On the Road to Wellness: Adapten-All

January 16, 2013 — Leave a comment

Adapten-All adrenal support supplement, along with a multi-vitamin and fish oil, has also helped a lot.

Thanks to my fabulous gynecologist, I have a compounding pharmacist, Scott Berliner from Life Science Pharmacy in upstate NY, who makes my bio-identical hormone replacment cream ever 90 days. Since he is trusted by the physicians at Beth Israel, I trust him too. When Dr. Sondhi at Continuum tested my thyroid and found everything to be normal, I emailed Scott.

The First Bottle of Adapten-All

He immediately replied and recommended Ortho Molecular – Adapten-All, saying that it worked well for adrenal fatigue, but would take about three months to really set in. I ordered a bottle from Amazon, and two days later had them. Scott recommended that I start with one capsule in the morning and one at lunch for two weeks, then two capsules morning and lunch thereafter for at least 90 days.

I am at the end of the first bottle of 120 capsules, and between the multi-vitamin, the fish oil, the better diet, the acupuncture, and the Adapten-All I am feeling much better.

Why Adapten-All Works

According to Scott and to their website,

The Importance of Natural Vitamin and Mineral Supplements for Adrenal Health

A balanced vitamin and mineral supplement regimen is critical when addressing adrenal regulation. The synthesis and secretion of cortisol is largely dependent on adequate supplies of various vitamins. Vitamin C is needed for steroid biosynthesis and is depleted from the adrenal cortex upon high cortisol secretion. Niacin derivatives are also necessary co-factors for steroid biosynthesis. Pantothenic acid is vital to maintain steroid secretion from the adrenal cortex.

Herbal Extracts that Support Adrenal Health

Siberian ginseng, Rhodiola rosea, Glycyrrhiza glabra, and Schizandra chinensis are all considered to be adaptogenic herbs. Adaptogens are substances that nonspecifically increase the resistance of stress and exerts a balancing effect on various systems in the body (immune, central nervous, etc).

All I know is it appears to be helping, and is certainly not hurting. 120 capsules runs $44 on Amazon (about 10% lower than direct buy from the maker).
