Thorne Research's Adrenal Cortex provides pure dried bovine adrenal cortex in capsule form.
Product Information The adrenal cortex is responsible for producing a special group of hormones known as corticosteroids. These hormones are comprised of glucocorticoids, mineralocorticoids, and 17-ketosteroids, and are essential for key homeostatic processes throughout the body.* Glucocorticoids are necessary for glucose metabolism and immune response.* Mineralocorticoids help maintain healthy electrolyte balance and already normal blood pressure.* The 17-ketosteroids are associated with sex hormones produced by the adrenal glands.*
In today's world it seems as though everyone is functioning in "high-stress" mode. Dietary habits fraught with caffeine and refined sugars, and lifestyle habits that deprive us of adequate rest and exercise can, over time, take their toll on the adrenal glands. Adrenal cortex tissue extracts play a valuable role in supporting healthy adrenal glands - which helps maintain immune function and promotes a feeling of energy.* Glandulars also help support healthy cortisol levels.* Adrenal cortex provides adrenal cortex tissue for focused support and normal adrenal function.*
