Do Stress Gummies Really Work? Here’s What the Experts Say

Life automatically comes with some stress, whether it be related to work, school, our families, relationships with friends, or any other everyday occurrence. Even life events, such as having a child, getting married, or moving to another city or state, can induce stress. 

 

To some degree, stress helps us get out of our comfort zone and experience change. If we didn’t have a little bit of pressure moving us forward, we would probably stay the same version of ourselves for quite some time. 

 

But what happens when the stress compounds over time and even becomes perpetual? If we are not diligent in processing tension throughout our days, weeks, and months, it will eventually catch up to us. 

 

Stress can manifest as migraines, trouble sleeping, irritability, muscle aches and pains, mood swings, and even a decrease in the immune system. 

 

Finding ways to decompress is crucial, and stress gummies are a fast and easy option — but are they effective? Let’s explore.

 

What Is a De-Stressing Supplement? 

When we are in a state of overwhelm, adding a de-stressing supplement into our diets can help soothe our worries and power us through the day. 

 

 

An effective de-stress gummy will empower your to process anxiety and stress so that you can move through life’s daily challenges with more ease. ASYSTEM De-Stress Gummies include healthful ingredients like Lion’s Mane, Panax Ginseng, and Lemon Balm Extract to enhance cognitive function, improve focus, support mood and sleep, and offer anxiety relief. 

 

Do Stress Gummies Actually Work?

Whether or not a certain stress gummy will be effective depends on factors like the ingredients, potency, and the individual. No two bodies are alike, and no two people will be affected the exact same way by a certain supplement. 

 

Additionally, it is important to give your gummies enough time to really benefit you. It is possible to feel some benefits after taking a de-stress gummy only one time. However, a one-week minimum is recommended to fully evaluate and reflect on a supplement’s effectiveness. 

 

How Does Quality Impact Effectiveness?

It is more challenging to find a high quality gummy than a pill or capsule, because gummies contain many ingredients in each batch. This can result in an inconsistent product, issues with integrity, or inaccurate dosing. 

 

At ASYSTEM, our De-Stress Gummies are cGMP-certified so you can rest assured that you are only getting high quality ingredients that have been manufactured responsibly.

 

What Is cGMP-Certification? 

CGMP stands for Current Good Manufacturing Practices. But what does this really mean? 

 

Essentially, there are certain requirements that must be met during manufacturing, processing, and packaging. Additionally, this certification ensures that the ingredients and doses listed on a product label are accurate and precise. CGMP-certified products undergo a scientific advisory board as another layer of due diligence. 

 

This certification can help guide you towards effective gummy supplements because what you see is what you get. When ingredient lists and dosing guidelines are accurate and honest, you are better able to make sure you are using your supplements correctly and effectively.

 

What Healing Herbs Should I Look for in a Stress Gummy? 

Certain ingredients have been more widely researched regarding their impact on stress. Here are a few of our favorites. 

 

Saffron

This key ingredient is a premium Persian Saffron linked to over ten clinical studies that show it improves emotional well-being, promote relaxation, and can aid better sleep cycles without side effects. In one study, 77% of people using saffron reported feeling more positive and having better mental health in their daily lives.

 

Panax Ginseng 

Cortisol is our major stress hormone. Our body is used to handling only small amounts of cortisol. So, what happens during those intense moments of stress and overwhelm, or chronic periods of stress, when the body constantly releases cortisol? 

 

Chronic, elevated levels of cortisol can take a toll on both our mental and physical health, increasing cardiovascular risks, causing swelling in the body, and weakening the immune system.

 

Panax Ginseng comes from Asia and works wonders in managing the body’s natural process of responding to stress. It is known as the “elixir of life” that can enhance focus and memory, support overall wellness, and support immunity. 

 

Rhodiola Extract

Rhodiola Rosea is an adaptogen that comes from Russia and Asia. Adaptogens have a stimulating impact on the body and mind, and can help us feel more relaxed by supporting our stress response. Adaptogens also support immune health and the functioning of the adrenal glands, another hormonal area of the body activated in times of stress. 

 

Rhodiola can help decrease overwhelming feelings of anger, rage, and anxiety, allowing us to feel grounded.   

 

Lion’s Mane

This mushroom has medicinal benefits, along with the fact that it can be cooked and eaten in meals. There are many ways to use Lion’s Mane, such as stirring it into a tea, eating it raw, cooking it, or drying it.

 

So what makes this fungus so therapeutic? Lion’s Mane is known to enhance brain function and boost the immune system. These healing properties assist the body in relaxing the nervous system for long-term restorative effects. 

 

Lemon Balm 

Though Lemon Balm is part of the mint family, which is known for alertness, this healthful herb has more of a calming effect on the body. 

 

Lemon Balm is native to Europe, North Africa, and West Asia, but is used worldwide for its health benefits. Just like Lion’s Mane, Lemon Balm can be used in meals either cooked or raw, and has benefits spanning from tension relief to cognitive support and improved sleep quality. 

 

Day Terpene 

Terpenes are compounds that help determine the way a plant or herb smells.  Terpenes have direct, physiological effects on our bodies because of this, with Limonene being particularly common in supplements. Limonene is known for alleviating stress and anxiety while promoting peace and mental and physical relaxation. 

 

Our nose is directly connected to the limbic system in the brain that is responsible for emotions and memories. This is one reason why aromatherapy has become popular and the ability to use a different sensation to process what is going on in the body.  

 

Terpenes can also support us by enhancing our mood and easing stress during the day so that we are better able to complete the tasks at hand.

 

How Else Can I Deal With Stress?

Stress gummies alone can be highly effective when you choose the right product, but you may be able to enhance their benefits by pairing your gummies with other stress management techniques. 

 

Sometimes we may need a more ongoing way to decompress, or something more intense like a physical workout to burn through some of the old energy in our system. This is one reason it’s important to have multiple options in your tool belt for taking care of the nervous system and letting go of stress. 

 

A few options for stress management include:

 

  • Meditation
  • Journaling
  • Yoga
  • Intense workouts
  • Adequate sleep
  • Ensuring proper nutrition
  • Massage therapy
  • Sound healing 

 

When used alongside ASYSTEM De-Stress Gummies, these strategies can support your wellbeing from all angles for the ultimate tension relief and wellness support. 

 

Summary 

In times of stress, stress gummies can be a fast and convenient means of finding relief. 

 

Reading ingredient lists, looking for products that are cGMP-certified, and using your gummies properly can help ensure their effectiveness.

 

ASYSTEM’s De-Stress Gummies are cGMP-certified to ensure quality and accuracy of labels, meaning that you can rest assured your stress gummies are top notch. With ingredients like Panax Ginseng and Rhodiola, our gummies support cognitive function while working to ease anxiety and support a healthy stress response. 

 

Pairing your stress gummies with other methods of stress management, like yoga, meditation, and journaling, can help amplify the benefits by making sure your wellness is cared for from all angles. When stress strikes, ASYSTEM is here to support you.
