What are the effects of stress on the body?
Nearly 65% of the adult population experience the results of stress every day and unfortunately, this number is increasing. We are living in the world where stress is an integral part of our everyday life, both at home and at work. Stress is the body’s natural defence mechanism which works perfectly in the situations of sudden threat, when a rapid response to stimuli (stressors) is required, however, it can have some harmful effects if it lasts too long. If it is caused by everyday challenges and our body performs activities outside its capabilities and has no time to regenerate, we feel anxious, distressed, irritated and constantly tired. Living under continuous stress can lead to many serious complications. It can result in changes of our behaviour, cognitive functions and emotions. The most common symptoms of stress are: loss of appetite, addictions (alcohol), fast and deep breathing, excessive sweating, decrease in libido, changes of social behaviour, sleeping problems, nightmares. Stress also reduces our immune response and hinders proper functioning of the nervous system which leads to a decreased ability to concentrate and think creatively and reduces our perception. It weakens our performance capacities, triggers extreme emotions and feelings (anger, sadness, depression), it leads from increased activity and mobilisation to fatigue and powerlessness.
What are ADAPTOGENS and how they affect human body in stressful situations?
Toady it is not possible to avoid stress but we can learn how to efficiently handle it and control its symptoms. Nature provides us with help giving adaptogens. These substances increase body’s ability to adapt to the changeable environmental conditions. Most adaptogens come from plants whose biologically active agents can have regulatory effects on human body enhancing its resistance to stressful situations experienced every day. They have no sedative effects, but only adaptive and mobilising and thus, unlike herbal tranquilizers such as for example valerian, they do not have confusing effects but only boost cognitive capabilities, increase ability to concentrate and think logically. Adaptogens have body’s adaptive properties, help to control reaction to stress factors faced by us both at work and at home.
