Permanent stress can lead to damage of the intestinal surfaces and breakage of the tight connections in the intestines that protect us from toxins. As a consequence, our body is more accessible to various toxins, pathogens and allergy triggers. Inflammatory substances are activated in the intestine, “bad” intestinal bacteria can multiply unhampered, and you not only no longer feel healthy, but also simply miserable. Nine specifically selected bacterial strains combined in OMNi-BiOTiC® STRESS Repair have the ability to re-establish the balance of intestinal flora, which protects us from harmful bacteria and allergens. With regular use of the OMNi-BiOTiC® STRESS Repair food supplement you can control the natural balance in the intestine, improve the porousness of the intestinal mucosa and consequently promote the production of the tryptophan amino acid (and thereby also the happiness hormones, serotonin and melatonin, the sleep hormone).
First aid for stress!
Selected bacteria strains and prebiotics with enzymes.
Packaging: 7, 28 and 56 sachets
Advice and tricks for your intestine
OMNi-BiOTiC® STRESS Repair*
Do you know the feeling when you have to force yourself to do any activity? Do you feel tired and weak? Do you often feel nervous, chronically tired, afraid and depressed?
In the worst-case scenario, this can be a case of so-called burned-out syndrome. Permanent stress is not limited to only psychological, “non-physical” problems. Scientific research has shown that permanent, repeated stress burdens the entire organism and can seriously damage several organs.
What happens in stressful situations?
When we are in a stressful situation, within milliseconds our brain releases neurotransmitters and stress hormones. Our bodies response to this is by increasing blood pressure, heart rate and breathing frequency; also, blood sugar levels and circulation in the skin and muscles are increased. The pupils dilate, breathing becomes short and the digestion slows down. Our entire body is in stand-by mode.
Big difference: positive and negative stress
If we strain our body to its limits only just a short time, this has the same effect as sports training. We sleep better, our body is balanced and this means we are more vigorous in old age.
But, it is important that the strain is only temporary. Afterwards the body has to calm down again. In such case we are talking about a healthy stress, so-called eustress.
But if our body is exposed to constant stress, we are talking about negative stress, so-called distress. If so, our body and immune system are in constant “alarm mode”.
Effect on organs
Permanent stress can result in a permanent lack of hormones and neurotransmitters, since these are depleted under permanent stress. Due to a lack of adrenaline we experience a lack of energy and feel constantly tired. A lack of hormones leads to anxiety, sleeping disorders and, in worst cases, to depression. A lack of DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) hormone even leads to muscle loss, weight gain and loss of libido. The noradrenalin used up during long-term stress leads to a poor circulation of the internal organs. The cardiovascular and gastrointestinal system are also overloaded. For 85% of people, stress actually impacts on the digestive organs. This is where the saying: “This problem is lying in my stomach” comes from.
When intestine is stressed
Scientific research has shown that the best protection against stress is a properly functioning intestinal tract and not the effects of psychopharmacs.1, 2
There is a direct link between the brain and the intestine. This is influenced by our intestinal bacteria and is crucial in determining whether we can process stress effectively or whether we become sick and nervous as a result of stress. One of the most important neurogastroenterology findings is that our intestine is not only affected by stress (e.g. causing inflammation), but the state of our intestine (in particular its inhabitants, the gut bacteria) has a great impact on our mood and well-being. If our digestion is not functioning properly, tight bonds in our intestine degenerate; these are binding areas on the surface of the intestine that are protecting us from toxins, various pathogens and allergy triggers. Inflammatory substances are activated in the intestine, “bad” intestinal bacteria can multiply unhampered, and you not only no longer feel healthy, but also simply miserable.
How to fight stress efficiently?
A research group led by Prof. Akkermans and Prof. Söderholm tried to determine whether consuming specific gut bacteria can establish such a positive environment that would eliminate medical problems caused by stress. The scientific research team was particularly surprised after they realised even more can be done
if specifically selected bacterial strains are used. Thanks to a special combination of gut synbiotics regular use of the OMNi-BiOTiC® STRESS Repair food supplement can help control and improve The permeability of the intestinal mucosa and thereby promote the production of the tryptophan amino acid (and thereby also the happiness hormone, serotonin and melatonin, the sleep hormone).
Synbiotic for stress
Take OMNi-BiOTiC® STRESS Repair food supplement 1–2 times daily. It is recommended to take this in the morning before breakfast and/or in the evening shortly before going to bed. Due to the high number, ie. 7.5 billion, of selected bacterial strains it will help you establish an efficient protection from stress. Fast and efficient help is especially important for people with great responsibilities and a busy schedule, those who have an irregular work schedule or those exposed to great psychological burdens.
OMNi-BiOTiC® STRESS Repair has a positive effect on oversensitivity due to stress and inflammatory reactions in the intestine3,4.
By regularly using and adding it to your diet, the OMNi-BiOTiC® STRESS Repair food supplement offers you support when your intestine responds to stressful situations with diarrhoea, bloating or pain or when reduced resilience to stress is shown in a diminished ability to concentrate.
When is it best to use OMNi-BiOTiC® Stress Repair?
You can use OMNi-BiOTiC® STRESS Repair food supplement both in the short-term (e.g. before an exam) and also daily – even for years. No side effects have been observed in the use of synbiotic. You cannot get addicted to using a food supplement, even with long-term use. If you are feeling stressed and need to take steps to improve your well-being try OMNi- BiOTiC® STRESS Repair; many users have reported that it helped them feel less stressed and in a better mood.
What does the medical research say?
Neurogastroenterology studies the connection between the gastrointestinal system and the brain, and many studies have shown that the intestinal flora has a great impact on our thinking, emotions and the ability to deal with stress.
Can I do anything else to protect myself from stress?
Yes. There are other ways to help your body keep its optimal ability in stressful situations or to help it re-establish it:
- Through food supplements, with a nutritional or physiological effect;
- Through stimulating the release of happiness hormones and hormones to sleep better;
- Through essential fatty acids that ensure flawless functioning of the cardiovascular system.
How to deal with stress correctly
- Think about your lifestyle. Take breaks to avoid stress. Make sure you keep a regular sleep schedule.
- To combat stress help yourself with a suitable diet and using suitable food supplements if you feel that you need them.
- Introduce changes to your lifestyle: This includes a healthy diet, reducing consumption of empty carbohydrates and alcohol, giving up bad habits (e.g. smoking).
- Movement: Make sure you exercise 3x per week for at least one hour. Even a longer evening walk with your partner is enough.
If you work in a seated position, make sure you relax your cervical vertebrae every hour by rolling your head – even just rolling your eyes is beneficial! Afterwards stretch out to relax the muscles and the tendons.
- Stretching your side body
Place your feet shoulder-width apart and place one hand on your hip and reach over your head with the other hand. Bend to the side and hold this position for 30 seconds. Repeat five times on both sides.
- Forward bend
Place your feet as far apart as possible and roll into a forward bend. Let your arms and head hang loose. If possible, place your hands on the floor for 20 seconds. Repeat three times.
- Pushing against the wall
Press both hands against the wall. Place your right foot in front of your left foot and stretch the last leg while pressing hard against the wall. Hold for 30 seconds. Repeat five times on one side.
- Simply breathe out the stress
Take a two-minute break when the situation gets very stressful. Step aside, close the door (if necessary, go to the toilet) and calm down. The effects will be very beneficial.
- Breathing break
Take a deep breath through your nose all the way to your diaphragm and hold for a while.
Breathe out and take a slightly longer break until your next inhale. Repeat 10–20 times. Your blood pressure will lower.
- Smelling break
Consciously breathe in and breathe out. Imagine you are surrounded by a particularly pleasant smell, e.g. the smell of your favourite perfume, smell of a forest or freshly mowed lawn. Slowly inhale through your nose and feel how the air travels through your lungs and all around your body. Slowly exhale and repeat the exercise several times.
