Adrenal Cortex by Seeking Health provides 50 mg of bovine adrenal cortex per capsule. The adrenal cortex substance used in this product is freeze-dried to preserve freshness and biological activity.
In the human body, the adrenal glands are located above the kidneys. Each adrenal gland is made up of two components: the cortex, which produces essential chemicals needed for normal metabolism and healthy stress response, and the medulla, which produces other (non-essential) chemicals. Together, these parts of the adrenal glands work to help the body maintain a healthy balance in many physiological processes.
The adrenal glands play a vital role in the complex series of physiological events and changes known as the "fight-or-flight" response, which enables us to effectively respond to environmental stressors or perceived dangers. While this response can be life-saving in certain situations, prolonged exposure to stress and other lifestyle factors that place a long-term burden on this response system may take a toll on the adrenal glands. Adrenal Cortex provides freeze-dried adrenal cortex that may contain nutrients or building blocks to support the body's maintenance of healthy adrenal tissue.
