1) Stress-X at a Glance

Stress-X is a multi-ingredient mixture designed to help manage stress, reduce associated symptoms and recover after stressful periods. Herbal ingredients contained are commonly used for their calming, relaxing effects, often as remedies against stress, anxiety and sleep disorders.

Valerian Root is used as a muscle relaxant, sleeping disorders, against restlessness and anxiety and sometimes as a sedative. However, long term effects have not been systematically studied.

Chamomile is another herbal ingredient commonly present in anxiety therapies, stomach troubles, colds, insomnia and muscle aches. Eleuthero (or Siberian Ginseng) is an adaptogenic, specifically it helps the body adapt to external factors (such as those causing stress).

The blend of vitamins (including an extensive B-vitamin complex), minerals are designed to supercharge the formula for increased absorption and assimilation.

Stress-X includes the following ingredients: Siberian Ginseng, Valerian Root, Skullcap, Capsicum, Chamomile, Borage, Hops, Wood Betony Borage, Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, Vitamin E, Folic Acid, Niacin, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, PABA, Zinc, Selenium, Chromium, Chloride, Sodium, Potassium, and Inositol.

3) What Does Stress-X Do?

Stress-X is a blend of herbs, vitamins, and minerals that are stated to help with reducing mental fatigue and irritability.

It is important to point out that this formula was not created to replace a healthy diet. Whole foods are the best source of nutrients, minerals, and vitamins.

Stress-X contains Valerian Root. This plant has been used as a pain reliever, anticonvulsant, sedative and migraine treatment in the ancient Rome and Greece. Evidence shows that Valerian has high tranquilizing properties, which makes it an excellent solution in supplements aimed to reduce stress. Many scientists believe there is a connection between this herb and the GABA neurotransmitter receptor system.

While numerous researches have been conducted to prove Valerian’s Effectiveness, the results are still far from conclusive. Independent studies are still required to fully understand how this plant interacts with the elements available in the human body.

Valerian Root has become an essential ingredient in insomnia and other sleep related disorders treatments. Due to its calming effects, Valerian can successfully replace prescription sleeping pills, without causing sleepiness or drowsiness the following day.

Valerian is usually well tolerated with mild side effects rarely occurring. The most common side effects include stomach ache, apathy, feeling of mental dullness and mild depression.

There are testimonials about Stress-X posted online. What is being reported includes:

I can sleep better now
Better than most
Easy to swallow
No side effects

8) Our Verdict on Stress-X

Stress-X is promoted as a natural remedy against stress and a nourishing stress recovery system.
The numer of similar products is consistently rising, due to the increase in stress and anxiety rates in the modern society. The manufacturer does not offer clinical tests results to support the benefit claims. However, the herbal ingredients have been (the great majority) used for their sedative, calming and sometimes anti-stress effects.

The minerals and vitamins are designed to nourish the body, to ensure its well-functioning when under pressure of stress and other external factors. The product, like all products manufactured by the company, is subject to a 60-day money-back guarantee. For precautionary reasons, we recommend medical advice is sought before starting treatment.
