INCREASING YOUR VITAMIN B INTAKE COULD SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE WORK-RELATED STRESS –
a clinical trial conducted at Swinburne University of Technology has shown…
The results of the three-month trial, where participants were given a course of either high dose vitamin B supplements (Blackmores Executive B Stress Formula) or a placebo, have been accepted for publication in the journal Human Psychopharmacology.
According to study leader Professor Con Stough, at the beginning of the trial the researchers assessed sixty participants against factors such as personality, work demands, mood, anxiety and
strain, and then re-evaluated them at 30 and 90 days.
“At the end of the three-month period, those in the Vitamin B group reported much lower levels of work stress than they did at the beginning of the trial,” he said. “In fact, participants experienced an almost 20 per cent improvement in stress levels.
“On the other hand, those in the placebo group showed no significant change.”
