Let's bridge the gap between health and humanity
We believe in the power of the body's ability to heal the individual, and that medication and surgery should be a last resort. The products and services we provide are designed to give the body what it needs to thrive, heal and repair naturally. We do this by integrating natural health and objective, research-backed education to provide people with everything their bodies need to operate at maximum potential.
The most important step in achieving our mission is to deliver proper health and nutritional education to the public. Unfortunately, public school health education is decades behind, and medical schooling tends to avoid nutritional education in order to test the theories behind the efficacy of pharmaceuticals in isolation.
We choose our products carefully and research them thoroughly before releasing to the public. If you choose not to start your health journey with UMZU, we still encourage you to browse the educational pieces below. The more you understand about your body, the better you will be able to take control of your own health.
The Fight or Flight Response
When you feel threatened, your nervous system triggers your fight or flight response, releasing the stress hormone cortisol into your body, preparing you to encounter the danger at hand. Your nervous system isn’t very good at distinguishing between emotional and physical stress. A work deadline, mountain of bills, or relationship problem can trigger this response.
The Stress Feedback Loop
Each time the flight or flight response gets triggered, it becomes more easily triggered the next time. If you tend to get stressed out frequently, like many of us in today’s demanding world, you may exist in a heightened state of stress most of the time.
Since being stressed today makes it easier for you to become more stressed tomorrow, this creates a “negative feedback loop” of stress, and can leave you feeling like you’re spiraling out of control.
The Impact of Chronic Stress
Chronic existence of cortisol in the brain disrupts nearly every system in the body. It can suppress your immune system, upset your digestive and reproductive systems and speed up the aging process. Furthermore, cortisol can even rewire the brain, leaving you more vulnerable to anxiety, depression and other mental health problems.
How can a Supplement Help with Stress?
Cortigon fights against cortisol production, lowering the damage caused by the fight or flight response. Cortigon may not only help you fight chronic stress, but improve the health of all bodily systems that are impacted by heightened cortisol.

What is stress?
The Oxford dictionary defines stress as “a state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances.”
Stress can mean different things to different people. Typically, stress involves feeling overwhelmed or worrying excessively about something. In some cases, stress can be associated with emotional or mental strain. Stress may be short-lived, such as being stressed out about a test or a public speaking engagement, or it can last for months, such as the stress associated with financial hardship.
In some cases, stress is associated with a specific stressor, and in other cases, you may not be able to tell exactly what is causing you to feel stressed. You may consider something stressful that somebody else does not and somebody else might consider something stressful that you do not.
Many times stress is personal and private, but some people may choose to talk openly about their stress. The important thing to remember is that if stress builds up so much that it is impacting your everyday life, you may benefit from talking to a healthcare or behavioral health (psychologist, social worker, etc.) professional about your stress.
What are the symptoms of stress?
Just like stress is different for everybody, the symptoms of stress may be different for everybody. Often, stress just involves excessive preoccupation of the mind. However, stress can also induce physical symptoms such as sweating, racing heartbeat (palpitations), shortness of breath, shaky voice, or feeling “jittery.”
You may also have a headache, abdominal discomfort, or need to cry. Some people may not have any physical manifestations of their stress at all. Other people may experience these symptoms so intensely that it is considered a panic attack.
The important thing to remember is that if any of the symptoms you experience are impacting your life in a negative way, you may benefit from talking to a healthcare or behavioral health (psychologist, social worker, etc.) professional about your stress.
What are anxiety disorders?
While stress can be thought of as an emotion, there are also medical diagnoses known as anxiety disorders. The main anxiety disorders are generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), social phobia, and other specific phobias. Each of these conditions is associated with its own symptoms and has its own diagnostic criteria. Diagnosed anxiety disorders are often persistent and interfere with everyday life.
The proper treatment of a diagnosed anxiety disorder may involve lifestyle modification, medication, therapy, or a combination of these. If you do suffer from a diagnosed anxiety disorder or you think you may have an anxiety disorder, this supplement is not a treatment for your condition.
What is cortisol?
Cortisol is often referred to as the “stress hormone.” It is a type of molecule known as a glucocorticoid and it is created and released by the body’s adrenal glands. This happens in response to another hormone that is secreted from the brain and is known as ACTH. Cortisol increases in times of stress and has numerous actions around the body, including raising blood sugar levels and making your brain better at utilizing that glucose. Cortisol is one of the hormones that gets released during the body’s “fight or flight” response, which is the natural reaction to an acute stressor. Having a normal cortisol response is a good thing. And even without stress, cortisol is necessary for life. Having abnormally high or abnormally low cortisol levels, however, is associated with disease states.
In studies, cortisol levels are often used as a surrogate for subjective feelings of stress, however this is not always accurate. In some cases, elevated cortisol levels may be associated with chronic stress but in other cases, cortisol levels are raised independently of psychological stress.
Why did UMZU choose the ingredients in Cortigon?
Roman’s Stress Relief supplement is a mix of three six ingredients, including B-Vitamins, Gingko biloba, and phosphatidylserine. UMZU chose these ingredients because each has individually been shown to have beneficial effects in some studies. These include improving stress scores, mood, cortisol levels, and specific measures of athletic performance. In some cases, the evidence is limited because studies have only been done in small human clinical trials. And in other cases, these effects were only noted in specific populations. All ingredients are generally well tolerated and are also associated with other beneficial effects, such as supporting testosterone levels and improving fatigue and cognition. Cortigon isn’t intended to treat a diagnosed anxiety disorder and isn’t a substitute for treatments prescribed by your healthcare provider.
How do I use Cortigon?
You have a few options when taking Cortigon, depending on the purpose behind usage:
Option 1: Relieve Daily Stress
Take 1 capsule in the morning.
Option 2: Need to Focus on Important Tasks?
Take up to 3 capsules of Cortigon for a noticeable increase in focus and mental clarity.

This is the second month that I started taking it and I absolutely love it . Around the second week is when I started to notice a huge change in my mood . I felt as though nothing could phase me or stress me out . For example , I got pulled over by a freaking cop and he gave me a speeding ticket and I didn’t get jittery or nervous like I usually do (not saying a get pulled over often) but I was very calm and even shook his hand and said thank you RIGHT after he just gave me a ticket ! As far memory and focus , I felt like a freakin super computer when it came to getting stuff done . Thank you for this product ! I can’t wait to see how the rest of the second and third month on this product will affect my mood.
I drive a lot for my job and I was noticing that every morning thanks to traffic, stressed out clients, and generally ****** drivers, I was starting my day with a giant wave of cortisol and was feeling anxious for hours. I started looking for something that would be a natural stress reliever and something that could help lower my cortisol levels to boost my existing weightloss efforts, and this did the trick! It's been several months now and I'm still recommending CORTIGON to all of my friends and family.
Since starting CORTIGON, I feel like I've been coping way better with the stressors in my life. As a result I'm sleeping better, I finally have the desire to get back to the gym, and the best part of all is the depression is lifting a bit and my panic attacks that are triggered by any communication with my ex (necessary since we have children) are not as frequent and not as severe. I started taking these knowing my high stress levels weren't going to change because its all out of my control but I am so thankful that what this product has done for me is given me enough ability to manage how I deal with that stress that I have the energy to do other activities that reduce cortisol levels such as sleep better and exercise more. Thank you for giving me that and for the hope that I will survive life somehow!
