Anxiety Triggers, Stress, and the BDNF Gene

Written by Joe Cohen, BS | Last updated:

If you’ve ever been overwhelmed by worry or procrastinated on a task, then you may have experienced anxiety.

Anxiety can cause less motivation, less focus, and more fatigue.

Performance at work or going to the gym can be daily triggers for anxiety.

These “micro” moments of anxiety are like dominoes – stacking up one by one and when one falls, everything in its path is knocked down.

Anxiety may even lead to sleep disturbances, gut disorders, and pain.

But anxiety doesn’t have to permanently disrupt your life.

The right strategies can take you from feeling stressed and uncertain to at ease and confident.

Uncovering the root cause of anxiety is the first step in getting strategies that work.

What is the root cause of anxiety?

Your genes can actually play a significant role in the way you experience anxiety.

With this report, you can find out your own genetic likelihood of anxiety!
