ATP Science describes Cort RX as a ‘concentrate of the powerful herbs; Turmeric, Schisandra, Withania and Rhodiola’ and that when you take Cort Rx you are ‘Good as Gold’.
It definitely has a (golden) ring to it.
Cort RX is an adaptogenic herbal formula, designed to improve sleep, lower cortisol, balance the adrenals, improve recovery, reduce inflammation and assist with insulin sensitivity.
Cort RX is designed to assist the body in coping with stress. When we are stressed our body releases cortisol. Long term elevated cortisol levels can be detrimental to health.
ATP Science recommends taking one capsule of Cort RX three times daily with meals. The capsules can also be opened and the contents added to smoothies or sprinkled onto food.
Vegans fear not; the capsules are not gelatin or animal-based, but are instead a vegetable capsule made from hypromellose. And each capsule contains only 1.5 calories.
The capsules are pretty standard in size and a lovely mustard yellow in colour, thanks to the turmeric. They have a mild aroma, which was only really noticeable when I stuck my nose into the container and inhaled. It was a pleasant, sweetly spiced scent.
As for the ingredients, schisandra chinesis offers sedative and anti-anxiety affects; can assist with improving memory and focus; and may benefit the heart, increase blood flow and nitric oxide bioavailability, and aid the liver.
Withania somnifera, more commonly known as ashwagandha, is said to reduce anxiety, lower cortisol levels, and to potentially assist with reducing stress-induced insomnia, immunosuppression and depression. Studies have also shown its ability to increase power output and anaerobic running capacity.
Rhodiola rosea is another herb known for its adaptogenic properties. It is said to significantly reduce the effects of fatigue and improve symptoms of stress. It may also improve cognition, protect the brain against toxins and promote longevity.
Curcumin, the main bioactive component of turmeric, has anti-inflammatory properties and can reduce pain and depression, and promote the production of antioxidants.
These herbs have a lot of potential and are conveniently combined into one neat little capsule. Cort RX is a promising and comforting product, promoting calm, recovery and well-being.
