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.
Advanced B Complex
The B vitamin family includes vitamin B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), B7 (biotin), B9 (folic acid or folate), and B12 (cobalamin).
Though they have essential roles in the body B vitamins are easily lost from the body through urine and sweat. This fact, combined with other factors such as a modern diet high in processed foods, means that it’s easy to become deficient in B-vitamins. Additionally, certain groups, including vegans, vegetarians, and the elderly, are at greater risk for Vitamin B deficiency.
Aging, for example, affects how well you take in and use B12 from foods. Deficiency can lead to numerous health issues, including blood sugar imbalances, neurological disorders, anemia, and depression. The body must convert B vitamins into their active coenzyme forms in order to absorb them. Some people have genetic alterations that reduce their body’s ability to perform these conversions. Vegan-friendly Advanced B Complex contains all of the B-vitamins in their active coenzyme forms, and in balanced doses to ensure that you get the most out of your B-complex.
Advanced B Complex™ delivers the biologically active and most efficient forms of these vitamins in balanced ratios and research-backed doses.
Probiotics help to re-establish and support a normal bacterial microflora in the intestines.
Probiotic-3 is a unique probiotic formula that contains three bacterial species with specific health-promoting attributes: Enterococcus faecium T-110, Clostridium butyricum TO-A, and Bacillus subtilis TO-A. While these three strains are new to the North American market, they have been widely used in hospitals and pharmacies throughout Asia for over 50 years.
E. faecium T-110 is a natural resident of the human gastrointestinal tract that produces lactic acid, which reduces the gastrointestinal pH, thus preventing the growth of harmful bacteria. C. butyricum TO-A is also a natural resident of the human gastrointestinal tract. It breaks down dietary fibre into several beneficial nutrients, one of which is butyric acid, which feeds cells of the GI tract. B. subtilis TO-A supports the growth of E. faecium and C. butyricum, as well as the growth of several strains of the beneficial Bifidobacterium species.
Clinical studies have shown wide-ranging health benefits including allergy reduction, improved immunity, reduced bloating, constipation and diarrhea, and even enhanced detoxification. Additionally, Probiotic-3 is the only probiotic product in Canada that contains a strain of bacteria from the Clostridium family, which has been shown to have antagonistic effects against several pathogenic bacteria such as C. difficile, H. pylori, and E. coli.
