During times of acute stress, the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis is over-stimulated and needs help re-balancing. The over-production of cortisol and other stress hormones is typical for individuals with HPA axis overload. AdreneVive is formulated to help respond to HPA axis overload by reducing cortisol levels and limiting the negative impact of acute adrenal stress. Combining three popular adaptogenic herbs (Siberian Ginseng, Rhodiola and Ashwagandha), this formula also includes an extract of Scutterlaria biacalensis to help support the immune system during times of stress.
Phosphotidylserine is known for its ability to reduce cortisol production during HPA axis overload and is a precursor to important neuron metabolites. L-theanine, an amino acid found naturally in tea, is able to act as a calming agent, reducing the perception of stress, reducing cortisol levels and helping to maintain healthy immune status.
