Millions of Americans simply accept stress as part of our fast-paced, modern lifestyles. But stress factors can affect cortisol levels, a steroid hormone produced by your body. The special Relora and Oligonol ingredient blends in Advanced Cortisol Balance support healthy cortisol levels, thereby promoting a healthy response to mood and general fatigue. Relora is a proprietary blend of Magnolia officinalis and Phellodendron amurense bark extracts. Studies show that Relora affects salivary cortisol levels, encouraging a healthy stress response. Relora also binds to neurochemical receptors which regulate mood and stress levels, and supplementing with Relora improved mood scores on standardized tests. Oligonol is a unique, time-release blend of lychee fruit and green tea extracts. In a random, placebo-controlled study, Oligonol helped inhibit pro-inflammatory IL1? and IL6 cytokines which when left unchecked, encourage increased cortisol activity and biological stress response. When we experience stress, it can affect how we act, such as diminishing motivation to exercise and increasing our susceptibility to emotional eating. This is why stress management is so important to weight management. A 2017 study tested cortisol levels in the hair of 2,527 men and women and found that those who had more cortisol in their hair were more likely to be overweight or have excess fat around their midsections. A 2009 study had 18 volunteers take 100 mg of Oligonol for 10 weeks. They reported Oligonol supplementation resulted in a significant decrease in body weight, abdominal circumference and visceral fat, and improved insulin resistance. Advanced Cortisol Balance is the only nutritional supplement formula to combine Relora and Oligonol into a single, stress-support supplement. So don’t stress – add Advanced Cortisol Balance to your nutritional regimen today!
