Stress Tonic, 100 mls
Stressed? Exhausted? Do you find your energy picks up around 6pm or 11pm? How about that 3 pm crash? All signs of stress and adrenal exhaustion.
Use this tonic for, you guessed it, stress & exhaustion. It helps with adrenal health and provides liver support. It also provides support for the thyroid.
Great, just great, but what the heck are you talking about? Hmmmm. Every day things can be stressful from getting ready for the day or looking after an ill or elderly relative. Maybe the virus-who-shan't-be-named and being in and out of lockdown has done your head in. The kids are fighting, the cat's thrown up on the carpet yet again. Throw in making dinner, driving, working or not being able to work and stress builds.
Stress causes the release of stress hormones such as adrenalin & cortisol all beautifully made by the adrenal glands. Bless our adrenals, they keep us going, get us out of the way of the attacking lion, then go back to resting. Except nowadays they get to work all the time. Due to continual stress they become exhausted and can't do their job as they should.
Communications between the hypothalamus (a fancy name for the regulatory part of the brain,) the pituitary (another part of the brain) and the adrenals becomes disrupted. This HPA axis becomes a communication nightmare. And we all know what happens when communication breaks down!
So now sleep becomes erratic, moods swing, the need for coffee increases, energy levels change, food cravings become the norm, weight changes all of which all causes more stress!
Beautiful herbs of Withania, Rehmannia, Liquorice, Siberian Ginseng, & Milk Thistle are here to help. They help to regulate the HPA axis communication nightmare, provide strength, hold the adrenals as they cry, support the liver, and help the thyroid.
Withania, known as Ashwaganda, is a wonderful stress supporting herb. It deals with the hypothalamus, pituitary, thyroid, and adrenals communication systems allowing for optimal communication. It is a stress adaptogen.
Rehmannia helps the thyroid and the adrenals. It provides support for both allowing for healing while helping to continue to function. A remarkable herb. It also helps to decrease inflammation, which is usually high in a stressful situation.
Liquorice helps with adrenal health, gut health, lung health, & liver health. It helps with cortisol regulation. When combined with Rehmannia, the adrenal support is increased as they tend to all levels of the adrenal cortex and adrenal medulla.
Siberian Ginseng helps with exhaustion and long term physical strength. If your stress is a marathon, this herb is the energy boost one needs around mile 21.
Milk Thistle, or also known as St Mary's Thistle, is great liver support. Why, though? With stress, many toxins are produced. This helps the liver function more efficiently. And, maybe there's a few toxins being ingested during stressful times.
