Description: Adrenal extracts are supplements derived from bovine adrenal glands or the adrenal cortex. They may contain minute amounts of naturally occurring corticosteroids. Many researchers believe that the nutritional profile, including RNA and polypeptides, supports human adrenal gland function. In the human body, the adrenal glands are located on top of each kidney. The adrenal glands are responsible for producing stress hormones such as cortisol, to control the effects of stress and inflammation. Fatigue is the most common reason to take adrenal extract ­ supplements.
