Relieve Stress, Anxiety, Nervous Exhaustion, and the Blues
We’ve become a very Tense and Anxious Nation. Millions of us are kept awake at night by racing thoughts and are so edgy during the day that our blood pressure skyrockets and our hearts pound — even though there’s no real threat in sight. Over the past three decades, both through good economic times and bad, the United States has transformed into the planet’s undisputed worry champions. Around the turn of the millennium, anxiety flew past depression as the most prominent health issue in America, and it never looked back.
Studies indicate as many as 117 million adults in the U.S. reporting high levels of anxiety. Some manage on their own to cope with the tension, obsessive thoughts and sleepless nights. But many are disabled by their anxiety, unable to work or even go out in public. Anxiety often occurs because the brain is unable to properly regulate two important neurotransmitters called GABA and Serotonin. Basically, stress hormone levels become elevated and the brain is unable to produce the proper amounts of GABA and Serotonin which tell the brain to SLOW DOWN!
Unfortunately, anxiety gets worse over time as these chemicals become depleted further. Whatever the cause, the important thing is to provide the brain with what it needs to defend itself against anxiety and remain happy and calm.
Introducing Revv ReNew
Our formula combines 4 incredible nutrients:
- Patented Sensoril ® multi-patented, all natural, standardized extract of Ashwagandha with the highest, most potent levels of stress-fighting, mood-enhancing bioactive constituents in the industry. Sensoril ® also helps promote more restful deeper sleep patterns.
- GABA, its full scientific name is gamma-aminobutyric acid – occurs naturally in your brain, where it functions as a neurotransmitter and helps regulate brain activity. Unlike other neurotransmitters, GABA has an inhibitory function – it tends to slow down neuron firing.
- Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate is an easily absorbable and a readily available form of B6 that helps regulate the neurotransmitters GABA and serotonin.
- Calcium – calcium is needed for healthy brain function, calcium deficiency can lead to anxiety and moodiness. A Calcium deficiency can make symptoms worse in those who already have stress, anxiety, and nervous exhaustion.
So what’s behind our ballooning issues with anxiety and stress?
For the experts, one particularly egregious offender is America’s increasing loss of community. Human contact and kinship help alleviate anxiety (our evolutionary ancestors, of course, were always safer in numbers), yet as we leave family behind to migrate all over the country, our closest pal is our cell phone, we miss out on this all-important element of in-person connection.
Another factor that adds to this problem especially among young people is our growing reliance on texting and social media for community, which many psychologists say is no substitute for real human interaction. When you’re feeling most dreadful, you don’t run to your Facebook profile for consolation, or call your best friend, you get in bed and pull the covers over your head. A second offender the experts mentioned was the torrent of often nerve-racking information we now consume. For one, the amount of data we take in each day has jumped dramatically. The average Sunday paper contains more raw information than people in earlier eras would absorb over the course of a few years.
Some neuroscientists believe our brains simply weren’t designed to handle that kind of volume. Even worse, this landslide of data is of the alarmist, fear igniting variety. The media does this to us. If the news isn’t covering a grisly murder it is running a story about the hidden threat in your home or newest threat to your health. We live in a culture where fear is used to motivate us.
And finally, and this is where we are most vulnerable; our intolerant attitude toward negative feelings. Quite simply, Americans have developed habits for dealing with anxiety and stress by trying to bury those feelings. We vilify our aversive emotions and fight them. Or we avoid situations that make us nervous. Or we try to bury them with drugs, alcohol, entertainment, shopping sprees or other compulsive behaviors. This just makes the anxiety and worrying worse.
