The following information is centered on the Nutritional Support for these Over Achievers: the Adrenal Glands. The recommendations include the best choice herbs that really reduce stress and enhance stamina. Amino acids play a paramount role in glandular health. Other specific supplements and the nutrients found in them provide a wide collection of benefits other than individual support and boosting of adrenal glands. When purchasing glandular support such as adrenal, look for combination products that offer a wider range of components to provide a quicker response.
Nutritional Recommendations for Adrenal Glands
B5 (pantothenic acid) is earmarked for the adrenals. Full adrenal support and a B complex are also helpful. Glands in general want high quality protein and fats. Essential fatty acids (EFA’s) are a type of good fat that the body requires for proper functioning and restoring. EFA’s are always earmarked for the Endocrine system as a whole. Look for the follow-up post on Pantothenic Acid – B5 for additional support.
A broad range of vitamins and minerals should be considered when supporting the adrenal glands. Adequate nutrition through diet and supplements will lower cortisol output while aiding and relieving stress. Cravings will also subside.
Since ancient times herbal remedies have been sought after for their medicinal and healing properties. Adaptogenic herbs are a reference to the nourishing and balancing qualities of a plant. These and other plants are used to increase strength, energy and stamina. They also provide calming of the nerves and stress related conditions while assisting sleep.
* Adaptogenic herbs “specifically” will not stimulate or sedate beyond normal body levels.
Nourishing adaptogenic herbs have been used in countries such as Asia, India and Russia for centuries, to improve mental performance, memory, enhancing physical activity and its performance, while reducing stress.
Rhodiola rosea is found in high altitudes of Eastern Europe and Asia. It is used for a wide variety of tasks some of which include fortifying against the cold, speedier recovery, mental enhancement, stamina, and enhances the feel good neurotransmitters in the brain.
Ginseng – Siberian
Another Adaptogenic herb is known as Siberian ginseng. Ginseng is found in several varieties and has established itself as a body enhancing herb. Because ginseng has been used for over 2000 years by the Chinese, its attributes has been hailed throughout most of the world. Siberian ginseng is noted for strengthening the body against toxins, radiation, strong drugs such as chemotherapy and helps the body resist infections. Ginseng increases stamina, fights fatigue, helps allergic conditions and is wonderful for boosting the immune system. The list of benefits and usage throughout the body is extensive.
Also known as winter cherry, Ashwagandha is an Ayurvedic herb. There are references to it being an Indian ginseng which is not correct. Again similar to Chinese ginseng, Ashwagandha has been used for many purposes for over 3000 years. To name but a few applications for this remarkable herb would include the treatment of bronchitis, asthma, ulcers, fatigue, depression, exhaustion, inflammation, insomnia, dementia, lowering stress and improve sexual dysfunction. As well as many metabolic functions like lowering cholesterol and blood glucose levels.
Omega 3 Fatty Acids
Omega 3 fatty acids in adequate amounts: fish oil and seed oils like flax and chia.
Wild salmon oil or other reputable company for fish oil and flax seed oil has almost exactly the same levels of GLA’s although far less expensive. In my first book I have extensive information about these fats – otherwise refer to ‘Top 12 Reasons to Take Omega 3 Fatty Acids’ – showing why many systems and areas may breakdown from an imbalance of dietary fats without sufficient omega 3 fatty acids. It is a light bulb moment. Concentrate on just omega 3 fatty acids for supplementation. We cook with omega 6 and 9’s are produced by the body.
Freshly Made Juice
Raw vegetable juice: Include carrots, beet, and a leafy green such as dandelion, kale and parsley. Refer to my several posts for extensive information about juicing vegetables, greens and fruit, as well as raw food, smoothies and more.
Supplements that are highly beneficial: Antioxidants, EFA’s, vitamin C, E, and all B vitamins, magnesium alone or coupled with calcium, and zinc with 2 mg of copper
Phosphatidylserine: useful for both underactive and overactive adrenal dysfunction.
This amino acid derivative is also referred to as a fatty substance called a phospholipid which is found in high amounts in the brain. One of its functions is to protect the cells in the brain and carries messages between them. Fish oil is a high source and white beans are bit higher than other foods.
Algae: Chlorella or blue green algae
Amino acid complex
Hormone replacements: check with your physician for Pregnenolone, DHEA
Avoid stimulants such as caffeine, alcohol, tobacco, pop, sugar and excessive carbohydrates
