WILLIAMS, Ore., Nov. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Herb Pharm, manufacturer of America's number one selling brand of liquid herbal extracts, today announced the introduction of STRESS MANAGER™ liquid herbal compound, created from a combination of herbs known to relieve anxiety, calm nerves and relieve overall chronic stress.
All stress is not bad! It is our response to stress that keeps us alive and alert. Normal stress comes and goes. It is typically short-lived and our recovery from it is fairly rapid. However, it is the long-term, chronic stress - the kind that we experience day-in and day-out, and which feels inescapable - which causes an overload for our nervous and endocrine systems.
David Bunting, Herbal Affairs Manager at Herb Pharm, said, "The deleterious effects of chronic stress include reduced immunity, high blood pressure and other cardiovascular manifestations, fatigue, poor digestion, mental and psychic anomalies like loss of concentration, anxiety, depression and insomnia. While chronic stress may be inescapable, there are steps we can take to counter its effects."
STRESS MANAGER™, Herb Pharm's new liquid compound, includes herbs classified as Adaptogens which are well suited to helping us deal with chronic and excessive stress. STRESS MANAGER™ includes:
- Eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus) appears to enhance resistance to overwork and environmental factors such as heat and cold
- Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) has been used for thousands of years in China and Japan as a longevity tonic, increases oxygenation of the blood and has been used to curb altitude sickness
- Holy Basil (Ocimum sanctum & O. gratissimum) is used in Ayurvedic medicine to clear the mind and improve memory, enhance immunity, strengthen the nervous system and improve digestion and absorption
- Rhodiola (Rhodiola rosea) has held a place in Asian and Scandinavian traditional medicine for enhancing strength and physical endurance, longevity and fertility. Rhodiola is known to help with stress related states that manifest in disturbed sleep, poor appetite or over-eating, irritability, mild depression, headache and general fatigue
- Schisandra (Schisandra chinensis), like Reishi, is said to quiet the spirit and calm the heart, which makes it valuable with neuroses, irritability, memory loss and insomnia
As a liquid herbal extract blend, STRESS MANAGER™ is optimally absorbed by the body and designed to steadily address the mental and physical aspects of chronic stress without the jolting effects of short-lived stimulant ingredients and sugar.
STRESS MANAGER™ can be found in health food stores and practitioner offices, or online at www.herb-pharm.com.
