A balanced vitamin and mineral supplement regimen is critical when
addressing adrenal regulation. The synthesis and secretion of cortisol
is largely dependant on adequate supplies of various vitamins. Vitamin
C is needed for steroid biosynthesis and is depleted from the adrenal
cortex upon high cortisol secretion. Niacin derivatives are also
necessary cofactors for steroid biosynthesis. Pantothenic acid is vital to
maintain steroid secretion from the adrenal cortex.
Siberian ginseng, Rhodiola rosea, Glycyrrhiza glabra, and Schizandra
chinensis are all considered to be adaptogenic herbs. Adaptogens are
substances that nonspecifically increase the resistance of stress and
exerts a balancing effect on various systems in the body (immune,
central nervous, etc).
Siberian ginseng has been approved by the Commission E as a tonic to
help with fatigue and concentration. Compounds of Siberian ginseng
known as eleutherosides, have been shown to be the primary
compounds responsible for its adaptogenic activity.
Rhodiola rosea has been used in Russia as an agent to support fatigue,
mental clarity, and memory. In Sweden Rhodiola rosea has been
recognized as an anti-fatigue agent, in Denmark Rhodiola rosea is
registered as a medical product in the category of botanical drugs.
Schizandra chinensis has been used for centuries in China and Russia
as an adaptogen. Schizandra has been used to enhance mental clarity,
alleviate stress, and promote emotional wellness.
Licorice root (Glycyrrhiza glabra) contains compounds known as
glycyrrhizin. These compounds have a structure very similar to
corticosteroids and have been shown to block the enzyme responsible
for converting cortisol to the inactive cortisone.
