If you feel out of sorts, tired, and absolutely exasperated these days, you’re not alone. Has there ever been a more exhausting time in human history?
On one side, we’re being battered by the nasty coronavirus. On the other, we’re being slammed by an even nastier political season.
And while the election will be over soon, the COVID-19 drama isn’t going away for a while yet.
Plus, we can toss in the fact that we’ll soon be in the midst of a chaotic pandemic holiday season. So you can bet we’ll be seeing even more frazzled nerves and bloodshot eyes all across the nation.
We’re not just stressed anymore. We’re just plain burned out. And an extra cup of coffee isn’t going to cut it.
But new research reveals a natural herbal therapy that can help chase away that life-sapping stress and help restore your energy and willpower.
Battle stress and anxiety with “Nature’s Xanax”
Way up in the arctic north where the trees give way to tundra, and you’re more likely to run into Santa’s elves than people, you’ll find a curious little plant.
The tight clusters of thick, green stalks are topped with golden flowers, making them stand out in the stark landscape. But the most curious thing about the Rhodiola rosea plant isn’t its ability to thrive in the remote regions where it grows.
It’s what it can do inside your body.
Sometimes called “Nature’s Xanax,” Rhodiola is the natural answer to stress and anxiety. In fact, it’s been proven in multiple studies to help restore peace, calm, and overall quality of life for many folks.
And a new study puts this potent plant to the test with something we’re ALL experiencing right now. Researchers checked its effectiveness against the signs and symptoms of burnout.
You know what I’m talking about. It’s when you’re beyond stressed. When you’re feeling worn out, slow, unable to focus, and you even struggle with basic tasks.
I think we’re ALL feeling a bit of that right now. And in some cases, maybe A LOT of that.
Beat the burnout and feel like yourself again
In the new study, Rhodiola rosea was able to soothe the burnout symptoms and restore a sense of normalcy.
Over 12 weeks, a group of middle-aged adults suffering from burnout was given 400 mg of Rhodiola per day.
Their symptoms were kept track of using a standardized test called the attention network test. The test measures the vital mental functions of alerting, orienting, and executive control… all of which plunge when you’re battling burnout.
The volunteers getting the supplement had significant improvements in critical markers of burnout, including:
- FASTER reaction times
- IMPROVED mental speed
- BETTER use of mental resources
The Rhodiola rosea helped reverse the burnout, making it an invaluable tool during these difficult times.
But that’s not all it can do. As I mentioned earlier, it’s also a powerful natural anxiety and stress buster. Which means it could help head off burnout before it strikes.
If you want to give it a shot yourself, you can find Rhodiola anywhere supplements are sold. And if you need a little extra help I recently wrote about 4 easy ways to ease anxiety and restore calm.
