Energy & Stress

Posted on September 22, 2010 | Filed Under Articles  

Stress is a nervous response of the body and mind to external or internal irritants. Stress can be anything that upsets the normal body balance. Your body’s reaction to stress includes action by the adrenal glands. They secrete epinephrine (also called adrenaline), a hormone that activates your natural defense mechanisms. This may include a pounding heart, an increase in blood pressure, dilation of your pupils and muscular tension. This combination of reactions helps your body to either fight the danger (or stressor) or take fiight (run away from it).

Many stressors are not sudden so as to engender this response. Some challenges such as losing a loved one, taking a new job, becoming ill, etc. are stressful and may cause physical and psychological changes that occur more gradually.

ENERG-V Is a popular herbal supplement for lack of energy or fatigue. It is also considered a type of “spring tonic” which improves stamina and vitality by cleansing the body of metabloic by-products. Persistent fatigue or lack of energy, which is not caused by underlying illness, is usually the result of poor dietary lifestyle and habits, especially the combination of a high-fat and high-refined-carbohydrate diet and emotional stress. Alcohol, caffeine, drugs, tobacco, stresses, and incorrect eating habits are all energy robbers. ENERG-V contains bee pollen, ginkgo biloba leaves, kelp plant, licorice root, siberian ginseng, yellow dock root, barley grass herb, rosehips fruit, schizandra fruit, capsicum fruit and other ingredients.
