Basics for Beating Stress

First of all, it’s also important maintain a healthy diet. You can handle stress better when your body has the nutrients it needs. Try not to skip meals, eat on the run, or eat too fast. Make mealtime a calming social event.

In addition, you must avoid sugar and fat. Studies find that even though foods high in sugar and fat don’t necessarily cause anxiety, they can worsen the condition and impair the body’s ability to deal with stress.

Many people who feel stressed have a tendency to reach for an alcoholic beverage because they think it will ease their anxiety. What they don’t realize is that they are making the situation worse.

Alcohol is itself a depressant. And stress can change the way alcohol makes a person feel; it can reduce the pleasure or set off an intense craving for more, according to researchers.

In addition to eating a healthy diet, supplements can help reduce stress. Sensoril, a standardized extract of the Indian plant called ashwaganda (Withania somnifera), is valued for its ability to balance, energize, rejuvenate, and revitalize.

I’ve found this plant extract useful for helping my own patients deal with stress.

In one double-blind study, an ashwaganda extract was found to lessen anxiety, irritability, inability to concentrate, forgetfulness, sleeplessness, fatigue, and other indicators of chronic stress.

More recently, a study looked at 20 participants who were put under mental stress. Researchers found that the extract relieved their clinical symptoms.

In addition to helping ameliorate stress, the ingredients in Sensoril have been found to reduce stress-induced weight gain, enhance energy levels, and inhibit the effect of cardiac damage from oxidation.
