Stress and nutritional supplements

May 15th, 2014

The adrenal glands are chiefly responsible for releasing hormones in response to stress, which plays a central role in the fight or flight response. The difference is we cannot live effectively under continual bombardment of stress. Under emergency situations the adrenals help us to withstand stress, mineral balance and inflammation. However, prolonged working under stressful situations can have a negative effect. Depleted Adrenals can have a life-threatening result. Once depleted and when the adrenals do not respond to emotional demands, the body has a more difficult time coping with the stress, eventually leading to chronic fatigue. Many people suffer from adrenal exhaustion. We need to be kind to ourselves and get back into our divine rhythm. We cannot live effectively without our adrenals.

Nutritionally, there are recommendations for the adrenals to help bring the body back into homeostasis and support the adrenals. There are formulations from NuSkin that support the adrenals, such as Cortitrol which promotes healthy cortisol hormone balance and supports your ability to respond to stressful situations more calmly. Also, LifePak Nano is an excellent product to get vitamins and minerals necessary for a healthy immune system. It has been recommended to use 50 to 100 mg freeze-dried adrenal twice a day, as well as other stress-supporting nutrients, such as the B vitamins, vitamins C and A as well as zinc. The adrenals also need adequate levels of vitamins E and essential fatty acids. Pantothenic acid aids the adrenals and helps handle the stress of increased mental tensity. Also, folic acid and PABA have been well-documented as helpful. Some herbs are recommended to support the adrenals, such as licorice root.

I knew a man who depleted his adrenals and ended up having his adrenals removed in an experimental study. They gave him hormone injections to replace his adrenals. Soon thereafter, he died. The adrenal glands are critical for maintaining good health.
