What Is It?
Ortho• Adapt contains adrenal gland extract, adaptogenic botanicals including ashwagandha, Rhodiola, licorice and Siberian ginseng, and vitamins C and B5. Glandulars provide a time-tested way of providing key factors directly to
the gland in a way that single nutrients and botanicals cannot. As one of AOR's best-selling formulas, the proof is in the results.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: Ortho• Adapt is designed to help the body deal with stress effectively, stimulating the adrenal glands and helping to prevent adrenal insufficiency. Adaptogens are substances that provide support to the body during times of stress. They activate whole-body, nonspecific defenses, redirecting the body's resources to provide energy for active engagement with any stressor, whether physical, emotional or environmental. Vitamins C and B5 are quickly depleted during stress and are required by the adrenal glands to make stress hormones. All of these factors work together to prevent fatigue and burnout, boost energy levels and support the ability to cope.
Who Should Take It?
Ortho• Adapt can provide a boost for anyone who is stressed, tired or trying to keep up with the demands of today's fast-paced lifestyle at work, school, sports or family life at home.
