Why Dr. Sheryl Recommends This Supplement for Stress and Fatigue
Chronic constant stress is a real problem in today’s society. Your body was made to handle short-term stress 10 to 20 minutes with out a problem but when we are subject to chronic prolonged stress the adrenal glands can become fatigued. You may have heard of the term Adrenal Exhaustion. Under prolonged stress the adrenals glands will produce excess cortisol levels this can play havoc on the entire endocrine system including the thyroid. Cortisol levels also have a direct relationship with the thyroid, and the adrenal glands as they act synergistically with one another. Cortisol assists the thyroid hormone in working more efficiently, and 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 elevated stress, it causes a delayed response to the thyroid hormone receptors. When this occurs, the hormones aren’t allowed to work at optimal levels, leaving you feeling sluggish, tired and affecting your metabolism. The imbalance of cortisol levels can also be the root cause of weight gain.
Symptoms of Adrenal exhaustion:
- Sleep difficulties (waking up during the middle of the night)
- Tired during the day and come to life ~11pm
- Weight gain especially visceral fat (fat around the belly and hips)
- Hormone Imbalance
- Weakened immunity
- Decreased muscle tone and strength
- Decreased cognitive functioning
- Insulin resistance
- E-D (Erectile Dysfunction)
What most people turn to stimulates like coffee, sodas and medication that will only cause the adrenals to become even more exhausted. It’s like beating a tried horse eventually the horse just gives out. The solution is to feed and nourish both adrenals glands and Thyroid with keys nutrients called adaptogens (herbs that work synergistically to allowing the body to appropriately respond to stress). See Ingredient Details
Unlike stress-relief formulas, which may simply work to tranquilize, the ACTS formula functions as an adaptogen. TLS ACTS helps to balance excess cortisol levels supporting both adrenal and thyroid function.
As a naturopathic doctor I have used many herbal formulas over the years to help my patients deal with stress. What I love about the ACTS formula is has so many of the individual herbs that I have used like Ashwagandha root, Passion Flower Extract & Holy Basil. Having this comprehensive formula works great and is much easer and less expensive that buying them individually. I would like to also suggest that exercise should be a part of everyone’s lifestyle as it can relieve stress and help to balance the cortisol levels as well.

“I am a personal trainer and weight management coach. I personally have used the TLS ACTS formula with great success with many of my clients. I have seen it make a difference in their energy, mood and weight loss as well as helping improve sleep. I have a lot of clients who are going thru menopause and this formula has helped along with the use of Activated B-Complex. Depending on the severity I have used 2 ACTS capsules with 1 cap of the Isotonix B-Complex two times per day. When the hormones are out of balance it is near impossible to help my clients reach their weight loss goals. The ACTS formula works quickly and starts to stabilize the cortisol levels and allows my clients to get the rest they need to both get healthy and achieve there weight loss goals.”
Recommended Complementary Products for Stress & Fatigue
nutraMetrix® Isotonix® Activated B-Complex
It is B vitamins that feed the nervous system. A lack of vitamin B in your regimen may impact your physical health in different ways. B Vitamins are meagerly supplied in the American diet along with the fact that sugar destroys our B vitamins as well. Hundreds of biochemical reactions in the body are supported by B-vitamins, and vitamin B deficiency can lead to fatigue and lethargy. A B-complex vitamin is one component of eight essential B-vitamins that are critical to metabolism at the cellular level. Taking a activated form of B-complex can help to maintain healthy levels of serotonin, increase energy and decrease stress.
However, some B-vitamins, such as B6, B12 and folic acid, must undergo chemical changes before they can be utilized by the body. Some people genetically do not break down these 3 key B vitamins. This is why it is important to use an Activated from. I feel an Activated form of B-Complex should be a part of everyone’s daily routine due to the deficiency in our diet especially those dealing with high levels of stress and adrenal fatigue.
nutraMetrix Isotonix Activated B-Complex delivers metabolically active forms of several vitamins and minerals in isotonic form, ensuring that your body receives and uses vital nutrients quickly and efficiently.
Isotonic, which means “same pressure,” bears the same chemical resemblance of the body’s blood, plasma and tears. All fluids in the body have a certain concentration, referred to as osmotic pressure. The body’s common osmotic pressure, which is isotonic, allows a consistent maintenance of body tissues. In order for a substance to be absorbed and used in the body’s metabolism, it must be transported in an isotonic state.

“I can tell you that I used Dreamz because I was lucky if I was getting 4 hours each night. I took it about 30 minutes prior to going to bed. I fell asleep quickly and if I woke up in the middle of the night to do the potty thing, when I went back to bed I fell back asleep right away and woke up fully refreshed. After about 5 nights of using Dreamz, I no longer have to take it and have no problems sleeping. I am taking the Isotonix Multi-Tech and OPC-3 and I believe that that is helping as well. I started taking all 3 products right around the same time.”
