If you’re a coffee lover like me, then odds are you enjoy several cups per day.
And you probably can’t imagine a day where you didn’t partake of your favorite beverage.
Hot or cold.
But let me ask you something…
Have you started to notice that no matter how much coffee you drink, you’re still tired?
Do you find yourself drinking a LOT more coffee than usual?
Well, it could be due to an inappropriate stress response.
In this day and age of fast paced living and 24/7 connection we’re doing a lot more harm to our bodies than we know.
And going through the day being tired is starting to feel normal for a LOT of people.
Think of everything you have to do each day. It’s a lot!
But are you burning yourself out?
According to some health experts you are.
And by pushing your body to the limit and not paying attention to your natural body rhythms you could be putting your health at risk.
Dr Michael Miller, editor and chief
of the Harvard Mental Health Letter says:
“Many people are unable to find a way to put the brakes on stress.”
And as you probably know, coffee is often used as a functional beverage due to its abundance of caffeine and natural antioxidants.
In fact, there is a lot of scientific evidence that supports the benefits of coffee.
Studies show that it can protect your liver, enhance physical performance, support cognitive function,balance blood sugar, improve heart health and it even help burn fat…
The question is…
Does the caffeine in coffee trigger our innate stress response excessively and if it does, should we be worried?
There’s a lot of talk these days within the health community about the impact that stress has on our health.
Chronic stress can be extremely damaging to the body in a variety of ways.
It can compromise your immune system, cause weight gain,increase inflammation,cause depression, insomnia, digestive issues, hormone imbalances and ruin your blood sugar.
That’s why reducing the effects of stress on your body can work wonders for your health.
And the good news?
Coffee may be more helpful than harmful.
You see, what most people don’t know is that enjoying high quality, premium coffee can actually help you deal with stress.
That’s because, much of the increase in the stress response associated with coffee intake is potentially due to mycotoxins found in some coffee and the inflammation they cause.
Not necessarily the caffeine.
Truth is, coffee has many beneficial compounds and should be seen as more than just a beverage that contains caffeine.
But what can we do about stress?
You’ve probably heard of the adrenal glands and how they’re associated with what's known as the fight or flight response.
The adrenal glands work closely with the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland in a system known as the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA axis).
This system helps to regulate the stress response through its release of various hormones including cortisol.
Cortisol is normally produced throughout the day in a specific pattern.
And it’s usually higher in the morning when we wake up and declines gradually as the day goes on with it being lowest when we sleep.
As you can imagine, this cycle is critical in maintaining optimal body function and maintaining your energy.
It’s a lot like the master computers you see in cars these days.
These computers regulate all of your cars functions and keeps tabs on how things are running…
However, when we’re constantly under stress from work, at home or simply due to our fast paced lifestyle our adrenal glands constantly pump out cortisol.
This can lead to a condition known as adrenal fatigue.
And adrenal fatigue can lead to inconsistent levels of cortisol in the bloodstream, sometimes far more than normal and at other times, far too low.
In addition to this overload or improper cortisol level, people with adrenal fatigue often don’t have enough DHEA, the “parent hormone” responsible for the creation of many necessary hormones in the body.
Common symptoms of adrenal fatigue include being tired, lacking energy, and sleeping all day long, which of course is one of the reasons so many people drink coffee.
But even with all of the health benefits associated with coffee some health experts still think that the caffeine in coffee may be a contributing factor to adrenal fatigue.
Especially when your stress levels are already high.
In fact, multiple studies have shown that caffeine increases stress hormones like cortisol in the body both at rest and during stress for those under increased levels of stress.
And going back to the car analogy, when this happens it’s a lot like trying to fill your gas tank when it’s already full.
All that extra gas just spills out all over you, your car and onto the ground.
Whereas the extra cortisol is dumped into your bloodstream where it can spread throughout your body and cause all kinds of damage.
Think about it. What would happen if there’s a spark from static electricity, or you light a cigarette with all that gas spilled all over?
It’s gonna cause A LOT of damage.
And the same thing goes for that excess cortisol in your body.
But the good news is…
There is a way to protect yourself from the effects of too much cortisol.
In fact, there’s a way you can even continue drinking coffee without it causing a rise in cortisol levels.
If you can nourish, feed and heal your adrenal glands and keep the HPA axis primed…
You can drink all the healthy, delicious coffee you want.
Caffeine and all.
See, there are certain herbs and nutrients that can help to fight adrenal fatigue.
They’re called adaptogens.
And research suggests that adaptogenic herbs may help to lower cortisol levels and help to mediate stress responses within the body.
You can think of them as little mechanics…
Always working to keep things running smoothly by keeping your stress response in check.
By using these herbs, you can alleviate some of the strain on your adrenal glands leading to a more appropriate stress response.
Fortunately, some of the world's best doctors and health experts have already discovered which herbs and nutrients work best to support adrenal function and put them into one incredible formula.
It’s the same formula that allowed Russian gymnast Olga Korbut to win the gold-medal in 1972.
It’s also the same formula that has helped thousands of patients beat "hopeless fatigue" and restore their depleted energy levels…
It’s called HPAdapt™ and top health experts confirm that the ingredients in HPAdapt™ support healthy adrenal glands and encourage a normal stress response.
They help anyone deal more effectively with stress while staying healthy and energetic.
Right now you can try this incredible formula for yourself completely risk FREE and maintain a healthy stress response no matter what the day brings.
And do it all while STILL enjoying your coffee.
So the way I see it, you’ve got 2 options to finally experience the energy you deserve.
You can try to lower your stress by changing your lifestyle...
Taking on less at work and at home, which for most people is almost impossible.
... Or you can take advantage of new medical research by giving your body all of the natural support it needs to protect your adrenal glands and your health from the damaging effects of stress.
Which is going to be easier for you?
