Stress is a major factor in modern life. Getting several kids to separate places all at the same time, financial concerns, domestic duties, disagreements, pressures at work, health problems, and other threats to our well being are nearly constant issues. While the body is equipped to deal with these issues on an occasional basis, we were not designed for constant stress.
When we feel threatened or are under pressure, the adrenal glands secrete hormones that help us run more quickly or fight more fiercely, thus increasing our chance for survival. However, as we enter survival mode, normal metabolic processes like immunity, digestion, bone building and reproduction are put on hold. Thus, the more pressure we are under, the less energy our bodies give to daily life needs.
CalmEssence™ provides 150 mg per day of pure L-Theanine (Suntheanine®), an amino acid from green tea that studies have shown promotes a sense of calm, even under extreme pressure. It also provides Honokiol, a phytochemical from Magnolia bark that helps us remain calm. These factors may help reduce the frequency of the stress response being triggered in your body. They may also reduce the intensity of stress responses when they do occur. Any reduction in the amount and/or intensity of stress response is a step toward better health.
CalmEssence™ also provides Ashwagandha, Eleuthero (Siberian ginseng), Schizandra, Rhodiola and Cordyceps, which, combined, provide the most profound adrenal support you’ll find in any supplement. These botanicals rebuild adrenal energy, counteract the physiological effects of stress and renew adrenal integrity. In cases where adrenal exhaustion, or its symptoms (please see full CalmEssence™ and AdrenalEssence™ brochures) are considered severe, CalmEssence™ and AdrenalEssence™ can be used together until you begin to once again feel your best. Then, you can choose between these two products, depending on which you feel helps you feel more like your old self.
