We’ve all faced an adrenaline inducing situation at least once in our lives – whether that be tackling a fear of heights, speaking in front of a large audience or even something simple like visiting the dentist. Despite our best efforts to avoid these situations, it is inevitable that sooner or later we will find ourselves facing an old or new fear. These events can bring about many emotions and feelings, most notably a sensation to run for the hills, and a sudden bolt of energy to quite literally ‘bolt for it’.
However, what if your causes of stress were simply being stuck in gridlock traffic on your morning commute or preparing a lovely dinner for your partners very opinionated parents. It may even be recovering from a very intense leg day at the gym.
At Athletic Sport, we are a team who each have our own unique stressors and fears. This means that we know and understand that not every day will be filled with large scale stressors such as bungee jumping in New Zealand. Instead, it can be a whole lot of mini stressors ranging from work, family, and lifestyle factors. These mini stressors can add up and ultimately have just as much of an impact on your body and mind.
Let’s dive a little deeper into what causes the sensation known as ‘fight or flight’. Say hello to your adrenal glands, although they may be small oh boy are they mighty. Found just above the kidneys, the adrenal glands are made up of two primary parts, the cortex and medulla. These glands work hard to produce hormones to regulate metabolism, maintain healthy blood pressure and even ensure that your immune system is on top of its game. Any increase in any of these factors, such as the ones felt in response to strong emotions cause adrenaline aka epinephrine to be released into the bloodstream. Which causes an almost instantaneous increase in strength, sugar metabolism as well as your heartrate. The bigger the stress, the more you’ll feel the sensation of butterflies in your tummy and a sudden rush of energy. These fluctuations in hormones from stressors can leave you feeling lethargic, run down, and finding it difficult to keep up with the demands of your day-to-day life.
At Athletic Sport, we pride ourselves on creating products to give you the extra hand to get through all your day, not just gym. This is where our Adrenal Cort comes into play. Adrenal Cort works as an anti-inflammatory, enabling your body to recover and repair faster from exercise as well as working long hours. It also has all the benefits of a warm hug from your mum, helping you to switch off and relax at the end of each day. We have designed it as a capsule to fit in easily into your everyday life, making it portable so you can take it with you on the go, or leave it in the office, your gym bag or in the kitchen at home.
Adaptogens are our superstar ingredient! These are nothing new, in fact they originated centuries ago in Ayurvedic and Chinese healing traditions. Adaptogens as the name suggests, help your body to adapt. These truly shine on a molecular level helping to balance out and regulate the stress, ultimately restoring balance and harmony within our hypothalamic, pituitary, and adrenal glands. This means that your body can handle any new stresses thrown its way for a longer period, whether it be in the gym, family commitments or part of your 9-5.
We’ve harnessed the benefits of adaptogens and added them to our Adrenal Cort including Holy basil to enhance athletic performance and the ‘King of Herbs ‘in Ayurvedic medicine Ashwagandha. Ashwagandha helps to balance cortisol in the body, which regulates the sleep and wake cycle. This ensures that you wake up each morning refreshed. We’ve also added Magnolia to help you unwind and relax, Turmeric to reduce and prevent inflammation, as well as improving your heart health. And L-theanine to help improve your focus and help you reach your potential in all aspects of your life.
