10 Best Stress Busters - 7

Score Some Herbs

By strengthening your body's ability to handle stress, a class of herbs called adaptogens keeps everyday pressure from wreaking havoc on your immune system. Dubbed the "king adaptogen," eleuthero (also known as Siberian ginseng) has been shown to normalize blood pressure and blood-sugar levels and stop stress from draining your adrenal gland's supply of vitamin C. But herbs like Asian ginseng, American ginseng, rhodiola, ashwagandha, and schizandra also act as key adaptogens, according to Yance, who believes a blend of primary and secondary adaptogens is best. Look for combo formulas such as bacopa and holy basil.
