The Science Behind Natural Stress Fighters

Energy by science products fight stress by providing natural compounds in our formulations that specifically target adrenal gland support. The adrenal glands are key players in stress adaptation in your body. They are triangular-shaped endocrine (hormone) organs located above the kidneys that secrete various hormones to regulate stress. Although there are known diseases of the adrenal glands that require medical attention, adrenal function can be less than 100% without disease due to chronic stress. This can negatively affect human health and performance and can even lead to mental and physical burnout. The main hormones secreted by the adrenal glands are DHEA, cortisol, epinephrine, norepinephrine, and aldosterone.

Cortisol can chronically increase or decrease due to stress negatively impacting health and performance. Elevated cortisol can lead to leptin resistance, blocking your brain’s ability to decrease appetite. Elevated cortisol can suppress the anterior pituitary as well as thyroid hormone conversion to T3, which can cause weight gain. Elevated cortisol can suppress immune function and suppress growth hormone output. Elevated cortisol can lead to brain atrophy, calcium malabsorption, and increased inflammation in the body.

Cortisol can also chronically become depleted due to stress. Low cortisol can cause blood sugar instability leading to depression, fatigue, poor concentration, hormonal imbalances, headaches, panic attacks, and immune deficiencies.

DHEA is an anabolic hormone precursor to sex hormones and is the most comprehensive repair signal in human biochemistry. It is made from pregnenolone (precursor to cortisol and DHEA) and is the most abundant circulating anabolic hormone in the body. Levels naturally decline after the age of 30. Also, DHEA levels naturally decline with stress. DHEA is important for feelings of well-being, improves thyroid function, has anti-cancer activity, and is a powerful stimulus for muscle development, skeletal strength and fat loss. It prevents and reverses osteoporosis, lowers cholesterol, decreases menopausal symptoms, improves fatigue, increases libido, enhances memory, and suppresses inflammation.

EBS energy packs incorporate the use of natural herbal compounds known as adaptogens that support adrenal function, namely Rhodiola rosea, Panaxginseng, and Holy basil leaf. EBS sleep packs incorporate the use of the herbal adaptogen known as Ashwagandha. Herbal adaptogens strengthen the body’s response to physical, mental, and emotional stressors, having positive effects on human health and performance. This science is backed by numerous scientific and clinical studies. The use of the herbal adaptogens found in the EBS line of products is clinically well-established to improve stress hormone levels.
