Stress is unfortunately too common in everyday living and may have major consequences on mental and physical health and longevity. Hormones produced as a component of the stress response including cortisol and corticosterones can damage cells and tissues. Stress may significantly impact the body, including acceleration of the aging process, including aging of the skin and brain. Animals studies replicating the effects of repeated stress under controlled conditions, showed that administration of Schisandra and Rhodiola Rosea MARKEDLY DECREASED levels of stress hormones, producing a strong anti-stress effect. Researchers concluded that effects on stress were the result of a balancing effect on the HPA (Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal) axis.
