Commonly known as the “stress hormone,” cortisol provides energy, increases memory function, lowers sensitivity to pain, and limits harmful inflammation during periods of stress. However, an excessive amount of cortisol in the bloodstream may lead to chronic stress, resulting in negative effects such as weight gain, suppressed immune function, high blood pressure, fatigue, insomnia, reliance on stimulants, cravings for carbohydrates or sugars, poor immune function and diabetes. It is important to keep cortisol levels healthy and under control.
If muscle tension, headache or increased heart rate plague you in tense situations, our Stress Complex supports your body in getting balanced again. This formula supports the body’s natural stress-fighting abilities and supports proper function of the adrenal cortex. This cortex is located on the outer portion of the adrenal gland and secretes essential hormones that aid in immune function. During short or long periods of stress, the adrenal cortex produces higher levels of cortisol, which helps the body respond positively to that stress.
Stress Complex has a blend of vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin C and citrus bioflavonoids, which support the body in balancing production and other important hormones secreted by the adrenal cortex, thereby supporting the body in returning to a relaxed state after incidents of stress.
