Cortisol Manager dietary supplement has been clinically shown to reduce cortisol levels. The supplement combines an effective dose of phosphatidylserine with documented stress-reducing ingredients and cortisol-lowering botanicals to help relieve occasional sleeplessness at night while also providing all-day stress reduction. Cortisol Manager promotes relaxation and supports a healthy sleep cycle without the use of habit forming ingredients.
Cal/Mag 1:1 provides calcium and magnesium in equal amounts, with 200 mg of each mineral per 2 capsule serving. Although the most commonly recommended dietary ratio of calcium to magnesium is 2:1, magnesium depletion has become very common in the US. Many components of the modern lifestyle increase magnesium loss, including stress (physical or emotional), alcohol or coffee consumption, exercise, excessive sweating, and certain medications such as birth control pills, various antibiotics, and common diuretics. These factors cause many individuals to require extra magnesium to compensate.The calcium and magnesium in this product are Albion mineral amino acid chelates for optimal tolerance and absorption.
Cortisol, released in response to stress, is mainly produced by the adrenal cortex. Intra-abdominal adipocytes also produce cortisol. In a recent study, Sensoril ashwagandha extract promoted relaxation and maintained healthy cortisol and C-reactive protein levels. Subjects in this randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled study reported support for healthy sleep, positive mood and cognitive function. The effects were most pronounced for subjects taking 500 mg. per day compared to lesser doses. Rhodiola and magnolia may also maintain healthy adrenal cortisol activity and offer support for stress, mood and emotional well-being. l-Theanine supports normal brain alpha-wave activity, helping calm the sympathetic nervous system for a relaxing effect. Recent research suggests that maintaining healthy vitamin D levels supports normal cortisol production within abdominal adipocytes. Gluten Free, GMO Free, Vegetarian.

Berberine Synergy™ supplies high potency berberine combined with alpha lipoic acid to help support optimal blood sugar and insulin levels, cardiovascular health and liver health. Berberine is an alkaloid compound found in the roots, rhizomes, stems and bark of several plants commonly used in botanical and Chinese medicine, such as goldenseal, Oregon grape, barberry, and Berberis aristata. Lipoic acid is best known for its antioxidant properties and its ability to support healthy insulin secretion and function. It is also a key cofactor for mitochondrial enzymes involved in cellular metabolism and energy (ATP) production.
Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a major calming brain chemical or neurotransmitter. Clinical studies show that the natural form of GABA that is in Thorne's PharmaGABA can decrease the brain's stress-related beta waves and increase the production of its alpha-waves, creating a profound sense of physical relaxation while maintaining mental focus. Other studies have shown reduced pupil diameter, heart rate, and two natural biomarkers of stress – salivary cortisol and chromogranin A – all signs of relaxation. In addition, studies also indicate GABA can enhance sleep. In a head-to-head, double-blind trial of natural PharmaGABA versus synthetic GABA, the synthetic GABA did not demonstrate these positive effects. PharmaGABA-250 offers 250 mg of natural GABA per capsule, while PharmaGABA-100 offers 100 mg per capsule. Both are non-habit forming. In a recent study of the effect of nutrient supplementation on muscle mass, 21 males, average age 39, who did not exercise regularly, were given 10 grams of whey protein or 10 grams of whey protein plus 100 mg of PharmaGABA daily for 12 weeks. Both groups participated in twice weekly 60-minute strength training sessions that consisted of leg presses, leg extensions, leg curls, chest presses, and pull-downs. Total body lean muscle mass increased significantly in the whey protein-plus-PharmaGABA group compared to the whey-only group. The natural GABA in Thorne's PharmaGABA suite is produced via a fermentation process that utilizes Lactobacillus hilgardii, the same bacteria that is used to ferment cabbage in the preparation of the traditional Korean dish known as kimchi.
