Adrenosen is a formula that relieves burnout, and is based on an ancient Chinese remedy. The American lifestyle is often stressful with a diet that frequently contains greasy, salty, and sweet foods. If prolonged without adequate replenishment and rejuvenation, heat conditions may develop. Symptoms include lack of energy, mental sluggishness, nervousness, chronic fatigue, indigestion, acid regurgitation, belching, food cravings or poor appetite, hypoglycemia, headache, palpitations, and constipation/diarrhea.
To maintain energy, some have overused ephedra (ma huang) or guarana, which are too warming for an already over-heated system.
Adrenal extracts have been used since the 1930s for cases of low adrenal function with fatigue and inability to cope with stress. As Adrenosen contains the cortex, it may be considered experimentally for cases of allergy and inflammation. PAK facilitates the conversion of blood sugar into energy, calm the nerves, and increases circulatory delivery of oxygen to the tissues. In addition, PAK may prevent or reduce lactic acid formation. Pseudostellaria (tai zi shen) replenishes energy stores and helps generate fluids. Dioscorea (shan yao) helps regulate the heart beat, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and regulates the intestines; it also helps alleviate body aches and pains. Dolichos (bia bian dou) settles the stomach and reduces heat. Schizandra (wu wei zi) addresses insomnia, forgetfulness, poor concentration, palpitations, anxiety, and regulates blood sugar levels. Oryza (gu ya) directs the other ingredients to the intestines, liver, and gallbladder, and helps support the digestive system.
Chinese herbs (1,350mg): Pseudostellaria root (tai zi shen), Dioscorea root (shan yao), Dolichos seed (bai bian dou), Schizandra fruit (wu wei zi), Oryza sprout (gu ya), PAK (Pyridoxal alpha, Ketoglutarate 300mg)
