Natural Stress Busters - 3 Vitamins for Stress Relief

Stress depletes a number of vitamins, so during stressful times, your demand may increase.  These vitamins help the body to adapt and tolerate stress more effectively.

Magnesium - Released from cells by cortisol, the major stress hormone, Magnesium plays a critical role in managing mental stress. Magnesium is also helpful for stress-associated headaches and migraines by helping to relax the blood vessels.

Pantothenate - Vitamin B5 is a key player in fat burning and metabolism is depleted during stressful times, so it plays a role in stress-related weight gain.  A deficiency in B5 impairs the function of the adrenal glands.  

Vitamin C - helps to support the health function of the adrenal glands, which produce cortisol during times of stress.  Vitamin C is also an antioxidant that helps to neutralize excess free radicals and helps to protect the immune system
