4 Ingredients To Instantly Lower Stress Hormones & Improve Adrenals

Have More ENERGY & Better MEMORY

Did you know that an estimated 75-90% of visits to primary care physicians (your regular doctor) are related to the negative effects of stress?1

And I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, “stress kills” and you know what, it does!

Stress causes premature aging because it disrupts multiple biochemical pathways, including:

  1. cortisol production (a primary stress hormone)2
  2. adrenal production (a primary cause of fatigue)3
  3. pro-inflammatory enzyme production (a primary cause of disease)4 and
  4. neurotransmitter production (a primary cause of brain aging).5

Of course, you can’t stop stress… certainly not in today’s, fast-pace society.

However, if you want to be happier, feel younger … and for longevity and health reasons, you need to give your body specific nutrients to help manage and reduce “stress side-effects”.

There are many things you can do with your diet, exercise program and relaxation methods to help manage your stress.

However, today’s topic will focus on helping you achieve the fastest results with the least amount of effort by utilizing 4, clinically proven natural ingredients, that’ll instantly improve your stress hormones and adrenal function.

The end result and benefits for you are:

  • enhanced energy metabolism in your cells, memory, concentration, learning and word choice 6,7
  • reduced fatigue, stress hormones and tension by 26% 8
  • improvement in energy, sleep, relaxation healthy outlook and well-being 9

4 Best Ingredients For Lowering Stress

Bacopa extract (50% bacopa glycosides) is traditionally used to help support memory and concentration while easing stress and tension. It is thought to help nourish neurons, while restoring depleted synaptic activity and is one of Ayurveda’s most revered herbs for brain health.

NOTE: Make sure you only use the 50% extract (bacopa glycosides) because this is the most potent and what was used in the clinical studies.

Sensoril® Ashwagandha extract counters some of the oxidative damage generated by nervous tension and stress.10 Clinical trials have shown reduced levels of the stress hormone cortisol, by up to 26% while maintaining normal blood sugar levels and lipid profiles.11 Studies have also shown an improvement in energy, sleep, healthy outlook and well-being, as well as diminished fatigue.12

NOTE: There are many varieties of Ashwagandha Extract. The most potent form, that’s clinically proven and patented is Sensoril® version. It has the highest extract (32% oligosaccharides, 10% withanolide glycoside conjugates) and the correct ratios.

Sharp-PS® Green Phosphatidylserine (Soy Free) is required for normal cellular structure and function. Brain tissues are especially rich in phosphatidylserine (PS), but aging causes a decline in the PS content of cells throughout the body. Research has shown that in addition to improving neural/brain function, PS enhances energy metabolism in all cells, memory, concentration, learning and word choice.13,14

Another major benefit to using PS is that it significantly improves cortisol levels, resulting in a more relaxed state.4,1

NOTE:This is one of my favorite ingredients. It’s very powerful. I suggest the “soy free” version and the clinically researched one being Sharp-PS®

N-Acetyl Tyrosine is an amino acid that can be converted in the brain and in the adrenal glands to dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine (adrenaline) hormones that are depleted by stress, overwork and certain drugs. By replenishing norepinephrine in the brain, mental energy levels will improve – as well physical stamina.

NOTE: I suggest using the N-Acetyl version of Tyrosine because it’s more stable and soluble, thus resulting in greater bioavailability and more benefits at a lower dosage.

The Best Combination That’s Clinically Proven

Now, I don’t recommend you take each of these ingredients individually because it’s time consuming, not convenient and becomes expensive over time.

However, the good news is that if you want to increase your energy levels, mood, cognition, memory and physical stamina by optimizing your youthful hormones and neurotransmitters such as dopamine, stress hormones, ATP, and mitochondria, I suggest using one of my favorite all-natural solution called Body-Brain Energy.

Now, I recommend Body-Brain Energy because it already combines these 4 ingredients with other, clinically proven ingredients…. at the correct extract AND dosage amount.

This is what I personally use for myself, my family, clients, patients and even my professional athletes.
