Nutri Advanced Nutri Adrenal Extra 120 Tablets

(9 reviews) Write a Review

Nutri Adrenal Extra contains hormone-free glandular extracts of both the adrenal gland and the pituitary gland. These are combined with a foundation of supportive nutrients, such as vitamin C, bioflavonoids, specific B vitamins and selected minerals. Nutri Adrenal Extra is a more potent alternative to Nutri Adrenal, and may be ideal for those needing higher-level support, with a focus on energy.

The adrenal glands are largely responsible for the body’s hormonal response to the stresses of life. They produce a number of crucially important hormones, and because of this, our optimal health depends on optimal adrenal function.

The adrenal and pituitary glandular concentrates contain amino acids, enzymes, vitamins and minerals that are naturally present in these glands. In studies glandulars have been shown to be stable in the gut, survive the conditions of the gut, and an amount of the extract will pass intact into the bloodstream. In this way, they may support the healthy function of the adrenal and pituitary glands.

Glandular therapy uses animal tissue concentrates to support the function of the corresponding human gland. Historically, glandulars have a rich medical tradition dating as far back as Aristotle. Bovine glands are used in Nutri Adrenal Extra as they are very similar to human glands. Up until relatively recently organ meats were an important part of human nutrition. Today however we rarely consume them.

The glandular extracts in Nutri Adrenal Extra are sourced from grass-fed New Zealand cattle, raised without the use of antibiotics or hormonal growth stimulants. This source meets the United Nation’s Food and Agricultural Organisation standards of organic. New Zealand is a certified BSE-free country and has never had any reported cases of BSE.

The adrenal and pituitary glands are freeze dried which ensures that all essential active nutrients, including enzymes, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, are retained. There is no heat or solvents used in the process. Each tablet provides 200mg of adrenal glandular concentrate and 15mg of pituitary glandular concentrate.

Vitamin C and pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) are found in high concentrations in healthy adrenal glands. Vitamin C and pantothenic acid both contribute to energy-yielding metabolism, as do vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B6. Vitamins C, B2, B3, B5 and B6 all help to reduce tiredness and fatigue.

Pantothenic acid (B5) contributes to the normal synthesis and metabolism of steroid hormones. The corticosteroid hormones are produced in the adrenal glands. Vitamin B6 contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity.

In foods, vitamin C and bioflavonoids are naturally found together. Bioflavonoids enhance the antioxidant activity of vitamin C.

Chromium plays an important role in the maintenance of normal blood glucose levels, and balanced blood sugar levels are very important for our health and wellbeing.

Vitamin C and pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) are found in high concentrations in healthy adrenal glands. Vitamin C and pantothenic acid both contribute to energy-yielding metabolism, as do vitamins B1, B2, B6 and B12.

    For over 10years I just got gradually less well in every way. Visits to the doctor ended in treating the symptoms not the cause till I got pneumonia in Spain last summer and the doctor told me it was systemic and probably my thyroid. It was and I started taking thyroxin but after months of treatment I still felt rough so did research and Dr Barry Durrant-Peatfield's book "Your Thyroid And How To Keep It Healthy" mentioned my symptoms and recommended adrenal support. I started on the ordinary product and felt much much better. When they ran out I decided to try this one and after 2 weeks I am altogether better and my brain is more organised if that doesn't sound too weird. I don't like the taste - they made me gag - so I take them with bananas.

    adrenal fatigue is very real.

    Posted by Becky norfolk on 9th Feb 2015

    I suffered for a year and my doctor had no clue what was wrong , I went to a Nutritionist who recommended these tablets. It took a while but I feel great now ,my energy has finally returned. A couple months ago I lazily ran out of them, but I was quickly reminded how much better I had been feeling. I won't stop again ! Amazing !

    Really helped me on the way to recovery

    Posted by Unknown on 25th Sep 2012

    My adrenal fatigue had got to a dibilitating stage but after taking Nutir Adrenal Extra for a few weeks I can really feel the difference. Most of my symptoms have disappeared altogether.

    Brilliant product

    Posted by Unknown on 6th Jun 2012

    I was advised to get this product from my consultant, I wasn't sure what benefit if any it would do me, but I ordered some and all I can say is it's been brilliant.

    I have been using this product for 5 months and the benefits are unreal.

    Fantastic product!

    Posted by Unknown on 30th May 2012

    I felt the benefit of this product within 1 hour of taking it. Amazing benefits have helped me cope with all sorts of stresses that previously would have turned me into a gibbering wreck.
    I can't recommend it enough.
