Douglas Laboratories Adrenplus-300 supplies a combination of vitamins and minerals needed to maintain good health, plus adrenal and spleen glandular concentrate. The adrenal glands are endocrine glands located above the kidneys that are responsible for producing mineralocorticoids, glucocorticoids and androgens, as well as adrenaline and noradrenaline. The spleen is located in the upper-left abdomen and is primarily responsible for filtering blood.
As co-enzymes, B vitamins are essential components in most major metabolic reactions. They play an important role in energy production, including the metabolism of nutrients. B vitamins folate and B12 are also necessary for blood cell formation.
Zinc is an essential trace element required for the activity of over 300 enzymes and is involved in most major metabolic pathways. Vitamin A plays a critical role in maintaining eyesight and night vision through its role in the formation of the retinal pigment rhodopsin. Both zinc and vitamin A help maintain skin and immune health.
Adrenplus-300 also provides vitamin C, an important water-soluble antioxidant that protects cells from free radical damage. The adrenal glands contain some of the highest vitamin C levels in the body, and may require the antioxidant vitamin to quench free radicals produced during steroidogenesis.
