Ortho Adapt™ is AOR’s premium antistress formula, containing adrenal gland extract, adaptogenic botanicals ashwagandha, Rhodiola, licorice and Siberian ginseng, and vitamins C and B5. Adrenal gland extract provides a time-tested way of providing key factors directly to the adrenal glands (a.k.a. the “anti-stress” glands) in a way that single nutrients and botanicals cannot. As one of AOR’s best-selling formulas, the proof is in the results shown with improved energy and better stress coping abilities.
Ortho Adapt™ is designed to help the body deal with stress effectively, by stimulating the adrenal glands and helping to prevent adrenal insufficiency. Adaptogenic herbs 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.
Ortho Adapt™ can provide a boost for anyone who is stressed, tired, fatigued or trying to keep up with the demands of today’s fast-paced lifestyle at work, school, sports, or family life at home.
AOR’s Ortho Adapt™ targets adrenal support from three different angles: adrenal extract to supply all the needs of the adrenals, orthomolecules to prevent deficiencies of key co-enzymes, and adaptogenic botanicals to modulate the stress response. AOR™ uses whole licorice extract, as opposed to deglycyrrizinated licorice extract, since it is the glycyrrhizin in licorice that benefits the adrenals. Ortho Adapt™ is also available in a vegan formula without the glandular extract.
