Adrenal Fatigue Supplements

adrenal fatigue supplements supplements for treating adrenal fatigue

Adrenal fatigue supplements are an essential part of the any Adrenal fatigue treatment plan. Adrenal fatigue supplements provide the nutritional basis that your body needs to raise Adrenal gland production of hormones such as Cortisol, Aldosterone, Progesterone, which are necessary for your body's healthy functioning. Without your Adrenal glands, you would have no energy at all. Adrenal gland function requires certain nutrients which can be found in vitamins, minerals, herbs, glandulars and amino acid supplements.

Many of the supplements used in the treatment of adrenal fatigue or adrenal burnout tend to be extremely stimulating in order to boost energy levels to counteract the fatigue of adrenal burnout. This can lead to more imbalances if you happen to be a fast oxidizer, meaning your metabolic rate is already sped up above a healthy level.

Many people who use adrenal fatigue supplements also rely on stimulants such as coffee, tea, soda, sugar, and other "natural" herbal stimulants such as ginseng which all speed up the rate at which energy is pumped out of the adrenals. These stimulants will keep your adrenals working extra hard which can make them even more fatigued in the long run. Vitamin C and Licorice are commonly prescribed to patients with adrenal fatigue but these can in fact be too stimulating and can cause even more adrenal fatigue when prescribed on their own for an extended period of time.

Pantothenic acid and other B vitamins are also necessary in helping to rebuild the adrenals, but in improper dosage or ratios to one another can also be too stimulating. Natural substances such as maca, cordyceps, ginseng, glandular extracts, royal jelly, and eleuthero root are all great and can help many people, but again these are usually inadequate on their own to provide complete recovery from adrenal fatigue or adrenal burnout. The adrenals need to rest deeply when you sleep in order to regain their strength and many of these products can worsen insomnia.

That is why a full nutritional balancing program that includes vitamins and minerals, medicinal herbs, glandular extracts, amino acids, and digestive aids with dietary guidelines and lifestyle adjustments is the most complete and successful holistic treatment with Adrenal fatigue supplements.

Nutritional Balancing Supplements are a line of products that I use to help people recover from Adrenal fatigue. These Adrenal fatigue supplements are prescribed based on the results of Hair Mineral Analysis. These test results provide a blueprint by which we can accurately prescribe vitamins, minerals, and herbal supplements in the correct dosage and proportions to effectively match your body's exact nutritional needs for increased energy production.

B vitamins such as Pantothenic acid (B5), Pyridoxal-5-phosphate (B6), Niacin (B3), Folic acid (B9), and Methylcobalamin (B12) are an indispensable part of any adrenal fatigue supplement program, but when given in improper dosage or ratios for your specific metabolic type, they can worsen your condition and make you feel even worse. Zinc and Magnesium are also essential minerals in the rebuilding of the adrenals and energy producing enzymatic pathways, but without a proper balance of other nutrients, these can lower Sodium levels to such a degree that your adrenals actually shut down.

Nutritional Balancing programs are a highly individualized and precisely formulated adrenal fatigue supplement program, consisting of vitamins and minerals, amino acids, digestive aids, bovine glandular extracts and Chinese Herbal formulas that are combined in such a way to optimize cellular energy production by balancing your Sodium, Potassium, Calcium and Magnesium tissue levels which will enahance your cell permeability, mineral solubility, regulate your metabolic rate, and help stabilize the adrenal stress response which is the underlying cause of most cases of adrenal fatigue. By relaxing the overexcited "sympathetic nervous system" we are able to get the adrenal glands to rest long enough to be able to truly utilize the nutritional support we are providing in specific dosage to your needs.

If you are looking for a more simplistic approach to using adrenal fatigue supplements, I recommend trying the products listed below, as I have found them to be very effective at boosting energy levels and supporting adrenal function, without being too stimulating.

Recommended Adult Dosage 1-2 Tablets, 2-3 times daily

50 mg. excipients & binders: silicon dioxide, stearic acid, microcellulose coating.

Recommended Adult Dosage 1-2 Tablets, 2-3 times daily

Cordyceps is a type of fungus that grows on caterpillars. It grows inside of an insect, such as a caterpillar until it has completely turned the entire structure of the caterpillar into a Cordyceps mushroom.

The Cordyceps has been harvested and used as an energy tonic in China and Tibet for centuries. Cordyceps is an extremely potent energy and immune enhancing adrenal fatigue supplement which is especially useful for increasing our respiratory function and enhancing physical stamina by increasing the amount of oxygen into the blood and tissues.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Cordyceps is said to nourish the Lungs and Kidneys. Cordyceps can strongly nourish our sexual organs by increasing sperm and egg production, enhancing libido, reducing premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction.

Cordyceps is also extremely effective treatment for low killer T-cell count and therefore strongly enhances our immunity against viral and bacterial infection. If you tend to catch colds frequently or if they hang around for a long time when you do, Cordyceps, along with Shiitake, and Reishi mushrooms may be essential to helping you regain a healthy immune system by moderating overactive immune response while boost an underactive immune system. This is called an "adaptogenic" product since it adapts to your needs.

Ingredients: Polyrachis Ant, Tibetan Rhodiola, Gynostemma (Jiao Gu Lan), Siberian Ginseng aka Eleuthero (Ci Wu jia), Schizandra berries (Wu Wei Zi), Astragalus root (Huang Qi), Duanwood Reishi (Ling Zhi), Lycium berries (Gou Qi Zi), Licorice (Gan Cao)

This high quality herbal formulation is made from 10 highly powerful Adaptogen herbs that support the adrenals and also help to calm the nervous system against stress.

Adaptogens are powerful herbs which have a dual function of both being energizing and calming, supporting the immune system and also helping to fight off infections. Their function is determined by what your body needs in that particular moment.

Polyrachis Ant

Ants are extremely rich in nutrients, including significant amounts of vitamins B1, B2, B12, D and E. Ant contains more than 42% protein and provide 8 essential amino acids. It contains enzymes and other active substances. The ATP in ants can provide energy directly to the human body. Ants are rich in more than 20 trace elements such as magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, iron, selenium, and especially zinc.

Polyrachis is extremely rich in zinc. The zinc content of Polyrachis is the highest among all known living organisms. Every gram of dried ants contains 180 mg. of zinc. This undoubtedly explains part of ant’s strong beneficial influence on sexuality, as zinc is a critical element in the human sexual function. In Japan, Zinc has been called “harmony element” because it creates harmony between couples---it is a powerful sex-improving element. These chemicals seem to have an influence on the way that zinc is utilized. Studies have shown that regular use of ant tonics can prevent and treat disorders associated with zinc deficiency, including senile cataract, night blindness, incontinence, and sexual dysfunction, including impotence, spermatorrhea and premature ejaculation in men and menorrhagia, frigidity and climacteric symptoms in women.

Ant has a bipolar (double-direction) immuno-regulatory activity. It thus fortifies a weakened immune system and modifies an overactive immune system. Ant can have a very beneficial effect on autoimmune disorders such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gouty arthritis, alkolyzing spondylitis, scleroderma, psoriasis, and some studies indicate significant tumor reducing effects when ant is consumed in therapeutic dosages. Ant has been used clinically for the following disorders in China and other Asian nations: rheumatoid and other forms of arthritis, sciatic neuralgia, hepatitis B, neurosis, insomnia, diabetes mellitus, tuberculosis, asthma, dermatomyositis, tumor, hypertension, and more.

Polyrachis vicina, Polyrachis lamellidns and other species of nutritional ant have been demonstrated to have liver protective activity by lowering the activity of SGPT, a liver enzyme (detail). It can also, to a certain degree, prevent liver cells from turning into fat. Polyrachis has been demonstrated to be very useful in the treatment of both acute and chronic hepatitis B. Recent research indicates that hepatitis B, both chronic and acute, is due to immune deficiency and that the hepatitis virus is itself opportunistic. Therefore, strengthening the immune system as a whole is essential and invaluable in treating hepatitis B. Ant serves this role very effectively because of its dual role as an immune tonic and a liver protector.

Polyrachis also has anxiolytic, anti-cough, analgesic, anti-spasmotic, anti-asthmatic, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-oncologic and anti-arthritic functions in studies done throughout Asia.

Recent research demonstrated that Polyrachis can promote the growth, and prevent the shrinkage, of the thymus gland, which generally shrinks as one grows older. The thymus is one of the important immune system organs of the body. Ants can stimulate the production of lymphocytes when the body is under microbial attack, and can improve replication of the lymphocytes. Ants increase the amount of active immune cells. Extensive research now verifies that ant has a bipolar immune function.

Ant can increase the amount of DNA and RNA inside of human cells. This is believed to slow down aging and to aid in the regeneration, and even rejuvenation of tissue.

A unique set of aldehyde compounds found in all edible species of Polyrachis has been demonstrated to have a stronger tonic action than ginseng, and it has thus far been impossible to synthesize this chemical. These aldehydes compounds include geranicaldehyde (C10H16O) and formalindehyde (HCHO, C10H14O). It is believed to be a result of these and several similar aldehydes, as well as some other chemicals in ant, that give ants their enormous physical strength---and ultimately give the consumers of ant the well-established increase in strength.

Polyrachis is not a source of hormones and are absolutely free of synthetic chemicals.

Some facts about ants: Ants can lift up to 400 times their own weight and pull up to 1700 times their own weight, making them the world champions in terms of strength. Ant contains 8-13 times the protein of milk, chicken, duck, beef, mutton and fish.

Cortisol and Adrenal Fatigue

Cortisol is a stress hormone which is produced by the adrenal medulla. Cortisol helps to raise blood sugar levels in order to provide quick energy by converting fats and proteins into glucose, which is then used by the mitochondria in the formation of ATP or cellular energy.

One of the main signs of Adrenal Fatigue is Hypoglycemia. This is because as Cortisol production declines due to adrenal insufficiency, our body's ability to stabilize blood sugar levels between meals is greatly reduced. Low Cortisol levels causes us to have intense sugar cravings to help rescue our plummeting blood sugar levels which is unable to be moderated due to a lack of the adrenal hormone Cortisol.

Cortisol levels are indicated on a Hair Analysis chart by the Potassium levels. Potassium is released from inside of cells and tissues as fats and proteins are used as fuel to stabilize blood sugar levels. The Atkins diet works by starving the blood of simple sugars so that the body has to convert the excess fat and glycogen in the Liver into glucose to provide energy, thus reducing body fat. If there is not enough Cortisol production by the adrenals, this conversion of fats and proteins to stabilize blood sugar levels will not take place.

Taking synthetic cortisone steroids can be a life saver if you are hit with an acute infection so severe, but your adrenal burnout condition is unable to produce the Cortisol required to reduce inflammation and power the autoimmune response. However, taking Costisone injections or orally can have many side effects since your adrenals literally shut down production of your own Cortisol since it is getting an outside source of that hormone. The same is true for Melatonin. If melatonin is taken for too long, the pineal gland will stop its production of your body's own natural melatonin.

By providing the nutritional basis for Adrenal hormones such as Aldosterone, Cortisol, Epinephrine, Norepinephrine, and DHEA, you help give the adrenals the tools to rebuild themselves and overcome Adrenal fatigue with natural substances such as Vitamin A, E, B vitamins, folic acid, Vitamin D, C Magnesium and Calcium in chelated form, along with trace minerals such as Selenium, Boron, and Chromium for added absorption in the intestines.

When one is in Adrenal burnout, they are usually in a Slow oxidizer metabolic rate because the hormones that power the revved up sympathetic nervous system that demand increased energy production are now in decline. This causes the metabolic rate to slow down as in Hypothyroidism. The adrenals and thyroid gland work closely together in maintaining a healthy immune response and energy production through the actions of their hormones on all of the cells in the body.

However, most people who are now in need of adrenal fatigue supplements got to where they are by being stuck in overdrive, or a Fast oxidizer metabolic rate. This means that if you use adrenal fatigue supplements that speed up the metabolic rate, this will be like drinking coffee which does the same thing. It will extract the very last hormones form the Adrenals at a much quicker rate, leaving that person even more fatigued than before.
