Xymogen Adrenal Essence
Adrenal Essence nutritionally supports normal adrenal functions by providing herbal and vitamin B supplementation.
What Adrenal Essence is best for:
Xymogen Adrenal Essence is a herbal and B vitamin rich formula providing Adrenal support for:
- Supports for stress-induced fatigue and exhaustion.
- Supports Adaptation to Stress
- Supports Normal Immune Function
- Supports Antioxidant and Cell-Protective Activity
During stress, the sympathetic nervous system is activated, and research tells us that over-activation and the constant release of adrenaline, cortisol, and other stress-related hormones have a negative impact on body systems. The term (adaptogen' is used to describe an agent thought to increase resistance to stressors, support general vitality, and improve physical and mental capacities.
Adaptogenic herbs and nutrients that address the deleterious effects of stress and support the body's return to a more normalized physiology can be an important part of nutritional intervention.
How Adrenal Essence works:
Adrenal Essence is a comprehensive blend of standardized extracts of highest quality adaptogenic herbs and three B vitamins. These ingredients support the body's stress response by aiding in adrenal hormone production and assisting in stress adaptation.
Adrenal Essence is designed to reduce stress-induced fatigue and exhaustion, protect tissues from free radicals, and support normal immune function.
Cordyceps sinensis (cordyceps)
Cordyceps has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine for its far-reaching restorative effects. It is a safe, highly valued herb with pharmacological activities proven to benefi t nearly every physiological system that is affected by stress, including the immune and cardiovascular systems. Cordyceps has been employed for dizziness, weakness, and general wasting. It is also widely and traditionally used to reduce fatigue, increase energy, and enhance stamina. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioners also recommend the regular use of cordyceps to strengthen the body's resistance.
Rhodiola rosea (rhodiola)
This adaptogenic herb has been used traditionally in Eastern Europe and Asia for centuries to increase stamina, reduce fatigue, maintain a normal mood, support the nervous and immune systems, and maintain normal male sexual function. Research has also shown that rhodiola has a positive effect on brain neurotransmitters, and may influence endogenous opioid levels. According to a review of the literature on rhodiola, supplementation improves work performance, quality of sleep, appetite, irritability, and energy levels subsequent to intense physical or intellectual strain. Salidrosides and rosavin have been identified as primary actives.
Adrenal Essence is standardized to provide no less than 1%-3% salidrosides and 3% rosavin.
Panax ginseng (ginseng)
As an important herbal remedy in TCM, ginseng has been used for thousands of years, primarily for weakness and fatigue. The main active agents have been identified as ginsenosides, and they are the focus of much published research. Experimental models show that ginseng and ginsenosides have beneficial effects in both acute and chronic stress by supporting the adrenal glands.
Vitamin B6, Pantothenic Acid, and Para-Aminobenzoic Acid (PABA)
These nutrients help protect the body from the ravages of stress, including fatigue. Pantothenic acid is essential to the adrenal glands for production of the glucocorticoids. It forms pantethine in the body, which then converts to coenzyme-A+the most active metabolic enzyme in the human body needed to produce cellular energy. D-calcium pantothenate contains 91.96% pantothenic acid and is the usual supplemental form. Vitamin B6, acting as a coenzyme, has a role in the conversion of muscle glycogen to glucose needed for the stress response, the synthesis of serotonin, and the support of the immune function. PABA has a role in amino acid metabolism and is needed to manufacture folic acid.
CAUTION: Do not take if pregnant or lactating.
Keep out of reach of children.
