Stress not only can have a harmful effect on us mentally, but it can also wreak havoc on us physically - including on our waistlines.

TLS ACTS - a supplement for adrenal, cortisol, thyroid and stress support - is a superior supplement for stress as it relates to weight loss, helping stabilize emotional responses to stress and minimize weight gain that is associated with increased stress.

The body's adrenal glands naturally release hormones when we are faced with stress. One such hormone - cortisol - has been shown to increase blood sugar, suppress the immune system, and hinder proper metabolism. If stress levels don't subside, the body can produce excess glucose, which can lead to binge-eating and the body's storage of fat.

Increased cortisol due to stress can also impact your thyroid, which can lead to lethargy and less energy to exercise. The combination of being sedentary, having less energy, and eating chips and cookies makes it seemingly impossible to lose weight. But there is hope thanks to TLS ACTS.

Unlike individual supplements for thyroid function support or supplements for cortisol support, TLS ACTS doesn't mask the problem of weight gain - it addresses the root of the problem by helping your body adapt to stress and assisting you with your weight management goals. Specially formulated with holy basil and ashwagandha, TLS ACTS promotes healthy adrenal gland function, cortisol levels and thyroid function.

Ingredients

Sensoril®/Ashwagandha root extract: 450 mg

Ashwagandha has antioxidant and sedative properties. It has been proven to act as an adaptogen by helping to inhibit occasional fatigue, boost energy, promote emotional well-being and counteract the negative effects of stress. Preliminary evidence suggests ashwagandha helps to regulate stress-induced levels of dopamine receptors in the corpus striatum of the brain. It also appears to promote normal levels of plasma corticosterone, blood urea nitrogen and blood lactic acid. Acting as an adaptogen, ashwagandha reduces stress placed on adrenals to perform, thereby helping to decrease the possibility of adrenal fatigue. Though the exact mechanisms by which ashwagandha works are unknown, one hypothesis is that it functions by way of GABA-mimetic activity which acts independently of GABA receptors. In addition to its adaptogenic properties, ashwagandha may promote normal regulation of thyroid function. It has been shown to promote healthy serum levels of the thyroid hormones triodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine(T4), both of which are important in promoting normal metabolism.  

 

Holy Basil: 375 mg

Holy basil has adaptogenic and calming activities. Research shows holy basil may help to promote normal plasma corticosterone levels and hepatic and renal functions, help maintain normal blood glucose levels and inhibit several other stress-related issues. Though the exact mechanism of action is not known, it is believed that much of holy basil's effect on stress comes from its high content of eugenol, caryophyllene and triterpenoic acids, such as ursolic and oleanolic acids. Studies have shown eugenol to be effective at promoting normal cyclooxygenase 2 (COX 2), an enzyme involved with the inflammatory response. 

L-Theanine: 200 mg

L-Theanine is an amino acid found in green tea and some mushrooms. Preliminary evidence suggests that l-theanine might induce subjective feelings of tranquility in healthy people. It is believed that l-theanine may work by promoting normal levels of the neurotransmitters GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid) and dopamine in the central nervous system. GABA is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter which promotes calimg effects at the cellular level. Dopamine aids in the regulation of many functions within the brain in regards to behavior, cognition, sleep, mood, attention and memory, and is often associated with the "reward" or "pleasure" center of the brain. 

Passion Flower Extract: 200 mg

Passion flower has sedative and relaxation effects. Some studies have pointed to the flavonoids in passion flower such as apigenin, vitexin and isovitexin as the primary constituents responsible for its effects. Research suggests apigenin can bind to central benzodiazepine receptors in the brain, possibly causing relaxation and helping regulate mood without impairing memory or motor skills.

 
Bacopin®(Bacopa monniera Leaf): 150 mg

Bacopa monniera, also referred to as brahmi, has a long history of use in Ayurvedic health for memory enhancement, support of learning and mood enhancement. Constituents of bacopa, specifically bacosides A and B, have been shown to support learning ability, cognitive performance and improve mood. Bacopa also contains the flavonoids apigenin and luteolin. Research suggests apigenin can bind to central benzodiazepine receptors in the brain, possibly causing relaxation and helping regulate mood without impairing memory or motor skills. 

Rhodiola rosea Root Extract: 50 mg

Rhodiola, or roseroot, acts as an antioxidant and adaptogen, promotes relaxation and mental clarity, and helps to improve mood. Research suggests that salidroside, one of over 30 compounds found in rhodiola, is responsible for its stimulating and adaptogenic effects. Within the brain, rhodiola appears to influence the level, activity and transport of monoamine neurotransmitters, such as dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine, and serotonin. Rhodiola has been proposed to promote healthy neurotransmitter levels. 

Iodine: 150 mcg

The most important function of iodine is promoting normal thyroid function and contributing to the body’s normal production of thyroid hormones. Iodine is absolutely crucial in maintaining optimal thyroid health.

Eleuthero Root (Eleutherococcus senticosus) Extract: 100 mg
Research has shown thateleuthero root, also known as Siberian ginseng, has antioxidant, adaptogenic and sedative effects, as well as many others. As an adaptogen, it helps promote the normal regulation of the endocrine system's response to stressors. The activecompounds in eleuthero root, eleutherosides, are believed to stimulate the pituitary-adrenocortical system allowing for more efficient regulation of the stress response and healthy levels of cortisol. Other research suggests that it may help to support feelings of well-being, reduce occasional fatigue and improve memory and cognitive performance.

If I am on a prescription for anxiety, is it safe to use TLS® ACTS Adrenal, Cortisol, Thyroid & Stress Support Formula?
You should consult your doctor before taking any dietary supplement. The ingredients in TLS Adrenal, Cortisol, Thyroid & Stress Support Formula may have side effects, so make sure to contact your doctor before mixing them.

What is the relationship between Cortisol and the Thyroid?
Cortisol levels have a direct relationship with the thyroid, and they act synergistically with one another. Cortisol assists the thyroid hormone in working more efficiently. The correct amount of cortisol – not too high or too low – supports normal thyroid function. When cortisol gets too high, triggered by the adrenal glands' response to unwanted stress, it causes a delayed or absent response from the tissues to the thyroid hormone signal. This absent or delayed response from the tissues causes resistance from the thyroid hormone receptors. When cortisol gets too high, and this resistance occurs, it requires more hormones to create the same effect. That’s why elevated stress, which elevates cortisol levels, leads to a sluggish feeling. The hormones aren’t allowed to work at optimal levels. Every cell in the body has receptors for both cortisol and thyroid and nearly every cellular process requires an optimal functioning thyroid.*  


How does TLS® ACTS Adrenal, Cortisol, Thyroid & Stress Support Formula support weight management?
When our bodies experience stress, we switch into "fight or flight" mode — our body’s response to perceived threat or danger. As a result, our bodies prepare to be sustained by building up "energy" (a.k.a. fat) and strength for the battle. This response used to be beneficial to our ancestors, but now this response can be triggered in not-so-appropriate situations and repetitively. Stress can physically cause us to put on extra weight — and keep it there. Whenever we are under stress, our bodies release certain hormones by the adrenal gland — adrenalin and cortisol, cortisol being the primary stress hormone. Cortisol is a potent signal to do two things — increase appetite and store fat. Increased cortisol in our body tells our brain that we're hungry, while at the same time telling our fat cells to store and hold onto as much fat as they can. TLS Adrenal, Cortisol, Thyroid and Stress Support Formula is a natural dietary supplement designed to help the body adapt to stress, promoting healthy levels of cortisol while enhancing and stabilizing mood, and supporting thyroid function.*

Stress is something that most of us cannot escape; not only does it have a harmful effect on us mentally, but it can also wreak havoc on us physically - including on our waistlines.*

Most products on the market either focus on weight loss or stress. TLS ACTS addresses both, helping your body adapt to stress and helping you reach your weight loss goals. TLS ACTS Adrenal, Cortisol, Thyroid & Stress Support Formula works specifically to promote healthy adrenal gland function, cortisol levels and thyroid function to help control stress levels and minimize stress related weight gain.

Comments about TLS Weight Loss Solution TLS® ACTS Adrenal, Cortisol, Thyroid & Stress Support Formula:

I was taking this product twice a day, but I would become overly exhausted during the day and not able to function as well. I haven't really noticed a difference in weight loss and I been taking this product for 60 days. I recently started taking one pill 30 minutes before I go to bed and it does seem to make me less anxious, while not making me as sleepy. But as for weight loss, no luck yet! I will still continue to take this product simply because it does help with relaxing.
