COOL DOWN, by ATP Lab, is the result of a combination of adaptogenic plants
with scientifically proven properties and synergistic cofactors that promote
relaxation and recovery after being subjected to physical stress
and psychological. Adaptogens form a class of herbs and fungi
that help the body cope with and adapt to stress. Adaptogens improve
your ability to deal with stress and reduce your sensitivity to factors
of stress. As a result, you get stress protection.
Stressors come from all directions, but when well controlled
(with proper recovery), they can lead to healthy growth/
personal, professional and physical development. For example, stress
physique caused by regular exercise leads to an improvement
strength and endurance. Similarly, psychological stress
what it feels like to approach a public speaking session decreases over time
when you gain experience.
We've all heard the expression, "What doesn't kill us makes us stronger."
Well, that's only partly true. If the body possesses a remarkable capacity
adaptation to stress, he can only succeed if he has the necessary conditions
to recover adequately between two stressful events.
Uncontrollable conditions of long-term stress, without adequate recovery,
lead to physical exhaustion and result in chronic anxiety as well as
symptoms of depression that affect overall health and well-being.
Cool Down has been designed to optimize your reaction to stress:
Whether you're looking to improve your exercise recovery and improve your "gains",
optimize your resting heart rate variability, maintain your heart rate
low cortisol in the evening, reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression
or simply to relax after a hard day's work, Cool Down will help you!
Muscle catabolism is an important part of the metabolic reaction
to stress or injury. Increased sympathetic nervous system activity
and the production of cortisol (a catabolic signal) during exercise results in
decomposition of tissues to provide sufficient energy for accomplishment
of the workload. Although physical stress and catabolism are
necessary for the adaptation process (gains in strength, power and tone
muscle), it is essential to limit exposure to stress to the expected period
We all face episodes of acute psychological stress
daily. But when acute stressors become chronic,
we put ourselves at risk of a dysregulation of the cortisol level or of suffering from anxiety,
insomnia and symptoms of depression.
Adults: Take two capsules, once daily,
Duration of use : For prolonged use, consult a physician.
Contraindications: Do not consume this product if you suffer

• Cool Down acts in synergy with AdrenRGY AM by ATP Lab:
For best results, take 3 capsules of AdrenRGY AM
at breakfast in addition to the Cool Down (follow the dosage instructions
L-theanine 112.5 mg:
L-theanine is an amino acid similar to L-glutamate and L-glutamine
and it is mainly found in herbs and mushrooms. She penetrates
easily crosses the blood-brain barrier and has been shown to benefit mood
and its ability to improve intellectual performance. She is better known
to promote anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) and relaxing effects without causing
As a substance similar to L-glutamate, L-theanine inhibits the process
allowing glutamic acids to attach to glutamate receptors
in the brain. Thus, L-theanine exhibits anti-stress effects through inhibition
neuronal excitation. Studies on human subjects show that a
oral consumption of L-theanine decreases anxiety and alleviates the rise
blood pressure associated with stress. All this by limiting mainly
activation of the sympathetic nervous system. In general, L-theanine
optimizes the levels of dopamine, serotonin and GABA, allowing
stabilize mood and improve sleep quality.
Relora® (Magnolia officinalis 93,75mg & Phellodendron amurense 31,25mg):
Research has shown that the patented formula of Relora®, composed of magnolia
and phellodendron bark, significantly improves mood in men
and women exposed to moderate stress. In a placebo-controlled study,
researchers reported that stress-exposed subjects given Relora®
showed a 42% decrease in anger; 13% voltage; by 20%
depression; 31% fatigue; and 27% less confusion. They displayed
also an 18% increase in vigor and an 11% improvement in their mood.
To top it off, the researchers observed an 18% drop in the rate
of cortisol in saliva following Relora® supplementation. In summary,
with Relora®, you not only get an overall improvement in your mood, but also an improvement in your hormonal response to stress.
Melissa officinalis (Lemon Balm 5:1) 100mg (500mg potency):
We have included a quality lemon balm extract (Melissa officinalis)
pharmaceutical (5x concentration), which has properties that can improve
intellectual performance, mood, and reduce sensitivity to stress.
It also causes an anxiolytic effect in humans. Our lemon balm extract
Pharmaceutical grade lemongrass contains high levels of rosmarinic acids,
ursolic and oleanolic, which inhibit the catabolism (breakdown) of acid
gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA), allowing an increase in GABA levels
in the brain. Targeting the GABA regulatory system in the brain constitutes
a great strategy to prevent and treat anxiety and its symptoms
such as restlessness and insomnia.
Holy Basil (Ocimum tenuiflorum 100:1) 125mg (12mg Potency):
In the Cool Down formula, we've included 125 mg of 100:1 concentrated extract
of Ocimum tenuiflorum, also known as holy basil. This quality extract
pharmaceutical has the potency of 12 mg (500 g) of holy basil.
Based on data from preclinical studies in human subjects, such a dosage
has neuroprotective, cognitive-boosting and reduction properties
Ashwagandha KSM-66® (Withania somnifera) 100mg:
KSM-66 is a patented pharmaceutical grade formula based on Ashwagandha
or Indian ginseng. It is a commonly used flowering perennial shrub
in Ayurveda, traditional Indian medicine. According to the results
several randomized double-blind clinical studies on human subjects,
KSM-66 ashwagandha has been shown to help reduce stress, anxiety,
cortisol levels and improve sleep quality. At the same time, KSM-66
has been shown to curb stress-related cravings, improve memory
and cognitive function, support endurance, strength, muscle growth,
muscle recovery, as well as sexual health for men and women.
5-Hydroxy-L-tryptophan 25mg (5-htp; Griffonia simplicifolia):
5-Hydroxy-L-tryptophan is an amino acid direct precursor of serotonin
in the central nervous system. Serotonin is an essential neurotransmitter
in the control of mood, sleep, motivation and appetite.
Consuming 5-HTP supplements has been shown to have the effect
increase serotonin levels leading to decreased appetite,
improved mood and better deep sleep.
Active vitamins for stress management - Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxal 5'phosphate) 5mg, niacinamide (vitamin B3) 5 mg, folic acid vitamin B9
(L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate) 400 mcg, Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin) 400 mcg)
Healthy levels of vitamins and minerals are essential for good functions
cognition and general well-being. Prolonged exposure to stress,
whether it is the result of psychological or physical factors such as malnutrition,
surgery, environmental toxins, overtraining, deprivation
of sleep or a host of other elements, leads to systemic effects
predictable. These include high levels of stress hormones like
cortisol, the decline of certain functions of the immune system such as cells
NK (natural killer) and cytotoxic or secretory IgA levels,
in addition to a disturbance of the intestinal flora.
According to studies conducted in human and animal subjects, this assembly
vitamins work synergistically with adaptogens to support healthy
function of the adrenal glands, contribute to a production
optimal cortisol and catecholamine levels under exposure
prolonged under stress.
