Tackling Back to School Stress
Last year, CBC ran a story about the stresses kids and parents face when school starts back.
Psychiatrist Dr. Shimi Kang reiterated that children may not be able to express stress and anxiety as such. Parents should be on the lookout for signs like headaches, stomach aches, tiredness, irritability, meltdowns, and general lack of focus. Dr. Kang goes on to say that it is important for parents to stay positive, as children are sensitive to their environments and can pick up subtle cues of stress.
Dr. Kang recommends plenty of sleep, deep breathing, and a healthy diet with plenty of water. These basics are crucial to humans of any age. However, for times when the basics are not enough, supplementation should be considered. Here are a few recommendations:
L-Tyrosine: The student's edge: did you know that when taking Life Choice L-Tyrosine one hour prior to writing an examination, stress due to anxiety is drastically reduced and the ability to better focus is increased? Tyrosine is responsible for the production of the brain neurotransmitters norepinephrine, epinephrine and dopamine. Norepinephrine enables concentration. Epinephrine is better known as adrenaline; it provides extra blood to the brain and muscles, which also produces energy, especially in times of stress. Dopamine provides the mental tools needed to deal with daily stresses. As any student could testify, all 3 of these neurotransmitters come into play when studying!
GABA: GABA is found throughout the central nervous system (CNS), assuming an ever-enlarging role as a significant influence for pain, stress, anxiety, depression as well as stress-induced illness. Before January 1995, there were over 2000 documents and texts on GABA, describing how it affects anxiety/stress in the brain and CNS. Human behavior involves the functioning of the whole nervous system, and the nervous system needs amino acids. GABA, glutamine and glycine are vital for energy and the smooth running of the brain functions. B6 (pyridoxine) is GABA's most important partner.
Kava: Although Kava is best-known as a ceremonial beverage in the South Pacific, it also has incredible properties for stress. Kava calms anxiety while keeping the mind clear, making it ideal for students and parents alike. With our brand of Kava Kava, Canadians can once again enjoy the relaxing benefits of Kava Kava supplementation, with no worries over legality or safety. And now, in an easy-to-take liquid form, anyone can enjoy the relaxing benefits of Kava Kava!
