Fresh Ground Vegetarian Capsules
Adrenal Rx is a balancing adaptogenic formula indicated for those who are overworked, overstressed, and find themselves feeling tired, overwhelmed and burnt-out most or all of the time. It is also helpful for those who haven’t hit the wall yet, but live fast-paced, high-stress lifestyles and want to avoid breakdown and burnout. Adrenal Rx will increase the body’s resistance to physical, mental and environmental stress, and help to defend against diseases and disorders caused by overstress. The herbs used in the formula are highly adaptogenic and work synergistically to moderate the stress response, not by blocking it all together but by balancing it out. In other words, they enable the body to respond more appropriately to stress without over-exaggerating the response. This prevents adrenal overstimulation and protects the adrenals from breakdown and exhaustion. Adaptogens act positively on glucose metabolism as they stimulate the liver to convert glycogen to glucose, enhance entry of glucose into the cell, and enhance utilization of glucose within cells. Regular use of Adrenal Rx will help normalize stress hormone levels, lessening one's predisposition to stress, decrease over-reactions during the stress response, and provide protection against the effects of long-term stress. In addition, energy and vitality will be restored, and mood and emotional well-being will improve.
Eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus) has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years and is indicated for those with fatigue, physical weakness, compromised immunity, and poor work capacity and concentration. Pharmacologically, Eleuthero tonifies, displays anti-stress activity, increases lymphocyte count, and has an immunomodulatory effect on the cellular immune system. Studies show that Eleuthero increases endurance, reduces the alarm phase of the stress response, prevents stress-induced illness and disease, supports adrenal function, and enhances T-cell activation and immune system function. Formerly known in the U.S. as Siberian Ginseng, Eleuthero is not a true ginseng, but it does belong to the same family of plants. Compared to true ginseng, Eleuthero is non-heating and milder in its stimulatory effects.
Ashwagandha is used preventively to avoid burnout and breakdown and restoratively to help strengthen those who are already mentally and/or physically depleted. It has positive effects on chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, debility, and recovery from wasting diseases. Ashwagandha is one of the most important herbs of Ayurveda and is known as “Ayurvedic” Ginseng. It is indicated for similar conditions as Ginseng, but it is not heating, Yang, or stimulating like Ginseng. Many scientific studies have been conducted that support Ashwagandha’s adaptogenic and anti-stress activity. It’s been found to be effective at increasing physical endurance, preventing gastric ulcers brought on by stress, and reducing the rise of stress hormone levels in the blood. Ashwagandha also has cognitive effects and can increase intellect and memory. Several studies indicate it slows, stops and reverses neuritic atrophy and synaptic loss, and thus has been used in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Huntington’s. Ashwagandha also displays GABA-mimetic, anxiolytic and anti-depressant properties and can help stabilize mood in those with anxiety and depression.
American Ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) is native to North America and was used in traditional indigenous medicine by tribes such as the Cherokee, Creek, Iroquois, Menominee, Ojibwa, Pawnn, and Seneca. Its primary uses include enhancing blood sugar metabolism in both healthy individuals and those with type 2 diabetes, improving cardiorespiratory endurance during activity, boosting mood and reducing fatigue. It has a systemic effect to increase vigor, energy, and vitality, and is especially helpful for individuals feeling overworked and rundown. Red Chinese Ginseng (Panax ginseng) is more warming and stimulating than American. Studies have shown it to have positive effects on quality of life, physical and mental stress, and intellectual skills. Traditional Chinese Medicine believes that it replenishes vital essence and promotes blood circulation. It acts through both the hypothalamus-pituitary=adrenal axis through its immunomodulatory activity.
Schisandra increases endurance and mental performance, and has an adaptogenic, tonifying, and stimulating effect during extreme fatigue. Studies indicate daily use of Schisandra helps prevent increases in cortisol, nitric oxide, and stress-activated protein kinase. It also exhibits anti-depressant activity and is indicated for depressions related to excessive fatigue and nervous exhaustion.
Cordyceps have been traditionally used as a tonic to improve energy, endurance, stamina, appetite and sleep patterns. Research indicates they have biological and pharmacological actions in diseases of the liver, kidneys and cardiovascular system, and effects on immunological disorders. Cordyceps stimulate the production of T helper cells, TNF-alpha and interleukin 1 production, increase natural killer cell activity, and prolong lymphocyte survival.
Rhodiola increases resistance to chemical, biological, and physical stressors and protects the body from stress-induced breakdown. It stimulates the activity of the neurotransmitters serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine, helps normalize mood in depressed individuals, and improves cognitive function.
