Stress is unavoidable and if you are like most Americans, the pandemic has left you feeling more stressed than ever before. In fact, the American Psychological Association recently reported that 67% of adults say that they have experienced increased stress over the course of the pandemic and 49% of adults reported that their behavior has been negatively affected – think increased tension and mood swings.1 If you can relate, we invite you to turn to Stressveda™ for relief from both physical and mental stress.
Stressveda™ combines ashwagandha, one of the most highly treasured adaptogens in Ayurveda, with plant-sourced vitamins. The resulting combination helps increase resistance to stress and helps increase energy in the case of mental and physical fatigue related to stress.*
It is important to note that not all ashwagandha root and powder extractions are made equally. Stressveda™ utilizes KSM-66 Ashwagandha®, the most clinically studied ashwagandha on the market with 14+ years of research and development behind it. KSM-66 is made using only grade A roots and is extracted using ‘green chemistry’ with no use of alcohol or solvents.
At Flora we have gone one step further in using KSM-66® Ashwagandha in Stressveda™. We have added food-based vitamins to provide additional anti-aging, antioxidant support and to support the health of the nervous system. These include B vitamins, and vitamins A, C, D, E and K. These are made from fruits and vegetables like spinach, broccoli, carrot, sweet potato, orange, apple, strawberry, sunflower seed, and shiitake and maitake mushrooms. The fruits and vegetables are organically grown in the USA.
So why include the B vitamins? Studies have shown that B vitamins can help the body break down food, increase energy and have a positive effect on chronic stress. B6 (pyridoxine) is especially good for hormone balance while B5 (pantothenic acid) can help with the proper functioning of the nervous system which can become overstimulated during times of stress.* One particular 12-week study with 60 participants suffering from work-related stress found that those who took a vitamin B complex supplement had fewer work-related stress symptoms such as anger, fatigue, and depression compared with placebo.2
