The medulla is the inner part of your adrenal gland and produces hormones which regulate your autonomic nervous system. The adrenal medulla secretes catecholamines, hormones that help your body respond to stress, such adrenaline and noradrenaline. Adrenaline is also known as epinephrine and noradrenaline is known as norepinephrine.
Under stress, either actual or perceived, your body releases these hormones produced in the adrenal medulla to boost organ functioning – also known as the fight-or-flight response. These hormones released due to stress can have impacts on mood, cognition, mental clarity, etc.
The nutrients in Elo-Plex® are important for the normal body protection of adrenal cortex hormones (corticosteroids), adrenal medulla hormones (adrenalin and noradrenalin) and brain synthesis of catecholamine.‡
