Seriphos is a safe, natural supplement that helps control and modulate the stress response. It is a combination of phosphorylated serine, choline, and ethanolamine molecules (phospholipids), combined with magnesium and calcium.
Seriphos helps our cells remodel and changes our responsiveness to stress hormone triggers. It helps quiet anxiety, the “wired” feeling, palpitations, sweats, etc. It is also helpful in treating insomnia, which comes from the same cause. Seriphos is especially beneficial to patients whose cortisol levels are elevated, but it can be used in other situations, as well.
Seriphos helps reduce elevated cortisol levels and balance erratic cortisol levels during times of stress. It is useful in the treatment of insomnia—a common complaint of most Adrenal Dysfunction patients—because it assists with balancing erratic sleep/wake cycles by balancing cortisol. It is especially useful in reducing the evening cortisol levels, elevation of which is a common pattern in Adrenal Dysfunction.
Research suggests that Seriphos works at the pituitary level, blunting the stimulation of the pituitary gland on the adrenal glands, thus calming the Hypothalamic Pituitary Adrenal Axis. We also know that phosphorylated serine acts to stabilize cell membranes in these and other glands, making the glands less susceptible to over-stimulation.
Our stress response system is constantly activated in our fast-paced world. What many do not know is that our stress response system itself can be damaged over time. Adrenal Fatigue is a hormone disorder hallmarked by a weakened and erratic stress response system. The major player in our stress response is the endocrine (hormone) system, particularly the adrenal glands, and the stress hormone cortisol. In the early and middle stages of Adrenal Fatigue, cortisol levels can become elevated or erratic from perpetual stress response activation; patients of this nature are good candidates for Seriphos.
