Busy at Year-End Leading to Quick Illness? Chew This Candy for a Solution

Certain professions commonly experience extraordinary busyness towards the year's end. These include auditors, tour and ticketing staff, IT support, and journalists. They often have to work hard because there's a high demand from customers or clients that needs to be met by the year's end.

The high intensity often makes workers forget about time and neglect their health. Working overtime at the end of the year is a norm for some people. Hence, it's no surprise if the busyness at work brings about illnesses.

According to the ADP Research Institute, 23 percent of respondents work overtime at least once a week. Meanwhile, 29 percent of respondents admitted to working overtime more than twice a week. Furthermore, 19 percent of respondents work overtime almost every day.

Meanwhile, 56 percent feel pressure, and 53 percent frequently work overtime.

It shows that, on average, people working overtime experience relatively high pressure. If left unchecked, this condition can lead to stress, making people susceptible to illnesses due to weakened immunity.

Especially during the rainy season like now, when everyone should protect themselves to avoid getting wet, which could potentially cause sickness. Moreover, if exposed to rain when the immune system is weak due to working tirelessly, the body could get sick instantly.

Looking at this, a strong contributing factor is stress. So, how do we prevent it?

One method involves consuming candy. According to the journal article titled 'Chewing Gum and Stress Reduction' by Andrew P. Smith, several studies indicate that chewing gum can be a solution for reducing stress.

This approach can be particularly beneficial, especially considering the predicted rise in the trend of candy gummy consumption.


According to Grand View Research, the global gummy market was valued at USD 21.40 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.8% from 2022 to 2030

In this case, the candy consumed should contain beneficial ingredients for the body, namely those containing GABA.

Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a naturally active nonprotein amino acid. GABA is widespread, found in the mammalian nervous system, botanical sources such as tomatoes, grapes, potatoes, tea, and fermented foods like kimchi and germinated brown rice, which are rich in GABA.

Additionally, GABA is a crucial neurotransmitter found extensively in the central nervous system. It acts as a critical calming agent, helping to alleviate stress and anxiety.

For those interested in stress-relief gummies containing GABA, here is the formulation: Glucose syrup, isomalt, water, pear juice, apple juice, guar gum, xanthan gum, acidulant, pectin, GABA, beeswax, vegetable oil, cherry flavor, carmine.
