In an era of sensory and schedule overload, environmental disruption, and the state of the current world, stress is unavoidable, rampant, and infiltrates into our everyday lives.
Under normal conditions, our bodies produce a surge of cortisol, otherwise known as “the stress hormone” —that benefits and protects us, but ideally only do so infrequently. However, for many women in today’s world, that cortisol surge never turns off, creating chronic anxiety, burnout, and fatigue.
Constant stress can have profound effects on our hormones and digestive health, creating excess inflammation, bloating, poor sleeping patterns, cognitive decline, brain fog, and compromised immunity. In addition, as stress accelerates in the body, it generates free radicals, toxins and increases oxidative stress,which depletes vital nutrients and inevitably leads to premature aging.
Juna’s co-founders Jewel Zimmer and Taylor Lamb elaborate on how stress can affect a woman’s overall well-being.
Jewel, CEO and formulator of Juna, shares, “Most of us don’tknow how to cope with stress these days because it’s attacking us from all angles. It’s not just overwhelming; it’s more complex than that. As the world turns and our stress and stressors continue to evolve, we must evolve with them. The best way to do this is to help our bodies maintain a state of homeostasis so that they can constantly regulate and restore”.
Taylor, CMO of Juna, explained, “We created Juna to help reduce the daily stress we all go through by providing plant-based formulas that improve sleep, help you be more productive,detox, quiet anxiety, help balance our moods and ultimately reach that place of optimal homeostasis.”
If you are dealing with stress, it helps to know that you aren’t alone. But, more importantly, there is an ecosystem of options out there to help. Juna was created by women for women to give busy mothers and or career women a way to optimize their every day.
To help mediate everyday overwhelm and stress, sleep better, be more productive, and make sure that you can show up as the best version of yourself every day, both at work and home with science-backed, plant-powered solutions you can trust.
