Adrenal Cortisol Support by Protocol for Life Balance is a botanical and nutritional blend formulated to naturally support a healthy adrenal stress response, sometimes referred to as the ''fight-or-flight'' response.
The adrenal glands help the body respond and adjust to physical, mental, and emotional stressors through the production of cortisol and other hormones. When stress becomes a part of everyday life, cortisol, blood sugar, and consequently appetite and body weight may be difficult to manage. Adrenal Cortisol Support combines nutritional factors such as Vitamin C, Pantothenic Acid, and Chromium Chelavite with Relora, a proprietary herbal combination, to support healthy adrenal function, normal cortisol levels, relieve stress, and stress-related eating.
