Those aggravating things that go wrong in the day, those irritating things that go bump in the night – disrupting routines and interrupting sleep – all have a cumulative effect on your brain, especially its ability to remember and learn.
As science gains greater insight into the consequences of stress on the brain, the picture that emerges is not a pretty one. A chronic overreaction to stress overloads the brain with powerful hormones that are intended only for short-term duty in emergency situations. Their cumulative effect damages and kills brain cells.
Did you know that we have an interactive stress test on our website? The test is 11 quick questions, and once you complete it, you’ll receive a Stress Score somewhere between 0 and 100. The higher your Stress Score, the more stress you have.
Stopping the cycle — and reversing it — is where Truehope products come in. For example, Truehope Inositol and Phosphatidyl Choline both can cut your score by 10 points and Truehope EMPowerplus Advanced can shave 25 points off. Check out the clinical studies that show how our products treat stress.
So, what’s your Stress Score? Post it in the comments below.
