Supplement to blunt cortisol release from mental stress?

  1. 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!


  2. 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.

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

  4. 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.

  5. Check out Reduce XT, it's exactly what you're looking for.

  6. ashwangda root, they also mention st john wort for anxiety

  7. EndoAMP and Vidatest are what looking for... or Magnesium oil from swansonvitamins

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. this sounds like what you need, and it's on sale now too...

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

  12. Im using PES Erase and DS Lean Extreme. Yeah Erase has had positive effects on my mood.
    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

  20. 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.
