Supporting the adrenal glands is an essential part of maintaining optimum health.The adrenal glands are located at the top of each kidney and produce hormones that help the body control blood sugar, burn protein and fat, react to stressors like a major illness or injury and regulate blood pressure. Adrenal function can be impaired by prolonged stress resulting in “adrenal exhaustion” by over-use and/or excessive production of adrenaline as well as aldosterone and cortisol. DHEA is another important hormone produced by the adrenal glands and is a precursor to the male and female hormones androgen and estrogen. DHEA levels begin to decrease after age 30 and more quickly in women and impact hormonal disorders, HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer's disease, heart disease, depression, diabetes, inflammation, immune disorders, and osteoporosis. When supporting adrenal glands the use of glandular extracts provides the exact building material (polypeptides) to promote repair. Birth control pills, corticosteroids and psychotropic drugs reduce DHEA levels.
Because adrenal problems are associated with "stress", weight gain and many other health issues it may be necessary to address multiple organ systems to achieve optimum systemic health. I recommend an excellent multi vitamin, with essential fatty acid and additional magnesium and anti-inflammatory herbs to help support adrenal healing.
An appropriate baseline supplement program would be:
Ultra Preventive X (tabs), AdrenoMend, Ora-Adren 80, I B Comfort, Multi Probiotics 40 Billion, EPA/GLA Forte, Ginger Root Max-V, Ayur-Curcumin, Ayur-Ashwagandha, Astragalus Max-V and Magnesium Taurate 400, If there are associated anxiety issues add Brain Calm.
This is a 90 day program and addresses multiple organ systems associated with adrenal dysfunction.
