There is no doubt that we live in a high stress society.  Not only do we live and work in unnatural environments, our foods are vastly different than they were 150 years ago.  Until relatively recently, no human ever consumed synthesized isolated USP vitamins.  Should stress vitamin formulas be primarily synthetic substances which can add stress to the body?  We think not!

Vegetarian Adrenal is a 100% vegan Food supplement intended to nutritionally support the adrenal glands and help support biochemical imbalances associated with cortisol production.  The adrenal glands play a role in energy, stress, mood, and even pain control.  The adrenal glands have probably the greatest store of vitamin C in the body.  Vegetarian Adrenal is basically Food intended for the adrenal glands (it is not advised if breastfeeding). If additional endocrine support is indicated, consider adding Vegetarian Thyro or Vegetarian Tyrosine.

Acerola Cherry is one of the most vitamin C dense Foods (the adrenal glands tend to store vitamin C in the body [1]) Not only does it have free radical scavenging abilities, it also has been shown to increase the antioxidant abilities of some other foods [2].

Ashwagandha Withania somnifera is considered to be an herb to help deal with stress.  An animal study, “concluded that ashwagandha possesses adaptogenic, cardiotropic, cardioprotective and anticoagulant properties” [3].

Carob Pod Ceratonia siliqua is a natural Food source high in the amino acid serine (see L-Serine below) [4].  In addition, research has concluded, “The presence of substances with central benzodiazepine activity in carob extracts seems of great importance in view of the possibility to use carob extract as potential natural products with anxiolytic-sedative effects” [5].

Kelp is Food that supplies trace minerals [6], and adrenal glands contain trace minerals.

L- Serine is an non-essential amino acid, that along with some others help produce the “enzyme that catalyzes the first step in the conversion of circulating dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), pregnenolone or 17alpha-hydroxypregenolone to produce the appropriate, active steroid hormone(s): estradiol, testosterone, progesterone, aldosterone or cortisol respectively” [7].  L-serine is known to help restore compromised adrenal function, as well as helping to reduce elevated cortisol levels.

Potassium is found in plants [8]. Potassium is the leading intracellular electrolyte and is necessary for electrolyte balance, stimulating aldersterone for the adrenal glands [8].  The late Dr. Bernard Jensen wrote the following about potassium deficiencies, “The mind becomes chaotic, unpredictable, highly imaginative and unorthodox.  States of mind alternate between joy and melancholy and even excitability…Potassium Must be Supplied in Food Form” [9] (bolding his).

Rice bran is a Food source of B vitamins [7], which are often used for stress, anxiety, and adrenal support.

Tomato powder contains lycopene in tomato powder.  The power, which is how it is in Vegetarian Adrenal, appears to be more bioavailable than that in fresh tomatoes, and tomato powder has (by weight) 26-144 times more lycopene than fresh tomatoes [7]. “Among the common dietary carotenoids lycopene has the highest singlet oxygen quenching capacity in vitro. Other outstanding features are its high concentration in… {the} adrenal gland” [10]. Studies suggest it has a variety of protective effects [7].

Vitamin B-5 Pantothenate is “the number one adrenal strengthener” [11]. Severe deficiency of vitamin B-5 causes numbness in toes and painful burning in feet, and can cause anemia, skin problems, and adrenal problems [12].  Because of cortisol’s anti-allergy properties this may be why many advise pantothenate for allergies.  “Synthetic D-pantothenate…is available as a calcium or sodium salt” [12], and is sold in forms such as sodium D-pantothenate or calcium D-pantothenate or sometime just listed as pantothenic acid [13].  Other synthetic “multivitamin preparations commonly contain its…alcohol derivative, panthenol” [12].  “Dexopanthenol is a synthetic form which is not found naturally” [13].  USP pantothenic acid is made by condensing isobutyraldehyde with formaldehyde [14].  “Pantothenic acid consists of pantoic acid in amide linkage to beta-alanine”, but vitamin B-5 is not found that way in nature, pantothenate forms are [15].  The vegetarian foods which are highest in pantothenate are nutritional yeast, brown rice, peanuts, and broccoli [12,13,15].  Nutritional yeast and brown rice supply the vitamin B-5 in Vegetarian Adrenal, and are two of the best natural sources of food pantothenate [12,13].

Vitamin B-6  : “An understanding of the various forms [of vitamin B-6] and quantities of these forms in foods is important in the evaluation of the bioavailability and metabolism of vitamin B-6” [16]. One of the forms that vitamin B-6 exists in is the form “5’0-(beta-D-glycopyransosyl) pyridoxine.  To date only plant foods have been found to contain this interesting form of vitamin B-6” [16].  Yeast and rice bran contain more natural food vitamin B-6 than other foods [17].   Reports suggest that food vitamin B-6 is superior to forms [18].  At least one synthetic vitamin B-6 analogue has been found to inhibit natural vitamin B-6 action [19].  Pyridoxine HCL (hydrochloride) which is found in most non-food supplements is made with petroleum ester combined with HCL and processed with formaldehyde [20].  “Disorders treated with (B-6)…include Down’s syndrome, autism, hyperoxaluria, gestational diabetes, carpal tunnel syndrome, depression, and diabetic neuropathy” [12].  Many problems including anemias, premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), PMS, cardiovascular complaints, confusion, depression, irritability, and certain immune problems have responded to vitamin B-6 [21].  A study of healthy elderly individuals found about 1/3 had marginal vitamin B-6 deficiency [21].

Vitamin C in the human body, is found in the greatest abundance in the adrenal glands, which demonstrates that many aspects of adrenal physiology require vitamin C.  Foods generally contain two biologically active forms of vitamin C [12,22,23], yet most synthetic vitamin C only contains isolated ascorbic acid [24,25].  One M.D. writes, “If anything helps you battle the effects of stress, it is vitamin C” [26]; vitamin C “can readily donate electrons to quench a variety of reactive free radical and oxidative species and is easily returned to its reduced state…The vitamin efficiently scavenges hydroxyl, peroxyl, and superoxide radicals, as well as reactive peroxide, singlet oxygen, and hypochlorite species” and protects against lipid and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) peroxidation” [12].

Many people simply take Vegetarian Adrenal as a Food supplement to help them feel better.
