Mega-Stress Complex is a product developed by the company Nature’s Plus. They have over 35 years of experience in natural supplements and have earned quite some recognition as one of the best manufacturers of natural health products. They are based in the US and provide extensive information on their company and products on their website.

Nature’s Plus is also the same company behind the anti-aging supplement Source Of Life Liquid Red.
The supplement, as the name suggests, is meant to alleviate stress for people suffering from it. Whether it’s from a busy work schedule, emotional events taking place, or due to illness, stress affects almost everyone at some point throughout an individual’s life, and not dealing with it can lead to severe consequences.

They might even have repercussions on one’s health. Through the combination of ingredients that it provides, Mega-Stress Complex claims to rid people of their stress issues, helping them lead happier, more enjoyable lives.


1) Quick Overview

Mega-Stress Complex is a formulation made of a mix of amino acids, vitamins, herbal extracts, and minerals, which are supposed to work together to alleviate stress.

Some of the ingredients contained by this product have been medically proven to help alleviate stress, such as GABA, an amino acid that regulates neurotransmission, Valerian which has a mild sedative and anxiolytic effect and Vitamin C, known to boost the body’s immune system and aid it in dealing with stressful conditions.

Unfortunately, other ingredients listed as Mega-Stress Complex components have no attested value as supplements, only being useful in the cases where the body is already suffering from a deficiency of the specific nutrient.

Among them are Vitamin B12, Pantothenic Acid, and Riboflavin, which can harm the body if excessive amounts are ingested.

Caution is advised when taking supplements rich in various vitamins, as excessive consumption can lead to hypervitaminosis. In these potentially lethal conditions, some organs might fail to perform properly due to an incapacity of breaking down all the nutrients found in the blood.


2) What Are Mega-Stress Complex Ingredients?

Mega-Stress Complex contains: GABA and PABA, Vitamin C, Valerian, Inositol, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Zinc, Niacin, Magnesium, Vitamin B6, Calcium Folate, Vitamin B12, Pantothenic Acid, Calcium, Stearic acid, microcrystalline cellulose, rose hips (Rosa canina fruit), isolated soy protein, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, silica, magnesium stearate, rice bran, pharmaceutical glaze.

3) Is Mega-Stress Complex Right for You?

Mega-Stress Complex is marketed as a product that can boost your immune system and reduce stress considerably. It supposedly does this by replacing the various water-soluble vitamins that can be taken out of the body when a person suffers from anxiety.

The vitamin C found in it has been proven to help boost the immune system.

There is no other information provided though about how this combination of ingredients can combat stress successfully. If that information is out there in independent studies or clinical trials, then we urge the company t to provide us with the details of those findings.

This product shouldn’t be used by anyone using various prescription medications. The website states that the PABA in it can interfere with sulfa drugs.

Some individuals also have an allergic reaction to the Niacin, so they should pay attention to any side effects, including redness, rash, or difficulty breathing.

Bottom Line

8) Our Bottom Line

Dealing with stress is something everyone has to do at one point or another.

For those feeling overwhelmed by the amounts of stress they have to deal with, Mega-Stress Complex tries to come to the rescue and provide them with a much-needed boost. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee whether the product works or not, given the small amount of information regarding clinical trials.

Some people have used the product and reported feeling lower stress levels, suggesting that the product claims might be valid.

If you’re considering this product, we advise you to conduct your research regarding testimonials, shipping possibilities, and refund options if the supplement doesn’t perform as advertised for you.
