Stress Away is a herbal formulation designed to calm the mind and body, manage stress-related symptoms, and, as a consequence, reduce the risk of physical and mental conditions.

The manufacturer of Stress Away is a world-renowned traditional Chinese medicine manufacturer of herbal supplements, pharmaceuticals, food, beverages, and other consumer products. HerbRight, also known as Sun Ten, was founded in 1946 to integrate Eastern and Western Medicine.

According to the manufacturer, the entire family is safe to use Stress Away (including children over 12 years old).

The manufacturer also quotes some self-conducted clinical research, which proved the efficiency of “Bupleurum and Mu Li combination” (main ingredients) in relieving stress-related symptoms (headaches, fatigue, shoulder stiffness).

However, these studies were conducted on a small scale (a small number of people). No further details on the methodology of the research are provided.


1) Stress Away at a Glance

Stress Away reduces unhealthy stress levels and associated manifestations (agitation, irritability, headache, etc.). The product is 100% herbal formulation.

The action mechanism is based on Chinese medicine principles, such as Qi (life energy which circulates all organs of the human body).

Bupleurum root, one of the core ingredients, is commonly used to help relax by soothing liver Qi, releasing Qi constraint, and cooling body heat.

According to the manufacturer, the Chinese skullcap root has been proven to produce a sedative effect on rabbits, mice, and dogs. Cassia Twig was demonstrated to reduce spontaneous mental and physical activity in mice and may help reduce anxiety.

The daily recommended dosage is three tablets taken after meals. Side effects mentioned include diarrhea, loose stools, or abdominal discomfort, as rhubarb root may aggravate these conditions.


2) Stress Away Ingredients

Stress Away includes the following ingredients: Proprietary Aqueous Extract of Bupleurum Root, Chinese Skullcap Root, Cassia Twig, Chinese Rhubarb Root and Rhizome, Oyster Shell, Poria Sclerotium, Asian Ginseng Root, Pinellia Rhizome, Ginger Rhizome, and Jujube Fruit.

3) Does Stress Away Work and it is Safe?

Stress Away Futurebiotics is an herbal blend of various natural ingredients that have been heavily circulated in association with stress relief products. Asian Ginseng Root is often portrayed as an ingredient that will help to calm the mind.

Chinese Scullcap Root is also promoted as an ingredient that can make it easier for tension to slip away. These are just a few of the ingredients found in this product that the manufacturer claims can take high-stress levels.

There aren’t any sources of caffeine or artificial stimulants found in Stress Away Futurebiotics. There can be some side effects associated with the use of this product, according to the manufacturer.

Any such symptoms, including diarrhea or abdominal pain, should be taken as a sign to cut back on the dose or to stop using this supplement.

These side effects are believed to be the result of the ingredient Rhubarb Root. It isn’t recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing to use this product.

While there are many claims on the website about this product and its effectiveness, the manufacturer doesn’t tell how they have come to such conclusions.

There is no reference to any clinical studies or lab results. Still, quite a few positive things are being said about Stress Away Futurebiotics online, including the following:

  • Affordable
  • Easy to use
  • Sleeping better
  • Less stress
  • Less irritability
Health Benefits

4) Stress Away Health Benefits

  • The expertise of the manufacturer (over 50 years of business experience);
  • Research studies that prove the product’s effectiveness are mentioned.

5) Precautions of Stress Away Use

  • The ingredients are extensively explained;
  • The small scale of the research conducted may interfere with its relevance;
  • Lack of consumer reviews.

6) Stress Away Cost

Each bottle of Stress Away Futurebiotics contains 90 capsules. This is enough for 15 days if the consumer is taking the maximum daily dose of 6 capsules. Therefore, it would take two bottles of this product to last a month.

The cost per bottle is $19.08. The cost of shipping is $5.99 per order in the USA. There are additional fees for 2 or 3-day rush delivery.

The cost of International shipping varies based on location.

There is a place to copy and paste a coupon code before the final checkout. It can be worth it to open a second browser and to look for a code that can be placed in there.

There is no free trial offer for this supplement. There is a 30-day refund policy, but customers must call the toll free number to obtain an RMA before sending the product back.

All products must be factory sealed and unopened for a return to be available. There will be a 10% restocking fee for all returns. It may take up to 30 days for the refund to be processed.


7) Stress Away Directions

The manufacturer extensively explains each of the ingredients’ properties and potential effects on reducing stress. Also, some research studies are mentioned that back up the benefit claims.

Bottom Line

8) Our Bottom Line

People today are more open-minded to try cures and remedies offered by alternative medicinal systems.

The number of such products has consequently increased over the past decade and the popularity of these remedies. Stress Away is one of these solutions, a formula based on traditional Chinese medicine principles that promote a stress-free life.

The manufacturer is a reputable company with over 50 years of business experience. Research on the product was actually conducted by the manufacturer.

However, clinical trials mentioned were conducted on a small scale (a small number of patients). Also, details on the research methodology are not provided; therefore, its relevance must be treated with caution.

Some mild side effects are associated with the product. Precautions include pregnant and nursing women and people who already take medication. However, we recommend that all people considering taking a dietary supplement should consult a health care professional.

Am in a very stressful time and saw the product and bought it to try it out as an alternative to the more common choices. This product does everything it says it does and will be my first choice from now on. The great thing is that it gives back a great clarity of thought and removes the fog usually caused by a stressed mind. Great product.


Very happy to have found it, however i have psoriasis and it had flares up since taking stress away, i think it it due to the Oyster shell. is there any other recommended product similar to Stress away which is better for people with psoriasis to use?

Thanks again to stress away which was recommended to me by my aunty.


Stress away is the best product I’ve ever used. I’ve been suffering from panic attacks due to depression Bt after using stress away life seems to be the best thing. Now I can study without getting tired, sleep at night and all in all I feel completely relaxed.
