PERQUE Adreno Distress Guard uniquely combines special forms of Rhodiola, Magnolia, and Phellodendron micellized in perilla oil and Medium Chain Triglycerides derived from raw palm fruit. Only PERQUE Adreno Distress Guard restores adrenal energy, improves thyroid hormone function, and enhances immune hormonal functions with evidence-based science to support the safer, trophorestorative rehabilitation of energy molecules (adrenalines) and control hormones like cortisol and DHEA.*
1. Rhodiola rosea calus / roseroot rhizome
Rhodiola rosea is a popular plant in traditional medical systems in Eastern Europe and Asia and works on harmonizing the central nervous system, decreasing depression, enhancing work performance, eliminating fatigue, stabilizing moods, as well as working as a healthy mood regulator. Cardio-protective functions have also been attributed to rhodiola in traditional medical literature. Research also demonstrates utility in restoring healthy sleep rhythms, poor appetite, irritability, idiopathic hypertension, and unexplained headaches.The mechanism by which Rhodiola rosea calus works is based on action of activity of monoamines (adrenalines, dopamine, etc.) and opioid peptides such as beta-endorphins in the body.(1) The biologically active substances salidroside, rosin, and rosavin present in the rhizome of the plant increase the ability to concentrate and enhance mental and physical power. (2) Only PERQUE assures the use of the active, safer, effective rhodiola form.*
2. Magnolia and Phellodendron extracts
PERQUE Adreno Distress Guard uses Relora®, an all-natural, proprietary, patented extract of Magnolia officianalis and a proprietary extract of Phellodendron amurense. Magnolia officianalis is a tree native to the rain forests of China. Its bark has long been used in a variety of ways, including for the use of stress and anxiety control. Phellodendron amurense, from the Amur corktree, grows in northeastern China and Japan. Together, these extracts support or restore levels of the cortisol and DHEA hormones in the body. This promotes the management of stress-related issues.(3) Magnolia and phellodendron work together by binding to stress hormone receptors in the nervous system to promote relaxation and feelings of well-being, yet do not attach to the benzodiazepine receptors associated with sedation and dependency.
A special benefit noted by many is reduced stress-related over-eating. James Lavalle, ND, R.Ph., CCN and The Living Longer Clinic in Cincinnati, OH studied the effects of these extracts on cortisol and DHEA levels as well as stress-related eating habits in over 500 people. Elevated first morning cortisol levels were lowered by 37% (over one-third!), and DHEA increased by 227% (more than doubling this helpful anabolic hormone). In addition, stress related snacking of sweets, such as ice cream, cake, pie, and cookies was reduced by 76% in those individuals who reported they ate these foods under stress.
3. Perilla oil plus MCTs
PERQUE Adreno Distress Guard is micellized for maximum absorption and efficacy.* Perilla oil and Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) provide a unique combination of energetically active essential oils that are also natural stress-reducing agents. Perilla oil comes from Perilla frutescens seeds. Perilla oil is rich in omega 3 fatty acid [alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)]. ALA stimulates repair and can be called anti-inflammatory on this basis. It also has cardio-protective effects by preventing arterial blood (platelet) clots and reducing overly active platelet aggregation (4, 5).
MCTs derived from raw palm fruit soak up cell acids and produce energy in the mitochondria. MCTs are easy to assimilate and metabolize in the body, especially important to those with delicate stomachs or who are rebuilding their digestion.
