best supplement on the market for overall glandular support.
The body has an amazing ability to perform many tasks at the same time;
main concern is always survival. The
nutritional model recognizes that performance
and the ability to gain lean body mass is in direct competition with the body’s
ability to manage survival.
When there is competition for hormone production
survival will always predominate at the expense of anabolic and metabolic
hormones. The key to the optimal balance is to keep two little glands known as
the adrenals fuelled and content while modifying unhealthy lifestyle choices
that would cause more burden. One has to remember that intense exercise and
muscle breakdown is a stress to the body and maintaining optimal adrenal health
is pivotal to being able to reach the next level of performance.
THE IMPORTANCE OF ADRENAL HEALTH
No bigger than a walnut and weighing less than a grape, each of your two adrenal
glands sits like a tiny pyramid on top of a kidney. Don't let their size
fool you however; these powerful little endocrine glands manufacture and secrete steroid
hormones such as cortisol, estrogen and testosterone that are essential for
life, health and vitality. They modulate the functioning of every tissue, organ
and gland in your body to maintain homeostasis during stress and keep you alive.
They also have important effects on the way you think and feel.
The main purpose of your adrenals is to enable your body to deal with stress
from every possible source, ranging from injury and disease to work and
relationship problems. It is through the actions of the adrenal hormones that
your body is able to mobilize its resources to escape or fight off danger
(stress) and survive. In a more primitive society that would mean being able to
run away quickly, fight or pursue an enemy or game, endure long periods of
physical challenge and deprivation, and store up physical reserves when they are
available. In modern society, these same responses are triggered by such
circumstances as a difficult boss, air pollution, family quarrels, financial
problems too little sleep and overindulgence in or sensitivities to food or
KEY SUPPORTING FACTORS
Coleus forskohlii's key constituent Forskolin resensitizes cell receptors by
activating the enzyme adenylyl cyclase and increasing the intracellular levels
of cAMP. cAMP is an important signal carrier necessary for the proper biological
response of cells to hormones and other extracellular signals. It is required
for cell communication in the hypothalamus/pituitary gland axis and for the
feedback control of hormones.
This herb is considered an adaptogen which is an herb that works to normalize
physiological function, working on the HPA axis and the neuroendocrine system.
Rhodiola rosea exerts an anti-fatigue effect that increases mental
performance, particularly the ability to concentrate in healthy subjects
(Darbinyan et al., 2000; Spasov et al.,2000b; Shevtsov et al., 2003) and burnout
patients with fatigue syndrome (Olsson et al., 2009). Rhodiola rosea's effects
potentially are related to optimizing serotonin and dopamine levels and it
has been used in Russia for centuries to help subjects cope with stressful lives.
L-Tyrosine can be converted by neurons in the brain to dopamine and
norepinephrine (noradrenaline), hormones which are depleted by stress, overwork
and certain drugs. By replenishing norepinephrine in the brain, mental energy
levels are enhanced and a feeling of contentment often occurs. L-Tyrosine is
also a precursor of two thyroid hormones.
The herb E. senticosus contains the constituent lipophilic which can fit
into hormone receptors. It is useful when the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis
(HPA) is depleted. Symptoms of this condition include fatigue, stress, neurasthenia
and sore muscles associated with the hypo-functioning of the endocrine system and
Astragalus is classified as an adaptogen, an herb that increases the body's
endurance and resistance to a wide array of physical, chemical, and biological
stressors. Adaptogens help normalize the functioning of various body systems by
affecting the action of hormones. Adaptogens are usually beneficial in treating
chronic conditions. They have been found to enhance the immune response, reduce
inflammation, stabilize blood sugar, and support the hormone systems,
particularly the adrenal and pituitary glands.
