Manage Your Stress This Holiday Season

Ready or not it’s time to start talking about the holidays. After a year(s) of uncertainty and not seeing family, I hope this year brings the renewal of holiday traditions. If your traditions are anything like mine, that means stress is a tradition as well. This is a wonderful time to talk about our two most popular supplements to help our body deal with the stressors of our life.

Adaptocrine (Apex Energetics) is a product designed to support both mental and physiological stress during times of temporary stress. This product also supports the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis function—a very long list of words that can be described much more simply as stress function. The hypothalamus and pituitary are in your brainstem (the part that connects your brain and your spinal cord) while the adrenal glands are located above your kidneys. Through neuroendocrine mechanisms, these three organs regulate metabolism, immune response, and most importantly for our discussion here, the autonomic nervous system.

Increased stress load occurs every year as we are able to consume more information quicker and easier. It becomes easier to argue with someone on social media, and school, hobbies, and the sporting events get busier and busier for our children. Eventually, our body either runs out of messengers to tell our body to adapt to stress or it loses its ability to functionally release Cortisol (more to come later). Either way, we lose the ability to adapt to all the stresses in our life and we become run down.

Cortisol is the primary stress hormone that triggers the cascade of physiological events that need to happen to manage stress. If we are constantly stressed, then a mechanism very similar to diabetes occurs. Our body no longer secretes Cortisol because it has become “numb” to the barrage of signals it has received asking for the stress hormone.

Cortisol Pro (Tonic Sea) works directly on the body’s release, signaling, and management of Cortisol levels. With our levels constantly elevated, we lose sleep, gain weight, and have a lower mood. Again, our body loses its ability to utilize this hormone. By targeting Cortisol and the adrenal glands when a body becomes stressed and calls for Cortisol to be released, the physiological events that need to happen can happen and our body is able to respond to stress in the healthy way that God intended.

To your health,
Your family’s in good hands with our family.
