Integrative Therapeutics Cortisol Manager

cortisol-manager1Difficulty with sleeping, insomnia, restless nights, and non-restorative slumber is sometimes caused by elevated cortisol levels. Cortisol is a "stress" hormone that when elevated is associated with problems concerning learning and memory, immune function, bone density, weight gain, blood pressure, cholesterol, heart disease, depression, mental illness, and lower life expectancy. Cortisol is produced by the adrenal glands in response to stress but is meant to act more on a short-term basis (fight or flight) than a long-term basis (chronic worry). Elevated cortisol levels in the nighttime interfere with the normal sleep cycle. Suppressing high levels of cortisol at bedtime supports an improved sleep quality that is deeper and more restorative. That is the purpose of Cortisol Manager.

Cortisol Manager is not a sedative, it functions to help you stay asleep more than to help you fall asleep.

Integrative medicine is a collaboration of safe and effective therapies from conventional and complementary medicine.

This collaborative, wellness-driven approach often includes clinical nutrition - both through diet, and nutritional supplementation – and that’s where Integrative Therapeutics supplements come in. Integrative Therapeutics is one of the top-tier manufacturers of supplements in use by integrative practitioners today – including naturopathic, chiropractic, nutrition, acupuncture, as well as a variety of general health and specialty practitioners."
