How To Order

SUPPORTS BALANCED CORTISOL & HEALTHY STRESS RESPONSE*

The ingredients in Cortisol Manager support healthy cortisol levels.* Cortisol is one of the most important hormones involved in the adaptation process. By supporting balanced cortisol and a healthy stress response, Cortisol Manager also promotes relaxation to support restful sleep.*

THE ROLE OF CORTISOL IN TIMES OF STRESS

Cortisol is a hormone produced in the adrenal cortex that is released during times of stress. Variations in cortisol secretion can indicate how well the body is coping with stress. Cortisol homeostasis is typically characterized by peak secretion during the early morning hours with a gradual decline throughout the day. Because of its central role as a key stress hormone, cortisol is often thought of as a bridge between stress and its health impact.

WITH HERBAL INGREDIENTS

The ingredients in Cortisol Manager help support a balanced, adaptive cortisol response to stress.* Cortisol Manager contains a stress-reducing proprietary blend of Sensoril® brand ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) and Suntheanine™ brand L-theanine.* A proprietary blend of Magnolia (Magnolia officinalis) and epimedium (Epimedium koreanum), as well as phosphatidylserine from soy lecithin are included in Cortisol Manager.

A 2008 placebo-controlled clinical trial showed that Sensoril® ashwagandha significantly reduced serum cortisol levels and helped manage stress compared to placebo, in subjects experiencing higher levels of stress.*1 A 2018 placebo-controlled clinical trial showed that a single intake of Suntheanine™ L-theanine significantly increased alpha brain wave activity in subjects compared to their placebo counterparts.*2 Alpha brain wave activity is associated with a more relaxed mental state.*2

Together the ingredients in Cortisol Manager help support relaxation, to promote restful sleep.* They also help stabilize the stress hormone cortisol to further support a healthy stress response.*

FAQs

  • A. Though typically used within the early-stage of the stress response, Cortisol Manager can be used in the mid and late stages – particularly within the mid-stage when additional energy and stress support is needed.* The HPA Optimization program highlights key nutrient support that is appropriate for the mid and late stages, such as the adaptogenic herbal combination of HPA Adapt, for mid-stage, and CortiVive for late stage, which supports healthy cortisol production and healthy adrenal cortex function.

  • A. No, not when used properly. Research has shown that ashwagandha offers safe and effective support for the body during times of stress.* Unfortunately, there are some sources indicating that all plants of the Solanaceae or nightshade family (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, and ashwagandha, included) should be avoided because of their potential to reduce immune system function. However, many of these same plants and herbs have been used as food staples and medicines for thousands of years. These compounds, found in green part of the vegetables, may cause adverse effects in humans when taken at unrealistically high levels.
