    Supplement to blunt cortisol release from mental stress?


    I suffer from OCD as well as a bit of anxiety and was curious as to what supplements would be best to blunt my adrenals from releasing excess cortisol in periods of mental stress, as I know that any kind of stress is bad for muscle growth.

    I am familiar with relora and cissus for reducing cortisol, but I am specifically interested in something that will blunt or stop cortisol from being released when I experience a type of mental stress.

    Thanks!

    I have similar issues myself. I highly recommend you checkout Erase by PES. It has anticortisol effects. Been taking it for a couple weeks now and I have definitely noticed a positive impact on my mood and overall mental well being.

    I also recommend you take some fish/krill oil supplements. You can also look into SAMe, 5-HTP, GABA, and Valerian root.

    Cheapest supplement route is vitamin C, I find intense and regular cardio helps mostly.

    Oh yeah, I've also been doing a lot more cardio than before these past few weeks. That is definitely another excellent way to help manage stress.

    I've had good stress/anxiety reducing effects with 200mg-600mg L-Theanine+350mg-700mg Passion Flower Extract. I use the NOW brand. I take both supplements at the same time.

    I tried these out after reading some good reviews of Seredyn. I just looked up the ingredients in Seredyn and bought the ingredients. Seredyn also has Valerian in it but I skipped that because I know that's a common sleep aid and I didn't want the sleepy effect.

    Seconded on VitC. I take 2-3g a day, 1g when i wake up when cortisol is high, then 1g or so post workout when cortisol is high again. I can't really comment on the products mentioned in this thread but VitC will be your most cost effective response to high cortisol. Buy a bottle from NOW for less than 10 dollars and profit.

    Reduce XT + Picamilon-150 + Phenibut XT. Stop cortisol at the source and reduce already elevated levels.

    Vitamin C
    Reduce XT
    Antioxidant blends - I like AppNut BioMend
    Sex - could be cheap or very expensive depending on where you shop
    Sleep - pretty cheap, buy in bulk

    Agree here. Erase is a very versatile supplement, and in most users, the feedback shows signs of lowering cortisol

    Reduce XT and Vitamin C would be the perfect combo for this.

    NOW Relora and Holy Basil at 3 caps each, 3 times per day. Add HerbPharma Lemon Balm extract at 2-3 dropperfuls and nothing will get under your skin.
