Adaptogenic Herbal & Vitamin Support for Adrenals
If you suffer from brain fog, insomnia, inability to lose weight, anxiety, fatigue, or lack of focus, Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome may be at the root of your problem. Adrenal Fatigue is one of the most prevalent conditions in the modern world and is primarily brought on by chronic stress. All too often, people put themselves through an immense amount of stress in attempts to get ahead. Then, pile on raising a family, poor relationships, deaths, illnesses, lack of sleep, etc. Now, you’ve exceeded the body’s capacity to deal with stress (chemical, physical, and emotional). This is how Adrenal Fatigue sets in.
Celarity’s Adrenal Revive is specifically formulated with powerful adaptogenic herbs and B vitamins to naturally heal the adrenal glands. Utilizing natural ingredients to heal adrenals, Adrenal Revive helps support healthy energy levels, immune function, and antioxidant activity in the body. What Is ADRENAL REVIVE? Adrenal Revive is a comprehensive blend of extracts of the highest-quality adaptogenic herbs and three B vitamins. These ingredients offer support for adrenal hormone production and the body’s adaptogenic response.
Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome (or Adrenal Fatigue) is a term used to say that fatigue and other symptoms are caused by poorly working adrenal glands in individuals under physical, chemical, or emotional stress. Although typically associated with prolonged or intense stress, it can also arise after acute or chronic infections, especially respiratory infections. It’s paramount symptom is fatigue that is not relieved by sleep. You may not have any obvious signs of physical illness, yet you live with a general sense of unwellness, tiredness, or “gray” feelings. What Is Adrenal Fatigue? Adrenal Fatigue can wreak havoc in your life. As adrenal function decreases, every organ and system in your body is profoundly affected. Many experiencing Adrenal Fatigue rely on stimulants like coffee and colas to make it through the day. Although Adrenal Fatigue affects millions of people in the US and around the world, conventional medicine does not yet recognize it as a distinct syndrome.
What Causes Adrenal Fatigue? Chronic stress is the primary cause of Adrenal Fatigue. It is important to remember that the body does not distinguish between chemical, physical, or emotional stress; all stress activates the same response in the body. So regardless of if you’re dealing with high demands at work, family stress, financial stress, toxicity stress, illness, or lack of sleep, your body perceives all stress the same. Our bodies have an amazing potential to heal and self-regulate. However, if any stressor or combination of stressors become chronic, they begin to break down the body. Identifying stressor(s) in your life is a key component in the healing process. In addition to common chemical, emotional, and physical stressors, here are some other stressors that play a role in Adrenal Fatigue:
Blood Sugar Imbalances
Sleep Deprivation Symptoms Associated with Adrenal Fatigue When the adrenal glands fail to produce hormones effectively, a laundry list of symptoms can arise. These can include:
Lack of Focus
The Thyroid Connection Functional medicine has long recognized the interplay between healthy adrenal function and healthy thyroid function. For instance, the anti-stress hormone cortisol is produced by the adrenal glands and a normal amount of cortisol is important for normal thyroid function. In many instances, when one of these organs is struggling, so is the other. When someone presents with adrenal problems, they normally also have thyroid problems as well, and vice-versa.
INGREDIENTS THAT WORK Supplying your body with focused, high-density nutrients is critical for restoring adrenal health. Supplementing appropriate herbs and vitamins helps to balance, restore, and heal the adrenals naturally. Cordyceps sinensis (cordyceps): Cordyceps has been used for centuries for its far-reaching restorative effects, specifically in Chinese medicine. This highly-valued herb safely supports nearly every physiological system impacted by the body’s response to everyday stressors, including the immune and cardiovascular systems. It has been widely and traditionally used to increase energy and stamina. Cordyceps has also been used to support strength, good balance, and a healthy body weight. It has a positive effect on fat metabolism and blood sugar, which is important because fats and sugars are actively mobilized to supply extra energy when the body is under stress. In addition, cell-protective and antioxidant activities of cordyceps have been documented in various research studies. Rhodiola rosea (rhodiola): This adaptogenic herb has been used for centuries in Eastern Europe and Asia to increase stamina, maintain a healthy mood, support the nervous and immune systems, and maintain healthy male sexual function. According to Panossian et al, experimental studies performed on isolated organs, tissues, cells, and enzymes demonstrate that rhodiola preparations exhibit adaptogenic effects that support nerve, brain, and heart health and are calming, longevity-enhancing, and central nervous system- stimulating. Studies suggest Rhodiola may also have a positive effect on brain neurotransmitters, such as dopamine and serotonin, and may influence endogenous opioid levels. According to a review of the literature on rhodiola, supplementation supports healthy work performance, quality of sleep, appetite, and energy levels subsequent to intense physical or intellectual strain. Salidrosides and rosavin have been identified as primary actives. The rhodiola extract in this formula is standardized to provide no less than 1%-3% salidrosides and 3% rosavin.
Panax ginseng (ginseng): As an important herbal remedy in
Traditional Chinese Medicine, ginseng has been used for thousands of years, primarily for energy production. The main active agents have been identified as ginsenosides, and they are the focus of much published research. Studies show that ginseng and ginsenosides have beneficial effects in supporting the adrenal glands; protecting the gastric mucosa; and supporting healthy body weight, blood hormones, and the gene expression of catecholamine-synthesizing enzymes Ginsenosides also have immune-supporting and cytokine-modulating activities.
Vitamin B6, Pantothenic Acid, and Para-Aminobenzoic Acid (PABA): Pantothenic acid is essential to the adrenal glands for production of the glucocorticoids. It forms pantethine in the body, which then converts to coenzyme-A—the most active metabolic enzyme in the human body needed to produce cellular energy. D-calcium pantothenate contains 91.96% pantothenic acid and is the usual supplemental form. Vitamin B6, acting as a coenzyme, has a role in the conversion of muscle glycogen to glucose, which is needed for a proper response to stressors; the synthesis of serotonin; and the support of the immune function. PABA has a role in amino acid metabolism and is needed to manufacture folic acid. Why Dr. Zyrowski utilizes Celarity Adrenal Revive Clinically This is the primary formula I use when my patients are suffering from Adrenal Fatigue. I find that using this blend of vitamins and herbs have a synergistic affect to positively impact your adrenal vs. taking each herb or vitamin separately. Adaptogenic herbs help you adapt to stress by modulating your stress response on the physiological level. They can help increase, decrease or harmonize your cortisol and other stress hormone levels. This is a must-have if you’re suffering from Adrenal Fatigue.
