Discussion

Omnivits Adrenal Support is an adaptogenic adrenal formulation designed to support normal cortisol levels. Adrenal Support contains no glandular material and is appropriate for vegetarians. Adrenal Support provides nutritional support for the adrenals in a non-glandular formula, consisting of herbal adaptogens, and supportive vitamins and minerals. It aids in supporting bodily functions when the body is under stress, and in supporting normal cortisol values, which may be especially important in obesity, Syndrome X and hyperinsulinism. Stress, a poor diet and environmental toxins are also contributors of adrenal malfunction, as referred to by Hans Selye’s as “diseases of civilization.”(77)

Nutritional Support for Adrenal Function:- 

  • Amino Acids for Catecholamine Synthesis L-Tyrosine is a conditionally essential amino acid. This key raw material is a precursor for the synthesis of catecholamines, epinephrine, norepinephrine, dopamine, thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). Stress increases the release of catecholamines, which in turn may result in depletion of their levels.

  • Vitamin B6 (as pyridoxal-5-phosphate and pyridoxine HCl) serves as a coenzyme in well over 100 reactions, most of which are transaminase reactions. It plays an important role in the synthesis of the neurotransmitters g-aminobutyric acid (GABA), serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine.  As a physiological modulator of steroid hormone action, Vitamin B6 has been associated with modulation of the expression of a diverse array of hormonally responsive genes

  • Vitamin E (as d-alpha tocopheryl acetate) is found in all cells in the human body, and functions primarily as an antioxidant. The adrenal cells, along with the pituitary, platelet and testicular cells contain the highest cellular concentration of vitamin E.

  • Niacin. primary cellular function is as a coenzyme for NAD+ and NADP+ , both of which function in the maintenance of cellular oxidation-reduction reactions. In addition to its varied cellular functions, NAD is used as a substrate for the production of poly-ADP-ribose (PARP).

  • Minerals associated with Adrenal Support Minerals can also be a beneficial component for adrenal support, as an aide to sustaining the adaptogenic response of the adrenals.

  • Zinc. participates as an active component in over 300 different enzymes, and plays a vital role in many biological processes. As a cofactor for the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) it is an important component in cellular protection. It also functions in enzymatic reactions in both carbohydrate and protein metabolism.

  • Copper. is also involved in gene regulation and expression, specifically for the metallothioneins, or metal-binding proteins. Studies have suggested that copper plays a role in mitochondrial gene expression, noting a decrease in oxidative phosphorylation with deficiency.

  • Achyranthes (extract) (root). In the Chinese pharmacology the action of Achyranthes is said to invigorate the blood, and to expel blood stasis. It is used in Yang tonic formulations. Its functionality is said to revolve around its ability to guide other herbs to the kidneys, genitals, and legs.

  • Damiana (extract) (herb) (Turnera diffusa) is a small shrub with an aromatic leaf, found predominantly in Mexico, Southern and Central America. Like Achyranthes, Damiana is also designated as a yang tonic, and is suggested to aide with energy. It is considered a strengthener for the nervous system, and is viewed as a nervous restorative.

  • Gotu Kola (extract) (herb) (Centella asiatica) In Ayurvedic medicine Gotu Kola is an herb viewed as an important component in rejuvenation, as well as one of the chief herbs for revitalizing the nerves and brain cells. The following properties have been attributed to its actions; mildly antibacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, anti-ulcerogenic, anxiolytic, a cerebral tonic, a circulatory stimulant, a diuretic, nervine and vulnerary.

  • Tinospora cordifolia (extract) (stem & root) The use of Tinospora cordifolia (TC) for debility, fever and dyspepsia in Ayurvedia is commonly recognized. The root of TC is documented as having anti-stress properties, as well as immune supporting properties.

Vitamins associated with Adrenal Support:- 

  • Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid). The concentration of vitamin C in the adrenal glands is among the highest in the body, being roughly 100 times that of blood plasma levels.

  • Pantothenic Acid (as calcium pantothenate) is a cofactor in the synthesis of coenzyme A (CoA). CoA plays an important part in cellular respiration, as well as in the biosynthesis of many important compounds including fatty acids, cholesterol and acetylcholine.

  • Thiamin (as thiamin mononitrate) a water-soluble B-complex vitamin, is involved in many bodily functions, including its requirement in the metabolism of carbohydrates, as part of the coenzyme thiamin pyrophosphate (TPP).

  • Riboflavin. Like thiamine, riboflavin is also a water-soluble vitamin. It participates in normal cell function, growth and energy production. Riboflavin serves as a crucial component in converting food into energy via the manufacturing of flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD).

  • Manganese (Mn) is a required mineral for optimal adrenal glandular activity. It serves as a component for energy metabolism, as a cofactor for enzymes of the citric acid cycle, as well as a functional cofactor as a as part of the enzymatic structure of several additional enzymes.

  • Lithium and Rubidium. Trace amounts of these two minerals are included as both are regarded as relaxant minerals.

  • Botanical Extracts for Adrenal Support A number of botanicals have properties identified as an aide in normalizing either excessive or deficient pathologies, with corresponding negligible disturbance in physiological function.

  • Sichuan Teasel (extract) (root) (Dipsacus asperoides) According to the Chinese tradition, Dipsacus asperoides (DA) is said to tonify the liver and kidneys, and to promote the movement of blood.

  • Asiatic Dogwood. (extract) (fruit) (Cornus officinalis). Cornus officinalis (CO) is popular in traditional medicine and is known for its tonic, analgesic, and diuretic properties.

  • Basil (extract) (leaf) (Ocimum basilicum) is a popular culinary herb, as well as a medicinal herb in Thailand, India and Turkey.(65) It is said to affect the lungs and stomach meridians, and its actions are indicated as being stimulatory to the adrenal cortex.

  • Schisandra (extract) (fruit) (Schisandra chinensis) has been utilized in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) for over 2,000 years, as both a tonic and a sedative. As a tonic, one of its uses was to improve mental functions.
