A new study out of Rice University showed emotional stress linked to Type II diabetes. The study published in Psychoneuroendocrinology establishes a metabolic chain reaction that starts with low inhibition, aka attention control, which leaves a person vulnerable to tempting or distracting information, objects, thoughts or activities. Previous studies have shown that such vulnerability can lead to more frequent anxiety, and anxiety is known to activate a metabolic pathway responsible for the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, signaling proteins that include interleukin-6 (IL-6).
Once again stress is shown to be the root cause of another disease, in this case diabetes – which is strongly associated with obesity and heart disease. This is why stress management is the key to staying healthy, and using Gabatrol or GABA-MAX as part of that program is very effective at quickly reducing stress in under 15-20 minutes.
