The Product / Supplement of the Month is Stress Re-Balancer. One of the 8 brand new BYWG Supplements.
So many people are running busy lives and juggling so many things that eventually your system can get overwhelmed. We call this “sympathetic overload”.
But what about the chemistry of stress? Cortisol is the hormone produced under stress and science has found some interesting answers to manage this key stress challenge. One of the key ingredients in our BYWG Stress Re-Balancer supplement is Ashwaganda.
Ashwaganda is fascinating with scientific studies supporting its benefits in managing the effects of stress. Lowered cortisol (stress hormones), less anxiety, lowered blood sugar, improved testosterone levels in men, better concentration and decreased inflammation markers for arthritis and heart health are also recorded in double-blinded studies.
That is just one of fourteen ingredients in our selected blend of adaptogens, herbs, vitamins and amino acids to support health, reduce cortisol levels, and provide needed nutrients for cell function and protection. We could go on and on about this unique supplement but you can read more here.
