Stress places a heavy load on the nervous system and adrenal glands, especially if its prolonged or ongoing. This can result in the adrenal glands becoming exhausted and may leave the individual feeling tired and stressed out.
Research shows that stress is widespread in the community, and in particular, up to 70% of women report being affected.
The normal function and maintenance of the nervous system relies on the presence of the B-group vitamins for the production of hormones and neurotransmitters. For example, vitamin B5 is important to the bodys ability to cope with stress because it plays a central role in the functioning of the adrenal glands. Similarly, folic acid and vitamin B6 are involved in the manufacture and action of mood-supporting hormones such as serotonin.
The B-group vitamins also participate in the metabolic processes of all living cells by serving as coenzymes in the conversion of carbohydrates, proteins and fats from the diet into energy.
In Blackmores Womens D-Stress, these B-group vitamins are accompanied by other nutrients that support adrenal gland and nervous system function, including vitamin C, zinc and magnesium.
Stress, strenuous physical activity, and overindulgence in alcohol may all increase an individuals requirements for these nutrients, so supplementation may be beneficial in these circumstances.
Withania is a calming, relaxing Ayurvedic herb that has traditionally been used to balance the nervous system, and taken as a tonic during or after periods of anxiety or stress. It contains choline, a nutrient that is important for memory and learning function.
Magnesium and vitamin B6 work together to support the healthy functioning of the female reproductive system and help maintain a healthy menstrual cycle.
Zinc is an important antioxidant, which may be depleted during times of stress. Aside from its role in the bodys stress-coping mechanisms, it is involved in the maintenance of immunity and healthy skin, and in the detoxification of alcohol and other chemicals.
