Healthy adrenal gland function is crucial to a number of physiological functions including glucose metabolism, stress adaptation, energy generation, stamina, and the immune response. Phyto-ADR is a vegetarian formula designed to provide wide-range herbal and nutritional support for the adrenal glands and healthy adrenal function.
Uses For Phyto-ADR
Adrenal Support: Panax ginseng and Eleutherococcus
senticosus, or eleuthero, are highly recognized
adaptogens, promoting physiological balance and
resistance to stress. In part, they help to moderate
the production of adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH)
and ultimately corticosterone activity. Corticosterone
promotes the conversion of amino acids into
carbohydrates and glycogen by the liver and
stimulates glycogen formation in the tissues, supporting
optimal energy reserves. Rhodiola rosea, containing
rosavins and salidrosides, also acts to balance
hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal activity. Rhodiola can have a calming effect on the central nervous system and supports healthy thyroid, thymus, and adrenal gland
function. In particular, rhodiola may moderate the effects of physical and emotional stress. Recently, a double blind cross-over study suggests that rhodiola may help to
moderate fatigue under stressful conditions. Astragalus and ashwagandha promote immune support and
complement the adaptogenic activity of this formula. Calcium pantothenate, a vitamin B5 derivative, is essential for activating the adrenals.*
