Can stress influence disease?

Most people get stressed every once in awhile. Whether it is due to a project, deadline at work or a bunch of screaming children, a little stress is normal. However, too much can put strain on the mind and body. It has even been associated with heart disease, infectious disease and depression.

A recent study has even found that stress can promote the development and progression of disease. According to researchers at Carnegie Mellon University, this is because psychological stress can decrease the body’s ability to regulate the inflammation.

“When under stress, cells of the immune system are unable to respond to hormonal control, and consequently, produce levels of inflammation that promote disease. Because inflammation plays a role in many diseases such as cardiovascular, asthma and autoimmune disorders, this model suggests why stress impacts them as well,” explained study lead author, Sheldon Cohen.

Therefore, a person may want to do everything they can to reduce psychological stress. A supplement from Dr. Newton’s Naturals like Vital B-100 may help. The nutrient-rich B capsules are blended with all-natural agents to reduce stress and replenish the nervous system. Developed by Dr. Michael Pinkus, it contains eight B vitamins and antioxidants for total nervous system support.
