Add a Supplement When You are Stressed?


We came across this topic some time back and thought it would be good inspiration for a NutriScape.NET article written from the dietitian’s point of view. Here are some quick snippets you can follow.


So after every hurricane, or after every forest fire or earthquake, such as you have had, Julia, governments should be urging people not to resort to so-called comfort food, okay? And I know the people who are very upset, do not crave broccoli. But they really need to feed their brains and their bodies in moments of crisis, and our government should be giving that message. That is an extremely important global mental health issue.

1. EMPower™, EMPowerplus™, and EMPowerplus Advanced™ (EMP)

For: ADHD, mood dysregulation, PMS, symptoms associated with trauma, aggression, depression, stress, anxiety.

For those taking the current EMP formulation for improving mental health symptoms, the dose stipulated on the bottle is two capsules twice a day (the dose recommended for general health). However, the dose more typically used in current research is at least four capsules twice a day. For those using these products for assisting with managing stress, our research after the earthquakes and floods showed that a therapeutic dose may be lower, such as four a day.
