For many years, stress supplements have been little more than herbal sedatives. While such products help us calm down, they do not address the imbalances that cause us to experience extreme reactions to stressful events in the first place. Unless these imbalances are resolved, they can lead to many severe health challenges.
Holistic medical systems teach that extreme stress grows out of congestion in the liver. This congestion causes excess heat to accumulate in this organ. Eventually, this heat erupts upwards, affecting the gall bladder and inhibiting digestion. As the heat moves through what Traditional Chinese Medicine calls the "Heart System," it leads to agitation, which causes extreme reactions to stressful events.
With its extracts of Magnolia and Zizyphus seeds, Stress 4 Way Support System works very quickly to restore a sense of calm. But, it also provides factors that strengthen the Heart and Liver Systems, and that clear liver congestion. Because of this, it helps you make "molehills out of mountains," so that every stressful event passes more easily.
