You're sitting waiting to go into a job interview. You feel scared, apprehensive and nervous but you also feel more alert, which gives you a kick of energy and makes you feel as if you'll impress the most disinterested interviewer.

In short, you're stressed, and your body has released adrenaline and cortisol to help you cope with what's about to come your way.

The upside is that this feeling of stress will often make you perform better, it's the 'nerves' that actors or performers refer to that gives their act an edge. Like most things though, too much can be bad for you.

How much is too much?

If a stressful situation isn't resolved your sleep may be affected, your energy will be consumed and you may start to feel an inability to cope as adrenaline and cortisol stop your body and mind taking time out to recover.

This feeling of stress can be even more acute in women, who naturally produce less serotonin (the 'stress relieving' hormone) than men.

How Boots Equilibrium can help

Boots Equilibrium is a natural way to help regulate your mood. Specifically engineered from milk, Boots Equilibrium's natural ingredient, called Lactium, is closely related to a peptide released by babies when being comforted that isn't produced in adults. We asked 6000 of our customers how they felt after using Boots Equlibrium and, after just seven days of taking Boots Equilibrium, 62% of people saw an improvement in managing their everyday stress levels and 71% felt more able to cope with the stresses and strains of everyday life.

Since it's natural, you don't even have to worry about any side effects and if you don't feel an improvement within seven days, you can claim your money back!*

The range consists of a capsule format and a comforting hot chocolate drink format that will help you get cosy in the coming winter months. Both options come as a 14-day supply and you only have to take the product as and when required.

*Money back guarantee is only available with seven day packs of Boots Equilibrium. Terms and conditions apply, see pack for details.
