While it is said that stress is a silent killer, people who suffer from chronic stress exhibit some symptoms that point to the fact that this insidious monster is wreaking havoc in their bodies. Nowhere else are the signs of stress more evident than on your skin. Stress can trigger many skin conditions like acne & pigmentation and flare-up existing skin conditions, such as eczema, more frequently than it normally does. Your skin could look drier, or you may take longer to heal if you ever injure your skin. The Regul8 RELAX Herbs are specially blended to help your mind and body cope with stress at different levels and this blog post highlights some of the major ingredients of this product that works to keep stress minimal or reverse its effects on your skin and body.
Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis)
Lemon balm has for long been used in herbal medicine as a remedy for people who suffer from insomnia to sleep better. It can calm the nerves and provide relief from gastrointestinal complaints.
Lemon balm can also improve concentration, lower anxiety and ease urinary as well as menstrual cramps. Research suggests that lemon balm may be producing all these effects by inhibiting the activity of an enzyme called GABA transaminase.
How is all this related to stress management? This herb calms down your nerves and allows you to sleep. While you sleep, the body “reboots” its biochemical system so that you can wake up free from all the stress that you were under before you went to bed. Even if the stress is still present, the rest you had enables your body to be better able to deal with the stress that you are experiencing.
Passionflower (Passiflora incarnate)
Traditionally, passionflower has been used in Western medicine as a sleeping aid, combating restlessness, nervous irritability and helping people to be more alert. Because passionflower helps your mind to mellow up, you are likely to see an improvement in symptoms like depression, high blood pressure, anxiety and the withdrawal symptoms experienced by recovering addicts.
Stress is known to accelerate the process through which cancer cells form and grow in the body (through a process called aromatisation). Some research shows that the regular consumption of passionflower helps the body to inhibit this damaging process. In this way, the body is helped to defend itself against the damage that results from aromatisation.
The inclusion of passionflower in the Regul8 RELAX herbs makes it possible for your body to not only cope with the stress you are experiencing but also prevent the potentially serious damage that results when you are chronically stressed.
Arctic Rose (Rhodiola Rosea)
Arctic Rose is very popular as a traditional medicine in Asia and Eastern Europe. It stimulates the nervous system, combats depression, eliminates fatigue, stress and also improves physical performance.
Regarding stress management, Artic Rose lowers the level of the stress hormone cortisol. This hormone is responsible for weakening one’s immunity, causing abdominal weight gain, causing poor memory and hormonal imbalance, triggering thyroid problems and so many other adverse effects.
When this hormone is regulated by taking Arctic Rose, the skin issues that you experience when you are stressed will be less likely to develop since the biomarkers of stress will be modulated. It is no wonder that Regul8 RELAX contains this remarkable plant in its formulation.
Black Pepper (Piper Nigrum)
Stress suppresses various body systems, including the digestive system. Consequently, people who are constantly stressed don’t obtain the nutrients that they need from the food they consume because the digestive system has more or less shut down.
This lack of nutrients in the body sets off a domino effect in various body systems, such as the circulatory system, and other health problems (hypertension, for example) result.
Regul8 RELAX contains black pepper in a proprietary formulation we call BioPerine. This ingredient is aromatic and stimulates the digestive system to start working normally despite the stress that one may be undergoing.
The piperine helps your body to absorb more of the ingredients in the Regul8 RELAX herbs, and you will notice a positive impact in your general wellbeing.
There are many more ingredients, such as Rehmannia and Mekabu (among others), contained in Regul8 RELAX. Those highlighted in this blog post are just intended to show you how much care was taken to pick only those herbs that on their own, play an important role in helping your body to deal with stress, and in combination, these positive effects multiply several-fold. All that you need to do to enjoy all these benefits is to pop one capsule two times each day. However, this dosage can be tweaked based on the advice of a professional. That said, the herbs aren’t recommended for people who are pregnant or breastfeeding, and those on high blood pressure medication. Kick stress to the kerb with Regul8!
