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.
