Introducing Palo Alto Labs: Reset AD
RE-Stim your Stimulant
You spend twelve stressful hours a day at work, you bust your ass in the gym each and every night, you've got a wife that constantly gives you a hard time and you never seem to sleep enough. Face it, you're flat worn out from all the stress, and the only thing that keeps you going are the energy drinks and the fat burners that you're constantly throwing down. Like millions of others around you, you are suffering from Adrenal Fatigue, a chronic condition brought about by long periods of intense exposure to stress, sleep deprivation and overuse of stimulants.
Introducing Reset-A.D., the first of its kind supplement, designed specifically to resensitize your adrenal system to stimulants while helping to improve overall adrenal function and aid in the alleviation of fatigue, weight gain and muscle weakness brought about due to the over-exertion of our adrenal system. Reset-A.D. has been formulated to offer needed support to the over-taxed adrenal gland and provide your body with many of the missing adrenal hormones that are no longer being adequately produced.
What you've probably also noticed is that the stimulants that you've been throwing down, just don't have the same kick anymore. All those preworkout powders and fatburners and energy drinks you take just to get you pumped for your workout, and they just don't seem to be cutting it anymore. You even wonder if the formula of your favorite product has been changed without you knowing. The formula hasn't been changed in most cases, you've just become DESENSITIZED to the effects of stimulants because of poor adrenal function.
Reset-A.D. is NOT a stimulant, and has NOT been designed to replace any of the stimulant products in your arsenal. It has been specifically formulated to work in close concert with your preworkout and fatburning products as a stimulant facilator in order to give you the maximum perfomance boost in your workouts and throughout the rest of your day.
What is Adrenal Fatigue?
Adrenal Fatigue is the result of the declining function of the adrenal glands and the ability to no longer adequately meet the demands of stress. Unbeknownst to most, the adrenal glands provide a very important, and often overlooked function. They are fully responsible for responding to every form of stress, whether it is psychological, emotional or physical, through complex hormones that regulate energy production & storage, muscle tone and heart rate. When our adrenal glands become weakened, their response to stress becomes inadequate and adrenal fatigue begins to set in. The result often manifests itself as a deep fatigue, loss of strength & endurance, weight gain or mild depression. In order to continue on in our daily lives, we compensate for our fatigue by overdosing on stimulants. What very few of us realizes is that overexposure to stimulants found in energy drinks, coffee and fat burners exacerbates the weakening function of the adrenal glands. Overuse of stimulants puts additional stress on the adrenal system, and is the equivalent of giving way too much gas and flooding out the engine of your car. As adrenal fatigue worsens, the positive "lifting" affect of stimulant products lessens until they really don't seem to work anymore. In an Ideal world, one that none of us actually live in, treatment of Adrenal Fatigue requires 9 to 12 months of minimal stress, sleeping late, taking naps multiple times per day and taking negative people out of our lives. Yeah right, fat chance of that.
Symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue:
- Morning Fatigue. Not seeming to "wake up" until 10am even though you've been up for 3 hours.
- Middle of the Afternoon "Low"
- Sluggishness and clouded thinking in the middle of the day.
- Burst of Energy around 6pm
- Sleepiness around 9pm, but a "Second Energy Burst" around 11pm till 1am.
- Mild Depression, Decreased Sex Drive and Lack of Energy
- Muscular Weakness and declining endurance
- Weight gain, with extreme difficulty in losing it
- Unrelaxing or Unfulfilling Sleep
The Adrenal Glands
The adrenal system is exclusively responsible for how the human body copes with and responds to all forms of stress, whether physical, psychological or emotional through the production and release of complex hormones that regulate the storage and production of energy, muscle tone and heart rate. The adrenals produce many extremely important, but often overlooked hormones such as adrenaline, norepinephrine, cortisone aldosterone.
We live in a society in which we are constantly inundated by psychological and physical stress factors. These stress factors come at us in the form of Job Stress, relationship stress, increasingly longer work hours and overuse of stimulants such as caffeine and ephedra. Unlike our predecessors of the previous centuries, today’s American never takes a break and just relaxes. We work long hours, have increasingly greater financial responsibilities, sleep less and generally just beat the living hell out of bodies on a consistent basis.
Over time, the beating that our body takes from stress factors, begins to take a very noticeable toll on the normal function of our adrenal glands. Our adrenal glands that have always provided us with an adequate defense against outside stress no longer have the ability to function at 100% due to being overtaxed on a non-stop basis. Energy regulating hormones that are necessary for us to enjoy life, work like days and just function on a normal schedule are no longer able to be produced by the adrenal glands in the same quantity as before. The reduction in these energy controlling hormones causes fatigue to set in. In order to compensate for this fatigue, the average person increases their daily intake of stimulants. As adrenal function continues to decline, the average person becomes less and less sensitive to stimulants and other energy boosting products.
How does Reset-A.D. work?
Palo Alto Labs understands that no one is ever going to radically change their active lifestyle soley because of fatigue. For this reason we have chosen to completely ignore the traditional method of treating adrenal fatigue, in which one isolates oneself from all stress factors (including stimulants), in order to provide you with an effective real world solution. Reset-A.D. has been formulated to offer needed support to the over-taxed adrenal gland and provide your body with many of the missing adrenal hormones that are no longer being adequately produced due to overexposure to stress factors. The ingredients found in Reset-A.D. have not only been shown in studies to help take some of the workload off the adrenal system so it can repair itself naturally, but also have been found to promote the increased production of energy regulating hormones. Reducing the burden on the adrenal system, and providing it with ingredients needed to facilitate production of stress reducing hormones, enables the adrenal glands to recover to near full functional capacity. Poorly functioning adrenal glands, for the most part don't respond well to the effects of stimulants. Over time, Reset-A.D. enables the adrenal glands to more adequately respond to stimulants through the increased production of energy regulating hormones. This translates to a much greater energetic kick from the fat burners and energy drinks that we use on a daily basis.

Q. What factors cause Adrenal Fatigue?
Adrenal fatigue occurs when the adrenal glands become overworked due to the cumulative effects of stress factors. As the human body senses stress, whether it be psychological, physical, or emotional, the adrenal glands react by producing adrenaline and norepinepherine in response. The cumulative effect of non-stop stressors, including stimulant products causes a compounding effect on the adrenal glands. At a certain point, the adrenal glands "give up" and stop functioning at full capacity. This can lead to depression, weight gain, fatigue and many other side effects.
Q. How Does Reset-A.D. work to address Adrenal Fatigue?
Reset-A.D. has been formulated to offer needed support to the over-taxed adrenal gland and provide your body with many of the missing adrenal hormones that are no longer being adequately produced due to overexposure to stress factors. The ingredients found in Reset-A.D. have not only been shown in studies to help take some of the workload off the adrenal system so it can repair itself naturally, but also have been found to promote the increased production of energy regulating hormones.

OFFICIAL RESET AD FAQ's , INFORMATION , AND RESEARCH
Bovine Adrenal Tissue:
This is desiccated bovine adrenal gland. Adrenal tissue is particularly important in the initial phases of adrenal repair since it provides raw materials to support adrenal function. It also contains some important adrenal hormones. By including Adrenal Tissue it relieves the adrenal glands' burden and allows the following to occur:
*Relief from the symptoms of poorly functioning adrenals much sooner than waiting for the adrenals to become healthy again ? a process that can take weeks or months.
*Significantly faster adrenal recovery
This is very important in the begining stages of adrenal fatigue. It contains essential hormones and nutrients to help restore adrenal function.
Licorice helps to reduce the amount of hydrocortisone broken down by the liver, thereby reducing the workload of the adrenal glands. Licorice quickly tones the adrenals by relaxing and strengthening them to continue pumping out adrenaline but in more calculated amounts. Licorice has been found to have a very beneficial and nourishing effect on the adrenal glands as long as some portion of the gland is healthy. Addison's disease, which decreases adrenal cortex secretions, has been treated with success with licorice extracts. Licorice is known to stimulate the production of the cortin hormone which is useful when the body is under mental and emotional stress and helps with the coping process.
Pantothenic acid is one of the key components in helping promote adrenal health. Once inside the body, pantothenic acid forms a substance called pantethine, which is further converted into an enzyme called ?Co-enzyme A.? Co-enzyme A is an extremely important compound and is essential in the metabolism of protein, fat, and carbohydrates. It is also the starting spoint for the body's production of adrenal steroids, cholesterol, bile, and haemoglobin. Pantethine allows the adrenal glands to generate more cortisone which is an anti-stress hormone. With more cortisone produced, the body's inflammatory response is reduced. The increased production of cortisone and other adrenal hormones stimulated by Pantothenic acid helps counteract stress and enhance metabolism.
Pregnenolone is the building block of all the adrenal hormones and exerts a powerful effect on the brain, enhance memory and brings about feelings of well-being while significantly improving your ability to deal with stress. Pregnenolone serves as a precursor in your body to other hormones, including dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and progesterone.
It has been suggested that Pregnenolone may play a role in the neuroendocrine response to stress. During periods of stress, the output of adrenal steroids increases. The increased output of these steroids has been associated with increased fatigue in army pilots resulting in poor performance. In a study of pilots under stress, pregnenolone therapy (25 mg, twice daily) improved performance with no adverse side effects.
In another experiment, 25-75 mg of pregnenolone were given daily to 8 leather cutters, 12 lathe operators, and 77 optical workers. While there was little benefit compared to placebo when the workers were not ?under pressure,? productivity rose when the level of work-related stress was higher. Once again, the effect outlasted the length of the study. The subjects also felt that they tired less easily and were better able to cope with the demands of their jobs. No side effects were reported in any of these studies.
The inhibition of GABA release is also thought to enhance mood by preventing the brain from becoming too sluggish and lethargic. Pregnenolone's ability to control GABA levels strongly suggests that this hormone may be a valuable addition to the arsenal of antidepressant medications, especially considering its lack of side effects. By its very nature, pregnenolone works with your body to achieve optimal health and longevity. Pregnenolone's many functions underscore its role as one of the most important hormones in the human body. Pregnenolone reduces fatigue and increases endurance. It also provides the brain with the hormonal and neurotransmitter support it needs to retard memory loss, thus helping to improve concentration and focus.
There has not been alot of studies on Pregnenolone in the past few decades since all of the studies have been done on Cortisone. Cortisone was able to be patented, but since Pregnenolone is natural, not too many research groups conducted research since there was no profit potential from it.
?In the 1940s, pregnenolone was tested in people who were sick or under stress, and it was found to have a wide range of beneficial actions, but the drug industry never had much interest in it. Its very generality made it seem unlike a drug, and its natural occurrence made it impossible to patent. Thus, many synthetic variants, each with a more specialized action and some serious side effects, came to be patented and promoted for use in treating specific conditions. The drug companies created an atmosphere in which many people felt that each disease should have a drug, and each drug, a disease. The side effects of some of those synthetic hormones were so awful that many people came to fear them. For example, synthetic varieties of "cortisone" can destroy immunity, and can cause osteoporosis, diabetes, and rapid aging, with loss of pigment in the skin and hair, and extreme thinning of the skin.
Natural pregnenolone is present in young people of both sexes at a very high concentration, and one reason for the large amount produced in youth is that it is one of our basic defenses against the harmful side effects that an imbalance of even our natural hormones can produce. In excess, natural cortisone or estrogen can be dangerous, but when there is an abundance of pregnenolone, their side effects are prevented or minimized.
In a healthy young person or animal, taking even a large dose of pregnenolone has no hormone-like or drug-like action at all. It is unique in this way. But if the animal or person is under stress, and producing more cortisone than usual, taking pregnenolone causes the cortisone to come down to the normal level. After the age of 40 or 45, it seems that everyone lives in a state of continuous "stress," just as a normal part of aging. This coincides with the body's decreased ability to produce an abundance of pregnenolone.?
Schizandra is a recognized "adaptogen," capable of increasing the body's ability to resist both disease and stress. Scientific studies demonstrate Schizandra's ability to increase work capacity, exercise capacity, mental capacity, and adaptability to darkness and other environmental stresses in both animal and human studies. While alleviating stress and fighting fatigue, schizandra has been shown to help improve the overall health of the adrenals.

Nutritional Approaches to Stress and Fatigue
Gregory Pouls, D.C., F.I.C.N, & Maile Pouls, Ph.D.
Are you feeling stressed these days? Who isn't? Life in America was already stressful before the tragedies in New York and Washington, D.C. Now, with a prolonged war, relentless media coverage, and threat of terrorist?s reprisals, everyone is on edge. Many are turning to prescription or recreational drugs or alcohol to help cope with their stress. This may help alleviate the problem temporarily; however, drugs and alcohol often cause side effects, dependency, and actually add more stress to the body. This article will offer you methods for approaching stress and fatigue from a healthy, natural perspective. By learning how your diet and lifestyle affect your body and how to support the organs and glands your body uses to deal with stress using targeted nutrition, you can arm your body with a natural stress defense system? that will protect you through difficult times without side effects or dependency.
What Is Stress?
Stress is the reaction of the body to any stimulus or interference that disturbs mental or physical health or normal functioning. Stress is caused by illness, pain, emotional upset, or by external circumstances such as losing a job, or the death of a spouse or family member. In today?s society, stress affects everyone. The body cannot differentiate between positive and negative stress. Even happy events, such as a wedding or awards presentation, can be very stressful to the body. The body does not seem to differentiate between whether a stress is emotional, financial, nutritional, biochemical or environmental. All stresses take their toll.
One of the greatest general stresses you can place on the body is nutritional deficiency. This forces the body into a balancing act where it must constantly redirect energy. This leaves the human machine running in a limited capacity waiting for a breakdown.
FACTORS THAT INCREASE NUTRITIONAL NEEDS AND CONTRIBUTE TO STRESS AND DISEASE
- Lack of exercise, clean air, and pure water
- Lack of sleep or relaxation
- Depletion of minerals (caused by consuming sugar and commercial foods)
- Exposure to pesticides, herbicides, and other human-made chemicals
- Use of antibiotics, corticosteroids, and immune suppressing prescription drugs
- Use of other prescription or recreational drugs, alcohol, or tobacco
- Consumption of junk foods, excessive in sugar, oils, fats, and heavy proteins
- Lack of enzymes (caused by consuming mainly cooked, refined, processed food)
- Poor digestion and/or assimilation of nutrients
- Increased emotional and environmental stresses
- Individual and unique biochemical needs.
Which Physical Symptoms and Conditions are Caused By Stress?
A certain amount of stress in our lives is considered normal; however, prolonged bouts of stress can lead to fatigue, exhaustion, minor illness, immune suppression, and finally chronic degenerative conditions in the body. Chronic stress negatively affects the immune system. I have found that a very high percentage of my patients who have allergies also have adrenal gland stress and/or exhaustion. Many people attribute their stress-related symptoms to ?nerves.? In fact, stress affects the parts of the body that are related to stress: the nervous system (especially through the digestive and intestinal systems) and the adrenal and thyroid glands (hormone-producing glands). 1.
Initial symptoms of stress-related disorders may be back pain, headaches, and neck aches. Other health conditions precipitated by stress include cardiovascular conditions, colitis, depression, diarrhea, digestive disorders, dizziness, gastric and intestinal ulcers, hair loss, high blood pressure, impotence or lack of sexual interest, insomnia, irritability, loss of appetite, anxiety and nervous disorders, obsessive-compulsive behaviors, premenstrual syndrome and menstrual disorders, skin conditions, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndromes (jaw pain and clicking), and weight loss or gain (anxiety eating). 2.
Stress Solutions: Healthy Diet and Lifestyle
People who have healthy lifestyles and diets generally have more energy to cope with stressful situations. A healthy diet involves making time to plan, prepare, and eat healthy meals in an environment that is not stressful, and by eating a diet rich in a variety of foods, including fruits, grains, and vegetables. For optimal health, (for people who do not have a medically restricted diet) fresh fruits and fresh and cooked vegetables should make up 50% to 75% of your diet. 3.
Eating ?fast food? on the run is very stressful to the body in many ways. In addition to providing nutritionally deficient meals, eating high-calorie, high-fat, high-salt, high-sugar, and highly processed or overcooked foods often leads to weight gain, which places additional stress on the body. I recommend that you try to avoid or reduce all foods that place stress on the body or require excessive energy from the body to digest and assimilate, such as artificial colors and sweeteners, preservatives, carbonated colas and sodas, fried foods, red meats, white flour foods, and most packaged, processed snack foods. A rule of thumb I offer my patients is to, ?Eat more foods that look like they came off a tree, from a plant, or out of the ground, buy organic whenever possible, and try fruits and vegetables that are colorful (green, yellow, red, orange, or purple) as these are the foods naturally high in enzymes, fiber, minerals, and vitamins. The more a food is cooked, packaged, processed and refined, the more it will be lacking in enzymes and nutrients and containing higher levels of chemicals and industrial toxins.?
Healthy lifestyles involve taking the time to engage in certain healthy hobbies and activities, such as aerobic exercise, weight training, yoga, dancing, running, swimming, walking, rebounding on a mini-trampoline, and bicycling, while avoiding detrimental habits such as smoking and drinking alcohol or caffeinated beverages. Whenever possible, get outdoors, be around plants and flowers, play with animals, take some deep breaths, and stretch. Getting enough rest and relaxation is crucial to the body for ongoing repair and regeneration of tissues and for the building of an energy reserve needed to cope with future stressors. Being physically fit actually makes you less vulnerable to stress.
It is also important to consume enough purified or filtered water. The best way to determine how much water you should consume every day is to divide your body weight by two. This number will give you the approximate number of ounces of water you should drink per day. For example, a 100-pound woman should drink 50 ounces of water per day, or 6 eight-ounce glasses.

How Do the Adrenal Glands Handle Stress?
The adrenal glands function in the body to help handle stress. They act as our body?s ?shock-absorbers.? When the body encounters stress or has low blood sugar, the adrenal glands release the hormone adrenaline into the blood. This hormone immediately increases blood pressure, stimulates the heart, and relaxes the muscles in the lungs. Adrenaline is ideally supposed to be released in situations where fight or flight decisions are being made. In modern society, however, high stress levels cause adrenaline to constantly circulate in the body. This can contribute to nervousness, anxiousness, and insomnia. Exercise, dance, walking, and high-energy work help diminish the levels of adrenaline in the blood. Increased levels of these hormones and their metabolites, and other stress-related chemicals left circulating in the blood awaiting removal, can leave a person feeling anxious, irritable, tense, and nervous. 4.
How Do the Adrenal Glands Become Fatigued?
The multiple stresses of modern day life combined with the standard American diet, along with the consumption or use of sugar, caffeine, alcohol, tobacco, and prescription or recreational drugs can over stimulate and place stress on the adrenal glands. When the intensity and frequency of stress overcomes the level at which a person can cope with such stressors, something is bound to break down. At this point, people become more vulnerable and susceptible to colds, flu, and infections. People exhibit adrenal gland stress or exhaustion in a variety of ways, some of which can even seem conflicting. Some people exhibit anxiety, nervousness, hyperactivity, or insomnia, while others experience only fatigue or low energy. Some unfortunate individuals experience both. Other signs include overreacting to noises or sudden stimuli, or a craving for salt. 5. One of the most obvious signs of adrenal fatigue is when a person wakes up tired even after a good night?s sleep. Because adrenal fatigue and exhaustion have a negative effect on the immune system, these are often the individuals who catch every cold and flu that goes around or are sick during every flu season.
What are Adaptogenic Herbs?
Adaptogens help the body remain vital and healthy by affecting the brain, muscles, liver, kidneys, and nerves, energizing them and allowing them to function properly even in stressful environments or conditions. Adaptogens work by bringing the body into balance regardless of whether a person is nervous and anxious or fatigued and has low levels of energy. Adaptogens have the special ability to bring either or both conditions to a balanced middle ground. 6. They act as a relaxant without causing drowsiness. 7. They impart grounded energy to someone who is fatigued, not nervous caffeine-type energy, and help ground people who are nervous and high-strung. 8.
QA: How do they do this? What exactly is happening in the body chemically?
Adaptogens appear to work by stimulating both physical and mental activity; by protecting and improving the function of the endocrine glands and the liver; by sparing the use of glycogen (the glucose stored in the liver and muscles) and increasing the use of fatty acids for energy.
Schizandra helps to bring balance and equilibrium to the body even in the presence of stress or pathology. It also improves overall response and strengthens the central and peripheral nervous systems. 11.
Vitamins that I recommend for conditions of stress and fatigue include B vitamins, folic acid, and biotin. The family of B Vitamins (B1, or Thiamine; B2, or Riboflavin; B3, or Niacin; B5 or Pantothenic Acid; B6, or Pyridoxine; and B12, or Cyanocobalamin) are crucial for helping the body cope with stress and essential for numerous functions including food metabolism and energy production, the formation of red blood cells, protecting cells against free-radicals, blood sugar regulation, supporting the adrenal glands in production of hormones (B5 is known as the anti-stress vitamin) helping to regulate electrolyte mineral balance, and maintaining the health of the nervous system. Folic Acid is essential for red and white blood cell formation. Biotin participates in metabolism of food and release of energy. It also assists in the making of amino acids, nucleic acids, fatty acids, and use of the other B vitamins. 18, 19
Antioxidants and Other Vitamins
I believe that everyone should take antioxidant nutrients. One of the greatest general stresses placed on the body is oxidative stress.13.
Free-radicals caused by oxidative stress are now considered contributing factors to many degenerative health conditions.
Oxidative, free-radical reactions cause cell membrane damage, DNA damage, and interfere with numerous cellular chemistries. Health conditions associated with free radical damage include liver damage, arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease, cataracts, diabetic conditions, gastrointestinal disorders, immune system dysfunction, inflammation, neurological degeneration, and red blood cell damage. 14.
Sources of free-radicals (oxidizing agents) include cigarette smoke, cooked or rancid fats and oils, heavy exercise, heavy metal poisoning (including aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury, nickel), human-made chemical poisons (herbicides, pesticides), natural toxins (Candida albicans), radiation (of any form), stress (of any form), and sunlight. 15.
Antioxidants such as vitamins A, C, and E, the minerals selenium and zinc, the nutrients alpha-lipoic acid, coenzyme Q10, and herbs such as gingko biloba, green tea, bilberry, pine bark and grape seed extracts all can assist the body in the defense against free-radical oxidative damage to the body?s cells and tissues.
I recommend that you make your health a top priority. Take the time and make the effort to gradually change your diet, lifestyle, relaxation, and exercise programs. Let these changes become an increasing part of your ?new, healthier life.? Develop these habits and know that the benefits are cumulative and will continually improve the quality of your life. Health is wealth.

would you suggest taking this and leviathan at the same time, or would you space out the dose.
upon waking = 2 caps Leviathan + 1 cap Reset
~6 hours later = 2 caps leviathan + 1 cap reset

07-16-2008, 05:49 PM
weird... it might have lowered your tolerance so much to caffeine that its kicking you ass ... i get a similar effect if i take too much caffeine. any more than 50mg at once and I am nauseas
07-16-2008, 05:53 PM
I usually have about 6 cups of coffee between 8am and 1pm...now, at cup #1 I'm DONE! I don't even desire more!

I'm on day 4 and was wondering, because I was considering doing some JP8 (about 180mg Caffeine) for a workout, but I really want to rest my adrenals. I took off stims for alot of the summer until August when I started doing JP8 and Recreate. (mini background).

If you take this dose at one time, you require your adrenals to pour out epinephrine and other CNS stimulating hormones to produce energy.
If you take this dose throughout the day, you are choosing caffeine over natural energy production.
In either situation, you are continuing to blunt your receptors and downregulate adenosine/atp within your body.
So, do you have to avoid stims completely? No.
But I wouldnt suggest more than 100mg/day if you plan on really allowing your adrenal glands the opportunity for recovery.
Ive heard great things about JP8, but personally I prefer non-stim pre-workouts for that extra edge.
