STRESS IS EVERYWHERE.
EVEN THE WORD 'STRESS' IS STRESSFUL.
And if we don’t do anything about it, stress will begin to affect many aspects of our lives, from work (deadlines!) to general health (heart attacks, headaches, pains, ulcers, libido, and depression). No. 8 can calm you down and help you take life in stride by boosting stress stamina, increasing energy, and providing a calmative effect. Read on to find out more.
Harrington’s No. 8 for stress is a powerful formula to help you relax. It’s an all-natural formula of scientifically enhanced ingredients designed to reduce your stress levels without the use of unbalancing chemicals, stupefying sedatives like drugs and alcohol, or addictive pharmaceutical opioids.

Now, let's translate those ingredients for you.
Siberian Ginseng has been studied to improve stamina, resistance to stress, sleep quality, general mood, depression, and fatigue reduction. It has also been shown to help withstand heat, cold, infection, exhaustion, radiation, and other physical stressors.
It’s one of the world’s best adaptogens, which are special herbal medicines that help us adapt better to stressful situations.
Ashwagandha (aka Withania Somniferum), a key component of Ayurvedic medicine, is another famous adaptogen and has long been used to treat stress, fatigue, and low energy.
One of its strengths is to help relieve sleep issues related to stress.
Its latin name, Somniferum, means ‘a drug to induce sleep’. A good rule of thumb: if the clinical indication is in the Latin name, you should pay attention!
Finally, Kava Kava has been utilized in Polynesian cultures as a relaxant and a defence against anxiety.
Its calming effects have been shown to produce brain wave changes similar to the effects of drugs like valium and other anti-anxiety medications, without decreasing mental sharpness. It has also been used for sleeplessness due to stress, improving deep sleep without grogginess, and for restless legs and muscle spasms.
Together, these ingredients create a strong formula that battles stress and helps you relax.
And when combined with some good exercise, deep breathing, meditation, yoga, and cognitive behavioural therapy, your troubles just might disappear…
