Vitamins that Help Reduce Stress

Stress is defined as a nonspecific response of the body to any demand made upon it which results in symptoms such as rise in the blood pressure, release of hormones, quickness of breathe, tightening of muscles, perspiration, and increased cardiac activity. Stress is not necessarily negative. Some stress keeps us motivated and alert, while too little stress can create problems. However, too much stress can trigger problems with mental and physical health, particularly over a prolonged period of time. So, it is very important to reduce stress.

Avoiding dependence on stimulants such as alcohol, ensuring you eat a healthy diet and learning effective techniques to deal with stress are all important in managing stress.
