It was only one to two tablets you had to take a day at that time for maximum dosing. It just made sense to make the change. Then after using it, realizing how well it worked, it made me continue using it long term.
Art & Science of Functional nutrition™
The Adaptacin™ formula combines adaptogens with the adrenal cortex glandular. The adaptogens in Adaptacin are herbs that attenuate the effects of stress.* Together, these ingredients tonify the adrenal gland and support adrenal function.*
The NeuroSupport Blend™ (NSB) enhances absorption.* Improved absorption allows for smaller doses and fewer capsules.
Use Adaptacin to support a healthy adrenal rhythm during either the Initial, Restoration or Maintenance phases of the path to wellness.* Adaptacin is typically recommended once inhibitory support (Prolent™, Lentra™, Tranquilent™) begins. It may be used in conjunction with excitatory support (Contegra™ and Procite-D™) for patients in need of adrenal support.*

What They're Saying
What I noticed right away about the formulas was that they had the NSB™ (NeuroSupport Blend) in them. So many of our patients with adrenal issues also have gut issues, and they’re malabsorbing. Getting them on a product that's going to actually be bioavailable was super important.
I think during the perimenopausal phase, Adaptacin does a great job of buffering some of what they feel when their hormones are dysregulated.* I feel like they can maintain a better disposition, even sleep better.*
Personalized neurotransmitter Nutrition
Contegra™ is a broad-spectrum support formula for those who complain of anxiousness yet are fatigued due to poor sleep quality.
