WINNIPEG – If you’re feeling stressed at work, you’re not alone.
The Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA) conducted a national study and found that about 60 per cent of Canadians said they are stressed at work.
“This stress is unfortunately negatively affecting their health and other areas of their lives,” CHFA nutritionist Michelle Book said.
Book recommends that people take probiotics to help with anxiety and stress.
“Perhaps a supplement, making sure that we’re keeping that good gut bacteria in check will help manage the stress,” Book said.
When it comes to vitamins, both B complex vitamins and magnesium can also help round out nutritional deficiencies from stress.
Book also said moving around at work is important, even if your job requires sitting all day.
“We hear a lot that sitting is the new smoking,” Book said. “If it’s going for a walk at lunch or having a standing meeting where everyone actually gets up.”
