Stress Controlled by Leptin

Stress implies that there is an increased need for energy. Leptin, which is overall in charge of your body's energy spending systems, also regulates your adrenal and nervous system response to stress. When leptin systems work efficiently you have a better ability to tolerate stress, do not feel wired up or exhausted from stress, and do not eat in response to stress.

The heightened rate of metabolic demand from stress naturally produces more inflammatory trash as a byproduct. Like a power boat speeding through the water, the wake (inflammatory trash) is based on how fast you are going. If you are already low on energy, then your power boat is already sputtering. In this case your engines can pour out a lot of black smoke even though you aren't going very fast. Too much inflammatory trash throws a monkey wrench into leptin and thyroid function. Thus, one key aspect of stress-boosting nutrition is to keep making energy in an adequate amount, especially in your nerves, to offset the demands of stress and stay above the inflammatory feeling of wear and tear.*

The nutrients in Stress Helper® (pantethine, acetyl-l-carnitine, and carnosine) help offset the inflammatory burden of stress on your nerves, facilitate a higher level of energy production, and help you burn fat. The triple role these specialty nutrients play can offset wear and tear, reduce mental friction, and help leptin systems cope with demands.*

Pantethine directly supports the function of your adrenal glands, helping you naturally produce cortisol as needed. At the same time, pantethine produces Co-Enzyme A (CoA), an essential molecule that helps your body produce energy and metabolize fats and carbohydrates. Pantethine also assists the production of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a nerve compound that significantly helps improve mood and relieve the feeling of wear and tear.*

Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) helps improve the energetic function of brain cells, supporting the flow of all neurotransmitters, and acting as a nerve antioxidant to buffer stress. It has been shown to promote the natural process of new nerve fiber growth. ALC has been well studied for its beneficial effects on memory and mental task performance. It directly helps cells make energy by enhancing how cells use oxygen to burn calories in the Krebs engines, boosting the function of a vital enzyme called cytochrome c oxidase. It helps with beta oxidation (burning fat for energy).*

Carnosine is a powerful protector of nerves from friction. It is one of the very best anti-irritation nutrients known. It has a general anti-aging and anti-wear and -tear function on numerous systems in your body -- especially nerves.*

  • Stress Helper®

    Stress Helper® provides a critical boost of specialty stress-busting nutrients that significantly help your brain keep up with increased demands and pressure. By stabilizing and supporting the flow of nerve transmission for all your basic neurotransmitters, better mental performance and mood is supported.* Also in the Leptin Control Pack®.

  • PhosphatidylSerine

    Builds highly electrical brain cells, the fastest acting nutrient for short-term memory, focus, and coordination. Helps improve the function of the adrenal based stress response system enabling your core limbic system (including the hypothalamus) to better process stress demands in an appropriate way. Since leptin signals must correctly register in your hypothalamus gland, the more efficiently this gland functions the better leptin can work in your body. Especially helpful for those who have been under long-term stress.*
