Description

 

Stress is defined as any disturbance—extreme cold or heat, psychological stress, sleep deprivation, work overload, physical trauma, as well as toxic exposure—that can trigger the stress response. The body’s stress response system is comprised of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. Prolonged stress triggers the HPA axis and consists of three stages: alarm, resistance and exhaustion.

The initial, short-lived phase is the body’s normal fight-or-flight response to danger, characterized by elevated cortisol levels. The subsequent resistance phase allows the body to continue buffering extended stress exposure. Even long after the initial fight-or-flight response has dissipated. Hormones released by the adrenals, such as cortisol and DHEA, help support the “resistance” reaction. Extended periods of stress not only burden the system, creating an imbalance in cortisol and DHEA production, but can result in mental and physical fatigue, nervous tension, irritability and poor memory—all of which are characteristic of stage 3. NuAdapt provides a unique blend of botanicals and nutrients that supports the stress response, improves cognition and in particular, promotes cortisol balance during the initial alarm phase.

Clinical Applications

  • Strengthens the Body’s Stress Response and Improves Stress Resilience
  • Improves Memory, Focus and Attention
  • Supports Cognitive Health
  • Improves Mental and Physical Performance
  • Supports Healthy Cortisol and Energy Levels
L-Theanine

L-Theanine is an amino acid in green tea. In addition, L-theanine can quickly improve stress perception and resilience. The stress-buffering mechanisms of L-theanine connects to the ability of L-theanine to increase serotonin and dopamine production in the brain. L-theanine significantly increase alpha brain wave activity, which is critical for increasing attention as well as promoting a sense of relaxation. L-theanine is protective for nerve cells and reduces excitatory glutamate activity in the brain.

Phosphatidylserine

Phosphatidylserine is a phospholipid in the brain in high concentrations. In studies administering phosphatidylserine (50-800 mg) to subjects under stress (physical, emotional, mental, etc.), reduces stress-induced excretion of cortisol. Administration of phosphatidylserine has also been studied in exercising subjects. In studies phosphatidylserine reduces the cortisol response to overtraining resulting in a reduction in perceived muscle soreness and improvement in athletic performance.

Bacopa monierri

Bacopa monierri is an herb that provides nervous system support for individuals under stress. Bacognize® can improve memory, learning, attention, and focus. In studies Bacognize is showing strong regulation of mood function at the serotonin receptor. Bacopa offers neuroprotection and antioxidant effects to reduce oxidative stress.

Ashwagandha Root Extract

Ashwagandha’s strong adaptogenic properties provide an array of benefits for individuals that have compromised health due to extreme stress exposure. Ashwagandha’s benefits include improving stress resilience, supporting immune response, regulating the sleep cycle, supporting healthy thyroid function and protecting against exhaustion of the nervous system. Ashwagandha is beneficial in supporting proper mood regulation and restoring a sense of calmness under stress.

Rhodiola rosea Root Extract

Similary, rhodiola rosea is an adaptogenic botanical due to its ability to increase resistance to a variety of stressors. Rhodiola widely known in Eastern Europe and Asia to help support the nervous system, mood regulation, mental clarity, word performance and the sleep cycle. Within the central nervous system, Rhodiola has demonstrated an ability to preserve levels of neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine. Rhodiola can significantly reduce the feeling of fatigue under stress. It has also shown significant improvements in mental performance, greater mood stability, and improved sleep patterns.

Eleuthero Root Extract

Eleutherococcus senticosus is a strong adaptogenic botanical. Similarly, widely used in China to improve general health, support memory and endurance. In addition to its ability to improve stress resilience and fight fatigue, Eleuthero has exhibited immune supporting effects. In conclusion, eleuthero has demonstrated a reduction of heart rate in response to a stressor and improvement of performance in runners (race time).
