The human body responds to stress by activating the “fight or flight” response, releasing a hormone that activates the adrenal glands, turning some adrenal hormones “on” and others “off”. The hormones that get turned “on” are cortisol, which increases blood sugar for brain and muscle energy, and adrenalin, which increases metabolic rate and heart beat, redirecting blood to the muscles, heart, liver and brain for greater physical strength and performance. Once stress is gone, cortisol and adrenalin should turn “off”, but chronic stress can leave them “on”, preventing the body from recovering and causing cellular damage, blood sugar problems, and adrenal exhaustion.
The Serenity Formula helps relieve chronic stress and anxiety by strengthening the adrenals and improving nerve function. It contains Sensoril®, a patented extract of ashwaganda, which helps “shut off” the stress response and shield against excess cortisol production. The Serenity Formula also contains Siberian ginseng and rhodiola, two highly-regarded adaptogens that help relieve stress and balance neurotransmitters in the brain to improve memory, learning, attention, and sleep. It also contains lavender, traditionally used to treat anxiety, exhaustion and depression.
Stress-Relax Serenity Formula® is a unique mix of adaptogenic herbs designed to promote emotional well-being and to help the body cope with symptoms of stress naturally. It is the ideal formula for those suffering from adrenal exhaustion and other health issues caused by anxiety and chronic daily stress.

Inability to focus, anxiety, fatigue, insomnia, listlessness, and frequent illness can all be indications of stress. When left untreated, chronic stress can cause damaging mental, physical, and emotional “burnout”. The adrenal glands become exhausted, followed by some degree of physical or emotional breakdown.
In addition to minimizing the stress of daily life, nutritional options are available to help restore and rejuvenate the body’s stress-coping systems. Although there is no “quick-fix” for stress, Natural Factors Stress-Relax® Serenity Formula® provides natural herbal help calm down those persistent stress hormones and bring the body back into balance.
