Nutrafol Stress Adaptogen
Stress less, grow more.
A blend of standardized stress adaptogens that address stress as a root cause of hair thinning by balancing cortisol, reducing oxidative stress, and modulating immune reactivity known to compromise the hair follicle. A daily complement to Nutrafol Core hair growth formulas for extra stress support.
The root cause
When we’re stressed, our body releases cortisol. Elevated cortisol signals the hair follicle to prematurely shift from growth phase to resting phase.
Recent research suggests that thinning hair is multifactorial and that stress is a common and key root cause. Hair follicles possess their own fully functional HPA axes within the dermis making them targets of stress hormones and immune reactions during peripheral stress responses.
How stress affects your hair
Once the follicle is in resting phase, hair can no longer grow and will eventually shed. Chronic stress can delay or prevent the growth cycle from starting again. It can also disrupt the immune system and hormones, which both play a role in hair growth.
Rhodiola rosea supports the HPA axis, which controls the stress response. Schisandra helps protect the body from the effects of stress. Reishi is a medicinal mushroom that has a calming effect on the mind and body.1-3
