AdreneVive is formulated to help respond to HPA axis overload by reducing cortisol levels and limiting the negative impact of acute adrenal stress. Combining three popular adaptogenic herbs (Siberian Ginseng, Rhodiola and Ashwagandha), this formula also includes an extract of Scutterlaria biacalensis to help support the immune system during times of stress.
Ashwagandha is a traditional herb used in Ayurvedic medicine and it has many reported adaptogenic properties including anti-stress and immunomodulatory. Siberian ginseng is approved by the German Commission E monograph as a tonic to help with fatigue and concentration.
Rhodiola rosea has also been recognized by a few organizations in Europe as an anti-fatigue agent. L-theanine is an amino acid found predominately in green tea. It has been found to increase dopamine and serotonin production in the brain and increase alpha-brain wave activity, a sign of relaxation.
Phosphotidylserine is known for its ability to reduce cortisol production during HPA axis overload and is a precursor to important neuron metabolites. Phosphatidylserine is a phospholipid that is found in high concentrations in the brain. Studies show administration of phosphatidylserine to stressed subjects has been found to blunt the effects of cortisol and ACTH.
