Natrol, Inc., a premier marketer, manufacturer, and distributor of nationally branded nutritional products, has announced its newest nutritional supplement -- Natrol(R) Stress & Anxiety: DAY & NITE -- that includes two effective formulas.+
Natrol's DAY formula helps reduce anxiety and supports calm focus, relaxation, and a positive mood. It features 5-HTP, B Vitamins (folic acid, B6, and B12), and L-Theanine for anxiety reduction and for supporting a smooth transition to evening activities, for better sleep preparation. 5-HTP is a drug-free, plant-derived source of an amino acid that naturally enhances mood by balancing the body's Serotonin -- the chemical messenger affecting emotions, behavior, appetite, thought, and sleep. Theanine, extracted from green tea leaves, helps with non-drowsy relaxation and calmness.+
Natrol's NITE formula is a drug-free and non-habit forming product for the 52 percent of Americans who feel fatigued, lie awake at night, and can't sleep(2). This supplement features Melatonin and L-Glutamine, as well as extracts of Valerian and Grape Seed. Scientific evidence suggests this formula may help reduce nighttime anxiety so consumers can fall asleep quickly and stay asleep longer. Powerful antioxidants (Melatonin and Vitamin E), and Calcium help restore and repair the body's cells while sleeping.+
"According to recent research by the National Sleep Foundation, more than 100 million Americans are losing sleep over the U.S. economy(3)," says Dr. Michael T. Yatcilla, Natrol's Vice President of Research and Development. He continues, "Without proper rest, people can become irritable and more stressed, not to mention unhealthy and unproductive due to lack of energy. Natrol(R) Stress & Anxiety: DAY & NITE offers an effective solution that can be combined with simple, everyday coping mechanisms." +
Some de-stressing activities that can help consumers reduce anxiety and occasional insomnia, and maintain a balanced life include the following:
-- Get in motion - From yoga, Tai Chi and Pilates, to a jog or a brisk walk, exercise can release endorphins, reduce stress, and help maintain good health. Even better would be to get some fresh air and enjoy a good-weather day by exercising outdoors in nature (such as at the beach, mountains, park, etc.).
-- Phone a pal - Create a support system of friends and family to share feelings of anxiety. This support system can provide coping advice and encouragement.
-- Write it down - Oftentimes, it's challenging to "turn off" worry, which can lead to sleeplessness. To de-stress, try expressing anxious feelings in a journal. Also write positive notes of gratitude such as goals achieved and other things to be thankful for.
-- Take time out - Take a break with some "me" time...enjoy a funny movie or light reading.
-- Volunteer for charity - Helping others who are less fortunate can provide perspective on life's important priorities.
