Fat Loss: An Adrenal and Adipose Issue

June 29, 2020 Puzzle Piece

Research from the study “Adipose Tissue and Adrenal Glands: Novel Pathophysiological Mechanisms and Clinical Applications” shows that, “Adipose tissue hormones or ‘adipokines’ have direct effects on the adrenal glands and interact with adrenal hormones at several levels.
“Here we review the emerging evidence supporting the existence of “cross talk” between the adrenal gland and adipose tissue, focusing on the relevance and roles of their respective hormones in health and disease states including obesity, metabolic syndrome, and primary disorders of the adrenals.”
Research shows a strong link between the adrenals, how much body fat a person has and if they are able to shed the excess. The latest research is zeroing in on adipose tissues and the connection to the adrenal glands.
Adipose tissues are a heterogeneous group of tissues classified based on histology and function as white adipose tissue (WAT) and brown adipose tissue (BAT). The adipose tissues are a source of several hormones termed “adipokines” or “adipocytokines.”
Researchers from the study said, “Adipokine roles in regulating systemic energy homeostasis, body weight, vascular biology, inflammation,  glucose and lipid metabolism have been well defined.”
The adrenal cortex produces androgen hormones, all of which decline substantially with excess stress and age. The most noteworthy hormone is DHEA. A number of epidemiologic studies have shown correlations between circulating DHEA-S, obesity, insulin resistance and cardiovascular disease.  DHEA helps prevent the development of new fat cells.
“The dramatic changes in fat distribution characterized by central adiposity with wasting of subcutaneous fat deposits, typical of Cushing syndrome, have led to the hypothesis that adrenal exhaustion may play a role in more common forms of visceral obesity. While circulating cortisol levels are not increased in obese individuals, increased net cortisol production occurs locally in the adipose tissue.”
To help with adipose tissue hormone health, you need to take care of the adrenal glands. In order to do that, it means delivering a highly potent, bioavailable array of nutrients at the cellular level to allow for proper adrenal health and function.
Opti-Adrenal: Glandular Care for Your Adipose Tissue Hormones


A No. 1-selling Dr. Brimhall formula for years, is a synergistic blend of whole food nutrients and bioavailable glandulars, providing adrenal health, function and regeneration.
Opti-Adrenal contains a therapeutic dose of whole food vitamin C, riboflavin, vitamin B6, pantothenic acid, and predigested glandulars, along with an array of other nutrients that support the key players for adrenal health and function. Together, these nutrients are shown to help your body reduce cortisol levels, maintain a healthy response to stress, and reduce fat mass.

The essence of weight loss and management is quality calories in and to burn those calories for energy.  The math will not add up if your mitochondria are not doing their job. Without proper adrenal function, the food intended for energy burn, will get stored as fat.
Opti-Mito-Force contains proven nutrients that can revive your mitochondria, which may be the exact push your body needs to properly burn fat and maintain a healthy weight. It can accomplish this by helping minimize the stress effects on the body, mind, emotions, and the mitochondria.

Both an underactive and overactive thyroid can lead to weight abnormality. The thyroid gland uses iodine from food and supplements to make the hormone thyroxine (T4), which is converted to the more potent, bioactive form called triiodothyronine (T3). Thyroid function works in concert with the pituitary gland, adrenals, parathyroid, and sex glands, all of which work together to maintain hormonal balance in the body.
Opti-Thyroid provides tyrosine, iodine, and selenium, along with other micronutrients that are essential for the production of T4 and its conversion to T3. B vitamins from a whole food cultured media blend are present to support energy production, while vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta-carotene provide support for antioxidant activity and tissue protection. Chelated minerals, choline, betaine hydrochloride (HCI), and glutamic acid provide further support for metabolic functions. Glandular support comes from an Argentinian bovine source and are predigested to ensure safety, usability, and purity.

The thyroid needs a minimum of 12.5 mg of iodine daily.  Often, we recommend the addition of Opti-Iodine to give ample iodine and iodide.
Opti-Iodine provides whole food micronutrients that are essential for the production of thyroid hormones, providing a foundation that best supports the thyroid gland. OHS Opti-Iodine is the only iodine supplement to utilizes predigested whole food ingredients. You need your thyroid functioning optimally or you run the risk of your body holding on to excess fat. There is a strong connection between thyroid function, metabolism and weight loss.


Yours in Health and Wellness,
