ATP Science Cort RX is the long awaited adrenal cortex support supplement manufactured by Australian health science company ATP Science.
ATP Science Cort RX uses a unique blend of adaptogens and herbs that help the body adapt to external stress. In particular, Cort RX takes the burden off the adrenal gland and helps to restore healthy cortisol levels.
Hyper secretion of cortisol is fast becoming a 21st-century epidemic due to the psychological perception of stress from work, finances, electronic devices and less obvious physical stressors such as chronic pain, inflammation, allergies and the abuse of heavily caffeinated beverages.
ATP Science Cort RX uses precise adaptogenic herbs to restore cortisol and normalize physiology, stimulating energy levels during periods of fatigue and promoting restfulness during times of stress.

ATP Science Cort RX has been developed by naturopath and head formulator of ATP Science supplements, Matt Legge. Matt’s background in naturopathic medicine is reflected in the unique and uncommon adaptogenic herbs found in ATP Science Cort RX.
As with the majority of ATP Science supplements, Cort RX is in capsule form, with each bottle containing 90 capsules with a recommended dosage of 1 capsule taken three times daily. Each 500mg capsule contains the ATP Science Cort RX blend comprising Schisandra Chinensis Berry Extract, Withania Somnifera Extract, Rhodiola Rosea extract and Curcuma Longa Extract.
Schisandra Chinensis is the first adaptogenic herb included in ATP Science Cort RX. This adaptogenic herb works in synergy with the body assisting it to adapt to physical and mental stress. Schisandra is the berry of a climbing vine native to north-west China and has long been known for its antioxidant properties and ability to protect cells against damaging free radicals that spawn as a result of pollutants, radiation, chemicals and even poor diet and nutrition.
As an adaptogen, Schisandra works to increase physical working capacity, decrease fatigue and counter stress by restoring cortisol levels, resulting in reduced anxiety, increased performance and improved sleep and recovery. Schisandra Chinensis in ATP Science Cort RX also contributes to improvements in cognition as it actively inhibits the acetylcholinesterase enzyme responsible for the break down of acetylcholine; the organic chemical that increases brain activity.
In addition to Schisandra, ATP Science Cort RX also includes one of the most commonly used and studied adaptogens, Withania Somnifera, most commonly referred to as the Ashwaganda herb. Withania Somnifera effectively switches off the nervous system’s stress response and boosts the parasympathetic nervous system to support recovery and immune function. The main function of Withania Somnifera in ATP Science Cort RX is to help users deal efficiently with daily stress by switching off the survival response, sparing the adrenal gland and supporting the emotional aspects of nervous system exhaustion such as panic, anxiety and depression.
This balancing effect on mood, energy and stress are further enhanced in ATP Science Cort RX with the addition of Rhodiola Rosea. Rhodiola primarily works through its effect on neuro-transmission including serotonin, dopamine and adrenaline modulation. Additionally the Rhodiola Rosea extract in Cort RX is an effective anti-catabolic, protecting against muscle protein breakdown whilst also providing anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties.
The final ingredient in ATP Science Cort RX is the ancient herb Turmeric (listed as Curcuma Longa Extract), undoubtedly one of the best natural remedies to address some of the biggest drivers of disease in modern society, namely inflammation, oxidation and toxicity. Turmeric contains curcuminoids that have the powerful effect of safely and naturally dampening down the body’s defence mechanisms which would otherwise be treated by more intrusive sedatives or antidepressant drugs. In essence, the Turmeric found in ATP Science Cort RX reduces both the frequency and intensity of our survival response, providing adrenalin and cortisol sparring properties.
Taste & Mixability
The active ingredients in ATP Science Cort RX are contained in capsule form which provides users with a simple, no-fuss product that can easily be introduced into any daily supplement regime.
In the 21st-century everyone finds themselves dealing with some form of physical or mental stress that can interfere with the proper functioning of the body, interfering with fat burning, creating testosterone, and recovering from physical exercise. ATP Science Cort RX provides a new age solution that balances out cortisol and adrenal levels within a healthy range.
ATP Science Cort RX has been developed to work synergistically with the entire ATP Science product range. Cort RX is the perfect supplement addition for those suffering from prolonged exposure to physical and psychological stress and is particularly useful for individuals who consume high amounts of stimulants (caffeine) that may have pushed them to the point of adrenal exhaustion.
