the nutrients it needs to help with the stress of everyday life. Case in point mount Angel's Adrenal Support.

But before we talk about supplements, the adrenal glands have to be mentioned when we talk about stress. As part of your endocrine system, adrenals are small glands that sit atop your kidneys. They produce a variety of hormones, but most notably in the context of stress. They're responsible for their production of cortisol, often referred to it as the stress hormone, the brain triggers the release of cortisol in stress to help metabolize energy sources as part of your fight or flight response. We've all felt it, your muscles tighten, heart rate increases, you begin to breathe more rapidly, your body is signaling that it is ready for anything and everything. Just think about this happening day in and day out, hour by hour, minute by minute, it's easy to see how constant stress can quickly cause serious problems.

To combat adrenal overload and increase in cortisol levels, we often need a little help. And that's where supplements really come in handy. There's a class of herbs and plants called adaptogens that help the body resist stressors of all kinds. And the two most common well known are ashwagandha and rhodiola, both of which just happened to be included in Mount Angel's Adrenal Support.

This formula can make a huge difference in dealing with the everyday stress associated with modern life. It combines adaptogens with other nutrients like vitamin C, and pantothenic acid to help protect you at a cellular level. We understand that it's insanely difficult to do everything required to keep calm in every situation and live a perfectly stress free life. So why not give yourself a break and give your body the nutrients that can give it the best shot to cope with stress in a healthy way.
