Cortisol Manager promotes relaxation to support restful sleep.

Cortisol is one of the most important hormones involved in the adaptation process.
  1. A 2008 placebo-controlled clinical trial showed that Sensoril® ashwagandha significantly reduced serum cortisol levels and helped manage stress compared to placebo, in subjects experiencing higher levels of stress.
  2. A 2018 placebo-controlled clinical trial showed that a single intake of Suntheanine™ L-theanine significantly increased alpha brain wave activity in subjects compared to their placebo counterparts.Alpha brain wave activity is associated with a more relaxed mental state.
  1. Cortisol is a hormone produced in the adrenal cortex that is released during times of stress.
  2. Variations in cortisol secretion can indicate how well the body is coping with stress.
  3. Cortisol homeostasis is typically characterized by peak secretion during the early morning hours with a gradual decline throughout the day.
  4. Because of its central role as a key stress hormone, cortisol is often thought of as a bridge between stress and its health impact.
  1. The ingredients in Cortisol Manager help support a balanced, adaptive cortisol response to stress.
  2. Cortisol Manager contains a stress-reducing proprietary blend of Sensoril® brand ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) and Suntheanine™ brand L-theanine.
  3. A proprietary blend of Magnolia (Magnolia officinalis) and epimedium (Epimedium koreanum), as well as phosphatidylserine from soy lecithin are included in Cortisol Manager.

Q. Can Cortisol Manager® be taken during the day? Will it cause drowsiness?
A. While some individuals do take Cortisol Manager® during the day, caution should be used as it will cause you to relax and drowsiness may occur.†

Q. Can Cortisol Manager® be helpful for someone with low cortisol levels?
A. While the ingredients do have a modulating effect, the small scale study shows a rather significant reduction in cortisol levels. Therefore, we would not recommend Cortisol Manager® for someone with low cortisol.

Q. What is the source of the phosphatidylserine in Cortisol Manager®?
A. The source of the phosphatidylserine in Cortisol Manager® is vegetable glycerin. The glycerin, in turn, is derived from a highly purified, refined soybean oil, which contains no allergenic proteins.

Q. Are there any drug or nutrient interactions with Cortisol Manager? DISCONTINUED
A. Caution should be taken whenever recommending, or consuming, nutritional supplements. Healthcare professionals can use this drug-nutrient interaction checker to view potential interactions with the ingredients of Cortisol Manager. Patients should consult their preferred healthcare professional for any supplement questions.

Q. Can Cortisol Manager be used in mid or late-stage stress response?
A. Though typically used within the early-stage of the stress response, Cortisol Manager can be used in the mid and late stages – particularly within the mid-stage when additional energy and stress support is needed.* The HPA Optimization program highlights key nutrient support that is appropriate for the mid and late stages, such as the adaptogenic herbal combination of HPA Adapt, for mid-stage, and CortiVive for late stage, which supports healthy cortisol production and healthy adrenal cortex function.

Q. As a member of the nightshade family, does ashwagandha pose any potential dangers or side effects?
A. No, not when used properly. Research has shown that ashwagandha offers safe and effective support for the body during times of stress.* Unfortunately, there are some sources indicating that all plants of the Solanaceae or nightshade family (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, and ashwagandha, included) should be avoided because of their potential to reduce immune system function. However, many of these same plants and herbs have been used as food staples and medicines for thousands of years. These compounds, found in green part of the vegetables, may cause adverse effects in humans when taken at unrealistically high levels.
