Is it Stress?
Xooma Worldwide - Last edited 14 March - 4-minute read
You may have heard that a little stress can be a good thing and a motivator. Is it still a good thing if it becomes a way of life?
Stress is how your body reacts to certain situations, which has been referred to as the “fight or flight syndrome.” However, modern life presents differently than thousands of years ago when you faced a life-threatening situation and needed to act quickly. The “fight or flight” response is immediate in reacting or running, and activates your adrenaline. Stress that is mild and short-lived is one thing. Chronic long-term stress, and overworked adrenal glands, over time can affect your physical and mental health.*
Cardiac-related challenges are often referred to as the “silent killer.” If long-term stress can lead to some of these conditions, then is stress really the “silent killer?”
You are probably familiar with some external symptoms of stress. However, how do you know what is really happening inside your body, which you could call ‘internal’ symptoms?
There are many outward signs of stress on the body: anxiety, depression, headaches/migraines, heartburn, weight gain/weight loss.
Gut health and cardiac function are just two areas that can be affected by stress. Gut health is responsible for approximately 70% of your immune system and 90% of your serotonin. Research has also revealed a connection between psychological stress and cardiovascular disease.*
It’s pretty clear that stress isn’t something that’s generally going to decrease, especially given our busy modern lives. Sometimes even changing your surroundings can change your state! Here are some ways you can include stress-reducing activities in your daily life.
Breathe Some people unknowingly hold their breath when they are under stress. Be mindful of your breathing, and take slow deep breaths often.
Move Your body was meant to move. Low impact exercises include walking, Yoga and Tai Chi. Swimming uses many muscles. There are lots of sports to choose from, both indoor and outdoor. Here is a wonderful free tool to discover what works best for you: “Be Active Your Way Widget.” https://bit.ly/2NeNg70
Eat restorative foods You probably know what’s coming…. more leafy greens, fresh vegetables and fruits, natural grains and lean protein. What you eat has a direct impact not just on your waistline but also your brain function and your mood. If you’re not sure where to begin, here is another great resource: “Heart-Healthy Foods: Shopping List.” https://bit.ly/1pGzaOy
Seek balance Build balance into your schedule, such as quiet time, meditation, and time away from the television, computer and other technical devices.
Xooma Products can help support you
Through observing the impact of stress on two main areas of the body – gut health and cardiac health – here’s how Xooma’s products can help!
Xooma Products that support Gut Health include X2O (item #8025), Assimilator (item #1118), and Probiotix (item 3901)
X2O™ is the foundational product. It works synergistically while revitalizing, mineralizing and alkalizing. There are two targeted products in Xooma’s line with proprietary and trademarked ingredients that support gut health.
Assimilator™ Taking care of your gut begins with your digestive system. Assimilator is referred to as “The Missing Ingredient” in our modern diet. Many foods you consume no longer contain enzymes, which aid the absorption of nutrients and can improve digestion.
Probiotix™ Probiotics are vital for your overall gut health. Xooma’s Probiotix formula supports ideal levels of GOOD gut bacteria for a healthy digestive system and strong immune system.
Xooma Products that can help support Heart health include Omega 3/75 (item 1101) and KardiaXyme (item 2801)
Knowing how important it is to take care of your physical health, some of the recommendations earlier in this article help build health through exercising your heart muscle. Xooma’s products can also help support improved cardiac functioning.*
KardiaXyme™ is a unique blend of marine algae and scientifically shown to reduce inflammation, especially important with the heart. Xooma Members have also experienced increased ‘good’ cholesterol and decreased ‘bad’ cholesterol.
Omega 3/75™ is an ultra-pure formula that contains a high ratio of EPA & DHA (Essential Fatty Acids), and cardiac benefits are widely-recognized.
Include stress-reducing activities in your daily life, eat restorative foods, and use Xooma’s targeted supplements. Then you are putting into practice ‘overcoming stress’!

National Diabetes Awareness Month
November is here already. And besides celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States, there is another national awareness focus. It’s Diabetes Awareness Month.
While numbers of diabetic and pre-diabetic cases are still on the rise, there is good news. The vast majority of diabetic cases are preventable.
Did you know that approximately 95% of diabetes cases are Type II? That means they are preventable through lifestyle changes. Lifestyle changes include modifying your diet. But another change is incorporating targeted supplements with scientifically-researched ingredients, including several that Xooma offers.
We have heard from many Members how they have either reduced or eliminated the need for prescription medication after changing their lifestyle and incorporating Xooma’s products.
Changing lifestyle habits
Changing lifestyle habits is an important component in managing blood sugar.
Modifying your eating habits includes eating foods that are low-glycemic and also alkaline. Another important component in managing blood sugar is combining proteins with carbs and other food groups. Many people can avoid lack of energy, mood changes, and spiked blood sugar levels merely by reducing carbs and sugar, and then combining proper protein with other foods. Make sure you have nuts and other low carb / high protein snacks handy. Xooma’s MetaboWize Protein Fiber Shake is a great high-protein and low-carb solution you can incorporate with other foods or simply as a meal replacement.
Targeted Xooma products
Xooma has over 30 health and wellness products that contain scientifically-researched and trademarked ingredients. There are four products in particular that contain ingredients that can assist with blood sugar support: Assimilator™, Berry Balance™ (including Chromate), Omega 3/75™ and X2O™.
Assimilator is formulated with several enzymes that support absorption of vital nutrients.
Berry Balance contains the trademarked version of chromium, Chromate®, that research has shown to help balance blood sugar levels, along with a proprietary blend of multi-berry extracts that offer significant antioxidant support.
Omega 3/75 consists of pure Omega 3 fish oils, or EFAs, Essential Fatty Acids offering cardiovascular and other health benefits.
