When Brad King began formulating the natural sleep aid which ended up becoming Ultimate Anti-Stress, he started with herbs with known calming and relaxing properties like Valerian root, which this still has. But he soon realized that in order to truly promote healthy sleep, he would also need address the biochemical effects of the stress experienced earlier in the day: both to help lower the residual levels of the stress hormone cortisol which stay in the system for quite some time after stressful events, and to help recharge the adrenal gland which produces that. Consequently, he also included two powerful, well-studied natural adaptogens, ashwagandha and rhodiola, to help balance cortisol levels and normalize the body's response to stress; plus extracts of cattle's adrenal glands to help rebuild ours; plus two major types of powerful antioxidants, quercetin and citrus bioflavonoids, because stress is associated with oxidative damage which can accelerate the aging process and impair the immune system.
When we're subject to chronic daily stress (whether from the demands of work or our studies, or from constantly worrying about our families or futures), our reserves of the neurotransmitter serotonin might get depleted, leading to negative moods or excessive anxiety, and the constantly elevated levels of the stress-hormone cortisol can also have an adverse impact on our adrenal glands and other systems. Some common symptoms of weakened adrenal function or adrenal exhaustion are: nervousness, irritability, chronic tiredness and fatigue, sleep disturbances, overeating and weight gain, and a rundown immune system.
