High-stress lifestyles are known to push the stress response system into overdrive, often leading to a rise in levels of the hormone cortisol. While small amounts of cortisol are essential for health and survival, an overproduction of cortisol can ultimately cause the depletion of certain hormones and their precursors (including pregnenolone, DHEA and progesterone), along with a depleted production of cortisol itself, which can lead to low energy levels and fatigue.
Licorice root extract is well-documented for its ability to strengthen the body’s stress response and support healthy energy levels. The botanical extract contains a number of active compounds that promote hormone balance, support immune function and support the body’s resistance to fatigue. This liquid formulation of Licorice Root allows for flexible dosing throughout the day to accommodate a range of protocols.
