We live in a fast-paced and high-stress world, so is it any wonder that we may feel fatigued, run-down, or burnt out? If your health is one of your top priorities, then it’s important that you support all of your bodily systems, including your overwhelmed adrenal system. At Innovative Medicine in Lafayette, IN, we believe one of the best solutions for chronic fatigue is Isocort, an innovative adrenal cortex extract. Here are the top benefits of this life-changing supplement.
What Are the Benefits of Isocort?
1. Correct Adrenal Fatigue
Adrenal fatigue is a non-medical term that refers to the symptoms of fatigue that is caused by chronic stress from environmental factors. This type of fatigue is usually caused by the feeling of being burnt out by life circumstances, particularly when you have a demanding schedule or spend much of your time taking care of your schedule rather than yourself.
As a theory, adrenal fatigue is the idea that when our adrenal glands are so overwhelmed by everyday demands, the ability to produce stress hormones for normal functioning is compromised and we produce fewer of the hormones we need to get through the day. Further research is still being conducted into adrenal fatigue, although hypoadrenalism is a known symptom of diseases such as Addison’s.
Symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue
The symptoms of adrenal fatigue mostly consist of the basic symptoms of stress-related fatigue. For example, being tired immediately after you wake up in the morning, feeling energy “crashes” throughout the day, and having more energy during the nighttime are all symptoms of a poorly adjusted adrenal system. Other symptoms may include craving sweet or salty foods, having poor memory or concentration, having poor sleep, and having chronically low moods.
2. Plant-Based Product
Previously, Isocort was made with bovine materials, but because research indicates that bovine extracts are not fully compatible with the human system, new supplements have been made from plants and human-compatible synthetic herbs instead. The new plant-based Isocort formula is just as effective as the bovine formula, but it has the added benefit of producing fewer side effects. Of course, because the formula is friendlier to the human body, some patients may find that the results are gentler or may take additional time to be effective.
3. Scientific Treatment
The use of this supplement is grounded in scientific testing. Our patients are only ever prescribed this supplement if they require the supplement for health purposes. We will determine your candidacy for this treatment based on a saliva test, which will verify that you have lower levels of cortisol in your blood than is appropriate for a person of your age, gender, and weight. The cortisol saliva test will ensure that you receive the ideal supplement dosage for your health needs.
4. Allows Adrenals to Rest
The idea behind a supplement such as this one is that it will allow your adrenal system to rest. Because your adrenal system is constantly producing hormones for the body to respond to stress, taking a supplement such as this one will help your body bypass the adrenal system since it provides your body with the stress hormones it needs for daily life.
Taking this supplement is ideal to help your body get through times of stress, such as during big life transitions or health issues. While you are taking this supplement, your adrenal system will be able to take a break so it can produce better hormones when the time of stress has passed. Overall, this means that you are taking stress off of your internal systems.
5. Helps With Mood
Using this supplement may help you regulate your mood, as well as your concentration. Low moods or feeling chronic anxiety are often caused by prolonged stress and poor production of certain hormones, including cortisol. When you can balance the production of these hormones in your body, your mood and cognitive functions will likely improve as well. This is particularly true if the underlying cause of your fatigue is stress-related sleep disturbances, which can leave you tired and poorly responsive during the day.
6. Assists Fat Conversion and Metabolism
One of the key hormones in your metabolism is cortisol and other adrenal hormones that are related to fat conversion. When you take a supplement such as this one, you can help regulate your body’s natural metabolic process and refine the way your metabolism responds to your appetite and digestion.
For example, producing enough hormones in your body will help with your insulin production, which will lower your blood sugar and make it easier to manage your weight, particularly if you are trying to lose weight. In fact, studies indicate that cortisol is a key portion of fat conversion, with people who produce more cortisol being more likely to lose weight.
Restore Your Internal Balance With Isocort
The internal balance of your body is reliant on hormones produced by your adrenal system. When you are fatigued by chronic stress, you will feel symptoms of a slow adrenal system, which can make you feel tired throughout the day and even anxious.
