Are you feeling stressed, tired, or under pressure to get daily tasks completed? Some of the most popular supplements I talk about to help alleviate stress include Ashwagandha, Rhodiola, Magnesium and B Complex. As you know there are many brands of these available, it can be difficult to know which one to choose.
One of the brands we stock is Terranova. Recently I was talking with Laura Downes Nutritional Therapist and she reminded why Terranova is so special.
“ I love the fact that the whole range of Terranova supplements contains no fillers, binders, additives or artificial anything. Everything in the product has a function, is animal free and it is perfectly suitable to anyone following vegetarian or vegan lifestyle.”
I agree with Laura that we can never remove the stress trigger in our lives but that we can moderate how our body’s respond to that stress with adaptogens. Rhodiola root is possibly one of the most popular adaptogenic herbs we have. It is commonly used to support energy levels and endurance, may improve cognitive function and combat stress. Laura told me that Terranova’s Rhodiola is supported by numerous clinical trials, which have demonstrated benefits in both physical exercise stress and psychological stress.
I wondered about the difference between fermented Ashwagandha and one that isn’t fermented. She told me that when herbs are fermented, it unlocks the potent healing and nourishing properties of that plant, to a degree, that the body is often incapable of achieving on its own. Terranova’s Fermented Ashwagandha does just that! Fermented Ashwagandha contains activated compounds in a highly bioavailable form. Research shows these smaller molecules are directly bioactive and penetrate the body more easily, which is what you want from an adaptogen.
And not to forget the best-selling Terranova B Complex for optimum support during times of stress. It provides the full spectrum of B Vitamins, plus Vitamin C, and a Magnifood Complex featuring botanicals that work in synergy with these nutrients. It has been formulated with ingredients which allow the body to resist the damaging effects of stress and restore optimal physiological function.
Getting out in nature, meeting a friend or watching funny movies are all good ways to unwind.
And the fantastic news is Terranova is 25% off for the month of May.
