Adrenal fatigue is a term not recognized by the medical community. It is a term used for a number of nonspecific symptoms such as body aches, nervousness, fatigue, tiredness, exhaustion, sleep disturbances, and sometimes digestive problems.

The adrenal glands produce several hormones important to the organism and essential to life. The medical term “adrenal insufficiency” represents the lack of production of one or more of these hormones as a result of illness or surgery.

Common symptoms of adrenal insufficiency may include: exhaustion, fatigue, insomnia, body aches, weight loss, low blood pressure, light headaches,
loss of hair, and others.

Adrenal fatigue may be caused by constant chronic stress and overwork.
The theory behind adrenal fatigue is that the adrenal glands are incapable to keep pace with the demands of perpetual fight-or-flight arousal and constant stress. Stress can be physical, emotional, psychological, environmental, infectious, or a combination of these. Current blood tests, according to this theory, are not sensitive enough to provide an explanation or objective diagnosis but the organism is.

Adrenal+™ is a combination of vitamins, minerals, and herbal extracts. This product has been formulated to support adrenal function.
Clinical research has demonstrated that environmental, physical, and psychological stress can deplete the adrenal glands causing a decrease
in the secretion of cortisol as well as other hormones.

Of all the available vitamins involved in adrenal function, vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is the most important one. In fact, the more cortisol made, the more vitamin C used. Vitamin C is very important to the adrenal hormone cascade and the manufacturing of adrenal steroid hormones becoming available. Blood level of vitamin C was used as the best indicator of adrenal function level in animal studies. Vitamin C is used all along the adrenal cascade and acts as an antioxidant within the adrenal cortex itself.

Bioflavonoids are essential if ascorbic acid is to be fully metabolized and utilized by the body. The ratio of bioflavonoids to vitamin C should be 1:2.
The addition of bioflavonoids enhances the effectiveness of ascorbic acid
in the organism allowing its action to be more complete.

Essential for the nervous system, calcium helps the nervous system and develops inner calm, among many other important functions.

A co-factor for several enzymatic pathways in the adrenal gland cascade, vitamin B6 as Pyridoxyl-5-Phosphate (P5P), the natural form of vitamin B6,
has also been added to this supplement. A small percentage of the population in the US has difficulty metabolizing the regular B6 (Pyridoxine HCL) and as a result requires a P5P vitamin B6 to fully activate these enzymatic pathways.

The manufacture of adrenal hormones generates substances called free
radicals that can create damage inside cells if they are not controlled.
Vitamin E absorbs and neutralizes these damaging free radical molecules inside the adrenal glands and elsewhere.

Important for adrenal recovery, magnesium is essential for the production of enzymes and energy necessary for the adrenal hormone cascade. Several of the steps that create energy in all of the cells, but especially in the adrenal glands, are so dependent on the presence of the mineral magnesium. Magnesium works well with vitamin C and pantothenic acid to potentiate the action of the adrenals.

Niacin, in addition to pantothenic acid, is one of the most important of the B vitamins to the adrenal cascade. Large amounts of niacin are necessary to form the molecular structure of certain niacin dependent coenzymes imperative for several steps in this cascade.

Trace minerals such as zinc, copper, selenium, and chromium are very important for the organism and overall adrenal health.

The herb best known for supporting adrenal function is licorice. Licorice is known to increase energy, endurance, vitality, and act as a mild tonic. It is known to fortify cortisone levels, arguably the most important hormone in stress and adrenal fatigue.

Ashwagandha is an adaptogen (part of a group of herbs that support the organism’s natural ability to deal with stress) that promotes thyroid and adrenal function. It regulates cortisol levels, which can help with energy levels dealing with stress. Ashwagandha supports the nervous system, relieves anxiety, and balances hormones.

Another adaptogen, arctic root (rhodiola), is widely known as an anti-stress herb for mood disorders, fatigue and adrenal weakness. Rhodiola health benefits restore balance to the adrenal glands in the early stages of Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome (AFS). When taking rhodiola in early AFS, people feel an increase of energy or calmness.

Korean Ginseng is traditionally used in western herbal medicine to improve physical and mental exhaustion, lowered immunity and to facilitate adaptation to stress. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) it is considered a key agent for enhancing energy and longevity.

Previously called Siberian ginseng, eleuthero is not considered part of the ginseng family. Still, this herb has a wide range of activities that help support and rejuvenate adrenal activity and increase resistance to stress.

Low levels of iodine may affect the ability of the adrenal glands to produce cortisol. Kelp seaweed is considered one of the best sources of iodine. It has been demonstrated that low levels of iodine may increase the risk of developing adrenal exhaustion.

An additional adaptogen and important for the adrenals, ginger helps modulate cortisol levels, increase energy and metabolic rate, and stimulate digestive enzyme secretion for proteins and fatty acids, among other functions.

Ginkgo biloba is commonly known for its ability to promote peripheral circulation and for its neuroprotective effects. Ginkgo biloba has been shown to lessen tissue damage from inflammation, elevate mood in people prone to depression, and decrease mental fatigue. Its unique qualities make it valuable to an adrenal recovery plan.
