1) What is Anti-Stress Formula?

Anti-Stress Formula is a blend of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and herbal extracts designed to assist with stress management. L-tyrosine functions as a precursor for important brain neurotransmitters such as Dopamine, Norepinephrine and Adrenaline. By regulating these neurotransmitters, L-Tyrosine may be beneficial in a number of conditions related to their synthesis. Dopamine for instance has been demonstrated to be a factor in major depression and other mood conditions such as Bipolar Disorder. Also, it appears that low levels of dopamine may be a cause of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. L-Tyrosine is considered generally safe. However some people may experience side effects such as nausea, headache, fatigue, heartburn and joint pain.

The Ginkgo Biloba extract contains more than 40 chemicals, from which two are known to be responsible for the herbs medicinal benefits: the Flavoneglycosides and the Terpene lactones. These two chemicals seem to have blood enhancing properties and antioxidant properties, making Ginkgo Biloba one of the most popular herbal supplements today. Most commonly, Ginkgo is used as a standardized leaf extract which contains Flavoneglycosides and Terpene Lactones.

Frequent medicinal uses include prevention of age-related memory loss and promoting a healthy brain function, particularly memory. Ginkgo is investigated as a potential Alzheimer’s treatment.

3) Is Anti-Stress Formula Right for You?

Anti-Stress Formula combines various vitamins, minerals, herbal extracts, bioflavonoids, and amino acids with the purpose of relieving stress.

This seems like a promising formula when one considers the herbal extracts it includes. One of these herbal extracts, ginseng, is particularly useful at increasing energy levels and reducing stress levels. It is used traditionally for numerous medical conditions, mainly digestive and sexual problems. American ginseng contains ginsenosides, which stimulate the immune system. It is used by athletes to fight fatigue and stress and also to improve the use of oxygen when muscles are exercised. However, there are many forms of ginseng, some far more useful than others. This is the reason why scientists cannot agree upon its use in dietary supplements. Eleutherococcus senticosus is native to Northeastern Asia. It is also used by alternative medicine practitioners to alleviate symptoms such as stress, fatigue, neurasthenia, and sore muscles associated with the hyperfunctioning of the endocrine system.

Antioxidants have also been linked to stress management. This formula includes potent antioxidants such as Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and the B-complex vitamins. Bioflavonoids are another important nutrient class that has established antioxidant activity, sometimes thought of like a vitamin. They also appear to play key roles in the normal regulation of cell cycling and cell signaling pathways.
