Adrenotone™ is a combination of standardized adaptogenic herbs and nutrients which are known to contribute to rejuvenating the adrenals. This product is designed to help support healthy cortisol levels, hypothalamic and pituitary function (HPTA axis), and catecholamine production (dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine).**
• Panax quinquefolius (American ginseng) and Ashwagandha (Indian ginseng or Withania) - the ginseng family of herbs possesses a unique property of aiding in the regeneration and enhanced function of hypothalamic cortisol receptors, providing an amphoteric effect (can act as a base and an acid), which allows the body to better self-regulate cortisol levels
• Glycyrrhiza glabra (Licorice root) - licorice potentiates and extends the serum life of cortisol, thereby lessening the demand on the adrenal cortex during stressful conditions
• N-Acetyl-tyrosine - included as a critical building block of various neurotransmitters, thyroid hormones, and catecholamines (often depleted under chronic stress conditions)
Also included are vitamin C, pantothenic acid (B5), vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate) and vitamin B2 (as Riboflavin-5-Phosphate), all playing critical roles as enzyme co-factors in the balanced production of stress hormones.
Adrenotone™ is a comprehensive blend of nutrients and botanical compounds designed to support
healthy adrenal function.* The adrenal glands are responsible for regulating a wide variety of processes in
the body, most notably the “fight or flight” response to stressful situations. These glands produce several
hormones and neurotransmitters, some of which are designed to help regulate energy levels and mood
on an ongoing basis, and others which are intended to be released only in short bursts, to help power
someone through brief moments of intense stress or vigilance.
Due to the fast pace and unrelenting demands of modern life, however, the adrenal glands are taxed
with producing higher amounts of these compounds more frequently. This may first result in overactive
adrenal function, with very high levels of stress hormones (cortisol, in particular), but the glands can only
keep up with this increased demand for so long before they begin to lag behind, eventually leading to
poor adrenal response, in which output of these critical hormones and chemical messengers decreases,
resulting in fatigue, reduced initiative, low moods, and difficulty handling even mild amounts of occasional
stress. It is common for some people to “ping-pong” back and forth between these two states, leading to
feeling simultaneously “tired and wired.”
B-vitamins and vitamin C are crucial contributors to energy generation at the cellular level, which may
bolster adrenal function and combat the fatigue that is a hallmark of suboptimal adrenal function. The
amino acid tyrosine is a building block for thyroid hormones as well as the neurotransmitters dopamine,
epinephrine, and norepinephrine, which are involved in balanced moods and the ability to cope with stress.
B-vitamins—specifically B6—serve a second function as required cofactors in the biochemical processes
that produce these critical neurotransmitters. All of these nutrients are available in food, but over time,
stress may increase the need for higher amounts than are typically obtained from the diet alone.
A key feature of Adrenotone™ is the inclusion of several herbal adaptogens—compounds that help the
body regulate the production of various hormones and neurotransmitters. Whether the need is for an
increase or a decrease, they facilitate the normalizing of these levels. Rhodiola, ashwagandha, American
ginseng, and eleuthero are adaptogens that have been used for centuries in Chinese and Ayurvedic
medicine to support healthy responses to stress. An additional ingredient, licorice, helps cortisol stay in
the bloodstream longer, thereby lessening the demand on the adrenals to produce more of it.*
