ATP Cool Down 60 ct (60 Servings)
ATP Lab COOL DOWN is a synergistic combination of science-backed herbal adaptogens and synergistic cofactors that promote relaxation and recovery from physical and psychological stress. Adaptogens are a class of herbs and mushrooms that help the body cope and adapt to stress. Adaptogens increase your state of resistance to stress and decrease your sensitivity to stressors. This results in stress protection.
Stressors come at us in all kinds of ways, but when kept in check (with adequate recovery), they lead to healthy personal, professional, and physical growth/ development. For example, the physical stress of consistent exercise leads to increases in physical strength and endurance. As well, the psychological stress felt in the days leading up to important speaking engagements dampens as you gain experience.
We’ve all heard the saying, “that which does not kill you, makes you stronger”, well this is only partially true. Although the body has a remarkable ability to adapt to stress, it can only do so if there is sufficient recovery between stressful events. Conditions of unmanageable long-term stress, without adequate rest, lead to breakdown of physiological systems and promote chronic anxiety and depressive symptoms that detract from overall health and wellness.
Cool Down was formulated to optimize your body’s stress response:
Whether you are looking to enhance exercise recovery and increase “gains”, optimize resting heart rate variability, keep cortisol down in the evening, decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression, or just chill out after a tough day at work, Cool Down will help you!
Muscle catabolism is an important component of the metabolic response to stress and injury. Heightened sympathetic nervous system activity and cortisol release (a catabolic signal) during exercise breaks down tissues to supply energy substrates that support sustained workload. Although physical stress and catabolism are required stimuli for physical adaptation (gains in strength, power, & muscularity), it is essential to limit such stress to the workout window.
We all experience acute psychological stress from day to day. But, when acute psychological stressors become chronic, we run the risk of cortisol dysregulation, anxiety, insomnia, and depressive symptoms.
