Glandular concentrate with factors for adrenal support
AdrenaCort supplies freeze-dried, BSE-free, adrenal cortex, along with a complex of factors that support the function of the adrenal glands. Pantothenic acid and vitamin C are required for adrenocortical steroid synthesis, and licorice contains compounds that inhibit the catabolism of glucocorticoids, thus extending their life and activity. Bioflavonoids are added for their ascorbic acid-enhancing effects.

Animal studies have shown oral adrenal extracts to produce similar effects as injectable extracts (Boll Chim Farm 1971;110:457-62).
Licorice contains compounds with mineralocorticoid activity that reduce the catabolism of glucocorticoids, thus extending their life and activity in the body (Endocrinology 1993;132:2287-92; Endocrin Regulations 1994;28:31-4).
Micronutrients known to be important for normal adrenal function include vitamin C, vitamin B5 (d-calcium pantothenate), magnesium, and zinc (Textbook of Natural Medicine, 1999, 549).
