Progressive Labs Description:The nutrients in Elo-plex are important for the normal body protection of adrenal cortex hormones (corticosteroids), adrenal medulla hormones (adrenalin and noradrenalin) and brain synthesis of catecholamine.Tyrosine: Wurtman & Associates from the Department of Nutrition and Food Science, MIT, have established that tyrosine can accelerate catecholamine synthesis, i.e. adrenalin and noradrenalin in the human sympathoadrenal system, due to enhanced saturation of the enzyme, tyrosine hydroxylase when supplementing with tyrosine.It is the function of adrenalin and noradrenalin to prepare the body for responding to stress. The lack of adequate output would result in compromised stress reactions. Adrenalin and noradrenalins functions are accomplished by increasing the metabolic rate of activity and excitability of the whole body.Specifically they:1. Increase the release of glucose into the blood, if the body lacks this normal function the result is prolonged states of low blood sugar with low functioning states physically, mentally, and emotionally.2. Alleviate abnormal low blood pressure.Hypothalamus: Under stress secretes corticotrophin releasing factor (CRF) that causes the anterior pituitary to release ACTH increasing adrenal production of glucocorticoids, often increasing cortisol secretion 20 fold. Produces the following effects:1. Elevating blood sugar,2. Blocks inflammation,3. Enhances wound healing,4. Increasing resistance to all forms of physical or mental stress.Adrenal: Naturally occurring precursors and polypeptides to support adrenal function.
