A very effective adaptogen that helps manage physical and mental stress and also helps with sleep

CortRX is a product that contains Schisandra, Turmeric, Rhodiola, and Withania.

CortRX is a powerful combination of adaptogenic herbs; adaptogens help you deal with stress and adapt to the situation at hand via helping support the normal function and efficiency of our stress axis.[1] *

If we’re getting chased by a tiger; massive amounts of adrenalin and cortisol would have been released by the body so we could (hopefully) outrun or outfight the beast. If we didn’t have that response, we would have been the big cat’s lunch; and of course, then not had a chance to make babies. This is partly why there are so many people suffering from stress in the world. You inherited a survival technique that is ideal for surviving acute life-threatening stress but may not be the most efficient way to deal with an internet troll, a bully, a text, bills, public speaking, crowds, or that boss on your back.

How we react to stress

Nowadays, most of us aren’t being chased by big cats but our genes are still programmed that way. The ‘beast’ chasing us today is chronic stress, the long-term daily grind, and constant exposure and unavoidable stress unlike the Tiger’s ‘minutes’ of acute intense stress.

Each time, regardless of the trigger we release neurotransmitters (such as noradrenaline) and hormones (in particular cortisol) that catalyze a series of events that help us deal with the challenge. Cortisol is a very interesting hormone as it helps with the survival response through various mechanisms like increasing blood sugar[2] and blocking relaxation and sleepy chemicals (serotonin)[3] but then it has a “negative feedback” effect, letting the body know that you had a stress response and can now switch off and relax.

The problem is with modern life there is constantly one form of trigger or another so there is a constant stimulus to pump out these stress chemicals. Chronic exposure to powerful hormone-like cortisol can increase fat gain, disrupt healthy sleep patterns, immune responses, fluid distribution, and blood sugar. [4]

Yet here we are with the mortgage, stressful job and even environmental stress we simply can’t escape. We just have to manage these unavoidable stressors better.

The hormonal fluctuations

To fully understand how to influence hormonal secretions and activities we must first understand the big picture and know the natural cycles that dictate our body’s priorities between thriving or surviving. The Hypothalamus in our brain collects data from our body to inform of potential stressors.[5] Our body can’t afford to wait and see if something is life-threatening before it reacts, therefore it will trigger a stress response, proactively, just in case. The immune system, inflammatory chemicals, emotional stress, fear, pain, temperature extremes, toxicity, training hard, caffeine, etc. will all activate the Hypothalamus to initiate a survival response. The end result is that the hypothalamus sends this stress message to our pituitary gland, which then signals the adrenals to pump out cortisol.[6] This, of course, is a natural response but too much cortisol is very bad for our health.[7][8][9][10][11][12][13][14]

Take-Home Message

If you feel you have cortisol dysregulation, try to reduce the stressors in your life. Seek help from medical professionals and discuss Cort Rx as an optional tool to help with your holistic lifestyle strategy.

Methods of use:


Cort Rx is formulated to help you maintain a healthy stress response.

If you are going through a stressful period with busy days that are leaving you feeling “wired but tired” and unable to switch off; you can take Cort Rx 1 capsule 3 times daily with food.

If you find that the more tired you get the harder it is to get a good night’s sleep than take 2 Cort RX before bed.

Most people may find they hover between these two phases going from an overflowing cup to empty. Cort Rx can help and you can change the way you take it to suit your current lifestyle.
