This formula combines whole adrenal and adrenal cortex with a combination of herbs and nutrients that nutritionally support the adrenal glands. Naturally occurring adrenal hormones in these extracts (epinephrine, norepinephrine, corticosteroids) can help promote healthy adrenal function. Both Eleutherococcus senticosus and Panax ginseng have adaptogenic
properties to help balance physiological functions in the body, including adrenal gland function. Licorice extract helps to maintain healthy cortisol metabolism while calcium pantothenate promotes healthy adrenal gland activity.*
