Natural Sources - Raw Adrenal - 60 Capsules
Natural Sources Raw Adrenal is a glandular extract that supports adrenal function, the glands that secrete hormones and provide support for stress, allergies, muscle tone, blood-sugar balance, endurance, energy, blood circulation, and sodium/water balance. Natural Sources Raw Adrenal is a dietary supplement. Raw Adrenal Glandular Concentrate contains a Synergistic Complex, in new easy to digest capsules. Raw tissue concentrates from New Zealand are made from toxin-free lyophilized glands from animals grazed on rangeland free of pesticides, growth hormones, antibiotics or chemical additives.
The adrenal glands sit atop the kidneys. Each gland actually comprises two separate organs. The covering of the gland, or adrenal cortex, produces about 50 different steroid hormones. Some of these hormones direct the conversion of dietary protein and fat into glucose: others suppress inflammation and promote healing: others regulate blood imbalance in the kidney: yet others work like sex hormones, fueling the sex drive and promoting male characteristics like the development of muscle mass and facial hair.
The second part of the adrenal is the interior, or medulla. The principal hormone produced by the medulla is adrenaline, which raises blood pressure. stimulates respiration.and accelerates the metabolic rate.Adrenaline prompts the body's fight-or-flight response to challenges and emergencies.
When under stress, the adrenal gland beings to manufacture hormones at an accelerated rate. The adrenal gland synthesized epinephrine, norepinephrine, and corticosteroids, which travel to specific target organs designed to counter stress. The gland, however, cannot maintain this pace for extended periods of time without depleting its supply of nutrients and the cells becoming tired.
Allergies, Healing, Arthritis:
Properly functioning adrenals are vital in many of life's processes. In healing, the steroid hormones of the adrenal gland play an important role in reducing inflammation and in regulating the immune response. This allows the body to heal quickly with less pain and discomfort.
For athletes, the androgens produced in the adrenal gland are required for the synthesis of large masses of muscle tissue and for proper distribution.
Aging is a disease which results from a lifetime of stress. The hormones produced and excreted by the adrenal permits you to live through everyday stressful situations.Aging spots result from the overproduction of melanin stimulating hormones (MSH). Low cortisol levels in the bloodstream, allows this overproduction of MSH.
Another problem in aging is menopause. When the ovaries cease their production of estrogen and other androgens, the adrenal must take over and produce more of these hormones to maintain adequate blood levels.
