5 HTP Plus: The precursor to serotonin, our 5-hydroxytryptophan is extracted naturally from the seed of Griffonia simplicifolia. 5-HTP has been shown to be effective in people with mood disorders, restless sleep, and anxiety.
C Flav: Contains a blend of vitamin C, a well known antioxidant, along with herbs that also have strong antioxidant properties such as Quercetin, rutin, and hibiscus flowers. Use for immune system enhancement and for illness or infection.
Adrenal Tone: During times of acute stress, the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis is over-stimulated and needs help re-balancing. The over-production of cortisol and other stress hormones is typical for individuals with HPA axis overload. AdreneVive is formulated to help respond to HPA axis overload by reducing cortisol levels and limiting the negative impact of acute adrenal stress. Combining three popular adaptogenic herbs (Siberian Ginseng, Rhodiola and Ashwagandha), this formula also includes an extract of Scutterlaria biacalensis to help support the immune system during times of stress. Phosphotidylserine is known for its ability to reduce cortisol production during HPA axis overload and is a precursor to important neuron metabolites. L-theanine, an amino acid found naturally in tea, is able to act as a calming agent, reducing the perception of stress, reducing cortisol levels and helping to maintain healthy immune status.
GABA Supreme: Quick Response for relief of muscle pain following exercise or other physical activities. Ingredients GABA and Glycine both act as calmatives for nerve impulses, controlling muscle contractions. Both are inhibitory neurotransmitters. Cramp Bark Powder has been used historically for those accustomed to exercise or physical activity, Cramp Bark is one of the most effective natural aids for alleviating exercise-related muscle pain. Dong Quai Root Extract has been used for centuries in Chinese traditional health practice, Dong Quai functions to increase relaxation of smooth muscles. A perennial aromatic herb native to China and Japan, Dong Quai root is one of the most effective natural muscle relaxants, used medicinally for relief of smooth muscle tension.
Glycemic Support: Glycemic Support plays a key role in adrenal health by supportingthe body’s glycemic response. When you eat a meal your blood sugar and insulin levels spike, the amount of the spike will depend on what foods were eaten (high sugar or carbohydrate meals will result in a larger spike). A few hours or so after the meal, your blood sugar and insulin levels begin to fall, this often times causes people to feel tired and drained in the afternoons. Overtime this rise and fall can put unwanted stress on the adrenal glands and can contribute to adrenal fatigue. The ingredients in Glycemic Support, including beta-glucans, brown rice concentrate, flaxseed flour, lipoic acid and chromium, help decrease the spike in blood sugar and insulin levels after a meal and thereby decreases the large fall of these levels in the afternoon, leading to less fatigue and adrenal stress. To support this glycemic balance with Glycemic Support, it is recommendedthat it be taken either directly before a meal or during a meal for best results.
