Herbal HPA is the licorice-free version of Herbal Adrenal Support Formula, a unique, liquid herbal dietary supplement designed to help balance and sustain functioning of organs and glands affected by stress, especially your adrenal glands, and to support healthy levels of adrenal hormones in times of stress.* Its combined ingredients promote healthy functioning of the Hypothalamus, Pituitary, Adrenal (HPA) Axis that modulates your body’s response to stress and helps support hormonal balance during perimenopause, menopause and postmenopause.* For people with high blood pressure or licorice sensitivity, it works as an alternative to Herbal Adrenal Support Formula® with Adrenal Rebuilder®, Super Adrenal Stress Formula® and Adrenal C Formula® as part of Dr. Wilson’ Program for Adrenal Fatigue and Stress to comprehensively support adrenal health when you are experiencing adrenal fatigue and stress.*
Herbal HPA is the version without licorice of Herbal Adrenal Support Formula, and is designed for people who are sensitive to licorice or who avoid licorice because of high blood pressure. It provides many of the same benefits.
Anyone who cannot take Herbal Adrenal Support Formula and is experiencing stress and/or adrenal fatigue, or who feels the need for extra support after a period of stress can benefit from taking Herbal HPA.* Also, a number of people with occasional difficulty sleeping say they have more restful nights after taking it at bedtime, and some women going through perimenopause, menopause or postmenopause report that it helps them sleep at night and feel balanced throughout the day when taken in the morning and at bedtime.* Taking Herbal HPA daily before and during an anticipated stressful event such as a long flight, final exams, overwork, long hours, etc. can help support healthy adrenal function throughout the stressful time.*
The herbs in this formula are liquid tinctures which are 25% alcohol. This method extracts the highest levels of active plant components for optimal benefit. People who cannot take any alcohol may add the recommended dose to 8 oz. of water and simmer for 10-15 minutes in a pan on low heat to evaporate the alcohol before drinking.
Your adrenal glands are the first glands to feel the effects of stress and are the primary glands to lead in the recovery from stress.* The low energy feeling following an illness or other stressful event is typically due to lower adrenal function and, as the adrenals gain power after the stress, the fatigue and lethargy lessens.* The herbs in this formula work together to help promote healthy adrenal function during times of stress.* Healthy adrenal function promotes sound sleep and steady energy levels, and helps maintain hormone levels during and after menopause.* These herbs also facilitate optimal function of regulatory mechanisms such as the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) Axis, that control hormones involved in the stress response. Optimum function of these mechanisms results in healthy levels of hormones such as cortisol that play an important role in regulating many processes in your body, including sugar metabolism and immune function.* In addition, this unique formula helps promote normal function of your thyroid gland, which can also be strongly affected by stress.* Herbal HPA is a powerful herbal combination that is designed to help rejuvenate and promote the overall health of body organs and tissues affected by stress in addition to specifically benefiting your adrenal glands.*These are just some of the beneficial activities of this unique formula.*
Each of the carefully selected herbs in Herbal HPA has a variety of properties that, when combined, work synergistically to support your body during and after stress.* All three of the herbs are adaptogens (non-toxic substances that act in your body to support normal function).* Each of these three herbs has different adaptogenic properties which combined provide a well-rounded synergistic effect to fully support and help promote normal function of the tissues, organs and hormones involved in the stress response, especially of the adrenal glands.* Together, they help promote healthy adrenal and thyroid function, and balanced cortisol, insulin and blood sugar levels.* All of these activities help protect and maintain health during and after times of stress.*
Your body has the same response to every type of stress, no matter what the cause. Optimally functioning adrenal glands are necessary for healthy recovery from trauma or stress, whether that stress is physical, such as from an auto accident, injury, sickness, exposure to extreme heat or cold, overwork, illness, infection, excess exercise, fatigue, low blood sugar, hormone imbalance; or psychological/emotional stress such as insufficient finances, relationship disharmony, disappointments, loss of loved ones, changes in job status, or the many other sources of stress in our modern lives.*
Herbal HPA does not artificially stimulate or drive your body or body systems. It contains no caffeine, cola, Gotu Kola, ephedra, pseudoephedrine, Dexedrine, or other agents that falsely stimulate your body while actually depleting it with continued use.* This is a powerful herbal combination that is designed to support and help invigorate the glands and tissues affected by stress and to promote overall body wellness.*
Herbal HPA is designed to begin acting quickly to help promote normal glandular secretions for people under stress.* However, results will vary depending upon the stress level, the overall health of the individual and several other factors.* Some people notice its effects within the first two days, most feel a difference within two weeks.*
