Stress triggers a combination of signals from both hormones and nerves. These signals cause your adrenal glands to release hormones, including adrenaline and cortisol.
The result is an increase in heart rate and energy as part of the fight-or-flight response. It’s your body’s way of preparing itself for potentially dangerous or harmful situations.
Cortisol also helps to limit any functions that aren’t essential in a fight-or-flight situation. Once the threat passes, your hormones return to their usual levels. This whole process can be a lifesaver.
But when you’re under constant stress, this response doesn’t always turn off.
Long-term exposure to cortisol and other stress hormones can wreak havoc on almost all of your body’s processes, increasing your risk of many health issues, from heart disease and obesity to anxiety and depression.
The Be Calm Kit targets stress on many levels including adrenal support, amino acid therapy for anxiety and vitamins, minerals and adaptogens crucial to the body when faced with stress.
PS 150 Phosphatidylserine
PS 150 features 150 mg of non-soy, sunflower-sourced phosphatidylserine (PS) per capsule. Phosphatidylserine promotes healthy hormone levels by helping to normalize cortisol levels when the body is under stress.
PS also supports normal testosterone levels. During intense exercise (where cortisol levels can rise), the testosteroneto-cortisol ratio tends to fluctuate because high cortisol levels impair the production of testosterone. Thus, PS supplementation helps to promote a healthy hormonal balance for those undergoing rigorous exercise. It is important to note that not all levels of exercise increase cortisol levels, as mild to moderate exercise programs are touted for their stress-reducing effects.
Recommended Use: As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule at breakfast and one at bedtime.
