Adrenal Complex is a glandular-based formula designed to support overall adrenal function in order to help with optimum stress tolerance and healthy energy levels.
The primary function of the adrenal glands is the release of hormones in response to stress through the production of cortisol – also known as the “stress hormone” – and other compounds such as dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine. While small increases in cortisol support homeostasis and aid in regulating the body’s “fight or flight” response, higher than normal levels of cortisol have been shown to deplete the body’s nutrients and negatively impact adrenal performance.
• N-acetyl-tyrosine is the most bioavailable form of the amino acid tyrosine and is a critical building block of the hormones and neurotransmitters which are often depleted under chronic stress conditions. Research shows that supplementing with tyrosine may provide specific therapeutic benefits to people experiencing chronic stress.
• Vitamin C: its inclusion in Adrenal Complex is critical, as it plays an important role in adrenal hormone production and the maintenance of healthy cortisol levels.
• B Vitamins: the comprehensive spectrum of B vitamins in this product serve as enzyme cofactors in the balanced production of stress hormones. To ensure superior bioavailability (meaning that your body can readily use them), most of the B vitamins are included in their pre-activated form.
