Bliss™ Stress Management Formula
Ashwagandha Root Extract
Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is an adaptogen with a history of use for relieving stress. Commonly known as “Indian ginseng”, it is regarded as a tonic that may benefit various areas of health, including cognitive and behavioral health. Ashwagandha may have calming capabilities, and antioxidant properties which protect against free radicals. Additionally, ashwagandha may affect cortisol levels.
Passiflora incarnata or passionflower possesses health-promoting properties that can be derived from the leaves, stems and flowers. Native Americans used it traditionally to help calm restlessness, nervousness, improve mood and reduce stress. The main active constituents in passionflower are not clearly understood but the alkaloids and flavonoids of this herb are believed to contribute to its health benefits. One of passionflower’s mechanisms of action may be supporting normal levels of GABA in the brain, which may help to promote relaxation.
Rhodiola Root Extract
“Roseroot” contains a phenylpropanoid glycoside called salidroside/rhodioloside/rhodopsin, which may be responsible for roseroot's relaxation and adaptogenic actions. Rhodiola may help with decreasing periods of occasional fatigue. Roseroot extracts may support to enhance and support mood.
Bacopa has a long history in support in health. Traditionally it has been used for promoting cognitive health, such as supporting memory function and balancing moods. The main active constituents of bacopa are saponins, which include the chemical compounds bacoside A and bacoside B. Bacosides A and B appear to support learning ability, cognitive performance and mood. Bacopa also contains the flavonoids apigenin and luteolin, which may support cognitive health. Apigenin can bind to central benzodiazepine receptors in the brain, which allows it to support brain function, mood, and the body adapt to stress. Luteolin is believed to support cognitive function and may have an effect on mood.
L-Theanine is the major amino acid found in green tea, historically used for its relaxing effects. Theanine may work for relaxation by promoting normal levels of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), serotonin and dopamine, which are associated with mood regulation. Theanine promotes alpha brain wave activity, which may promote a “state of alert relaxation,” and may support healthy stress responses.
Eleuthero Root Extract
Eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus) is an adaptogen which historically has been used in helping the body adapt to stress and occasional fatigue. It is also known as Siberian ginseng, however, it is only a relative of ginseng and not a true ginseng. As an adaptogen, eleuthero supports helping the body to deal with stressful conditions. Eleuthero may support adrenal gland function when the body is under stress. In addition to its effect on stress, Eleuthero may support cognitive function and mental acuity. Eleutherosides are the active compounds found in eleuthero that researchers believe provide many of its health benefits.
What is stress and how can it affect your body?
We all have an idea of what stress means, but that idea may not be complete. Stress is a person’s physical mental or emotional response to change or demand. The different types of stress include acute, episodic and chronic. Acute stress is your reaction to pressures or anticipated pressures of the recent past and near future respectively. It’s short-term stress and includes everyday situations like traffic or having an argument. Episodic stress is frequent acute stress. Usually those with episodic stress have constant nervous energy, have too much going on in their life that they cannot seem to get their head above water, are irritable and impatient, or are always worrying about life. Chronic stress1 results in feeling hopeless about escaping a situation(s) that is depressing, painful or traumatic over extended amounts of time. Being homeless, feeling trapped in a job you hate, or challenging family dynamics can lead to chronic stress.
Another point to remember is that stressors don’t always carry a negative connotation. There can be both positive and negative stress in everyday life: eustress and distress. Eustress can be the thrill of a rollercoaster ride, beginning a new job or having a baby – all positive life events that create normal, nervous or overwhelmed reactions. Distress is the opposite and includes negative stressors like experiencing a death, having a car accident, work or relationship conflict.

What are adaptogens?
