The demands of modern life can leave many of us feeling overwhelmed and physicians all too often prescribe medications with significant side effects that make it difficult to function.
Sales of antidepressants continue to rise and industry experts are forecasting that sales of these anti-stress medications will reach almost $6 billion by 2017. According to the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) about one in every 10 Americans is taking a prescription antidepressant and among women from 40 to 50, the figure is one in four.
Antidepressants most widely prescribed come from a class of medications known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and include well-known antidepressants such as Prozac, Paxil and Zoloft.
Kava is a root that is best known for its relaxing qualities and has been used as a ceremonial beverage in the Pacific Islands for hundreds of years. Kava is said to produce a feeling of relaxation, elevate mood, wellbeing and contentment, and several studies have found that kava may be useful in the treatment of anxiety, insomnia and related nervous disorders.
1Hour BreakTM, a new product that just hit the market blends kava with lobelia, a muscle relaxant found to reduce levels of adrenaline and relieve tension, passionflower, known for its calming properties and as a sleep aid and lemon balm, which relieves pain and headaches. This convenient spray is formulated to relieve anxiety, stress and panic attacks in a safe and effective all natural sublingual spray.
Vu Nguyen, co-founder of 1Hour BreakTM says, “The uniqueness of our blend is that these herbs all work in harmony to alleviate stress and anxiety instantly.”
According to Allison Nguyen, a Registered Nurse, “I see people coming in all the time with stress and anxiety and a lot of people are on medications and are addicted to them.”
Many health experts agree that natural therapies can be very effective, especially when combined with a healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced non-processed diet, adequate rest and regular exercise.
With millions of Americans suffering from stress, anxiety, chronic insomnia and a host of other sleep disorders, 1Hour BreakTM offers an all-natural alternative and more holistic approach, that is effective, safe and convenient.
