Although stress has been a part of life since the dawn of time - and was useful in protecting our Homo sapien ancestors from danger - it is now recognised as being one of the main health problems we face, and affects 9 out of every 10 people in France. 
From a biological perspective, stress is defined as being the range of responses mobilised by the body to enable it to adapt to pressures generated by its environment. Since stress is a normal response to a stressor, it is not harmful so long as it occurs occasionally. However, long-term stress may have significant physical and mental consequences.
A micronutritional and/or phytotherapeutic approach has proven to be valuable in combating the adverse effects of stress, spearheaded by the use of magnesium and rhodiola.

Stress is an adaptation reaction triggered by a situation experienced as being new, unexpected, hostile or threatening.
