Stress is considered to be at the root of 99% of all disease. While most people think mental/emotional stress as the sole cause of stress, the truth is, stress comes in many forms.
Although psychological stress is one of the most dominant in our world today, stress can manifest physiologically as well. Diet can cause stress, as well as intense exercise (cardio), lack of sleep, aging, a lack of good quality sun-light, and anything that impairs our cells ability to produce energy.
When any of these stressors occur chronically, our thyroid down regulates, increasing our reliance on adrenal stress hormones. While this is a helpful survival mechanism, over the long-term these hormones (like cortisol and adrenaline), can break down our tissues, accelerate aging and weaken our immunity system.
That's why today, we've formulated a special Tonic recipe to help take a load off your precious adrenals and thyroid.
Super Adrenal Tonic
Fortunately, there are plenty of traditionally and clinically proven herbs that can help us more efficiently cope with stress, while we address underlying causes.
For example, Ashwagandha KSM-66 is observed in trial to increase our resilience to stress in just 60 days. Cordyceps is known to lower cortisol, the classic stress hormone that ultimately burns out our thyroid and leads to crhonic fatigue. Then we have Rehmannia, a traditional adrenal tonic herb. 1
