For every day in Now magazine for stress
Beating stress is the order of the day today seeing as its ‘National Stress Awareness Day’. We are really pleased to see OptiBac Probiotics ‘For every day’ recommended in Now magazine as a product to support your physical and mental health through a stressful period.
The author, Lily Soutter, a nutritional therapist outlines the dangers that stress can pose to us. As a nutritional therapist myself, I totally agree with her that stress can very much undermine our health.
Amongst other symptoms, Lily explains that stress causes a raised Cortisol level in the body which in turn can suppress the immune system and lead to increased levels of inflammation. Raised stress levels can cause hair loss, depression and anxiety, as well as heart disease. Additionally, she says, stress can affect gut health:
‘Stress can lead to an increase or decrease in transit time within the colon, leading to diarrhoea, constipation and even cramps’ says Lily. Stress has been linked to IBS and food allergies’
She recommends trying OptiBac Probiotics ‘For every day’ to help support some of these symptoms of stress.
