Alleviating stress and supporting a restorative night of sleep
Nature’s Answer- 50-year tradition that you can trust.
With a passion for healthy living coupled with an interest in the healing powers of plants and herbs, Frank D’Amelio senior and his wife Josephine turned their vision into their family-owned business in 1972. Nature’s Answer is one of America’s largest and oldest manufacturers of nutritional supplements with a proud tradition of providing the highest quality and purity of ingredients in every product. Today, Nature’s Answer continues to combine the best of traditional herbal remedies, vitamins and minerals with innovative scientific techniques and phytopharmaceutical manufacturing, to deliver supplements of the finest quality and value.
Nature’s Answer Ashwagandha is a potent holistically balanced, alcohol-free liquid herbal extract – being in a liquid form allows for faster absorption and utilisation than tablets. It is standardised to provide a guaranteed level of its active plant constituents known as withanolides.
Traditionally used in Ayurveda, Ashwagandha has been known to be one of the most prized botanicals. Ashwagandha is traditionally used to support a calm mind and encourage restful sleep. It is extensively used in India as a daily tonic to support energy levels. Studies show that it also has the potential to reduce cortisol and lower stress levels. Research has looked into Ashwagandha’s ‘adaptogenic’ effects. ‘Adaptogens‘ is a term used to define those foods or herbs which have shown to help the body adapt to situations of stress, whether physical or mental.
Ashwagandha’s botanical name Withania somnifera gives us a clue about its traditional use - as ‘somnifera’ means sleep-inducing.
Chamomile flowers are traditionally used as a natural calming aid and may help improve your sleep quality. They are thought to support the mind and body by helping to aid overall relaxation, soothe the stomach and combat symptoms of anxiety.
Made from the tops of these daisy-like flowers, the Nature’s Answer Chamomile Liquid Extract uses only sustainably sourced ingredients for a super-concentrated formula. This blend can be taken before bedtime or up to three times a day to help promote stress relief.
Nature’s Answer Passionflower:
It is estimated that one in three of us suffer from poor sleep. Cortisol, the stress hormone, can have a negative effect on melatonin production and the ability to sleep. Chronic lack of sleep may cause us to feel both physically and psychologically below par. Create a ritual for going to sleep – taking liquid herbal remedies such as passionflower can be part of this. Passionflower, otherwise known as Passiflora, may help to induce calm, rest and sleep as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. It is the natural flavonoid compounds found in passionflower that have been linked to improving sleep duration, sleep quality and relieving anxiety. Nature’s Answer Passionflower provides this botanical in an alcohol-free, non-GMO, concentrated liquid format.
Nature’s Answer Marine Based Magnesium:
In times of stress, we may tend to reach for processed foods, sweet treats, stimulants and alcohol, however it is at these times that we need to eat more nutrient-dense, easily digestible foods than ever. The need for certain nutrients may increase when the body is under mental, emotional or physical stress, especially vitamin C, B vitamins and magnesium. As part of a healthy and balanced diet, magnesium can support the nervous system and contribute to normal psychological function. Foods that supply magnesium include dark green leafy vegetables, beans, nuts, and whole grains. However, due to soil depletion and poor eating habits, many people may not be getting enough magnesium in their diet alone.
Nature’s Answer Marine Based Magnesium supplies bio-active magnesium, calcium and 72 other trace minerals naturally obtained from red algae and seawater harvested in the cool, clean and pristine waters off the coast of Iceland. Marine vegetation is richer in minerals than vegetation from the land. The unique structure of marine minerals renders them easier to digest than rock and animal bone-based minerals. The unique matrix of 72 trace minerals work synergistically together to give a powerful boost to magnesium’s bioactivity. Each daily serving supplies 500 mg of magnesium in vegan capsules.

Self-care for combating stress:
In a stress response the sympathetic nervous system gets activated and the body produces a cascade of hormones, namely cortisol and adrenalin. It is sometimes called a ‘fight or flight’ response. This manifests in physical symptoms such as tension, anxiety and knotted muscles which have a negative effect on your mental and physical wellbeing.
For some people meditation or mindfulness may be helpful, and for others talking to a friend may help put things into perspective. Boosting endorphin levels through exercise can also send positive energy through the body and increase feelings of courage, peace and trust.
- Surround yourself with positivity and the people you love.
- Love yourself and take time to reflect.
- Practise good sleep hygiene by switching off computers and blue-light emitting devices at least one hour before bed.
