Adrenal and Stress Support
The wear and tear from the daily grind takes a toll on your body, more specifically, your stress response from your adrenal glands. “Adrenal fatigue”, “adrenal exhaustion” and “adrenal burn-out” are all terms for a condition resulting from your body being overwhelmed with stress. This condition is extremely common, especially in fast-paced cities like Hong Kong. It can occur at any age, if there are major stresses, emotional or physical. It is not a disease, but rather a state of decreased function and adaptation ability of the adrenal glands, our “fight or flight” system. It can be caused by one major stress, physical or emotional, or a result of chronic, low-grade stress over many years.
Vitamin B5 (aka pantothenic acid, aka the “anti-stress vitamin”): It helps regulate your production of the stress hormone cortisol from your adrenal glands when you’re under stress. B5 helps keep your adrenal glands functioning well to support our stress response.
The main function of this water-soluble B vitamin is in the synthesis of coenzyme A (CoA) and acyl carrier protein. CoA is essential for fatty acid synthesis and degradation, transfer of acetyl and acyl groups, and a multitude of other metabolic processes. Acyl carrier protein’s main role is in fatty acid synthesis.
