Product Name: ATP – CORT RX
Product Type: General Health and vitamins/minerals
ATP Science Cort RX is a supplement formulated to assist anyone participating in physical performance to accomplish their goals. This supplement functions in helping to restore healthy cortisol levels, reduce damaging effects of cortisol and removes the burden off the adrenal gland and has a sparing effect on cortisol. It also assists in reducing the effects of immune, inflammation and toxic triggers on internal stressors.
The hypersecretion of cortisol is occurring more frequently due to both psychological and physical stressors. Psychological stressors include stress from finances, work, electronical devices. The physical stressors include inflammation, allergies, chronic pain and highly caffeinated beverages.
CORT RX combines high quality herbal extracts and adaptogenic herbs to restore normal cortisol levels, stimulate energy and promote restfulness during times of stress.
- Schisandra Chinensis Berry Extract: Is an adaptogenic herb which works in collaboration with the body by assisting it to adapt to mental and physical stress. Schisandra is the berry component of a vine native to North-West China and has been recognised for its predominant function as an antioxidant in protecting against the dangerous effects of free radicals that result from radiation, pollutants, chemicals, poor diet and malnutrition. Schisandra functions to increase physical capacity, reduce fatigue and stress by restoring cortisol levels. This results in reduced anxiety, increase performance, improved sleep and recovery. It also enhances perception because it prevents the acetylcholinesterase enzyme which is responsible for acetylcholine breakd0wn which is the chemical that increases brain function.
- Withania Somnifera extract: Is also referred to as Ashwaganda Herb which is a commonly used adaptogenic herb. The predominant function of Withania Somnifera is to assist with effectively dealing with stress. This herb functions in efficiently switching off the stress responses of the nervous system and enriches the parasympathetic nervous system to support immune function and recovery.
- Rhodiola Rosea: The effects of both Schisandra Chinensis and Withania Somnifera are enhanced in combination with Rhodiola Rosea. Rhodiola Rosea provides effects on neurotransmission including serotonin, dopamine and adrenaline. This herb is an effective anti-catabolic which protects against muscle/protein breakdown and offers anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties.
- Curcuma longa extract (Turmeric): Turmeric is known as one of the finest natural remedies to treat some of the major causative factors of disease including inflammation, oxidation and toxicity. Turmeric contains curcuminoids which have powerful effects on the body because it naturally dampens down the defence mechanisms which would otherwise be treated by more intrusive sedative and antidepressants.
