Up to 80% of visits to primary care physicians may be related to the effects of stress.1 One reason we so often seek help in supporting a healthy response to stress is that it's critical we support our bodies' ability to maintain homeostasis, or a state of equilibrium across physiological systems. Homeostasis is essential for health, so helping your body maintain homeostasis promotes a healthy physiological response to stress.
Botanical adaptogens help relieve stress
Fortunately, Life Extension has combined four potent extracts from botanical adaptogens. These compounds have been shown to modulate a broad range of factors to help relieve the effects of stress.
The four stress-modulating extracts from holy basil, cordyceps, bacopa and ashwagandha support homeostasis.2-8 Combined, they may complement each other to provide comprehensive adaptogenic stress defense.
The benefits of inhibiting stress response
Stress has been linked with shorter telomeres (the caps on the ends of chromosomes), suggesting that stress and aging may be linked.9
Stress affects neurotransmitter production. In a pre-clinical study, stress inhibited neural plasticity (the ability of neurons to form new connections along neural communication pathways in response to new stimuli).10 So relieving stress may help support cognitive health.
