Adrenal Health enhances the body’s physiologic response to stress. Stress is defined as any situation or condition that causes undue physical, emotional and/or mental strain on the body. When one experiences stress, in any form, the adrenal glands secrete specific hormones that have a profound effect on the body. One can imagine the adrenal glands as little “hats” that sit on top of the kidneys. These hats secrete hormones such as cortisol and DHEA in response to stress. Over time, as one experiences stress on a daily basis, the adrenal glands can function less optimally, secreting unhealthy levels of these stress-related hormones. Overworking of the adrenal glands can lead to something called adrenal stress. Nervousness, poor memory, difficulty with concentration and decision-making, cravings for sweets, weight gain and compromised sleep are all associated with failure to maintain healthy levels of these two hormones.
Take 2 capsules with a small amount of water 2 times daily after meals. Not to be used during pregnancy or lactation. If you have a medical condition or take pharmaceutical drugs, please consult with your Doctor before using this product. Keep away from children. Use only as directed on label.
The Adrenal Health formula can have a profound influence on the body, helping to maintain a healthy response to stress by supporting the adrenal glands and nourishing the nervous system. Select herbs within the formula contain compounds recognized for their ability to support the health and function of the adrenal glands and maintaining normal secretion levels of key stress-related hormones such as cortisol.*
Rhodiola rosea root supports the functioning of the adrenal glands and encourages a healthy response to physical, emotional and mental stress by normalizing cortisol levels and other stress-related hormones. If used regularly, it enhances the body’s natural resistance and adaptation to stressful influences. Rhodiola rosea root is classified as an adaptogen, which represents a class of herbs that help the body adapt to stresses of various kinds. In order to achieve this classification, a plant must be harmless and must have a normalizing, broadspectrum action that supports homeostasis, particularly when under stressful influences.*
