Integrative Therapeutics Cortisol Manager is a dietary supplement for healthy cortisol level support. Cortisol Manager is formulated to help support normal cortisol levels. In response to stress, the body increases levels of cortisol. For a short time this is very helpful but over time, increased cortisol interrupts basic health patterns. Cortisol, often referred to as the “stress hormone,” is produced by the adrenal cortex in response to signals from the hypothalamus and pituitary gland, as part of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. Upon exposure to acute stressors, cortisol secretion can generally help maintain homeostasis in the body. Because of its central role as a “first responder” and its capability to modulate multiple critical physiological functions, cortisol is often seen as the bridge between stress and its health consequences. Variations of cortisol secretion can be an indicator of how well a body is coping with stress. Cortisol production is generally at its peak in the early hours of the morning and then gradually declines over the course of the day. Cortisol Manager works to support relaxation, reduce fatigue, and maintain healthy levels of cortisol in the body.
Recommended usage: Take 1 tablet before bedtime, or as recommended by your healthcare professional. Increase to 2 tablets during times of high stress. Safe for use every night.

Yes, Marsha it should not stress your kidney. I wouldn't be too concerned. So of the ingredients in it, like ashwagandha can actually be beneficial to the kidneys.
But I always recommend running it by your physician!

Can I ask how Cortisol Manager, by Integrative Therapeutics, differs from their Adrenal Complex and HPA Adapt?
HPA Adapt and Cortisol Manager or usually recommended for high cortisol or early adrenal fatigue. Cortivive and Sleep Reset are for low cortisol or late stage adrenal fatigue. All four products are excellent for adrenal issues!
