Any type of stressor -- whether physical or mental, activates a natural stress response in the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. Stress triggers the HPA axis and consists of three stages: alarm, resistance, and exhaustion. The fight or flight response releases cortisol from the adrenal glands, which initially provides the body with energy, but too much can overwhelm natural pathways causing damage. If stress continues, the body will enter the second phase to try support persistent exposure. This can lead to an imbalance of hormones throughout the body causing mental and physical fatigue, nervous tension, irritability, and poor memory. Adrenal Soothe supports the body's natural HPA response and reduces the harmful effects of excessive stress.
I initially tried to take these in the day and it made me pretty dizzy. I tried reducing it to 1 tablet and it was the same.
I did a bit of research (i have a certification in herbal medicine) and i think its the rhodiola as it brings blood pressure down and i have low ish blood pressure to start with.
Ive switched to taking them only in the evening and so far I am sleeping better. I guess i wont see the true impact of what it has done to my cortisol and dhea until i have been taking them for 3-6months and retest.
I have really noticed a difference and able to relax and sleep longer!
Sleeping better. Thank you!
I have been taking the adrenal soothe for the past month and this has been helping me sleep better. I don't wake up in the middle of the night anxious and worried as I used to frequently. I have a greater sense of balance and calmness. I take 2 pills before bed and am very pleased with the results
This in combination with the Sleep Support has truly improved my sleep - like all night without waking or tossing and turning because I was wired but tired. Love it!
