Adrenal Boost is a glandular-based adrenal product offering comprehensive support to rejuvenate and balance both adrenal and hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis function. The adrenal glands are mainly responsible for secreting cortisol and catecholamines (epinephrine and norepinephrine) to mediate stress responses. In addition to depleting a host of micronutrients, stress can alter cortisol and catecholamines in a harmful way. Considering the stress epidemic stemming from today's modern lifestyle, many Canadians feel the effects of HPA axis disregulation and can benefit from a protocol involving lifestyle change and adrenal support.

Maintaining ideal levels of cortisol, referred to as the “stress hormone,” is critical to good health. The adrenals secrete this hormone during the body’s “fight or flight” response to stress. Small increases of cortisol are often welcomed, such as those quick bursts of energy necessary for survival, or in helping to maintain homeostasis in the body. However, higher than normal levels of cortisol for prolonged amounts of time, as seen with chronic stress, have been shown to have negative effects on the body. For example, cortisol increases serum blood glucose and insulin levels which may over time lead to metabolic syndrome. Chronically elevated cortisol levels have detrimental repercussions on the adrenal glands, causing them to “burn out” so that they no longer can produce sufficient quantities of cortisol to handle stress.
The HPA axis is an interdependent, tightly-linked endocrine unit which makes up a major limb of the body’s stress system. The hypothalamus and pituitary form the central part of the HPA axis, whose main function is to control reactions to stress and maintain stress-related homeostasis. It is the combination of nervous and endocrine functions in the form of neuroendocrine units which regulates the adrenal gland's hormonal activities.
The inclusion of tissue-specific glandulars in Adrenal Boost from both the adrenal cortex as well as the whole adrenal gland adheres to the long-held theory that like heals like. In addition to being rich in an array of vitamins and minerals, these adrenal glandulars contain protein-like substances which may have specific messenger activity that target the body’s adrenal tissues to strengthen and repair these glands.
With the ever-increasing concerns over the safety of glandular materials, we have re-examined this issue and have gone to extreme lengths to obtain the purest and cleanest sources of glandulars on the market today. Our glandular materials are obtained only from certified BSE-free countries (Argentina) and are freeze-dried to preserve function and freshness.
The amino acid N-Acetyl-tyrosine, the most bioavailable form of tyrosine, is included as a critical building block of catecholamines which are often depleted under chronic stress conditions. Supplementing with tyrosine may benefit those exposed to chronic stress. In a study which examined the effect of tyrosine on behaviour in chronically stressed mice, tyrosine was shown to increase both the concentration and turnover rate of norepinephrine metabolites. Vitamin C also plays a vital role in controlling cortisol levels. One study looked at the effect of vitamin C on cortisol in individuals subjected to stress via exercise. Saliva samples were collected from participants before and after cycling for two hours in a hot, humid environment. Results revealed a significant linear trend in post-exercise cortisol reduction in the vitamin C group, suggesting that vitamin C supplementation can decrease cortisol following exercise-heat stress.
B vitamins play critical roles as enzyme cofactors in the balanced production of stress hormones and are thus included in the active form- thiamine HCL (B1), pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxine-B6 (as P-5-P) and riboflavin-B2 (as R-5-P). The B-vitamin profile is a comprehensive spectrum of Bs, most provided in phosphorylated form for superior bioavailability.
Pantothenic acid in particular plays an important role in helping the adrenal glands to generate more cortisol when needed. In a study conducted on male rats, the adrenal cells in those given pantothenic acid exhibited higher basal levels of corticosterone than the control rats, demonstrating that pantothenic acid supplementation stimulates the ability of adrenal cells to secrete corticosterone.
All of these ingredients are combined to synergistically promote proper homeostasis of serum cortisol, nurture healthy hypothalamic-pituitary function, aid in the production and replenishment of depleted catecholamines, support adrenal cortical health, and replete common nutritional deficiencies that can result from chronic stress. Taking Adrenal Boost during exposure to chronic stress may reduce undesirable side effects of stress such as anxiety and abdominal weight gain.
