The adrenal glands are essential organs in regulating stress and other body functions by producing hormones, such as cortisol. By supplying targeted nutrients for the adrenal glands, Adrenal Complex helps them to work properly to maintain balance and focus in the face of stress.† The combination of eleuthero, licorice and adrenal extracts - along with zinc, and vitamins A and C, support the adrenal glands without stimulant ingredients that can add to stress.†
The adrenal glands, situated just above the kidneys, are triangular-shaped organs that consist of two regions. The adrenal medulla (the inner core) secretes epinephrine and norepinephrine (adrenaline). The adrenal cortex (the tissue surrounding the medulla) secretes over 30 hormones, such as aldosterone, cortisol, and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). All these hormones are used to regulate functions in the body, including energy production, immunity, heart rate, and the stress response.1,2 Commonly known as the “stress hormone,” cortisol plays a key role in the regulation of blood pressure, the conversion of protein into glucose, the inhibition of inflammation, and in the regulation of the immune system. The release of cortisol from the adrenal glands is regulated by the pituitary gland. Low cortisol levels trigger the pituitary to release the stimulating hormone adrenocorticotropin (ACTH), which in turn prompts the adrenal glands to secrete cortisol.3 At a basal rate, human adrenal glands normally produce about 20 mg of cortisol each day, but with sustained stimulation, that output increases dramatically.4 A constant state of stress depletes the body's coping mechanisms, one of them being support of the adrenal glands and cortisol production. Given the pace of modern life, it's not surprising that many individuals feel fatigued and worn out. Some of the signs of built up stress may include indigestion, lack of energy, appetite changes, anger, racing thoughts, and hypersensitivity.5 Because of the link between stress and adrenal gland function, fatigue and lack of energy associated with the cumulative effect of stress is sometimes called “adrenal fatigue” or “adrenal burnout.”
