Cortisol Balance Fixes Your "Wired but Tired"

Cortisol Balance Fixes Your

Cortisol is a multi-purpose hormone made in the adrenal glands.  When it's excessively elevated, it can cause some unwanted symptoms. 

One of the most common sensations that people with high cortisol levels report, is a sensation of being “tired but wired”.  You feel exhausted, but your nervous system is revved up.  This is most often seen in the evening, after a particularly stressful day or exceptionally hard training effort.

Cortisol levels are supposed to come down in the evening hours, and be at their lowest through the night. When they’re too high, a person will have trouble sleeping through the night, and most commonly they’ll wake up in the early morning hours (3-4am) completely awake and unable to fall back asleep.

Cortisol Balance is the answer to elevated cortisol levels.  It contains clinically effective natural ingredients that support cortisol levels in a normal physiologic range.

Best Uses for Cortisol Balance:

  • ‘Tired but wired’ sensation

  • Adrenal fatigue

  • Insomnia - waking at 3-4am particularly

  • Inability to relax after a tough workout

  • Stress and anxiety

  • Restoring normal cortisol levels at nighttime

Here’s How it Works:

Healthy Cortisol BalanceCortisol Balance is made to lower elevated cortisol levels - especially when they’re temporarily elevated from a stressor, whether it’s mental/emotional or physical.  It works quickly, so your system can calm down and you can rest and recover.

Ashwagandha is a native herb to India.  It’s a well researched botanical that has been shown to directly lower cortisol levels. It also has a beneficial effect of limiting the effects of stress on dopamine receptors in the brain.  Additionally, users report feeling more relaxed after taking it.

Magnolia bark has anxiety decreasing effects on the brain, and it can also directly lower evening cortisol levels.

Holy basil is another native Indian herb and has been used for centuries as an anti-stress and adaptogenic herb in Ayurvedic medicine. It helps to relax the body and mind by reducing cortisol levels; it has similar actions to ashwagandha.

Phosphatidylserine is a compound found in cellular membranes, with the purpose of promoting healthy cellular communication.  Interestingly, phosphatidylserine works to balance the overall hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) system - meaning that it can limit the production of cortisol in stressful situations.  It’s also a great remedy for insomnia.

L-Theanine is an amino acid found primarily in tea.  It’s a popular relaxing and anti-anxiety remedy and can boost levels of serotonin and GABA.  It’s thought that the presence of this amino acid in tea is why it’s such a relaxing beverage!

5-HTP is a natural chemical precursor to tryptophan, a relaxing amino acid. 5-HTP can reduce anxiety, improve mood and help with sleep. It’s non-drowsy so it can be used during the day without making you sleepy.

Magnesium, Vitamin D3, B6 (Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate, Pyridoxine HCl), B12 (Methylcobalamin) and folinic acid are included in this formula because of their role in the HPA axis. B vitamins are heavily used by the adrenal glands; vitamin D supports normal cortisol levels, and magnesium supports balanced muscle and nerve function.

Cortisol Balance contains everything your body needs to support healthy adrenal gland function (where cortisol is produced), and these ingredients can lower elevated cortisol levels that result from stress on the body, so you can wind down and recover/sleep properly.
