QuiCalm is a potent blend of adaptogenic nutraceuticals that have been carefully selected for their shared ability to support the body’s natural stress response by promoting healthy levels of cortisol. The body releases cortisol as part of this natural response to stress. Sustained periods of stress can lead to the body producing too much cortisol in response, which can result in a variety of troubling symptoms that include anxiety, fatigue, sleep loss, weight gain, high blood pressure and issues with focusing.
Relora® is a proprietary blend of the barks of two different Asian herbs: phellodendron (Phellodendron amurense) and magnolia (Magnolia officinalis). This adaptogenic herbal combination has long been used to address chronic stress, stress-related overeating and anxiety by helping the body optimize cortisol levels.
Suntheanine® is a high-purity, synthesized form of L-theanine, an essential amino acid commonly found in green and black tea. L-theanine is widely used to address anxiety and stress, as well as enhance focus, by optimizing levels of cortisol. In addition to promoting feelings of calm, L-theanine has often been used to support healthy immune and cardiovascular function.
Holy basil (Ocimum tenuiflorum) is another adaptogenic Asian herb that has been recognized for its ability to help the body regulate cortisol levels. Not only has holy basil long been used to help manage stress, but it is often used specifically to help enhance sleep quality in people who have been struggling with stress.
Managing stress effectively is a constant battle that the human body must undertake on a daily basis. The body’s natural response to stress is to release cortisol, a steroid produced by the adrenal glands that helps relieve stress by promoting feelings of calm. When faced with occasional stress, this well-regulated relationship runs efficiently like a machine. However, repeated and sustained periods of stress can lead to chronic stress. At first glance, chronic stress should not be a problem, because the body should be equipped to address each stressful situation by producing cortisol. On the contrary, consistently-high levels of cortisol can burn out the body’s cortisol receptors and lead to a host of new symptoms and conditions. Fortunately, nature provides solutions to chronic stress and high cortisol levels in the form of certain plants and mushrooms that contain cortisol-reducing ingredients known as adaptogens.
When chronic stress reaches this state of impasse, it can be difficult to help return the body to a state of homeostasis. Sometimes, the proper plant or mushroom with adaptogenic properties can be the best way to help reduce cortisol levels and start restoring a sense of calm to the body. Balancing cortisol levels can support a healthier and more effective stress response, allowing the body to more quickly return to a state of relaxation. Some of the most common adaptogens include holy basil (Ocimum tenuiflorum), American ginseng (Panax quinquefolium), magnolia (Magnolia officinalis), Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng) and ashwagandha (Withania somnifera).
While all of these adaptogenic plants can be found in the wild and often at the local grocery store, the most convenient way to provide the body with the proper amount of adaptogens is through professional grade nutraceuticals like QuiCalm from EVEXIAS Medical Centers. Adaptogenic nutraceuticals like QuiCalm contain potent blends of adaptogens in their purest forms, helping the body to maintain a healthy balance of cortisol and respond to stress more effectively. In addition to high-quality nutraceuticals, EVEXIAS Medical Centers offer lifestyle management assistance and more advanced therapies that include bioidentical hormone pellets and peptides.
