Especially critical for busy working mothers that exercise, long distance athletes, and HIIT athletes.
Brings down cortisol levels to normal range faster and best taken post exercise or post stressful work days.
Cortisol is an essential hormone to counter stress. Many individuals are doing things to keep cortisol too high for too long, like lots of caffeine and stress, which over time makes it more difficult to bring down cortisol levels.
Taken regularly for a while the body will regulate the cortisol levels faster ultimately leading to burning fat. When cortisol is high this is why long distance athletes and mothers will have trouble burning fat. High Cortisol means fat retention.
Supporting healthy cortisol levels has emerged as an essential strategy
for supporting adrenal function. The formulation strategy associated with
this product is one of identifying the most effective compounds to provide
the necessary degree of support for cortisol balance and include the
most clinically relevant dose of those ingredients.
About the Ingredients:
Sensoril® Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), Root & Leaf Extract:
Sensoril® supports stress reduction, energy, mental acuity and concen-
tration. It also helps to promote restful sleep. It is known as an adapto-
gen, a substance considered to help the body adapt to stress, and has
been used in multiple clinical trials. This formula’s high concentration of
Sensoril® makes it the ideal choice for adaptogenic support.*
ETASTM (Proprietary extract of Asparagus officinalis):
ETASTM is a proprietary ingredient derived from the tough lower portion
of asparagus stalks. It supports our body’s ability to increase production
of HSP70, a protein with varied functions, including the ability to support
cell integrity, excitatory/inhibitory cytokine balance, and oxidative
Double-blind, placebo-controlled research has shown that ETASTM
effectively supports sleep quality1 and cognitive performance2, as well
as healthy heart rate variability, which can be directly tied to cortisol
levels3.* It also supports a healthy stress response4.*
Rhodiola rosea Root Extract (standardized to 3% rosavins
and 1% salidrosides):
Rhodiola rosea Root Extract provides support for a variety of mecha-
nisms that involve the stress response.* It interacts with the HPA system,
which supports the production and secretion of cortisol, protein kinases
p-JNK, nitric oxide, and defense mechanism proteins such as heat shock
Magnolia officinalis Bark Extract helps support normal levels of the
cortisol and DHEA hormones produced by the body, thereby promoting
stress management.* It works by binding to stress receptors in the
nervous system to promote relaxation and feelings of well being.*
Importantly, it ignores receptors associated with sedation.*
