Stress Supplements

In the 21st century, our lives are becoming busier than ever before and we sometimes need a little help to regain a sense of calm and harmony. Our range of stress supplements are designed with this in mind and are filled with specific nutrients to help. Magnesium is involved in functions all over the body; known as ‘nature’s tranquiliser’, magnesium has a calming effect on muscles and nerves. Some B vitamins are also important for reducing tiredness and fatigue, making them ideal vitamins for stress. Theanine may be beneficial during times of increased pressure and adaptogenic herbs normalise and regulate the body’s function which is important during stressful times.

In today's fast-paced world, it's no wonder that so many people are looking for stress supplements to help them cope with the demands of everyday life. With so many different products on the market, it can be hard to know which one is right for you. Stress is a part of life. It can be caused by work, family, or other factors. Certain supplements, such as those found in our range, can help you to manage stress, to ensure you do not become overwhelmed and drained by it.


Key vitamins which may help to support stress include B vitamins which support the nervous system and the adrenal glands which manage the body’s stress response, and vitamin C which supports balanced adrenal health. Other stress-supporting nutrients include magnesium, often referred to as ‘nature’s tranquiliser’, l-theanine which is a relaxation-promoting amino acid found in tea, and adaptogens including ashwagandha.

Whilst we can’t always control the sources of stress in our lives, we can help to support our body in handling it. Some natural ways to relieve stress include exercise which can help lower cortisol levels, yoga which reinforces the ‘mind-body’ connection, meditation, a good sleep routine, and ensuring an adequate intake of nutrients via diet or supplements.

Vitamin B12 can help to support stress as it is required for a healthy nervous system. Stress is known to deplete our levels of vitamin B12, so keeping its levels topped up through diet or supplements can be useful during times of stress.

Zinc plays a role in supporting healthy nervous system function, and is also crucial for the function of neurotransmitters including serotonin and dopamine – also known as our ‘happy hormones’. When we feel overwhelmed with stress, our body uses up its zinc stores faster, so increasing our levels of this micronutrient via our diet or supplements is recommended.

Stress is our body’s natural defence against a perceived or real challenge or threat. When we perceive danger, our adrenal glands release the hormone cortisol into our bloodstream, which is often referred to as our ‘fight or flight’ mechanism. Common causes of stress in today’s modern world include demanding work hours, financial concerns, relationships or marriage problems, family life, bereavement, and moving house, amongst other factors.

Symptoms of stress can vary from person to person and may include physical symptoms such as headaches and muscle tension, gastrointestinal ssues, and a faster heartbeat. Mental signs of stress include feeling overwhelmed, irritability, difficulty concentrating, and trouble sleeping. If you are feeling stressed, you may notice a change in your appetite, and an increase in drinking alcohol or smoking too.

Key micronutrients for stress support including vitamin B12, vitamin C and zinc are often depleted by the body during particularly stressful times so keeping levels of these nutrients topped up is recommend. Whilst most of us strive to eat a well-balanced diet, a high-quality supplement can be a convenient way to fill any nutrient gaps which may appear.

Natural ways to lower stress hormones such as cortisol include establishing a sleep routine and avoiding blue light exposure from mobile devices before bed, exercising earlier in the day, limiting your caffeine intake, and eating a nutrient-dense diet including vitamin B12, vitamin C, and magnesium-rich foods or supplements.
