Many of us face stressful situations every day that cause worry, anxiety, and decrease our quality of life. Some potentially stressful situations such as traffic, relationships, giving presentations, or attending important meetings are predictable stressors that we can often prepare for in advance. However, other stresses such as being confronted with something we fear, hearing bad news, or a traffic accident may occur suddenly and without warning. Over time, repeated stress can have cumulative negative effects on our mental and physical health, which can contribute to cardiovascular disease, impaired immunity, headaches, insomnia, and even depression. Prescription drugs such as anti-anxiety medications and sleep aids may be used to deal with some aspects of stress, but they only mask symptoms and come with the risk of serious side-effects. SISU Stress Rescue features L-Theanine, a safe, natural remedy that has been helping people deal more effectively with stress for thousands of years and modern human research has proven its therapeutic effects.
