Cortisol Calm is a blend of herbal extracts, including Sensoril ashwagandha, rhodiola and magnolia, plus vitamin D and l-theanine - the bioactive compound originally found in green tea. Ashwagandha has an extensive, 4,000-year history of traditional use and is one of the most revered and widely used Ayurvedic herbs. Sensoril ashwagandha is a clinically researched form of the herb. Rhodiola has also been used in Herbal Medicine for hundreds of years to support cognitive function and as an adaptogen to help temporarily relieve symptoms of stress.
Stress Relief: Cortisol, released in response to stress, is mainly produced by the adrenal cortex. Intra-abdominal adipocytes also produce cortisol. Identified as an adaptogen through extensive research, rhodiola helps to temporarily relieve symptoms of stress (such as mental fatigue and sensation of weakness) by maintaining healthy adrenal cortisol activity. Recently, a double-blind crossover study examined the effect of rhodiola on mental performance in healthy physicians. The results suggest that rhodiola may help to moderate fatigue under stressful conditions and to support cognitive function, including mental focus and stamina. In a separate, double-blind, placebo-controlled pilot study, rhodiola provided support for physical and mental stress in students. Promoting the proper activity of neurotransmitters such as serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine plays a part in this herb's ability to support cognitive functioning, memory and attention. As stress may also decrease immune responses over time, vitamin D is included to help maintain immune function, including immune cell maturation, differentiation and migration.
