Pure Encapsulations Cortisol Calm
offers support for stress, mood, and nerves. Cortisol is a hormone that flows into your bloodstream when you're feeling stressed out. It's created in your adrenal glands which are nestled near your kidneys and provides you with all of the resources you need in order to deal with stressful situations. The effects of cortisol can be helpful short-term; unfortunately continuously high levels of cortisol can cause negative effects. For example excess cortisol can cause wounds to heal more slowly and can also make you more prone to experiencing minor illnesses. It may also result in fat being deposited in the stomach area as opposed to other parts of your body. If you're highly sensitive to stress it's important for you to take steps to manage your stress levels. You can help yourself keep your cortisol levels in check by avoiding stress where possible and adopting stress management techniques such as exercise and deep breathing when you inevitably encounter them. Pure Encapsulations' Cortisol Calm Vegetable Capsules may help supplement these lifestyle measures and help promote normal levels of cortisol.
Recommended use: 1 capsule in the morning and 1 capsule in the evening with meals, or as directed by a healthcare professional.

**Uses For Cortisol Calm Supports Healthy Cortisol Production:
Cortisol, released in response to stress, is mainly produced by the adrenal cortex. Intra-abdominal adipocytes also produce cortisol. In a recent study, Sensoril ashwagandha extract promoted relaxation and maintained healthy cortisol and C-reactive protein levels. Subjects in this randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled study reported support for healthy sleep, positive mood and cognitive function. The effects were most pronounced for subjects taking 500 mg per day compared to lesser doses. Rhodiola and magnolia may also maintain healthy adrenal cortisol activity and offer support for stress, mood and emotional well-being. l-Theanine supports normal brain alpha-wave activity, helping calm the sympathetic nervous system for a relaxing effect. Recent research suggests that maintaining healthy vitamin D levels supports normal cortisol production within abdominal adipocytes.*
