Adrenal C Formula x 150 Caplets
- Vegetarian product
Adrenal C Formula supplies an optimal amount of sustained release vitamin C for adrenal resilience to stress. The natural citrus bioflavonoids ratio enhances vitamin C potency, & the form is buffered (pH balanced with trace minerals) to be gentle on stomach.
The mineral forms are bioavailable so that they can better support adrenal function, and antioxidant formation.
The more stressed you are, the more vitamin C your body uses up and needs. Unlike most animals, humans cannot make their own vitamin C and have limited capacity to store it. This means vitamin C must be consumed regularly. Your body’s stress response system depends on vitamin C to function properly, which is why adrenal and pituitary glands (key parts of the stress response system) contain some of the highest levels of vitamin C in the human body.
In fact, the amount of vitamin C in the blood was once considered the best measure of adrenal function, before actual adrenal hormones could be measured. Stress accelerates oxidation, creating more potentially damaging free radicals in your body, which is why ensuring sufficient vitamin C intake is so important.
Oxidation is necessary to health and the resulting free radicals are normally handled by your body. However, too much oxidation can create an overload, which left unchecked can contribute to health issues related to free radical tissue and DNA damage. Interestingly, the adrenal glands are especially vulnerable. This means that whether you are experiencing ‘good’ stress in an aerobics class or ‘bad’ stress from attempting to deal with a hectic lifestyle, or you are struggling with adrenal fatigue symptoms (i.e. low cortisol), ensuring that you get enough vitamin C makes sense for your body’s wellbeing.
