An article was published in Psychology Today emphasizing the role of Vitamin C in relieving stress.
The article goes on saying that Vitamin C helps reduce both physical and psychological effect of stress.
The researcher performed an experiment on 120 people.These people were subjected to a stress-related task.Half of them were given 1000 mg of Vitamin C while performing the task and the rest were asked to perform without the intake of Vitamin C.
The result was astonishing.Individuals with Vitamin C intake were found to have a manageable level of stress hormone cortisol whereas others had a high level of blood pressure and cortisol.

                     [All you need to know about Vitamin C and NEM Stress Response]

An article was published on Dr. Lam Coaching which talks in-depth about the relationship between Vitamin C and NEM Stress Response.
The NeuroEndoMetabolic(NEM) Stress Response System is a collection of organs that deal with the day-to-day stress and its side-effects on our body.The NEM  acts as a shield against the stress.We all the certain stress level and we all have our own stress-management techniques but our system in a healthy state is able to neutralize the stress hormones without getting exhausted.
In short, our body is capable enough to manage a certain level of stress.The problem starts when the stress level increases exponentially.Initially, NEM circuit tries to fight with high-stress level but over a long run the circuit becomes weak and a large amount of stress hormones dominates the entire NEM system leading to deteriorating of the mental condition.

Here comes Vitamin C in to play.It helps the NEM to fight against the stress hormone for a longer duration.Vitamin C also helps boost adrenal gland function and is one of the building blocks of cortisol.
