Adrenal Blend-200 is a full spectrum, concentrated adrenal proteins to aid in the health and support of adrenal gland function that plays a crucial role in energy production, fluid and electrolyte balance, blood sugar support, and stress recovery.
Administer entire tube 1 – 3 hours prior to exercise.
Exercise induced stress may exhaust adrenal cortex function. Adrenal Blend 2000 supplies concentrated adrenal proteins to support healthy adrenal gland function, energy levels and immune health.
Adrenal Blend 2000 is formulated for the support of horses under temporary stress such as travel or competition. It may also be used daily for a few days following a stressful event to aid in recovery.
Adrenal Blend 2000 is a glandular concentrate, which means it contains glandular tissue with all the prohormones, enzymes and cofactors needed for function of the adrenal cortex.
Stress is the body’s response to demanding conditions. The adrenal gland secretes hormones in response to stress, and these hormones orchestrate the body's response. When the horse's body is faced with a sudden challenge, like a demand for exercise, the stress response kicks in. This includes activation of the adrenal cortex, the outermost portion of the adrenal gland. Hormonal output includes mineral corticoids, cortisol and sex prohormones.
Mineralocorticoids conserve Sodium by suppressing excretion of Sodium by the kidneys. Preserving Sodium serves to maintain blood volume, making sure the cardiovascular system can function well.
Cortisol is also released in the stress response. The job of cortisol is to keep energy sources available for the tissues by suppressing storage of glucose as fat or glycogen and mobilizing fat from fat stores.
Finally, the adrenal cortex releases DHEA, a hormone that is a precursor for testosterone.
