When feeling stressed, the body goes into a ‘fight or flight’ response and secretes increased amounts of stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline. Stress hormones are released through the HPA axis (a central hormone pathway), which includes the hypothalamus, the pituitary gland, and the adrenal glands.
Adrenal fatigue occurs when the adrenal glands are overworked by long term stress (physical and mental). As a result, symptoms present such as tiredness, insomnia, brain fog and cravings for certain foods.
Busy and demanding lifestyles can create chronic, long-term stress that may tax the HPA axis and negatively affect the stress-response system. If cortisol levels remain elevated for long periods of time, the adrenal glands can fatigue. The botanical extracts in Cortisol Management have demonstrated efficacy in supporting a healthy HPA axis and balancing stress hormone levels.
Relora, a combination of two Chinese tree barks known for stress management, relaxation and improved mood. Relora has also been shown to help control stress related eating.
