The cortex section of the adrenal gland provides important functions to the body. It is the control centerfor many hormones. The Adrenal Cortex produces three types of corticosteroids. Mineralocorticoids (like aldosterone) influence the mineral electrolytes of the blood, particularly sodium and potassium.
Glucocorticoids (like cortisol) have an influence on glucose regulation and fat metabolism. The Adrenal Cortex also secretes androgens (sex hormones) that exhibit similar effects to testosterone. In general, the Adrenal Cortex plays a major role in helping the body respond to physical and emotional stress. Chronic stress can overwhelm the adrenals and may result in low energy levels and insomnia. Unaddressed, this may lead to weight gain, exhaustion and may increase the risk of developing chronic diseases.
Supplementing with pure Adrenal Cortex tissue has been considered by healthcare professionals worldwide as crucial for healthy adrenal function and to help in normalizing the bodys immune and stress responses.
As an adult dietary supplement, take 1 capsule per day or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
