Blackmores Executive B Stress Formula contains vitamins, minerals and herbs to support the nervous system during times of ongoing stress, pressure and tension.
Features & Benefits:
Supports the body’s stress-coping mechanisms
Combines nutrients that support and maintain the functioning of the nervous system and adrenal glands with herbs that have traditionally been taken in times of stress and tension
Supports the conversion of food into energy
Stress places a heavy load on the nervous system and adrenal glands, especially if it’s prolonged or ongoing. This can result in the adrenal glands becoming ‘exhausted’ and may leave the individual feeling tired and ‘stressed out’.
The normal function and maintenance of the nervous system relies on the presence of the B-group vitamins for the production of hormones and neurotransmitters. For example, vitamin B5 is important to the body’s ability to cope with stress because it plays a central role in the functioning of the adrenal glands. Similarly, folic acid, inositol and vitamin B6 are involved in the manufacture and action of mood-supporting hormones such as serotonin.
The B-group vitamins also participate in the metabolic processes of all living cells by serving as coenzymes in the conversion of carbohydrates, proteins and fats from the diet into energy.
In Blackmores Executive B Stress Formula, these B-group vitamins are accompanied by other nutrients that support adrenal gland and nervous system function, including vitamin C, zinc and magnesium.
Stress, strenuous physical activity, and overindulgence in alcohol may all increase an individual’s requirements for these nutrients, so supplementation may be beneficial in these circumstances.
Blackmores Executive B Stress Formula also contains the herbs passionflower and oats, which have traditionally been taken to support the nervous system during times of stress and are regarded as mild sedatives.
