Everybody experiences stress. Theres no escaping it. Some people thrive and cope with the stress, while others suffer the effects of stress. Cort RX wont eliminate your stress, but it will help you cope with it.

Stress affects our body in different ways, however chronic stress, such as finances, relationships and sometimes where you work are new to the human body. Strangely, we actually evolved as stress being our best friend. If we are getting chased by a Saver-Toothed Tiger, being stressed would have saved our life! Massive amounts of adrenaline and cortisol would have been released by the body so as we could (hopefully) outrun or out fight the beast. If we didn’t have that response, we would have been the big cat’s lunch.

“I love this product i’m finally sleeping more than 3 hrs at a time it’s amazing!!!!” – Liz Johns
Now days, most of us arent being chased by big cats, but our genes are still programmed that way. The ‘beast’ chasing us today is chronic long term (day/week/year) stress, unlike the tiger’s ‘minutes’ of stress. This means our body is pumping out lots more cortisol (a stress hormone) than we know what to do with. Long term elevated cortisol has catastophic effects throughout the body, such as increased fat mass, loss of muscle mass, a reduced immune system and much more. Yet here we are with the mortgage, stressful job and even environmental stress we simply cant escape. We just have to manage these unavoidable stressors better.

Schisandra reduces anxiety and lowers cortisol

Schisandra has been shown to be a potent snxiolytic, reducing anxiety during times of physical and mental stress. Schisandra may reverse stress-induces anxiety levels, by modulating stress-induced changes to the HPA (hypothalmic-pituitary-adrenal) axis, cortex monoamine transmitters and cortisol.

Schisandra chinensis

Schisandra chinensis is an adaptogen, helping the body adapt to physical and mental stress. It improves dexterity, focus and co-ordination. Schisandra corrects respiratory acidosis and improves performance. One study on thoroughbreds showed an improvement of 6 lengths in an 800m race.

Schisandra improves physical performance

Schisandra chinensis has been shown to exhibit a remarkable effect on the physical performance of race horses. When treated with Schisandra, horses were able to complete the 800 m in a significantly shorter and the speed reached by the Schisandra-treated horses was also significantly higher than when saline treated. This study indicated that Schisandra extract was able to induce a greater response to physical effort. This was translated into a decrease of the time (1.8 s less) for the completion of the 800m race, equivalent to an improvement of 6 lengths in an 800m race.

Schisandra improves mental performance

Schisandra enhances memory, focus and concentration span via cholinergic function and works as an acetylcholine esterase inhibitor, thereby preserving acetylcholine levels and activity in nerve synapses.
