Shaklee Corporation has introduced Stress Relief Complex, a dietary supplement claimed to help provide prompt and effective relief from everyday stress, without causing drowsiness.
Stress Relief Complex uses natural ingredients that have been clinically tested and shown to promote a relaxed yet alert state of mind, said the company. The product is also reported to enhance the body's ability to adapt to continuing stress.
During stress the body produces cortisol, a hormone known to impact long-term health. Stress Relief Complex helps blunt the production of cortisol, helping the body to avoid the effects of stress on long-term health.
"Since Stress Relief Complex does not contain kava, it provides relief without any feelings of unwanted drowsiness that are associated with kava. In fact, Stress Relief Complex helps the body stay alert and focused," said Ray Cooper, vice president of research and health sciences for < href="http://www.shaklee.com"target_blank">Shaklee.
"Consumers have been wary about kava, especially after its recent association with potential severe liver damage, and Shaklee has always been committed to providing safe and natural solutions."
Stress Relief Complex includes L-theanine, which is the primary amino acid found in green tea that promotes a relaxed, yet alert state; Ashwagandha, a herb used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine that enhances the body's ability to adapt to stress; Beta-Sitosterol and L-Tyrosine.
