The Jigsaw Adrenal Cocktail™ combines Wholefood Vitamin C, Potassium Bicarbonate, and Redmond’s Real Salt® in a unique formulation designed to support healthy adrenal gland function. Vitamin C plays a critical role in adrenal function, including their ability to produce numerous hormones. In fact, the highest concentration of Vitamin C in your body is stored by your adrenal glands. Additionally, sodium and potassium play a delicate dance in your adrenals and are both vital minerals for normal adrenal function.*
Your adrenal glands are walnut-shaped organs that sit above your kidneys. These "tiny but mighty" glands are essential to life and responsible for secreting a range of critical hormones like adrenaline, epinephrine, cortisol, testosterone, estrogens, DHEA, aldosterone and more. (1)*
When you're faced with a great deal of stress, your adrenal glands become overworked, exhausted and depleted of the essential nutrients they need to function properly.*
Vitamin C is critical for proper adrenal function. Not only is the highest concentration of Vitamin C found in your adrenal glands, but your adrenals depend on Vitamin C for the production of numerous hormones. And, when you do not have sufficient Vitamin C levels, it can cause an excess release of the "stress" hormone, cortisol. (5)*
The Wholefood Vitamin C used in the Jigsaw Adrenal Cocktail™ is from Acerola, derived from cherry trees in Brazil.
Redmond's Real Salt® is included because when your adrenal glands are taxed, sodium levels drop below normal and sodium starts to excrete through urine. What's worse, it takes water with it which could lead to a dehydrated state.*
When your adrenal glands are taxed, they produce less aldosterone -- an important hormone that when not at optimal levels disrupts sodium balance.*
Potassium reacts with the Wholefood Vitamin C to balance cortisol levels. Cortisol is what is referred to as the "stress hormone" and rises when you're under stress. When your adrenal glands are overworked due to stress, it causes potassium levels in the blood to become disrupted.*
