Daily Calm Supplements a Natural Way to Corral Stress and Beat the Blues
During our journey through life, many of us will face sudden, unforeseeable challenges and pitfalls that can result in feelings of stress and anxiety. Let’s face it. As the world becomes more digitally and economically integrated, stress will likely become more prevalent in countries throughout the world, not just here at home.
Still, Americans take the global lead when it comes to being stressed and worried. In a recent Gallup report, which surveyed adults in 143 countries, 55 percent of Americans admitted to feeling stressed or worried during the day before they were polled. Stress levels were even higher among younger Americans (65 percent) between the ages of 15 to 49. Not surprisingly, Americans beat the global average (35 percent) by a whopping 20 percentage points.
High stress levels appear to be here to stay for the time being. However, there are lots of ways to mitigate the effects of stress from exercise and diet to prescribed medications and natural remedies, such as cannabidiol (CBD) ― shown in studies to provide benefits improving mood and stress levels. Supplements manufactured with a formula combining high-quality CBD, and other thoughtfully selected natural herbs, have been shown to provide a holistic way to reduce stress levels naturally. But before looking at solutions, let’s see how stress affects our health and well-being.
How Does Stress Affect my Health and Behavior?
Stress can have negative effects on your health and well-being because it often works silently in the background without you even knowing it. What you may think is illness to blame for headaches, insomnia, irritability, and low productivity at work can often be attributed to high stress levels.
Left unmanaged, stress can contribute to a number of serious health problems, such as obesity, immune disorders, diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease.

As if the usual stress triggers were not enough, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought with it unprecedented disruptions to how we live our everyday lives. According to a recent survey by mental health provider Ginger, nearly 7 out of 10 health professionals said that the COVID-19 pandemic is the most stressful time of their careers, resulting in lost productivity associated with the inability to focus at work.
Still, stress isn’t always triggered by unexpected bad news. Sometimes good things, like starting a new job, preparing for an upcoming wedding or baby, or moving to a new house can bring on stress. Regardless of its source, there are several ways to mitigate stress in your life. But how do you choose? Do you choose the option of home remedies, over-the-counter medicine, or prescribed medicine?
Prescribed Medications Versus Natural Remedies
There are lots of ways you can reduce stress. You could start by getting enough sleep at night, watching a funny movie, going for a walk or bike ride, or chatting with a friend on the phone. Sometimes, simple solutions work the best. However, for most people, beating stress often comes down to whether the solution involves home remedies, over-the-counter, or prescribed medicine.
According to recent government statistics, nearly 50 percent of Americans surveyed said they used at least one prescribed medicine in the past 30 days. However, some of the medications prescribed for anxiety, for example, may have unwelcome side effects, including drowsiness and dizziness. And although they tend to work rather quickly, they may have the potential for dependency.
Some over-the-counter medications meant to provide calming results, may be manufactured with a combination of vitamins, minerals, herbs and other ingredients that may or may not support de-stressing, depending on what they are. In addition, quality control may vary from one manufacturer to another.
Studies support the efficacy of supplements containing specific herbs, minerals and cannabidiol (CBD) derived from hemp plants as a natural way to combat specific wellness concerns, such as those brought on by stress.
How Can Oliver’s Harvest Daily Calm Supplements Help Deal With Stress?
CBD is a type of cannabinoid, a chemical found naturally in hemp and cannabis plants. As more research becomes available, it’s becoming clearer that CBD is showing promise regarding the ability to relieve anxiety and stress. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), another type of cannabinoid, CBD doesn’t cause any feelings of intoxication and won’t show up on a drug test.
Oliver’s Harvest Daily Calm Supplements are designed for specific conditions, such as stress and lack of sleep. Once ingested, these herbal supplements are absorbed by your liver where they create a more prolonged effect in your system over other delivery methods.
CBD acts as an extra supply of cannabinoids to support an extensive regulatory system called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). This vast system has CB1 and CB2 receptors found mostly in your central nervous system and is responsible for regulating functions such as sleep, inflammation, and stress. The natural ingredients in our Daily Calm supplements have been shown to enhance the overall effects of CBD, thereby helping support the performance of your ECS.
In addition to organic CBD extract, Oliver’s Harvest Daily Calm Supplements also contain vitamin B1, vitamin C, vitamin D3 and magnesium. Vitamin B1 has been shown to support healthy heart, brain and nervous system functions. Magnesium is the workhorse of minerals found in the human body, helping maintain healthy bones in addition to reducing the symptoms of depression.
Oliver’s Harvest Daily Calm Supplements also contain a proprietary blend of beneficial herbs, such as kava kava and valerian to name a few. Kava kava comes from various Pacific islands and has been consumed for thousands of years as a component of herbal medicine. It’s mostly known to support a state of calmness, relaxation and well-being without diminishing cognitive performance.
Valerian is a flowering plant native to Europe and Asia and known in traditional medicine mostly known for its ability to help people unable to sleep due to insomnia. 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is another beneficial amino acid found in Oliver’s Harvest Daily Calm Supplements.
5-HTP is an amino acid naturally produced in your body. It is thought to help with weight loss by increasing your feeling of “fullness” after a meal. However, it’s also thought to help alleviate symptoms of depression by influencing serotonin levels in the brain. Serotonin is one of the brain chemicals that when at normal levels, give us a feeling of balance and well-being.
If you decide to take Oliver’s Harvest Daily Calm Supplements, it’s recommended to take two pills per day. Because these are natural supplements, it may take two to three weeks to feel full benefits. Learn more about the potential benefits of Oliver’s Harvest CBD supplements here.
