We use whole adrenal tissue sourced from bovine; the part of the adrenal gland used is the cortex (outer area) and the medulla (inner area). "Lyophilized" means that this is a very absorbable form of adrenal tissue. The lyophilizing process preserves the natural makeup of the original gland, making it highly potent yet well tolerated. In addition, this form of processing also helps increase bioavailability.
What is the source used for the ingredient "citrus bioflavonoid" in Brad King's Ultimate Anti-Stress?
The source used for the citrus bioflavonoids powder is from the peel and rind of the fruit itself. As a citrus powder product, the type of citrus used is seasonally dependent, but is typically from lemon and grapefruit.
What makes Anti-Stress better than other adrenal (stress) formulas on the market?
Lyophilized adrenal tissue is a powerful glandular (and part of non-vegan Ultimate Anti-Stress), that possesses synergistic natural compounds that help to replenish and restore healthy adrenal function. Lyophilized adrenal tissue (along with the other natural ingredients in Anti-Stress) has been shown to help support physical or emotional stress, poor stress tolerance, general fatigue, allergies, mood disorders, and many other stress-related concerns.
Is Ultimate Anti-Stress gluten free?
Yes, we do have confirmation on file that there is no gluten added and no gluten present in the Ultimate Anti-Stress formula. However, our manufacturing facility is NOT a gluten free facility, and as such, we are unable to confirm 100% that there is no possibility of cross contamination.
Will this product help me lose weight?
Even though many studies support the fact that excess stress can make it very difficult to lose excess weight, there is no such thing as a "magic" pill or product when it comes to weigh loss. The only way to succeed (and maintain) true weight loss is by adopting a healthy lifestyle combining adequate exercise and proper nutrition. If you are concerned about poor eating habits or cravings, then we recommend you seek advice of a Nutritionist or Naturopath to obtain some guidance on healthy eating, as well as to investigate possible underlying (or undiagnosed) hormonal imbalances, which can make it harder to lose weight. You might also want to consider speaking with a personal trainer to help you discover a fun fitness program that you enjoy. In order to achieve and maintain any type of weight loss, exercise is required. Our vitamins and supplements are designed to help you in your quest to a daily, healthy lifestyle, however it also requires effort on your part.
