Phytisone® Non-glandular Support for the Adrenals. Phytisone® Non-glandular Support for the Adrenals. Phytisone is a specially formulated blend of tonifying botanicals, adaptogens (plants that improve the ability to withstand stress), and nutrients that provide nutritional support for the adrenals. An abundance of research has demonstrated Panax ginseng (Korean or Chinese ginseng) and Eleutherococcus senticosus (formerly known as Siberian ginseng) are effective adaptogens, Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is the premier adaptogen from the Ayurvedic medical system. Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus) ¿ a traditional Chinese herb typically used in combination with ginseng ¿ can improve energy and optimize immune function. Licorice root (Glycyrrhiza glabra) appears to have a balancing effect on glucocorticoid activity, making it an ideal herb for general adrenal support. Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is a supportive herb that enhances the bioavailability of the other components. Phytisone also includes key nutrients ¿ ascorbic acid, thiamine (vitamin B1), pantethine (the metabolically active form of vitamin B5), pyridoxal 5¿-phosphate (the active form of vitamin B6), and zinc ¿ that work synergistically to optimize adrenal function, as well as support immune and cognitive function.
