Support for the adrenal glands * This formula combines the whole adrenal and adrenal cortex with a mixture of herbs that nutritionally supports the adrenal glands. Panax ginseng and Eleutherococcus senticosus, or eleuthero, are used primarily as adaptogens, supporting overall health by a wide range of physical, chemical, and biochemical factors. The ingredients in this formula support the production of certain adrenal hormones and maintain a healthy immune response. ADR Formula® offers broad-spectrum nutritional support to the functioning of the adrenal glands. †The adrenal glands control and regulate the body's self- defense mechanism against stress, a reaction to any stimulus which upsets normal functioning and disturbs mental or physical health. The adrenal glands generate the energy needed to perform strenuous tasks, deal with emotional crises, and fight infection. Healthy adrenal gland function is crucial to a number of physiological functions including glucose metabolism, stress adaptation, energy generation, stamina, and the immune response.
