Ultimate Stress Blasters

Blasting tension away doesn't require a trip to the spa or a far-away vacation. Eliminate stress on an everyday basis with these easy and useful tips and tricks. 

Suma Extract

Suma extract is a vine root that grows in the South American rainforest and is used as a tonic to regulate many systems of the body. It is a traditional medicine that acts like your body’s buffer to outside stressors. It balances blood sugar levels to combat mood swings. Suma root contains 19 different amino acids, a large number of electrolytes, trace minerals, iron, magnesium, zinc, vitamins A, B1, B2, E, K, and pantothenic acid. Suma extract can be found online and in health food stores. Take 500 mg twice daily.

Stress-blasting Salad

The ingredients in this salad blast your body’s most unhealthy reactions to stress. Avocados are high in potassium, which lowers high blood pressure. Almonds are rich in magnesium, which works in the nervous system to help anxiety. Asparagus is rich in mood-stabilizing folic acid, so it puts you in a good mood.

Herbal Concepts Neck Wrap

This stress blaster combines aromatherapy with muscle soothing for a powerful effect. It is made with over 13 stress-busting herbs and grains, like lavender and valerian root. Heat up the neck wrap in microwave for 1 minute to loosen neck muscles and relieve tension.

De-stress With a Stretch

Stress restricts blood flow, causing tension in your muscles and lower back. Stretching stimulates receptors in the nervous system that decrease the production of stress hormones. The secret is to isolate the muscles that store tension by stretching the lower back, shoulders and neck.
