This product is made up of adaptogenic herbs
which are traditionally revered for their ability to help the body to adapt to stress and bring it back into balance,
without forcing, but in a gentle way. The same herb may work differently in different bodies. For example, in one
person a particular herb may cause movement, and in someone else it may cause relaxation. This adaptogenic formula
I have found helpful for fatigue, memory and hormonal imbalances. It helps me to respond to stressful situations
in a more relaxed manner including stress associated with adrenal lows causing sugar cravings. It is also particularly
useful for the stresses brought on by pain syndromes including gallbladder pain. It is an excellent inclusion in
any weight loss program, not only because of the stress involved, but in its ability to help with blood sugar swings
and sugar cravings.
Dosage: 2-3 caps in am. Can take 1-2 at noon if needed.

We are not nearly as aware
of the negative effects stress can have on our health. It has such far-reaching consequences as shown by the abstract
of a study below. I have added astericks with my own comments and explanations below the article.
Nutritional and botanical interventions
to assist with the adaptation to stress
by GS Kelly, MD, Alternative Medical Review, 1999 Aug, 4(4)249-65.
"Prolonged stress, whether a result
of mental/emotional upset or due to physical factors such as malnutrition, surgery, chemical exposure, excessive
exercise, sleep deprivation, or a host of other environmental causes, results in predictable systemic* effects.
The systemic effects of stress include increased levels of stress hormones such as cortisol**, a decline in certain
aspects of immune system function such as natural killer cell cytotoxicity or secretory-IgA levels, and a disruption
of gastrointestinal microflora balance. These systemic changes might be a substantial contributor to many of the
stress-associated declines in health.*** Based on human and animal research, it appears a variety of nutritional
and botanical substances - such as adaptogenic herbs, specific vitamins including ascorbic acid, vitamins B1 and
B6, the coenzyme forms of vitamin B5 (pantethine) and B12**** (methylcobalamin), the amino acid tyrosine, and other
nutrients such as lipoic acid, phosphatidylserine, and plant sterol/sterolin combinations - may allow individuals
to sustain an adaptive response and minimize some of the systemic effects of stress."
* Systemic means throughout the whole body.
**Cortisol is a hormone secreted by the adrenal gland in response to stress such as inflammation. When too much
cortisol is present at night it can cause insomnia. Adrenacalm cream helps to lower cortisol levels and therefore
may help you to sleep. Cortisol also raises blood sugar levels which is a problem for diabetics or those with a
tendency to insulin resistance.
***Some stress-associated health conditions include gastrointestinal problems (gallbladder, constipation, indigestion,
etc.), obesity, headaches, asthma, depression, anxiety, Alzheimer's, insomnia.
****All of these B vitamins are found in food-derived sources in Max-Stress B.
