What other products improve mental and physical energy?
Adrenal Support is our go-to for reinvigorating the body while counteracting everyday stress that worsens fatigue. Additional choices for energy support are Male Performance, Men’s Libido, Women’s Libido and Ocean Minerals. All of these products are high in bioavailable nutrients that encourage and promote the natural function of the endocrine system. They provide a clean energy boost without harsh stimulants.
If you’re more concerned with concentration and mental energy, Crystal Star Focus is a stimulant-free blend that promotes mental clarity, supports memory recall, and helps boost cognitive performance.
I’m under stress from work. What products will help me?
We recommend Relax or Adrenal Support. They both contain herbal nervines which have been used for centuries to encourage normal nervous system functioning. They can also be used as-needed to ease chronic or acute stress symptoms.
The adaptogens like ashwagandha in Relax help to calm anxiety and the Siberian eleuthero in Adrenal Support will help support the body and mind in times of stress.
What’s the story on licorice and blood pressure?
Licorice is a widely studied natural antiviral, female hormone balancer, and adaptogenic herb that can help address stress and adrenal fatigue. It's also commonly used as a complementary herb used in modest amounts in both Western and Eastern herbal blends. in very high doses, the licorice "glycyrrhizin" can cause elevated blood pressure.
Since 1978 Crystal Star has focused on the functional benefits of whole herbs formulated with secondary and tertiary supporting ingredients. The amount of Licorice in Adrenal Support is just a small part of the 15 whole herb formula. However, we don’t recommend any form of licorice for people with a history of renal failure as well as people who are on heart medication or steroid drugs. Please discontinue if you become pregnant.
Can phytoestrogens increase risk for diseases like breast cancer?
While it’s true that some herbs like Dong Quai, Red Clover, and Licorice contain natural phytoestrogens (estrogen-like compounds), there is no credible evidence that moderate intake of these herbs in their whole form will increase your risk for estrogen driven disease, like breast cancer.
Dr. Linda Page combined numerous whole herbs in moderate amounts in the formulas. This type of traditional herbal approach reduces the potential for side effects or reactions, and is a primary reason many herbalists choose to blend herbs rather than use high doses of any one herb. The blended herbs in a moderate concentration act more like a food than a drug in the system. They go through normal digestion and elimination like a food, not building up in the system or burdening the body with potential toxicity.
Still, if you have an estrogen-based health problem, it’s a good idea to talk to your doctor before using herbs that can affect hormone balance. Other products on the market use concentrated sources of phytoestrogens, or may be otherwise inappropriate for your unique health needs.
