1. Holy Basil
I was very impressed with a lot of aspects of this product, the number one being its efficacy. I also noted the lovely dark glass bottle it came in (this will help preserve potency and give the product a longer shelf life) as well as the great taste of the softgels and how easy they were to swallow. A definite number one on my shelf.
The Hormone Diet.
Bach Flower Rescue Remedy. Both are to be taken in acute situations of stress only and are not the best option to deal with long term stress.
4. Rhodiola rosea
A fantastic herbal supplement that is readily available in capsules or tablets. It not only helps you deal with stress, but it also helps deal with the lack of energy a stressful period can cause you. A typical dose is 2 tablets a day, one taken in the morning and the other in the early afternoon. This is because most people experience a surge of energy and this can affect sleep if taken too close to bedtime.
5. B- Complex Vitamin
A B-complex vitamin contains most (if not all) of the B vitamins, of which there are 11 in total. B vitamins are incredibly helpful in regulating the stress response in the body and are also water-soluble, so there is little worry of taking too much as the excess is often expelled from the body in the urine. That said, do not be alarmed if your urine is neon yellow. This is the colour of the Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) in the formula.
Have a calm and stress-free day!
