The adrenal glands help us deal with stress. When we are doing too much, not eating well or not getting adequate rest, the adrenals become exhausted. We need our adrenals to function optimally because they are our back-up hormone system when our ovaries take a much-needed rest. Women who have exhausted adrenals have terrible menopausal symptoms. The adrenals make cortisol, our stress hormone, as well as progesterone, DHEA, testosterone and estrogen. ADRENAsmartTM works fast to aid adrenal function.
Rhodiola Rosea Extract increases resistance of the body to chemical, biological and physical stressors. In Russia it has been used for centuries and has very powerful anti-aging and anti-stress activity. Rhodiola enhances mental and physical performance and is more powerful than other adaptogens (see below). Most adaptogens are warming in nature but Rhodiola is cooling and as a result is useful for menopausal women. It has been proven to enhance the immune system and to have anti-depressive and anti-tumor activity. Studies also show that Rhodiola regulates the heart by increasing oxygen utilization.
