Additional product information
Adrenal-Build contains supportive nutrients for the adrenal gland, including vitamin C, vitamin B6, and B12. The herb rhodiola (Rhodiola rosea) is included as an adaptogen, helping the body cope with increased stress by increasing energy and stamina and improving immune and inflammatory responses. Adrenal-Build also contains an extract of Argentinian cattle adrenal glandular tissue, which helps support the adrenal glands and helps decrease adrenal fatigue.
Adrenal insufficiency refers to the inability of the adrenal glands to produce a normal amount of hormones, which leads to a reduced ability in the individual to cope with stress. The adrenal glands and the production of adrenal hormones are regulated by the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. The HPA axis exerts effects upon the inflammatory immune response as well due to glucocorticoid activity, which can lead to immune shifts towards Th2 dominance causing increased inflammation, immune imbalances, sleep disturbances, candidiasis, allergies and even cancer.
The adrenal glands produce the “stress” hormone cortisol, and during chronic stress, the excessive release of cortisol can eventually lead to changes in cortisol production. Cortisol follows a normal circadian release and is important in regulating blood glucose and maintaining healthy immune function, cardiovascular function, fertility, and overall physical and mental stamina. Cortisol is also involved in the regulation of the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats, as it stimulates the liver to raise the blood sugar as needed, in response to metabolic demands, physical activity, and stress. Increased cortisol output from the adrenals can lead to metabolic imbalances, including fatigue, weight gain, decreased immunity, imbalances in blood glucose and insulin regulation, thyroid and sex hormone imbalances, increased inflammation and cardiovascular imbalances.
Increased stress can lead to imbalances of the cortisol to DHEA ratio, which is important in maintaining memory. DHEA (dehydroepiandosterone) is a pro-hormone produced in the adrenals and in the ovaries in females that is involved in the manufacture of the sex hormones testosterone and estrogen.
Studies have reported that moderate to high-intensity exercise provokes increases in circulating cortisol levels. Overtraining Syndrome (OS) has been linked with adrenal insufficiency. Elevated cortisol leads to loss of minerals, changes in blood glucose, sleep pattern disturbances, blood pressure and heart rate variability, loss of bone density and mood alteration. All of the above-mentioned symptoms are also associated with overreaching and overtraining in athletes.
