Adrenal Support

Combat Stress and Support Your Adrenals

Stress is defined as any disturbance: Extreme cold or heat, psychological stress, sleep deprivation, work overload, physical trauma, as well as toxic exposure that can trigger the stress response.

The initial, short-live phase is the body´s normal fight-or flight response to danger, characterized by elevated cortisol levels. The subsequent resistance phase allows the body to continue buffering extended stress exposure, long after the initial fight-flight response has dissipated. Hormones released by the adrenals, such as cortisol and DHEA, help support the resistance reaction. Extended periods of stress not only burden the system, creating an imbalance in cortisol and DHEA production, but can result in mental and physical fatigue, nervous, tension, irritability and poor memory – all of which are characteristic of stage 3 adrenal fatigue.  Total Adrenal Support offers a unique blend of botanicals, adrenal concentrate and micronutrients that support the adrenal glands, as well as the body´s ability to counter-act the negative effects of stress.

Rhodiola Rosea Root Extract

Rhodiola Rosea has been categorized as an adaptogenic botanical due to its ability to increase resistance to a variety of stressors. Rhodiola has been studied extensively and is widely used in Eastern Europe and Asia to help support the nervous system, mood regulation, mental clarity, work performance and the sleep cycle. Within the central nervous system Rhodiola has demonstrated an ability to preserve levels of neurotransmitters, such as serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine. In a randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled study examining the effects of Rhodiola on fatigue and stress, 161 patients aged 19 to 21 years received Rhodiola twice daily resulting in a significant reduction in fatigue. An additional study using Rhodiola extract in students showed significant improvements in mental performance, greater mood stability and improved sleep patterns.
