Pure Essence Labs - AdrenalStability - 30 Vegetarian Capsules
Pure Essence Labs AdrenalStability is botanical blend support for the adrenal glands. The adrenal glands produce hormones that help to maintain blood pressure already within the normal range, regulating the metabolism of fats, proteins and carbohydrates into energy, modulating immune response, lessening temporary inflammation that occurs from over-exerting oneself during intensive training and supporting the body's natural stress response. They also produce small amounts of sex hormones that, while normally overshadowed by those made in the ovaries and testes, can play a vital role in helping aging men and women retain their vigor while minimizing the effects of andropause and menopause.
- Botanical Blend Support for the Adrenal Glands
- Does Not Contain Artificial Colors or Flavors, GMOs, Dairy, Gluten or Wheat
- No Animal Testing
- Suitable for Vegetarians.
Unfortunately, the high stress nature of the modern world can cause the adrenals to work at a nearly constant level. This can lead to what many natural health practitioners label, "Adrenal Fatigue." Adrenal fatigue may contribute to such things as lack of energy, fatigue, occasional difficulty in sleeping and decreased libido. Solutions include avoiding stress, employing relaxation techniques, eliminating factors that trigger adrenal response (like sugars, caffeine, alcohol, tobacco, and recreational drugs) and getting plenty of whole, healthy nutrition.
Holistic health sciences, like Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda, have long used botanicals like holy basil, rhodiola, cordyceps, ashwagandha, schizandra and eleuthero as nutritional support for the adrenal glands. AdrenalStability combines these nutritious plants into an amazing formula. The holy basil is extracted by a proprietary process that retains both the water and soluble fractions. The rhodiola comes directly from Siberia, and is one of only two legitimate Siberian products on the market. AdrenalStability not only employs the plants that the world's foremost holistic science have used for this purpose for thousands of years, but utilizes the purest, cleanest sources available.
About Pure Essence Labs
The Pure Essence Mission - East Meets West
Pure Essence Labs was founded to offer high quality, safe and effective dietary supplement formulas to benefit human health, while demonstrating a firm commitment to planetary ecology. They strive to promote not only holistic health care, but holistic lifestyle. In their opinion, true holism means relating to their employees, suppliers, retailers and customers as partners along the path. In short, they see every aspect of business as extensions of themselves.
Pure Essence Labs' products are formulated with an ideal balance of East meets West working in synergistic harmony. They are true Holistic Health Systems that support your body in achieving and maintaining optimum health. They often blend Traditional Chinese Medicine concepts and herbs with modern vitamin knowledge, which they believe offers a thoughtful and well-informed approach to supporting good health.
In every moment of every day, your cells are conducting more than a million different types of biochemical actions. Health is the reflection of how well these cells are working. To function efficiently, cells require a vast array of nutrients. In a perfect world, these nutrients would come from foods, but in today's world that's harder than it sounds. With busy lifestyles, it's not always possible to eat high quality food prepared fresh.
Supplements that meet Pure Essence Labs' holistic criteria are those with whole food value. Why do they make their products this way? Because Nature is the model by which you build and maintain superior health. To be completely honest, there are many good supplements out there but they believe their's to be exceptional. Pure Essence Labs make them for their families, and share them with yours.
- Vitamins and Minerals - Many companies promote their vitamins and minerals as being in "whole food" form. However, often what they mean is synthetic vitamins or rock-based minerals fermented with yeast and soy. Pure Essence Labs takes a different approach by using natural USP vitamins and minerals and then support them with SuperFoods, Superior Herbs and phytochemicals.
- SuperFoods - They include many SuperFoods like spirulina, chlorella and kelp, that are very dense nutritional sources incorporating phytochemicals that support cellular function throughout the body. The more of them you get, the better off you'll be.
- Superior Herbs - Superior Herbs are phytochemicals that are not generally part of the diet. These phytochemicals protect and support good health while also fine tuning organs, glands, and cells in the body for greater efficiency and better health.
In 2008, Pure Essence Labs made the decision to build a state of the art laboratory in their home office. Having their own independent lab allows them to test each and every ingredient from their vendors, to guarantee not only the quality of ingredients, but purity from toxins, lead, and other heavy metals. If, during testing, they conclude the ingredients aren't as pure and clean as they'd like, they find other raw material vendors that can supply them with the quality they are looking for.
In order to help to ensure their lab's continued accuracy, Pure Essence Labs sends random samples to third party labs to confirm the results. They also participate in a federal government program wherein they analyze blind samples and submit their results to a government laboratory. They then check their results and report the findings to Pure Essence Labs. They have never been outside the range of exemplary accuracy.
A brief synopsis of Pure Essence Labs' assay capacities are as follows:
Nothing is more important to quality than using the right raw materials. To assure the identity of every ingredient in their products, Pure Essence Labs employs Thin Layer Chromotography (TLC) which identifies a substance when compared to a known sample of that same substance. The sample will then undergo further confirmation using Ultraviolet Spectrometry (UVS) and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR).
Without knowing an ingredient's potency, it is impossible to determine how much should be used. To measure the nutritional activity of each ingredient, they use High Performance Liquid Chromotography (HPLC).
Mineral and Heavy Metal Quantification
Just as minerals are vital nutrients, heavy metals are "mineral-like" substances they wish to avoid. Inductively Coupled Plasma Spectroscopy (with microwave digestion) reveals the levels of every mineral, trace element and heavy metal in a given material. It is the same process the State of California uses to measure minerals and metals for the purpose of enforcing Proposition 65.
Yeast, Molds, Bacteria
Many raw materials and all finished products must be tested for the presence of micro-organisms. Because these tests are highly specialized, they have them performed at third party labs.
Pure Essence Labs absolutely does not do any animal testing, whatsoever.
The National Sanitation Foundation (now known as NSF International) is a global independent organization that writes standards and protocols, and tests and certifies products for the food, water and consumer goods industries to minimize adverse health effects and protect the environment. NSF operates in over 150 countries, providing world class services through rigorous quality management systems, and a continuous process of calibration. Founded in 1944, NSF is a Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization Collaborating Center on Food Safety, Water Quality, and Indoor Environment.
NSF certification ensures that dietary supplements do not contain unacceptable levels of contaminants. NSF/ANSI 173 was developed with participation from the dietary supplements industry, public health regulators, and distributors of dietary supplements. Participation and technical guidance was provided by industry trade and consumer groups.
NSF has worked for over a decade with sports organizations, anti-doping agencies, and supplement manufacturers to evaluate and test these products and to help ensure their quality and safety. NSF's Dietary Supplement Program offers exclusive third-party auditing, product testing, and development to ensure that companies maintain the highest safety and quality possible. This certification is not mandated by any regulatory agency or governmental body, but demonstrates Pure Essence Labs' commitment to their customer's health. NSF registration and certification provides peace of mind and demonstrates that Pure Essence Labs is committed to the excellence of their products.
