"Chronic stress impacts mitochondrial function and may contribute to anxiety disorders." Published September 26 2019
Mitochondrial differences were observed in the brain cells of stressed mice when compared to non stressed mice.
One of the most effective ways to combat stress is sauna therapy.
"Heat stress raises Brain Derived Neurotropic Factor, promoting the growth of new neurons, modulating neuronal plasticity and ameliorates anxiety and depression from stressful events"
Another large scale study showed that men who use the sauna more 4-7x per week for more than 20 minutes had a 40% reduction in all cause mortality.
