Stress and emotional hardship are common aspects of life, things everyone will experience occasionally. But there are “normal” degrees or occurrences of stress and emotional hardship, and many Americans feel they are well beyond that. When stress begins to consume life and become a day-to-day, chronic conflict of the mind, it should be addressed.
Sadly, Americans seem very, very stressed. According to the American Psychological Association (APA):
“Around three-quarters of adults (76%) said they have experienced health impacts due to stress in the prior month, including headache (38%), fatigue (35%), feeling nervous or anxious (34%), and/or feeling depressed or sad (33%).”
This is especially concerning because data shows that when someone struggles with too much stress for too long, it can have particularly harmful effects on their physical and mental well-being, often creating mental health issues that become chronic and debilitating. To that point, again quoting the researchers at APA:
“Adults with a higher average stress level were more likely than those with a lower average stress level to report experiencing headache (59% vs. 20%), fatigue (57% vs. 15%), feeling nervous or anxious (56% vs. 12%), and feeling depressed or sad (57% vs. 10%) due to stress in the past month. Around seven in 10 adults (72%) have experienced additional health impacts due to stress, including feeling overwhelmed (33%), experiencing changes in sleeping habits (32%), and/or worrying constantly (30%).”
Natural Remedies for Overcoming Feelings of Stress and Improving the Body’s Immune System
Humans have used natural remedies to treat physical and mental ailments for thousands of years. For example, broccoli seed extract, a long-time remedy, was recently observed to help schizophrenia patients reduce stress and overall emotional hardship. Quoting a study that observed these results:
“SFN (sulforaphane extracted from broccoli) has the potential to improve cognitive function in patients with schizophrenia.”
Broccoli’s sulforaphane can help schizophrenia patients feel better. And that’s because it provides to them much of the same soothing, relaxing, stress-reducing effects as it does to those who suffer from stress and anxiety. In addition to being a plant-based stress reliever that boosts mental clarity naturally, sulforaphane can also activate proteins that increase the activity of antioxidants. Antioxidants protect against inflammation and oxidative stress that cause disease.
Broccoli seed is so effective at protecting the mind and body that the National Cancer Institute (NCI) rated it a potential anti-cancer supplement. Quoting NCI data:
“Broccoli seed extract has the potential to “accelerate the elimination of carcinogens, protect against cellular damage and prevent cancer formation.”
Immune Solution founder Jackie Page formulated the best broccoli seed, 100% Natural Broccoli Seed Extract. Quoting her announcement of the new product:
“Broccoli extract contains a high amount of sulforaphane, which is a protective compound found in plants that contains sulfur groups. Sulforaphane is produced from the compound glucoraphanin once the plant has been damaged (i.e., chewing). Young broccoli sprouts are very rich in glucoraphanin. They have up to 10-100 times more glucoraphanin than broccoli. Of all the cruciferous vegetables, broccoli has the highest amount of these plant protective compounds. Cooking broccoli destroys sulforaphane. This is why broccoli seed extract is the way to go!”
Improve Mental and Physical Well-Being with Broccoli Seed Extract
A change in the seasons and new work or school schedules might mean more stress and pressure on the immune system, but 100% Natural Broccoli Seed Extract can be the boost one needs to stay positive and healthy. As always, if you have any questions about the product, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Let’s have a healthy and rewarding autumn and a safe and meaningful winter beyond.
