Adrenal Matrix provides a complete blend of nutrients and herbs for adrenal support and improved resiliency to stress. A healthy stress response is imperative as we now know that chronic stress can have detrimental effects on mental health, heart health, immune function and generally all aspects of our overall wellbeing.
In circumstances of ongoing stress, it is imperative to consider and address the adrenal glands. These glands must be addressed because they are responsible for producing and secreting cortisol, our bodies anti-stress hormone. Too much or too little of this hormone can lead to imbalances in other body systems and a variety of undesirable health effects such as fatigue, lethargy, anxiety or depression, poor immunity and weight gain or loss. Fortunately, natural support can help to balance cortisol and return the body back to equilibrium.
L-Tyrosine is an amino acid that not only acts as the building block for cortisol, but also other important hormones such dopamine, norepinephrine, epinephrine and thyroid hormone. Studies have shown that it is capable of improving cognition during times of stress, such as sleep deprivation, cold exposure, combat training and unpleasant background noise.
Various herbs are also included in Adrenal Matrix for their ability to balance cortisol, mood, cognition, resistance to stress and immunity. These herbs are considered ‘adaptogenic’, meaning that they are capable of helping the body adapt to stress. For example, withania somnifera has demonstrated the ability to lower blood cortisol levels and increase quality of life scores in adults with chronic stress. Research has found that eleutherococcus senticosus can enhance the quality of work under stressful circumstances and increase the ability to accommodate to adverse physical conditions. Rhodiola rosea, astragalus membranaceous and schisandrachinensis round out the adaptogenic herbs in Adrenal Matrix to collectively support the body’s stress response.
Finally, Vitamin B5 and B6 are added to the formula to aid neurotransmitter production, improve adrenal function and modulate cortisol. Specifically, Vitamin B5 down-regulates the excess production of cortisol while vitamin B6 is a necessary co-factor for the production of important mood-balancing chemicals such as GABA and serotonin.
Adrenal Matrix offers all of these nutrients in well-absorbed forms and herbs with standardized active ingredients for the safe and effective management of stress and its ill-effects. Available in vegetarian capsules and as a vegan-friendly formula.
