Adrenal/Cortisol Support
The adrenal glands are part of the endocrine system and responsible for releasing proper amounts of hormones into the system as a response to stress. By synthesizing natural corticosteroids (such as cortisol) reactions that require an influx of something like adrenaline are responded to by the adrenals. The glands sit on top of each kidney and are a major player in kidney health. When the adrenals are taxed and unable to perform properly, a slew of ill effects can arise. One is adrenal fatigue which drags the entire system into chronic exhaustion as a result of malfunctioning hormone release. This can be due to a variety of factors such as an unhealthy diet, lack of exercise and overuse of vices such as caffeine, tobacco and/or alcohol. An adrenal/cortisol supplement could be the missing link needed to reset your body back into homeostasis. In conjunction with a proper diet and physical fitness, such a supplement has the ability to bring back much needed energy, mental clarity, cell rejuvenation and the mobilization of fats, proteins and carbohydrates.

Adrenal Complex – This complex supplement offers a combined formula of “high quality adrenal glandular extract along with key nutrients to naturally support adrenal function.” Some of the ingredients in this preservative, gluten, dairy-free recipe include adrenal cortical and glandular extract, folic acid, PABA (Para-aminobenzoic acid), pantothenic acid, vitamin C and several B vitamins. It is an effective, fast acting, highly potent combination of extracts that, under proper guidance, have the ability to realign the adrenal system.

As the adrenal glands become stressed themselves, the output of hormones can become too high or too low causing anything from adrenal fatigue, weight gain and compromised healing capability to the potential for more serious diseases/conditions over time. Some health challenges associated with malfunctioning adrenals include:

  • Addison’s Disease
  • Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasias
  • Waterhouse-Friderichsen Syndrome

The lack of, or over production of, essential adrenal hormone release can also affect cortisol discharge. This is the hormone responsible for human reaction to outside stress known as ‘fight or flight’. If this hormone is not absorbed in proper doses, along with other hormones that the adrenals control such as DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone), testosterone, progesterone and estrogen, either directly related or peripheral system problems may occur.

An adrenal/cortisol supplement should always be used according to your naturopathic doctor’s recommendation and guidance regarding age, health history and any medical contraindications that may apply. To purchase Adrenal Complex please CLICK HERE.
