Power Adrenal Fuel™ is a glandular and botanical combination product. It is geared toward supporting adrenal function by supporting the HPA axis, healthy energy levels, and endocrine balance, in addition to nourishing the adrenal glands themselves.
UNDERSTANDING THE ADRENAL GLANDS
The adrenal functions regulate our responses to stress. An underactive or overactive set of adrenal glands will produce either insufficient or excess amounts of hormones respectively, especiallycortisol. Cortisol in excess can produce excessbelly fat.* Various nutrients, including the B vitamin complex, play a major part in the health of the adrenal cascade. A full complex of the B vitamins are recommended for healthy adrenal functioning, while larger (in proportion) quantities of vitamins B3, B5 and B6 are used in the adrenal hormone production process. All of the eight vitamins in the complex are valuable during the adrenal cascade.
THE THREE STAGES OF STRESS RESISTANCE
Hans Selye, an expert in Adrenal Health, theorized that the body’s continuous stress response could cause major health concerns. He coined the phrase GAS, General Adaptation Syndrome, or the body’s response to prolonged stress. Mr. Selye classified the body’s stress resistance in three stages:ALARM, RESISTANCE AND EXHAUSTION.
THE SUPPORTIVE INGREDIENTS IN POWER ADRENAL FUEL™
PureWay-C® is a clinically proven form of vitamin C that contains both bioflavonoids and lipid metabolites. Recently published research proves that this type of vitamin C outperforms other leading forms.
It is important to include vitamin C in any well-rounded adrenal support program because:
1) you don’t produce vitamin C within your body,
2) vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, and
3) your body tissues use more vitamin C while they are stressed.
(DOPAMINE) >>> (VITAMIN C)>>> (NORADRENALINE)>>>(VITAMIN C)>>>(ADRENALINE)
Vitamin C is a mandatory cofactor for the synthesis of noradrenaline from dopamine, in addition to the subsequent synthesis of adrenaline from noradrenaline. Further, it supports the stages ofcatecholamine biosynthesis. It is believed that vitamin C deficiency as well as insufficient catecholamine secretion may be responsible for symptoms associated with scurvy.
ADRENAL CORTEX AND WHOLE ADRENAL
Adrenal Cortex and Whole Adrenal provide both portions of adrenal glands to support overall adrenal functioning, immune system wellness, and healthy energy levels.*
The B vitamins: Pantothenic acid (B5), Vitamin (B6), folate (B9), and vitamin B12 provide support for adrenal function.*
We use the Active (Bio-Available) forms of the B-vitamins in Power Adrenal Fuel™.
B5 (pantothenic acid) is converted in the body toacetyl-CoA, which is critical to the glucose-to-energy conversion (ATP). Acetyl-CoA is also vital for brain health and healthy memory.* It is present in all cells, but is found in higher quantities in adrenal cells because of the energy required to produce adrenal hormones.
B6 (Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate) is also a coenzyme involved in biochemical pathways in the adrenal cascade. B6 (Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate) plays a role in the function of the HPA (hypothalamic/pituitary/adrenal) axis, which modulates adrenal activity.
B9 (Methyl-Folate)– Extensive interplay exists between (B9) folate and the endocrine system. The folate in Power Adrenal Fuel™ is in the bioactive and bioavailable branded form, Quatrefolic®.
B12 in Power Adrenal Fuel™ is the branded Mecobalactive™, which is different from other B12’s due to a patented, sustainable process, a lower moisture content and a low impurity profile. B12, branded Mecobalactive™, crosses the blood brain barrier, which is extremely important for health.*
Eleutherococcus senticosus Root Powder
Eleutherococcus senticosus root is an adaptogen herb which may help support stamina, energy, and endurance; all crucial aspects of everyday health.* Eleutherococcus senticosus root also supports cognition, immune health, alertness, and a normal stress response.* Recent research indicates that adaptogenic herbs may act as stress mimetics, creating a mild stress response triggering the body’s own natural protective response.
