Support Your Brain, Support Your Heart

January 13, 2017

Mental health issues don’t get much attention, especially the everyday ones. But that everyday stress can have considerable wear and tear on not just your mind, but your body. Researchers have found a strong connection between stress (specifically more activity in the amygdala, which regulates the body’s response to stress and fear) and your heart. Too much stress can raise your risk of heart attack or stroke.

So let’s focus on reducing stress:

What’s the simplest thing you can do? Give your stressed-out brain some extra support with D.S.A. MGRx. With herbs well-known for supporting the mind against depression, sadness, and anxiety, it might be just the boost you need.

Or budget out some time for an action with documented stress-busting effects like exercise, meditation, time volunteering, or a repetitive/soothing hobby (some traditional ones are things like knitting, or wood-working).

If you’ve been stressed for a while and are more worried about heart health, then getting exercise is actually a double-hitter, since it strengthens your heart while reducing stress and anxiety. Diet can also do both. If you want a boost, try a heart supporting multivitamin like Mito Cardia.

The good news is that it’s almost never too late to start making small, positive changes. Start with 5 minutes a day (or less than one, if you’re taking nutritional support like D.S.A. MGRx) and roll it into something bigger. When you’re starting something new, the definition of success is just getting it done (there’s a huge difference between no exercise and mild or moderate, and a small health difference between moderate and intense, for instance). Start new habits tomorrow and order D.S.A. MGRx today!
