When we work out we not only cause damage to muscles which needs to be repaired, but we also cause stress to our body. Add this on top of the stress of everyday life and you can end up in a situation where your body just can’t keep up, recovery doesn’t occur efficiently and weight piles on. Not to mention sleep is interrupted due to elevated cortisol production. Adrenal Switch by Switch Nutrition helps to provide your body with an “off switch” to down regulate excess cortisol and assist in growth and recovery.
Adrenal Switch contains the perfect blend of natural ingredients to address all the key areas of recovery. Ingredients such as Ashwagandha extract, magnesium citrate, zinc aspartate, B6 and L-Theanine help to regulate cortisol (our stress hormone), increase strength, improve sleep, burn more fat, rebuild muscle and improve performance – and it tastes amazing!
If you can’t recover effectively after a workout you won’t be able to achieve the results you’re striving hard for. The inclusion of L-Leucine switches on protein synthesis and paired with Glycine switches off muscle breakdown to take your recovery to the next level.
Switched On Ingredients
Approximately 75% of the population are magnesium deficient. When you sweat you lose this all important essential mineral so it’s important to replenish your bodies store daily.
Often paired with magnesium, zinc is an essential mineral which is lost in our sweat and essential for gut and thyroid function. Optimal levels of zinc are key to thyroid regulation and in turn, cortisol regulation.
L-Theanine is an amino acid commonly found in tea leaves which helps relaxation without feeling drowsy.
L-Leucine is an amino acid which activates the mTOR pathway, stimulating protein synthesis (meaning it helps you absorb protein). This amino acid taken at the same time as the other ingredients in Adrenal Switch helps take advantage of the lower cortisol levels and increase recovery capacity.
BEFORE BED: Mix one scoop of Adrenal Switch in 300-500mL of water to improve sleep and enhance recovery.
Do not consume more than once in 24hrs to avoid lowering your cortisol levels more than required for optimal function.
