Glandulars were the first form of supplementation ever used. The premise behind such supplementation is simple; glandular tissues contain peptides‚ minerals‚ lipids and nutrients naturally present in specific glands. Supplementation with glandular extracts therefore provides all the nutrients required to support the normal of that gland. It is therefore not surprising that when AOR created an adaptogenic formula designed to support adrenal function and to improve the ability to cope with increasing demands ‚ adrenal glandulars were included in the mix. The adrenal glands are responsible for the production of stress hormones and for the maintenance of electrolyte and fluid balance in the body. Of course‚ an adaptogenic formula would be incomplete without the help of other nutrients with demonstrated benefits specific to adrenal function such as pantethine‚ vitamin C‚ licorice‚ Siberian gingseg‚ Rhodiola and Ashwagandha. Adaptgens help us cope with all stressors; they activate whole-body‚ nonspecific defenses‚ redirecting the body's resources to provide energy for active engagement with all of life's struggles‚ whether physical‚ emotional or environmental. Adaptogens promote homeostasis‚ and enhance our abiity to adjust our internal environment in response to changes in the external environment. Pantethine is converted into Coenzyme A which participates in hundreds of metabolic reactions essential for energy production‚ fatty acids synthesis‚ the formation of proteins and also for the formation of key adrenal hormones involved in the mobilization of energy reserves in response to stress. Vitamin C is essential for the synthesis of several stress hormones. The adrenal glands contain some of the body's highest concentration of vitamin C‚ which is quickly depleted during stress. Rhodiola has long been used in Siberia to enhance physical and mental endurance. Recent clinical trials have shown that the botanical extract has an anti-fatigue effect‚ improving tests of physical fitness‚ mental fatigue and neuromotor function. Licorice activates receptors for key adrenal hormones‚ which helps mobilize energy stores in response to stress. Licorice also inhibits enzymes responsible for the degradation of adrenal hormones. Ashwagandha is also known as indian gingseng. The herb offers a unqiue advantage when it comes to coping with stress. While most adaptogens help mobilize reserves to boost the stress response‚ ashwagandha refines the response‚ reducing stress-related excesses induced by an over stimulated nervous system. Eleutherococcus senticosus‚ also referred to as Siberian Gingseng‚ it not a gingseng at all. However‚ the herb has well documented benefits for those whose daily demands have left them in a state of dismay. If the challenges you face a a day-to-day basis are asking more than you can provide‚ the problem may very well be that you have been unable to adapt to the very real pressures of all your current situation. Adaptation is a normal self-protective mechanism‚ which is promoted by the adaptogens found in Ortho-Adapt. Ortho-Adapt is also available as a vegetarian formula‚ which does not contain adrenal glandulars.
