Prevent cortisol production from cannibalizing muscle tissue
Hard training is the only real way to make continuous improvements in any sport, whether it’s speed, strength, or muscle size you’re after. That same training intensity that eventually makes you excel can also cause an increase in cortisol, a gain-reducing catabolic hormone that can break down muscle and block protein synthesis. Compound those effects with increased cortisol levels from other sources of stress, and your progress can be fully stalled.
CORTSTAT is a potent formula that reduces cortisol to preserve muscle tissue after workouts and protects all your hard-earned work from cannibalization. Phosphatidylserine (SerinAid), the main ingredient, is proven to decrease cortisol levels. Decreased cortisol means greater amino acid utilization for enhanced nitrogen retention, glycogen synthesis, and protein synthesis. Phosphatidylserine also aids in memory retention, so it can help you excel physically and mentally.
The Alanyl-L-Glutamine Dipeptide (GlutaDiPEP) in CORTSTAT not only stimulates glycogen synthesis and inhibits muscle breakdown similar to Phosphatidylserine, it also works on multiple levels to rehydrate your cells and provide your body with sustained energy to truly maximize performance. This easily-absorbed dipeptide increases nutrient absorption and supports a healthy immune system to further keep cortisol levels in check.
CORTSTAT is a highly effective defense system against post-workout muscle wasting from intense training while also maximizing muscle repair and growth. It’s nutritional muscle insurance.
Q: I’ve been super stressed from work, and I’ve been dieting to get in better shape. It seems like a bad combo, because I seem to just be getting smaller instead of leaner. Should I just increase my protein intake, or should I use this instead?
A: You’re right, daily stress on its own is bad enough, but it can be compounded when you’re also on a low-calorie diet. Increasing your protein intake could probably help, but that could affect your daily calories and wouldn’t decrease the effects of stress. CortStat can actually decrease cortisol production to reduce the effects you’re experiencing and prevent muscle loss. It can also increase your ability to utilize the amino acids in your diet, making the protein you do eat that much more effective.*
Q: I’m a student and I have a part-time job, so my ability to focus on either one of those has become tough. Plus, I try to exercise regularly, but it almost feels like that’s just adding too much too my plate. I’ve heard that this can help with memory and mental focus, is that true?
A: Yes, one of the key ingredients in CortStat, phosphatidylserine, was first recognized for its ability to help with memory and focus in stressful situations. Decreased cortisol can help greatly with memory retention, and it means your exercise program will add to your health rather than increase the negative effects of stress.*
