Dr. Tennant's Adrenaline Support Formula
Dr. Tennant's Adrenaline Support Formula combines well-researched vital nutrients, herbs & botanicals to help support the body's natural adrenaline production. Proper adrenal rhythms are essential in maintaining full-body health and wellness.
The body requires the amino acid Tyrosine, vitamin C, and vitamin B6 to create adrenaline.
Vitamin C - appears to attenuate cortisol output in acutely stressful situations. The adrenals secrete vitamin C in response to stress along with cortisol. Natural vitamin C from whole foods includes natural ascorbic acid and all its synergists – Rutin, Bioflavonoids, Factor K, Factor J, Factor P, Tyrosinase, Ascorbinogen, and other components.
Flavonoids - a broad class of compounds found in numerous plants. Many flavonoid-rich plants have been shown to have beneficial effects on adaptation to stress and stress response, including camu camu, lemon peel, and rose hips.
Vitamin B6 (PYRIDOXAL-5-PHOSPHATE) - the metabolically active co-enzyme of vitamin B6. Vitamin B6’s nutritional status may have a significant and selective modulatory impact on the central production of both serotonin and GABA neurotransmitters, which can positively affect emotional response, pain perception, and anxiety.
Tyrosine - L-tyrosine is an amino acid precursor for the synthesis of the neurotransmitters norepinephrine and dopamine. By improving the rate of neurotransmitter synthesis, L-tyrosine stimulates the central nervous system. It appears to function as an adaptogen by relieving physical symptoms of stress, such as mood swings.
Chronically stressed individuals may benefit from supplementing with L-Tyrosine as they may not efficiently convert phenylalanine to L-tyrosine.
Herbal Adaptogens & Botanicals - Combined with basic nutrients, these help tailor Adrenaline Support Formula to each individual.
- Ashwagandha is a relaxing adrenal restorative widely used in Ayurvedic medicine that can help individuals with lower adrenal output and anxiety or depression.
RHODIOLA (RHODIOLA ROSEA)
- Preliminary studies appear to show that rhodiola may help with depression and anxiety.
- This herb may aid adrenal fatigue by supporting the adrenal glands. Many immune system supplements contain this herb mixed with vitamins and minerals.
- Schisandra berry may help the body better adapt to stressors that causes fatigue on the adrenal glands.
The adrenal glands are small walnut-sized glands that are located above the kidneys. These glands produce several key hormones that control almost every function in the body. The inner adrenal glands make adrenaline. Adrenaline controls body temperature, the bottom number of blood pressure readings, the speed of pulse, the ability to deal with stress, the ability to multitask, memory, sexual function, and many other things.
The human adrenal glands do not secrete steroid hormones at a constant level throughout the day. Instead, when functioning properly, hormones are released in a 24-hour cycle, called the circadian rhythm. An abnormal adrenal rhythm can influence many functions of the body, such as:
Energy Production & Sleep Quality
- Disrupted adrenal function can affect the ability of cells to produce energy. This is why people who have a hard time waking up in the morning and suffer from low energy throughout the day often have abnormal adrenal rhythms and poor blood sugar regulation.
The ability to enter REM sleep cycles and experience regenerative sleep are interrupted by high cortisol values at night and in the morning. A chronic lack of REM sleep can reduce a person’s mental vitality and lead to depression.
Muscle, Joint & Bone Health
- Abnormal adrenal rhythms are known to compromise tissue healing and bone growth. Reduced tissue repair and increased tissue breakdown can lead to chronic muscle and joint pain. If cortisol levels are elevated, our bones also do not rebuild well and we become more prone to osteoporosis.
The Immune System
- Various immune cells (white blood cells) cycle in and out of the spleen and bone marrow. The immune system trafficking follows the cortisol cycle. If the cycle is disrupted, then the immune system is adversely affected.
- It can also affect…
- Skin regeneration
- Grain intolerance
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)
- Glycemic Dysregulation
- Allergies/Autoimmune Disorders
- It can also affect…
The level of cortisol at the cellular level controls thyroid hormone production. Often, hypothyroid symptoms such as fatigue and low body temperature are due to adrenal dysfunction. There are millions of people who are diagnosed with thyroid conditions and many of these people also have dysfunctional adrenals.
A dysfunctional thyroid may be secondary to dysfunctional adrenals!
In most cases, the malfunctioning thyroid gland isn’t the actual cause of the problem. Often, it’s the weakened adrenal glands that lead to the development of thyroid conditions. When the adrenal glands are causing the thyroid to malfunction, commonly healthcare professionals aim their treatment directly at the thyroid gland and ignore the adrenals, which is the root of the problem.
But how can weakened adrenal glands lead to the development of a thyroid condition? The adrenal glands and thyroid work together as a team. When one loses reserves or is stressed, the other picks up the slack. Over time this can cause dysfunction.
Dr. Tennant's Adrenaline Support Formula is designed to support the lack of adrenaline, whereas Dr. Tennant's Adrenal Desiccated Glandular Formula is designed to support cortisol in the body.
Dr. Tennant's Adrenal Desiccated Glandular Formula contains cortisol, aldosterone, and testosterone, so it is usually helpful when the systolic pressure (without blood pressure medication) is below 120.
