GOOD TO KNOW
Since pork is an excellent source of vitamin B6 and B12, it can help you meet some of your stress management needs.
ALTERNATIVE FOR PRESSED PEOPLE
Any physical or mental stress significantly increases the body's need for certain nutrients, particularly vitamins B and C. For example, almost half of all available vitamin C is used by the adrenal glands, the "stress glands". . Stress B + C-500 is a long-acting formula, with a high content of B complex vitamins, necessary for the proper functioning of the nervous system and the energy metabolism of cells in times of stress. Vitamin C complements this formula to help reduce oxidative stress. The body does not store these water soluble vitamins; it is therefore important to ensure an adequate daily intake.
