Stress is the bane of modern-day living, the price we pay for the hectic lifestyle that is part and parcel of our urban existence. Stress, as is well known, has severe consequences including mental tension, anxiety, lack of sleep, high blood pressure, heart diseases, stomach ailments, impaired cognition, etc. Treating them with modern-day medicines has its own side effects, many of which only contribute to further problems. It is then not surprising that an increasing number of people around the world are turning to Ayurveda and its range of plant-based medicines, for help.

Stress related maladies are the primary focus of  Green Leaf, a venture of the Bhavnagar-based Ayurvedic products company Sheth Brothers.
