eighty percent of the people that are over 40 and more importantly

1:09

1:13

thank you for having me and for those either may not remember Dr. Agin

1:16

1:20

integrative approach but actually reflected in his family medicine

1:24

doctor reagan also is co authored two books on health care

1:27

NEC’s patients have all ages it maintains a diverse array of clientele

1:32

including professional athletes and celebrities

1:34

so Dr. Agin what’s going on out there what what is this

1:37

adrenal meltdown that so many people are experiencing

1:41

well first let me tell you a little bit about the adrenal glands okay so the

1:44

adrenal glands are too small pyramid shaped clans that are on top at the

1:47

kidneys on both sides okay

1:49

and what do they do in these claims are basically there to keep the body in

1:52

balance

1:53

in so what happens is they secrete hormones when you’re under stress

1:56

or fear

1:57

it’s called the fight-or-flight response in the body okay so these claims are

2:01

basically responsible for keeping the body in balance owen et

2:04

secrete these hormones so you can actually get the body ready for this

2:08

fight or flight reaction it also has a responsibility of them bring the body

2:12

back down

2:13

in the balance okay so it’s just like like I’m thinking adrenaline you know

2:17

you get that shot

2:18

when when you have to deal with fear whenever you have to Rahner fighter

2:21

whatever it is that’s what we’re talking about the exactly adrenaline are up in a

2:25

friend and that’s one of the main hormones to get the body going that’s

2:27

what gets the heart rate going

2:29

get you ready for a fight okay and then on the other side but you also have

2:32

cortisol and DHEA which are two other hormones that are also

2:36

release from the adrenal glands to help balance a body out given energy

2:40

and the problem is is that with today’s fast-paced society

2:44

didn’t deter so many things going on as far as asleep in in weight

2:48

in you know bad food choices and in too much stress and emailing texting

2:52

the desired real glands are being taxed all the time

2:55

so now you can see that all the sudden these hormones which is being released

2:58

to released into circulation

3:00

nothing shutting off and eventually they’re just gonna start shrinking

3:03

in actually stop producing the hormone in the body won’t be able to get back to

3:07

those who wear their melting down

3:08

mean early but that’s that’s the you get this situation where they’re just not

3:12

working anymore

3:13

yeah if you can imagine just unopposed adrenaline flowing through the body

3:17

in nothing being able to turn it off were eventually your body’s gonna have

3:20

to start using all its resources to continue to try to put this fight on

3:25

and one of the main things that we lose our nutrients in a specially B vitamins

3:28

or B vitamins okay that they can soon then by the adrenals

3:32

yes the adrenals really rely on B vitamins to both

3:36

put this fight or flight reaction up but it also is essential for calming the

3:40

body down

3:41

so what are some other warning signs me for some relisting right now how

3:44

how would you know that iiiii II might be dealing with this adrenal meltdown

3:50

well there’s a whole whole list ’em of symptoms that you might experience and

3:53

that’s the that’s the rule

3:54

top part about this meltdown but some in the main things youngsters in his lack

3:58

of energy

3:59

that’s one of the many use plain minutes right exactly lack of energy than

4:03

feeling stressed out or being on edge as you in me as you can imagine anything

4:06

with stress you start getting

4:08

zaidi nervousness you’re an edgier double mmm-hmm feeling about depression

4:12

has another big one homelessness rap starts leading having trouble sleeping

4:17

you know obviously weight gain decreased sex drive pain

4:20

I will talk more about the immune system as well the court is all

4:24

which is released by the adrenal glands is essential for immune function

4:27

means another thing you’ll find is that these groups are people that were always

4:30

healthy before

4:31

are now all the sudden getting sick all the time what those let’s talk about

4:34

that a little bit because

4:35

you’re not gonna make this stress go away now the in a perfect world he say

4:39

okay I’ll reduce the stress in your life right all really

4:42

yet rated yeah exactly so what is the way to deal with this how do you go

4:47

about

4:47

getting that adrenal system back up and running like it should be

4:51

well I mention B vitamins and as a man glad you can ask this question because

4:55

one of the things we did as I I went back into the lab in a bassist are

4:58

formulating a very very strong formula B vitamins

5:02

so knowing that the adrenal are being taxed so hard right now in the stressors

5:06

are going away

5:07

I really wanted to get something out of the lab so I a

5:10

put a formula together I’ll be vitamins that are put together with the right

5:14

amounts

5:14

to combat this adrenal fatigue and so this formula that I call vital B-plus

5:19

basically has all the vitamins that we need has vitamin b1

5:23

I N vitamin b2 riboflavin vitamin b3 niacinamide

5:27

vitamin b5 pantothenic acid vitamin b6 pyridoxine

5:31

b12 which is cyanocobalamin B-nine which is fully

5:35

and of course be seven witches by a tool these are the these are the key

5:38

vitamins then a key nutrients that %uh that is required

5:42

by the adrenal system in order to operate correctly

5:45

yeah I mean there the required an essential for the adrenals

5:48

month the B vitamins also have specific roles in the body

5:51

as well and we’ll talk about that a looking good good one so what happens

5:55

then when you start getting these B vitamins

5:57

from from your by to be plus four million your body me wonder what are

6:01

some other things that

6:02

you might be able to feel rolled the first thing that I like to mention is

6:06

energy

6:06

the the vital B-plus formula was you know in the intentions were to give back

6:11

some other an energy as we start building back the adrenal glands mmm-hmm

6:14

but the other things you’re gonna see is it some other irritability starting to

6:17

go away

6:17

in some the depressions going away and as the adrenal start to function better

6:21

you know you can get the sleep in the libido coming back but you know some the

6:24

immediate things that we see is energy

6:26

in that’s one thing driving them to the position anyway is that they want more

6:30

energy

6:30

now are you using Vital B plus in in your practice as well

6:34

oh absolutely and what what what some other feedback that you get from from

6:37

your patience

6:38

both the first thing is a the usually feel the energy and that’s what we can

6:42

and we’re hoping for a year has energy is actually going to get people to start

6:45

cutting down on some of these external sources of caffeine right

6:49

rain you know is we were gonna talk about energy drinks but just in general

6:51

caffeine can actually cause

6:54

the adrenal to be more stressed out and it also different things were caffeine

6:57

and what it’s doing to the jury knows cause people to crave

7:00

you know fatty sugary foods in and you know it just puts people in a vicious

7:04

cycle year

7:05

you know the big thing is a start to feel energy hmm and the next thing you

7:09

know is a stick with it then

7:10

a lot of the other symptoms such as depression in irritability

7:14

the SingStar going away and they just are seeing okay you know what this is a

7:17

healthier option for me

7:18

near alright folks well if you’re just joining us to have Dr. Agin the

7:22

studio again with us today we’ve been talking about

7:25

adrenal meltdown and unfortunately about

7:29

eighty percent of the population over the age of 40 is dealing with this

7:33

situation but the result to that is a is having impact on your health and that

7:38

some other things we’ve been talking about today the energy the anxiety the

7:42

inability to sleep I mean these are just some huge things that I think so many

7:46

people are wrestling with yet what happens is it when you take someone

7:50

that has all the stress on him in there basically keeping that adrenal spew no

7:54

pumping out adrenaline and cortisol trying to balance the body

7:57

and what happens is it everyone will start to get these symptoms have

8:01

decreased energy

8:02

weight gain the immune system starts to function bad

8:05

then you start getting sick in in the get to this vicious cycle then the

8:09

bodies even more stressed and then it goes back around trying to pump out more

8:12

adrenal hormones

8:14

well we don’t have the B vitamins to support the the adrenal glands the

8:17

adrenal glands are already burned out

8:19

and you can just see that they’re caught in this vicious cycle just keep feeling

8:22

worse and worse and worse in the end point

8:24

if not corrected

8:25

can be very devastating how you know it seems to me this is like the perfect

8:30

hell storm if you will is that you know you’ve got these

8:33

the stresses that are burning up the B vitamins in the same time we’re not

8:37

getting enough B vitamins from the foods we eat right

8:40

that’s exactly right so can we talk a little bit about about your by to be

8:43

plus I’ve got some here

8:45

insurer so so the B vitamins are in it what what what exactly B vitamins are in

8:49

here

8:49

what we packed with the important ones for the adrenal glands include the body

8:53

what it needs to

8:54

can to combat this issue and so you know we talked about the them

8:57

initially and thats be one which time in yeah and out so that that’s very

9:01

essential for metabolism

9:03

vitamin b2 as riboflavin that’s very important for getting energy from our

9:07

foods

9:08

news also central for red blood cell production oh okay

9:11

red blood cells basically carry the oxygen to write issues which is very

9:14

important for the body to function

9:16

we also vitamin b3 which is called nice cinema I’d

9:19

and this vitamin is essential for bringing down the bad cholesterol and

9:22

actually

9:23

can be as good as some other medications when taken we also have vitamin b5 ima

9:27

talk more about vitamin b5 is kinda called the anti stress hormone okay

9:32

a woodstock will be six which is called pyridoxine very sensual for the immune

9:36

system helps balance out the fluids in the body

9:39

okay a lot of the women will take b6 and get you know some results as far as a

9:43

fluid retention

9:44

okay it’s also center for brain function and then we have a b7 which is biotin

9:48

which a great one for the listeners his you know often when people are feeling

9:52

adrenal meltdown they start saying that their hairs falling out its getting

9:55

brittle nails are breaking

9:56

and when the bees are getting burned up a lot of times they don’t realize how

10:00

much by it in plays a role

10:02

in the skin and hair alright and then you’re fully which is be nine

10:06

in its it’s essential for you know function even and women that are

10:09

pregnant because it’s a

10:10

essential for the nervous system and babysitter in your old mmm-hmm

10:14

and so it’s also extremely important for cell production in Seoul regulation

10:18

in and the last we talk about his B-twelve and vitamin b12 cyanocobalamin

10:22

is another one essential for the nerves and the nervous system

10:26

is again is just it’s one that you just don’t wanna get depleted in

10:29

in so they’re kinda completes the formula but

10:32

it’s really that mix and the way we put this together in the lab that makes the

10:36

vital B-plus formula that important so let’s talk a little bit more about b5 so

10:40

you said this is kinda the

10:41

the anti-stress vitamin why is a known as that because

10:45

b5 seems to be the one that has the most direct essential

10:49

function and the adrenal glands and when you look at what it does

10:52

basically it’s very important for the break down carbohydrates

10:56

fat and protein into actual energy for the body okay

10:59

as we’re talking about energy being one of the main symptoms

11:02

the people experience you can see that in replenishing the b5

11:05

is so important to get that energy back and it’s also very essential for an

11:09

immune system so

11:10

basically without that be five those adrenal have no chance at recovery

11:14

okay are a while well those sound very important ninos these are capsules

11:19

cracked and at what I guess when things are surprises me doctor is how

11:23

small these are how easy to swallow they would be yeah it’s very important not to

11:27

who put some big capsules together is it is cuz theres imitating the note no

11:31

question now you said you take normally

11:33

to with these a day as that term do take a morning or

11:36

yet to come in the morning I mean you can take a min anytime I always

11:39

recommend with food nom but you know like I said

11:42

i mean sometimes actually have people take four to six capsules

11:45

really six capsules for a month four capsules for a month and then back down

11:48

to the two but it really depends on just what you know how severe symptoms

11:52

well now when you start taking your vital B-plus formula I mean

11:56

how quickly does that work missus is this something that you can see right

11:59

away

11:59

yeah I mean we can actually see it and that’s the interesting thing is it

12:03

the body uses up all the bees in EDS issues

12:06

but sum up all components of the B vitamins we don’t need

12:09

and it’ll go off into the urine turns urine yellow but I just something like

12:13

that so you at least know

12:15

that’s working I am stored in the body wow well what are some of the other

12:18

things that you feel

12:20

when you start taking it well first things you’ll start to see you have more

12:22

energy

12:23

and that’s extremely important but you also start seeing that you’re you know

12:26

less edgy

12:27

are less irritable and approves your mood now looks or less depression

12:31

arm you increase your metabolism are less pain in muscles from decreased

12:36

inflammation

12:37

better sleep I hansen’s mental clarity prove your sex drive

12:41

and then a stronger immune system we just don’t have time to be sick anymore

12:44

or I will if you’re just joining us I have Dr. Brent Agin in the

12:48

studio with the season MD he he has a practice where he works with

12:53

all kinds a different people including celebrities and athletes

12:57

and we’ve been talking about this thing called adrenal meltdown that

13:00

eighty percent %uh the population over 40

13:04

is dealing with this because I’ve the stress because a burned by Armin because

13:08

we’re not getting B vitamins

13:10

through our foods so what’s your take on these energy drinks

13:13

hope we’re all reaching out for solutions to this adrenal

13:16

raisins and and unfortunately the energy drinks are just not a solution

13:21

mean if you can imagine any injury noser are burning upper B vitamins

13:24

in its basically in a in a energy crisis so if you take

13:28

sugary caffeinated energy drink the body’s basically already in a fight or

13:33

flight reaction yeah

13:34

in your giving all this loads a caffeine into its almost causing more stress

13:39

on the body in the injury noser not able to handle that you’re already in a

13:42

stress crisis

13:43

so you can see that it’s Kenny burning a candle from both ends year

13:46

now want to talk a little bit about term multi-vitamins and

13:50

you know they’re love people are listening right now that are taking a

13:53

multivitamin

13:54

hoping that is gonna fill the gap between the foods that they are eating

13:58

and what

13:58

what the nutrients are that their body needs

14:01

why can’t that fill that gap that need

14:05

that exist well the multi vitamin has a lot of good things in it but not enough

14:10

for many of them

14:10

okay so it is just not a solution there’s nothing wrong with taking a

14:14

multivitamin

14:14

yeah but it’s not going to be the solution for the adrenal glands

14:18

from a B vitamin perspective and in getting the B vitamins from your food is

14:22

just another question

14:23

well gosh we will what would you eat what what kind of foods or are

14:27

are Hamby vitamins A well once I tell you I’m sure you’re in a rush hour star

14:30

just fill I

14:32

but things like liver liver us hard not

14:35

I 10 sardines home well these are all in all right at the top of my shopping

14:40

egg yolks even but you know it’s the helps which actually

14:43

also have the most to calories and in even if you were to eat all that you’re

14:47

still not gonna get the right amount two servings

14:49

it’s just impossible I mean the statistics now

14:52

or so strong to support that we’re not even coming close to the right amounts

14:56

are micronutrients

14:57

you know which include the vitamins on it has not been happier

15:01

yeah exactly one of the other things that I know has been talked about a lot

15:04

as metabolism

15:05

particularly when you’re dealing with low-energy is vital B-plus something

15:09

that would have a

15:10

a positive impact on metabolism yeah you mean it comes from two sides again

15:14

some other B vitamins are in the formula specifically necessary

15:18

for metabolism we talked about B one and B five and even be six

15:22

but the other thing is as you know the adrenals are very key for metabolism as

15:26

well

15:27

very important for the way we handle our blood sugars Linda

15:30

so it’s pretty important which which kinda brings up the whole

15:33

diabetic thing and I’m particular you’re just talking about blood sugar

15:37

would buy it’ll be plus have a positive impact on

15:40

someone who is said trying to deal with diabetes

15:44

it’s actually a sensual I really needs you know is

15:47

is we’re starting to see this issue with the jury knows I mean the ability for

15:50

our bodies to handle

15:51

you know blood sugars in in the synergy between cortisol

15:55

insulin is very strong and you know they’d actually done a lotta research

15:59

in regards to diabetes and adrenal spin cortisol and B vitamins

16:04

in actually found it you know even diabetics have a 75 percent less

16:08

amount to be vitamins in our systems and people without diabetes while earning

16:12

talked about the problem

16:13

a burning through men that were so deficient in the bones are ready

16:17

diabetic seem to get even a little bit more reduction in it just because I’ve

16:20

the disease

16:21

in the problem with balancing the sugars how

16:25

I had no idea now again we’ve been talking about your vital B-plus formula

16:29

if somebody calls today in and in get your formula

16:32

what are some other things that they should feel when they start taking well

16:36

energies a very important one in that’s one of the first things you’re gonna see

16:39

is good it clean energy

16:40

and then obviously after then gonna see the irritability stars going down

16:44

you’re depressed mood goes down you start to feel a little bit more

16:47

comfortable

16:48

sleepers a hormone driven your process

16:51

in cortisol which is released by the jury a chance is driving the whole sleep

16:54

cycle

16:55

9 so when you can actually improve someone sleep in

16:58

are you have a very Happy happy patient or I will if you’re just joining us we

17:02

have been talking about

17:03

adrenal meltdown that so many of us are dealing with it again

17:06

these are symptoms like reduced energy fatigue not being able to sleep

17:12

feelings a bank shares nissen anxiety well we’ve been talking about the root

17:16

cause

17:17

being not having enough B vitamins

17:20

17:32

why is it so important to take action now

17:35

as opposed to waiting basically you can get to a disabling situation in this is

17:40

this is what the real hard the problem is is that

17:43

we’re talking eighty percent of the population news people are having all

17:46

the symptoms

17:47

and if you don’t take these is warning signs and start to do something about it

17:51

in

17:51

the end result can be devastating and when I say that I can’t stress it enough

17:54

that

17:55

when you start talking about adrenal fatigue syndrome and the

17:58

extreme results %uh adrenal meltdown it can be a point to where people can

18:03

outwork

18:44

where it sounds like this is even more important to get the

18:47

the the B vitamins from vital B-plus into your body’s

18:51
