[The Stress Monkey Guru]'s advice has helped me immensely. She made a recommendation that helped to bolster my immune system and increase my energy. During the H1N1 scare, I was teaching at a college five days a week and never got sick. I'm always amazed at how much she knows about health and wellness."
Lavender Calm, by Nature's Life, is a wonderful product for helping the body handle stress and anxiety—it really helps "take the edge" off without making you the least bit tired. It nourishes the adrenal glands and contains 5-htp which is a serotonin precursor, which helps with minor depression. Please note that it does smell like lavender when you open the bottle and when you swallow it—the flavor/smell does not repeat however. It is NOT appropriate for people who are on SSRIs due to the inclusion of the 5-htp so speak with your doctor if you are on any kind of antidepressants before taking this product.
Caution: As with any dietary or herbal supplement, you should advise your health care practitioner of the use of this product. If you are nursing, pregnant, or considering pregnancy, you should consult your health care practitioner prior to using this product.
