TORRANCE, Calif., July 29 Researchers at the 115th AnnualConvention of the American Psychological Association (APA), reported thatchronic stress can intensify inflammation and increase a person's risk fordeveloping central nervous system infections, neurodegenerative diseases, andinflammatory diseases.(1)

Stress can be brought on by internal and external factors, such asemotional conflict, poor coping skills, financial problems, job loss, poordiet, and environmental pollution. In small doses, stress is a good thing.It keeps you on your toes and helps you to get things done. But, too much maycause general poor health or specific physical or psychological illnesses.(2)

Chronic stress is not only dangerous, it's prevalent, and leads toanxiety. The 2007 Stress and Anxiety Disorder study found seven out of tenadults in the United States say they experience stress or anxiety daily.Approximately one-third report persistent stress or excessive anxiety daily;or that they have had an anxiety or panic attack.(3)

Exercise, a healthy diet, lifestyle counseling, and nutritionalsupplements help combat stress and anxiety.

One nutritional approach is to fortify the body against the effects ofstress instead of relieving symptoms. Sun Chlorella USA provides atwo-pronged strategy.

Their Sun Eleuthero is an adaptogen, which is known to help the bodyadjust to stressful situations without a stimulatory effect. It works byhelping to relieve the constant strain on the adrenal glands, which areresponsible for the production of cortisone and adrenaline -- two naturaladaptogens.
