We all have stress in our lives. Modern life is stressful, with the sheer amount and pacing of demands on us, as well as all the information we have available to us to try to make the best decisions about how to respond to those demands, it’s hard not to be stressed on a daily basis.

Everybody has a different response when they’re stressed. But one common response is to drink alcohol. Although this is a common strategy, it’s not a good one, and it can actually make the situation worse. Here’s why NuCalm is a better approach to stress relief than alcohol.

NuCalm helps you stay healthy. It promotes your body’s natural healing mechanisms, and it includes nothing that your body doesn’t naturally produce.

Get Relaxed, Not Depressed

One of the key differences between these two approaches to stress relief is that alcohol is a nervous system depressant. It interferes with the way your brain naturally works, in a very nonspecific way. In the short term, alcohol can suppress your stress response, but this can come with long-term consequences if you lean on alcohol too much as a daily stress reliever. In the process of suppressing your stress response, alcohol can also suppress neurotransmitter functions that are critical for good mental health. That’s why long-term alcohol use can contribute to a person’s risk of depression and anxiety.

NuCalm, on the other hand, promotes natural, healthy brain function. It is a patented approach that precisely controls your autonomic nervous system, shutting down the body’s stress response without interfering with the healthy functions of the brain’s other systems. Over the long-term, you’ll actually see improved mental health rather than increased risk of depression or anxiety.

See the Solution Clearly

Another problem with using alcohol as stress relief is that it’s generally a method for just avoiding your problems. You aren’t stressed because you’re not aware of what’s bothering you  anymore. This may be good for occasional stress relief, but if you rely on this strategy regularly, you’ll find that the problems you were ignoring have just piled up because you haven’t been dealing with them.

But NuCalm actually helps you deal with the problems that are causing you stress. With NuCalm, you’ll eliminate the stress response, but your mind will actually be in better shape to deal with the problem. You’ll be more energized and more creative in your solutions to these problems. And solving these problems is what will really relieve your stress.

Stay Healthy

With all the stresses in your life, you don’t want to add health concerns to the list. But if you are using alcohol regularly to combat stress, you might just be doing that. In addition to its impact on your brain, alcohol is a toxin that harms your body, including your liver and kidneys. In addition, the calories in alcohol contribute to weight gain while the depressant effect can make it harder to exercise.

NuCalm helps you stay healthy. It promotes your body’s natural healing mechanisms, and it includes nothing that your body doesn’t naturally produce. It’s essentially a zero-calorie stress solution that not only helps you maintain your weight, it helps you exercise and stay fit.

Get Better Sleep

Many people think alcohol helps them sleep, but this is a misconception. Alcohol helps you fall asleep, but it can actually make it harder for you to stay asleep, and it definitely makes it harder for you to maintain quality, restorative REM sleep. You’ll wake up feeling worse than you did the day before, and you won’t be in a good state to deal with new stresses.

NuCalm, on the other hand, helps you sleep better. It prepares your body’s natural relaxation mechanisms so that you can fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, and get more restorative sleep each night. This will make you better prepared to take on whatever the new day offers.
