Adaptogenic herbs, such as schisandra, withania and rhodiola, are often used to assist with the adaptation to stress, whether this stress be psychological, mental or emotional. One of the hormones that tends to rise during stressful times is cortisol. Furthermore, caffeine increases the amount of cortisol released. Even prolongued use of caffeine increases cortisol secretions, just to a lesser degree. Although cortisol is part of the reason that we are able to manage during stressful times, and the caffeine-induced increases are probably a part of the reason that we like the effects of caffeine, elevations of cortisol over extended periods of time, either due to stress or high caffeine use (such as preworkouts) may eventually lead to adrenal fatigue, a feeling of being burned-out or exhausted. This is where ATP Science CORT RX can come in handy. It helps us adapt to stress and assists in the regeneration of the adrenal glands.
Rhodiola rosea is a herb that has served the biology of Chinese Emperors and Vikings, with a lengthy history literally dating back thousands of years. In modern times, this Russian herb has been, and still is, being researched, with results indicting thus far that its supplementation reduces fatigue, boosts mental performance and reduces cortisol levels. Withania somnifera is a herb typically used for its mild sedative (caliming) effects, likely due to its GABA-mimetic effect, and ability to reduce elevated cortisol levels. Furthermore, curcumin is a potent anti-inflammatory phytonutrient found in turmeric root, which helps to reduce the stress-associated inflammation that can occur, which is important for general and adrenal gland health.
