Adrenal Function Formula
Adrenal function formula is used for adrenal fatigue and as a muscle relaxant, aphrodisiac, and analgesic, for adrenal support, and as an immune stimulant. Our adrenal function formula contains novel alkaloids documented with immunomodulating effects.
It is formulated with herbs that are highly regarded in Brazil as an energy tonic and traditionally used to combat adrenal fatigue without caffeine, xanthenes, or other overt stimulants to over-tax the adrenals. Remember, the adrenals are tiny glands that sit on top of your kidneys, so if you are feeling signs of fatigue, then it’s only right to target the kidneys along with the adrenal glands.
These tiny glands are just as essential to our health as the much larger organs all around them. They secrete natural “steroids,” which deal with glucose, that help the body respond to injuries, contribute to athletic muscle growth, keep the volume of blood at the right level, and, in males, contribute to the development of sexual characteristics.
Adrenal Gland Hyperplasia
If the levels of the hormones produced by the adrenal glands fall below or increase above standard, various disorders will result, such as; adrenal hyperplasia, Addison’s disease, neuroblastoma, Cushing’s syndrome, pheochromocytoma. Adrenal hyperplasia is an enlargement of the adrenal gland and affects the outer region, the cortex.
Overproduction of ACTH from the pituitary can cause the mentioned condition, often occurring with pituitary tumors. Elevated levels of ACTH lead to excessive stimulation of the adrenals resulting in enlargement (hyperplasia) and excess production of cortisol and androgens.
The suprarenal glands (aka adrenal glands) are primary endocrine glands responsible for the production of corticosteroids and catecholamines in response to stress.
Secondary Adrenal Insufficiency
They also have secondary functions, including the production of androgens that contribute to the control of normal male development, glucocorticoids that regulate blood sugar levels, and of aldosterone that adds to the regulation of blood plasma osmolarity.
Each suprarenal gland is composed of an outer cortex and an inner medulla that are mostly anatomically and functionally distinct. Cortical production of corticosteroids (cortisol), androgens, and aldosterone are primarily controlled by; neuroendocrine hormones from the pituitary gland, while medullary production of epinephrine and norepinephrine controlled by direct innervation with preganglionic sympathetic fibers from the thoracic spinal cord between T5 and T11.
Unlike other glands, these two glands release their hormones directly into the bloodstream via the superior, middle and inferior suprarenal arteries, rather than via glandular ducts.
