Scientific research on key botanicals and nutrients in Ortho Adapt
Pantethine: Active co-enzyme form of B5, converted to coenzyme A (CoA). CoA plays an essential role in the biosynthesis of adrenal hormones involved in the body's release of energy reserves in response to stress. If you are deficient in B5 you more rapidly develop symptoms of burnout.
Vitamin C:helps the adrenal glands respond to stress. Concentrations on Vitamin C in healthy adrenal glands are higher than any part of the body, except the brain. Human and animal studies have shown high-dose vitamin C supplementation can help modulate the impact of stressful conditions and buffering cortisol secretion.
Rhodiola rosea: A well-studied adaptogen, with a long history of use traditionally in Siberia. Recent studies have documented the ability of standardized Rhodiola to enhance the body's capacity to remain productive physically and mentally when under stress.
Ashwagandha:works first and foremost to reduce the stress response in an overstressed body
Licorice: helps keep the adrenals working at optimal levels.
Siberian Ginseng:enhances the immune system and improves physical performance.
Adrenal Glandulars:provide peptides and nutrient cofactors which are required by the adrenal gland to function.
