Cordyceps (Cordyceps sinensis) -
  • Use of Cordyceps, which is a remarkably versatile medicinal mushroom, dates back almost two centuries. However, Cordyceps really grabbed Western attention in 1993 after its use was suggested to be the secret behind the setting of a series of long-distance records by Chinese female runners within a very short period of time. Research has since established it as a therapy for the accelerated strengthening and revitalization of the body after exhaustion or lengthy illness.39-41
  • Studies show that Cordyceps normalizes stress-induced homeostatic imbalances in the following areas:
  • •Blood sugar41,42
  • •Antioxidant activity43,44
  • •Immune activity39,45
  • •Inflammation39
  • •Lipid peroxidation43
  • •ATP (adenosine triphosphate)46
  • •Sexual function43
  • •HPA axis activity43

  • Ashwagandha
  • (Withania somnifera) - Ashwagandha, also known as Indian ginseng or Withania somnifera, is considered the foremost adaptogen in Ayurvedic medicine. Studies have shown that it helps the body to recover from the energy loss and mood-altering effects of stress.47-50
  • Scientists have found that Ashwagandha modulates stress-induced changes to homeostasis in the areas of:
  • •Neurotransmitters (affecting depression and anxiety)51
  • •Cortisol52
  • •HPA axis activity14
  • •Lipid peroxidation52
  • •Blood sugar14
  • •Antioxidant activity52
  • •Inflammation14
  • •Gastric ulceration20

    • When properly supported, the mechanism known as homeostasis enables the body to maintain its normal balance during stress, helping us to remain energized and focused. Increasingly overwhelmed by stress, however, our bodies seldom get a chance to restore our natural equilibrium. The result is that an estimated 75-90% of visits to primary care physicians are now related to the effects of stress. Even more alarming is a recently published study linking stress with shorter telomeres (the caps on the ends of chromosomes), which is associated with accelerated aging. Inhibiting the Pathways of Stress Stress disrupts multiple biochemical pathways, including cortisol production, the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, proinflammatory enzyme production and neurotransmitter production. A preclinical study has shown that stress also inhibits neural plasticity (the growth of new connections between neurons in the brain). Fortunately, Life Extension® has created a state-of-the-art formulation of botanical adaptogens, shown to modulate a broad range of factors to help relieve the effects of stress. Adrenal Energy Formula combines four known stress-modulating extracts—Holy basil, cordyceps, Bacopa, and ashwagandha—each scientifically validated to support homeostasis, even on the most stressful days. Each of these extracts modulates a different set of stress related changes in the body’s chemistry. Combined, they may complement each other to provide complete adaptogenic stress defense. For those who are seeking protection from the damaging effects of stress, Adrenal Energy Formula is a broad-spectrum, potent, and safe formulation for maintaining healthy energy and vitality! Adrenal Energy Formula modulates stress and supports energy and balance.Based on research from a variety of disciplines, researchers have discovered how extracts such as Holy Basil, Bacopa, Cordyceps, and Ashwagandha may protect against a broad range of chronic stress effects.
    • A recently published study1 has confirmed the alarming discovery2-5 that stress can result in the shortening of telomeres— an indicator of accelerated aging!7
    • •Scientists have now pinpointed four extracts that powerfully modulate the multiple pathways of stress. Holy Basil, Bacopa, Cordyceps, and Ashwagandha each work to restore homeostasis and inhibit stress damage.
    • •Controlled human studies have now shown that the stress defense provided by these four potent adaptogens translates into experiential improvements in mental and physical health.
    • •The effects of stress have a significant impact on everyday health matters with an estimated 75-90% of visits to primary care physicians now related to the effects of stress.
