One of the secrets to health, happiness, and enthusiasm is plain and simple. It's stress management. That is, helping to keep cortisol-the stress hormone produced by the adrenal glands-at a healthy level. Most of the time we do this involuntarily without even thinking about it. However, studies suggest that maintaining healthy cortisol levels helps manage stress levels. Cortisol Stress Soother contains ingredients which help maintain healthy cortisol levels, leading to reduced worry and anxiousness. The two researched ingredients in Cortisol Stress Soother, Relora and PharmaGABA, are non-habit forming and help you manage stress and anxiousness, leaving you feeling relaxed and focused. Relora is a blend of two all-natural ingredients: bark extracts from Magnolia officinalis and Phelodendron amurense. Both have been used ln traditional Chinese medicine for nearly 2,000 years. In a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study, individuals under moderate levels of perceived psychological stress supplemented with 500 mg of Relora (the amount in a daily dose of Cortisol Stress Soother) or a placebo twice a day over four weeks. Relora was shown to reduce cortisol levels and after four weeks and those taking Relora reported better mood, less tension and overall less stress. The other key ingredient is Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA), an amino acid that occurs naturally in many kinds of foods, especially fermented food products. This amino acid is also produced naturally in the brain where it acts as a neurotransmitter to foster communication between nerve cells. In a study measuring the effects of PharmGABA, researchers used an electroencephalogram (EEG) to monitor brain waves in 13 individuals before and 60 minutes after taking PharmGABA, water, or theanine (a compound in green tea with well-known relaxing effects). The results showed increased feelings of relaxation and decreased stress.
