Homeopathic Support For Stressed Adrenal Glands
We are happy to announce that we have improved this formula. It now contains rhodiola and ashwagandha in safe homeopathic form!
ProBLEN Adrenal & DHEA is a U.S. made FDA registered homeopathic formulation that is designed to support the adrenal glands and help the body to balance the adrenal hormone DHEA safely.
In today's busy world adrenal fatigue has become so common, yet because modern western medicine does not teach about this condition many doctors are unfamiliar with it, and so they don't consider the adrenal glands when a patient has symptoms.
This product is designed to provide needed support for tired and overwhelmed adrenal glands. It should help to combat the symptoms related to decreased adrenal function and unbalanced adrenal hormones safely.
What Are the Adrenal Glands?
The adrenals are two small glands and each one sits atop a kidney. Their major purpose is to help the body to cope with all types of stress both psychological and physical. However, they play other important roles including balancing salt and water in the body, helping to keep glucose stable in the blood, helping to stabilize blood pressure, and helping in the production of the sex hormones. Our energy, endurance, ability to fight infection, ability to heal and rejuvenate, and in fact our very lives depend on their proper functioning.
The adrenal glands make powerful steroidal hormones that are essential to life. Hormones released by the adrenal glands include:
Adrenal Stress - Why is Support Needed?
The busy and stressful lifestyle that many of us lead can work the adrenal glands into exhaustion. High stress, whether it be psychological or physical causes the adrenal glands to work overtime releasing cortisol.
Cortisol is essential to life because it helps to protect the body from stress. However, if we live with constant stress our cortisol level can become too high. This is the 1st stage of adrenal fatigue.
If high stress continues the adrenal glands will continue to make extra cortisol and so they are overworked. During this time DHEA, which is also made by the adrenal glands, may become low due to what is called "pregnenolone steal". This happens as the adrenals use the pregnenolone that would normally be used to make DHEA and progesterone to make more cortisol. If this condition is not treated then eventually the adrenal glands may become exhausted. This is called "adrenal fatigue" or "adrenal exhaustion".
Stage 4 is when the adrenals become so exhausted that they are no longer capable of releasing enough cortisol to protect the body from any type of stress.
Symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue
The symptoms one experiences will usually depend on the stage of adrenal fatigue the patient is in at the time, and the symptoms will probably change as the stage changes. Symptoms that may be seen at some point include: weight gain, increased fat around waist and abdomen, fatigue, low energy, accelerated symptoms of aging, insomnia, anxiety, nervousness, thin and fragile skin, dry eyes, dry skin, dry hair, loss of head hair, increased facial hair, depression, mood swings, behavioral changes, low libido, dizziness when moving or standing up, becomes shaky or lightheaded if meals are missed, craves sweets or salt, hard to get going in morning, needs caffeine, blood sugar issues, elevated triglycerides and LDL cholesterol, gut inflammation, leaky gut, dysbiosis, weak immune system, abdominal infections from pathogens such as parasites and yeast, thyroid issues, increased risk of diabetes, increased risk of cardiovascular disease, increased risk of autoimmune disease.

DHEA - the Master Hormone
DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone) is made by the adrenal glands and is the most abundant of all the steroid hormones. DHEA stimulates the renewal and replacement of tissues, it is critical to proper immune function, and it is highly active in the brain. DHEA can also convert into testosterone and estradiol when needed.
In the young healthy body DHEA is high and cortisol is low. As part of the natural aging process DHEA usually decreases while cortisol increases, add to that a life full of stress and the low DHEA and high cortisol will be more dramatic.
