A minor mistake that could spike your cortisol levels by 20%
My watch says I got 5 hours and 42 minutes of sleep last night.
And I just saw a study that states that two consecutive nights where you don't get enough sleep can increase your cortisol levels (stress) by nearly 20% - with no perceivable physical effects!
IN TWO NIGHTS!
So many of us are stressed and we don't even know it. Too little sleep, too much exercise, too many stimulants, processed foods, work, finances, children, retirement.
It's all stressful.
If you're finding it hard to lose weight, recover from your workouts, or just be mentally effective in your day to day life... you might want to take a closer look at your stress levels.
And the first thing you should do is get more sleep. It's extensively clear that a lack of sleep slows down your metabolism and makes you dumber.
But sleep isn't always enough.
That's why I formulated Equilibrium, but Equilibrium has some new ingredients that I really want to point out.
#1 Phosphatidylserine 50% (from Sunflower Lecithin) 400 mg - PS is an absolute powerhouse ingredient. Not only does it reduce stress-related hormones (like cortisol) allowing your hormones to regulate more easily, it also improves your mood, reduces mental stress, and is incredible for your brain.
#2 KSM-66® Ashwagandha Extract 600 mg - KSM-66 isn't a new ingredient, but it's an example of how I've always been improving Equilibrium.
Originally we used generic Ashwagandha at 300mg. As we were able to continue improving the product (due to quantity price breaks), I switched to KSM-66 at 600mg.
KSM-66 has 24 clinical double-blind placebo-controlled studies to its name. For our purposes, it's absolutely incredible for stress reduction and hormone balance. Male sex hormones, female sex hormones, thyroid hormones - they've got studies to prove it helps bring ALL of it back to balance.
#3 Magnolia Powder 300 mg - Magnolia is best known for helping you manage your stress, reducing cortisol, and improving your mood. There are even multiple studies showing how Magnolia itself helps to regulate appetite and metabolism!
#4 Holy Basil Extract 300 mg - Like KSM-66, Holy Basil Extract is an adaptogen. That means it helps your body adapt to stressful situations and promotes mental balance. Studies show some fantastic things for weight loss as well, like lowering your fasting blood glucose levels - helping your body become more sensitive to insulin.
The combination of these four ingredients will help your body adapt to stress, bringing down the damaging long-term effects of those stress hormones. Once stress is reduced, hormones can be adequately balanced with KSM-66 and Holy Basil.
Balanced hormones make fat loss, muscle building, and daily life so much better.
