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.
