Overview

Description

Adaptogens are unique class of herbal ingredients used to improve the health of your Adrenal system - which manages the body’s hormonal response to stress. By tonifying and rejuvenating the entire adrenal system, they promote the healthy regulation of cortisol the “stress hormone”.

Adaptogens work like a thermostat: they sense imbalances and naturally correct them. They can calm you down and boost your energy at the same time. They enable the body’s cells to access more energy and help the body utilize oxygen more efficiently. They’re called adaptogens because of their unique ability to “adapt” their function according to your body’s specific needs.

Easy Breezy
Great product-
Speedy and efficient service-
Thomas Spotts November 2, 2016
super calm
Great product have used it now for a few months! I don't wake up super anxious, I stay calm under pressure,and I feel like I am more focused. But this last purchase of the bottle a few of the capsules inside the bottle did break open. all in all a sup if you have anxiety or you are in a rut.
Heather August 10, 2016
Helped with anxiety
I had symptoms consistent with high cortisol and began taking this along with other lifestyle and supplement changes. I began taking in about 25 grams of protein in the morning via protein shake with very low sugar (5 grams or less), then having low carb lunch and snacks and moderate complex carbs at supper. I was also taking quality tuna oil pills and a Phosphatidylserine supplement. I do wish there was more information on how to play around with the dosage of this supplement. I found taking the recommended 6 pills per day was too high as I was having trouble falling asleep. Taking 2 at breakfast and 2 at lunch helps me for now and I think I may be able to taper off within a few months as I've responded faster to these than I expected.

Be well
Having taken this now for a month, I feel more balanced. Nothing earth shattering but I do feel a difference and plan to continue to take for another month. I like that it does not have added caffeine.
Sandra November 4, 2015
Regulates cortisol
My cortisol levels were out of balance and I was having trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. I'm starting to sleep through the night thanks to Adaptogens!
