Cortisol Manager by Integrative Therapeutics is a dietary supplement that works to reduce stress and lower your body’s cortisol levels. It uses safe‚ natural‚ and non-habit forming ingredients. The tablets are gluten-free‚ dairy-free‚ and free of corn‚ wheat‚ yeast‚ preservatives‚ and artificial flavorings. Cortisol Manager is also suitable for vegans and vegetarians‚ because it’s free of any ingredients of animal origin.
Chronic fatigue‚ anxiety‚ and lack of sleep are common symptoms of stress. During stressful situations‚ your body reacts by creating hormones. Cortisol’s role is to reduce the levels of these hormones once the stress is gone. But what happens when you are under constant stress? Your hormone levels stay high‚ leading to anxiety and sleeplessness. An overload of cortisol may also lead to excessive abdominal fat.
One of the ingredients in Integrative Therapeutics’ Cortisol Manager is ashwagandha. Ashwagandha is a type of adaptogen; adaptogens have normalizing effects on certain hormones. Ashwagandha has actually been shown to have the ability to lower cortisone levels‚ helping to relieve your stress.
One of the other ingredients in these tablets is magnolia bark extract. Magnolia bark has been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years. It contains two important compounds: honokiol and magnolol. Research indicates that magnolol and honokiol may have anti-anxiety and anti-depressant effects. As a result‚ taking Cortisol Manager before bed can create a calming feeling and a sense of relaxation. Getting a good night’s sleep is virtually impossible if you’re not relaxed. Sleeplessness may also contribute to a more stressful day tomorrow‚ creating a vicious cycle. Fortunately‚ the stress- and cortisol-reducing proprietary blends can assist in breaking that cycle.
