Green tea may have many health benefits, and in this study, doctors tested an antioxidant flavonoid in green tea, EGCG, for a link to brain activity and mood. Participants took 300 mg of EGCG, or a placebo. Before and two hours afterwards, researchers took a resting-state electroencephalogram (EEG) to measure brain activity.

While the placebo group did not change, the EGCG group had a greater sense of calm, reduced feelings of stress, and a significant increase in alpha, beta and theta brain waves, which correspond, respectively, to relaxation, reasoning, and creative powers.

Don’t let stress get you down!

Maybe you never thought about your adrenal gland being stress regulators before, but they are. When your adrenal glands are working properly, they release hormones that help your body maintain balance during stress. Left neglected, they could be the reason you’re feeling fatigued.

Adrenal Stress-End supports your adrenal gland function to:

  • Energize you even on the most stressful day*
  • Manage excess stress*
  • Combat stress-related fatigue*

This supplement features a combination of key nutrients including licorice to help balance levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, as well as L-tyrosine and adrenal polypeptide fractions to help revitalize the adrenal gland.*  This highly absorbable predigested form of adrenal extract needs little or no further digestion so the body can reap their natural benefits quickly and easily.
