Hypoglycemia Support Herbal Remedy

Being able to stay balanced and steady during times of stress requires optimum function of the adrenal axis (HPA), pituitary, hypothalamus and the glands involved in stress response. Many people suffer from adrenal "burnout" or constant fatigue that is unrelieved by sleep or rest. Some of the symptoms of adrenal fatigue include allergies, dark circles under the eyes, mild depression, lack of energy, decreased ability to handle stress, muscle weakness, absent mindedness, decreased sex drive, mild constipation alternating with diarrhea as well as others. You may have a craving for sweets, low blood pressure and low blood sugar, irritability and hot flashes, as well as other symptoms of menopause. This formula contains liquid herbal extracts that have been shown scientifically to sustain healthy function of the glands and systems most effected by stress. Doctors consider the condition to be incurable, however, recovery from adrenal burnout is definitely possible and these are some of the best herbal extracts for supporting and invigorating the adrenals without over-stimulating them and for helping the body cope more effectively with stress. 

Licorice root has anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic and anti-arthritic effects that are similar to that of cortisone, without its side effects. This is because of glycyrrhizin which raises the body's level of cortisol by inhibiting its breakdown. Licorice Root is the best known herb for supporting adrenal function. And it is an ancient herbal adaptogen that contains potent chemicals called saponins. Herbalists believe that the saponins help the adrenal cortex regulate the chemical called adrenocorticotropic hormone. This is the hormone that is released in the body when it is under stress. This anti-stress herb is known to increase energy, endurance and vitality and act as a mild tonic. It has been used to ease drug withdrawal and stimulate the adrenal hormones for anti-inflammatory action. Licorice is known to help decrease symptoms of hypoglycemia, and soothe nervous stomachs, also a common side effect of decreased adrenal function. Licorice root extracts may be a helpful adjunct to treating liver disease, displaying a protective effect on the liver. And because it is also anti-inflammatory and antiviral, Licorice may be especially helpful in cases of chronic hepatitis, or long-term liver inflammation, as well as, mononucleosis, an infectious condition that can result in abnormally elevated liver enzymes. 
Juniper Berry is a natural tonic for the adrenal glands providing better glandular health. Native Americans used it to treat infections and relieve inflammation and pain caused by arthritis. Juniper Berry tincture is a great general blood purifier and system cleanser for combating bacteria, acid and toxic wastes from the body and strengthening it against disease, fighting a broad number of infections. Juniper berry extracts also stimulate the kidneys when used in small amounts, increasing waste product filtering and preventing uric acid crystallization, helpful for the relief of gout. Juniper berries can be used to improve digestion and to strengthen weak stomachs. 
Dandelion is an excellent source of potassium and vitamin A which are both important when the adrenals are stressed. Because of the diverse chemistry of the plant, Dandelion roots and leaves find themselves in a number of herbal products for supporting various organ systems. Dandelion extracts assist in stimulating the body's production of bile, detoxifies the liver and treats problems with the spleen, pancreas and stomach. It is nourishing to the kidneys and adrenal glands. Because of the high content of iron in Dandelion root, it is beneficial for building red blood cells in the body to treat anemia. It has been shown to lower blood sugar levels in those with diabetes and detoxifies the vital organs for fighting infections and achieving optimal health. Due to its high content of vitamin B-complex, Dandelion can help to stablize mood and treat depression. Ongoing studies are working to link the benefits of Dandelion root tinctures for the treatment of cancer and as a medicine for reducing cholesterol. 
Wild Yam can normalize the production of the adrenal cortex hormones and influence adrenal function in menopause. Wild Yam may increase DHEA, used to treat adrenal insufficiency and systemic lupus erythematosus, and a precursor to the male and female sex hormones. As we age the amount of DHEA produced by the adrenal glands decreases, leaving the body susceptible to cancer, stress and premature aging and age-related disease. Wild Yam also contains diosgenin, which is a phytoestrogen that is purported to have a mild effect on levels of hormone estrogen in the body. It does this by supplying nutrients which rapidly enable our endocrine glands to produce a complex array of hormones. If our bodies are in a state of hormonal adequacy and balance, health will follow and be maintained. Wild Yam can also help to control insulin levels, for treating functional hypoglycemia. Wild Yam extract is one of the most widely used herbal extracts to build strong digestion and increase metabolism, reducing weight gain and can benefit everyone who takes it. Wild yam is a mild tonic to deliver a 1-2 punch to help beat stress and the effects of aging. 
Ginger Root helps modulate cortisol levels and balance blood sugar, and it is helpful for adrenal fatigue. It supports the body's reaction to stress, that can affect brain function and lead to heart and memory problems. Ginger root extracts have been used to deal with nausea and digestive problems. Ginger is an adaptogen that helps to normalize blood pressure and heart rate, burn fat, increase energy and metabolic rate. Because individuals may have an under-active thyroid, they frequently have high cholesterol levels and Ginger root may help reduce these levels and stop blood clots. Ginger root tincture is also helpful to lessen the inflammation connected with joint disease and like conditions. And, because stress can cause inflammation and immune dysfunction, Ginger root tincture may help in combating these.
