It has become increasingly evident, based both on research data and anecdotal reports, that chronic stress can no longer be defined strictly in terms of the degree of cortisol elevation or depression. In contrast,research data suggests that, as chronic stress inevitably leads to a state of adrenocortical exhaustion or “burn-out,” a compensatory adrenal response will often occur in the form of increased sympathetic, catecholamine activity.1 Because of this increasingly more common phenomenon, which is often seen with such conditions as post-traumatic stress disorder2 andclassic fibromyalgia,3,4it has become necessary toemploy formulations that not only optimize cortisol balance, but correct catecholamine imbalances as well, particularly when sympathetic responses appear to be excessive. CatecholaCalm™ is a formula that is specifically designed to address this very unique but prevalent set of adrenal hormone imbalances. The product accomplishes this objective by employing adaptogenic, nervine and adrenal tonic herbs that are relaxing, along with nutrients that are designed to help with adaptation to stress and optimization of adrenal gland health. The specific focus is on both cortisol and catecholamine balance. Elevated catecholamines can affect serum blood glucose and insulin levels, and therefore contribute to the development of metabolic syndrome, as seen with elevated cortisol.5With today’s stressors it is becoming especially important to focus on the often underappreciated issue of catecholamine optimization.

Ashwagandha is a relaxing adaptogen.Valerian root (Valeriana officinalis)This herb has demonstrated sedative effects due to its abil-ity to induce the release of GABA from brain tissue.8Passion flower (Passiflora incarnate)It has been suggested that the passion flower constituent, apigenin, binds to central benzodiazepine receptors, possi-bly causing anxiolytic effects without impairing memory or motor skills.9Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis)This herb has been suggested to improve calmness via the inhibitory action of GABA, similar to benzodiazepines,10but without the overt side-effects of these medications.
