Your new stress ball. 

Your new stress ball. 

I'm a Type A person. I'm high-strung. I feel all the feelings. Stress gets to me. When I get stressed, stuff just starts to fall apart in my body. The key to not getting stressed? I can either get a lobotomy, or I can just rely on my girl Gaia for some adrenal support. 

Gaia Herbs' Adrenal Health  is my go-to for when I'm a Nervous Nelly (or maybe just an Anxious Annie?!) It has chill-inducing blend of herbs like ashwagandha, holy basil, rhodiola, and shisandra to regulate your body's response to stress hormones. I tend to think the ashwangandha is doing most of the work--it's one of Ayurveda's strongest herbs and has been used for centuries to regulate stress, improve mental energy, reduce fatigue, and flush out inflammation. The best thing about this supplement is that it won't make you all sleepy and goofy like a lot of calming herbs. You'll still have plenty of mental clarity without all the RED ALERT STRESS ZONE stuff happening. It helps me feel more in control of my emotions when I would normally be a sensitive, fragile mess. 

A word of warning: ashwagandha and holy basil are very powerful herbs, so be sure to check with your herbalist or doc before taking this supplement.
