Adrenal Balance Provides Nutrient and Adaptogenic Herbal Support for the Adrenal Glands
Adrenal Balance 90 vegetarian capsules
Product Size: 90 vegetarian capsules
Servings Per Container: 30
Adrenal Balance is a combination of standardized herbs and nutrients which are known to contribute to rejuvenating the adrenals. This product is designed to help support healthy cortisol levels, hypothalamic and pituitary function (HPTA axis), and catecholamine production (dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine).
Made with non-GMO ingredients.
* Adrenal Balance does not contain glandulars.
- Panax quinquefolius (American ginseng) and Ashwagandha (Indian ginseng or Withania) - the ginseng family of herbs possesses a unique property of aiding in the regeneration and enhanced function of hypothalamic cortisol receptors, providing an amphoteric effect (can act as a base and an acid), which allows the body to better self-regulate cortisol levels
- Glycyrrhiza glabra (Licorice root) - licorice potentiates and extends the serum life of cortisol, thereby lessening the demand on the adrenal cortex during stressful conditions
- N-Acetyl-tyrosine - included as a critical building block of various neurotransmitters, thyroid hormones, and catecholamines (often depleted under chronic stress conditions)
Also included are vitamin C, pantothenic acid (B5), vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate) and vitamin B2 (as Riboflavin-5-Phosphate), all playing critical roles as enzyme co-factors in the balanced production of stress hormones.
Adrenal Balance is a comprehensive blend of nutrients and botanical compounds designed to support healthy adrenal function. The adrenal glands are responsible for regulating a wide variety of processes in the body, most notably the “fight or flight” response to stressful situations. These glands produce several hormones and neurotransmitters, some of which are designed to help regulate energy levels and mood on an ongoing basis, and others which are intended to be released only in short bursts, to help power someone through brief moments of intense stress or vigilance.Due to the fast pace and unrelenting demands of modern life, however, the adrenal glands are taxed with producing higher amounts of these compounds more frequently. This may first result in overactive adrenal function, with very high levels of stress hormones (cortisol, in particular), but the glands can only keep up with this increased demand for so long before they begin to lag behind, eventually leading to adrenal exhaustion, in which output of these critical hormones and chemical messengers decreases, resulting in fatigue, reduced initiative, low moods, and difficulty handling even mild amounts of occasional stress. It is common for some people to “ping-pong” back and forth between these two states, leading to feeling simultaneously “tired and wired.”
B-vitamins and vitamin C are crucial contributors to energy generation at the cellular level, which may bolster adrenal function and combat the fatigue that is a hallmark of tired adrenals. The amino acid tyrosine is a building block for thyroid hormones as well as the neurotransmitters dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine, which are involved in balanced moods and the ability to cope with stress. B-vitamins—specifically B6—serve a second function as required cofactors in the biochemical processes that produce these critical neurotransmitters. All of these nutrients are available in food, but over time, stress may increase the need for higher amounts than are typically obtained from the diet alone.
A key feature of Adrenal Balance is the inclusion of several herbal adaptogens—compounds that help the body regulate the production of various hormones and neurotransmitters. Whether the need is for an increase or a decrease, they facilitate the normalizing of these levels. Rhodiola, ashwagandha, American ginseng, and eleuthero are adaptogens that have been used for centuries in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine to support healthy responses to stress. An additional ingredient, licorice, helps cortisol stay in the bloodstream longer, thereby lessening the demand on the adrenals to produce more of it.
