ADRENALS Stress Relief
What is it? RESET NUTRITION ADRENAL is a blend of herbs designed to bring your cortisol levels back into balance. With our busy lifestyles and our dependence on caffeine, it is very easy to shift the balance of cortisol production from that which is necessary to that which is going to send you to an early grave. Cortisol is essential for survival, helping to provide fast energy in times of stress. Our bodies however were not designed to be stressed all day (21st century lifestyle) and the extra cortisol can wreak havoc on our nervous and immune systems. RESET NUTRITION ADRENAL is designed to bring our cortisol levels back into balance for optimal health.
Who Should take it? Most people in the western world over the age of 15, unless you are a monk and only know stress as a concept. Here are just a few of the circumstances that may benefit from improved Adrenal function
- Poor sleep, cortisol should be naturally high in the morning to help wake you up and get you out foraging for breakfast. Cortisol should also be low at night to allow you to sleep. A lot of people’s bodies run the opposite pattern resulting in poor sleep and low energy.
- Over-worked and/or over stressed. The complexity and uncertainty of 21st century living does not look to be easing up any time soon. Through in family life and relationships and stress begins to build up.
- Contest preparation and sport. Getting ready for a big sporting event usually requires hours of dedicated exercise as well as a strict dieting regime. High Cortisol levels here can result in loss of muscle mass, impaired recovery and reduced strength/performance.
Add to this list excessive inflammation, allergies and chronic pain just to name a few.
What does it do? Bring Cortisol back into healthy ranges. Cortisol is essential for survival but like most things there is a Goldilocks zone we need to stay within to ensure optimal health along with great sporting performance. RESET NUTRITION ADRENAL uses a combination of tried and true herbal extracts to achieve this balance.
Ashwaghanda is a herb that has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine to reduce inflammation, reduce cortisol levels and relieve stress and anxiety.
Curcumin has several benefits to health including anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant capabilities. Promising research is showing Curcumin as a powerful tool in treating Alzheimer’s and other neurological disorders.
Holy Basil is another herb that is used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat depression and anxiety. It is also used to treat Ulcers, which probably ties in with the anxiety reducing effects. Holy Basil can be useful with joints too….too much cortisol is not a good thing.
L-Theanine is an amino acid found in green tea that may improve sleep quality, improve mental clarity and reduce anxiety.
