CatecholaCalm 90 ct

Price: $42.30

Code: CAC090

A unique formulation specially designed for the ever-increasing number of “burned-out” anxious patients suffering from a unique combination of low cortisol and elevated catecholamines (epinephrine and norepinephrine).

It is now becoming increasingly evident, based both on research data and anecdotal reports, that chronic stress can no longer be defined strictly in terms of the degree of cortisol elevation or depression. In contrast, research data suggests that, as chronic stress inevitably leads to a state of adrenocortical exhaustion or “burn-out,” a compensatory adrenal response will often occur in the form of increased sympathetic, catecholamine activity.

Because anecdotal and research information suggests that this is becoming an increasingly more common phenomenon, often seen with such conditions as post-traumatic stress disorder and classic fibromyalgia, it has become necessary to employ formulations that not only optimize cortisol balance, but optimize catecholamine imbalance also, particularly when sympathetic responses appear to be excessive.

CatecholaCalm is a formula that is specifically designed to address this very unique but increasingly prevalent set of adrenal hormone imbalances. The product accomplishes this objective by employing adaptogenic and adrenal tonic herbs that are relaxing and nutrients that are designed to help with adaptation to stress and optimization of adrenal gland health, with specific focus on both cortisol and catecholamine balance. Given that elevated catecholamines can affect serum blood glucose and insulin levels, thus contributing to development of metabolic syndrome, similar to the role of elevated cortisol, focusing on the often under appreciated issue of catecholamine optimization becomes especially important.
