Beating stress seems to be order of the day as today is ‘National Stress Awareness Day’. We are really pleased to see OptiBac ‘For every day’ recommended in Now magazine as a product to support your health during stressful periods.

OptiBac 'For every day' has been featured in Now magazine

The author, Lily Soutter (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 ‘For every day’ to help support some of the symptoms of stress. Excitingly, we've been recommended for stress and its side effects before:
