Burlington, Ontario (PRWEB) March 19, 2013
These days Canadians are feeling the effects of stress, and not just because it’s closing in on tax season. Studies show that more than 1 in 4 workers describe their day as extremely stressful. Adult Essentials gummy vitamins would like to remind Canadians to take their B vitamins to combat the ill effects of stress.
Financial stress, like that experienced around tax season, is one of the top stressors for Canadians over the age of 15, coming second to work in a study on the major sources of stress for Canadians. Other sources include time pressure, health concerns, family matters and relationship worries.
Stress is linked to several health concerns, including heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, immune and circulatory complications. As well, stress can contribute to other unhealthy behaviors such as smoking, excessive consumption of alcohol and poor eating habits. Numerous studies link chronic stress to anxiety, depression, insomnia, and fatigue.
“Stress is something people tend to ignore, thinking it’s just part of life. The problem is that stress has many negative health consequences,” reminds Jackie McKenzie Registered Dietician and Consultant for Life Science Nutritionals. “The reality is that our stress is increasing thanks to the technology that allows our stressors to follow us everywhere.”
New studies are attempting to quantify the benefits of vitamin supplementation on people dealing with stress. One study concluded that taking B-complex vitamins led to improved ratings of stress, mental health and vigor, and improved cognitive performance during intense mental processing.
