A.C.E. +

Note to New Customers: Dr.Bormann would like to talk to you prior to being able to sell you this product.
Please Call the Office before sending any orders. Thank You.

Sublingual absorption is 3 to 10 times higher than oral gastric administration. Our sublingual formula is approx. 85-90% as effective as I.V. (which is no longer available).. Glandular pills by law cannot contain any active hormone, otherwise they'd be classed as a drug. Glandular pills formulas have no active hormones in them.
We're a direct distributor for the Contract Manufacturer. Made in the USA, not China or Mexico. We only use pharmaceutical grade glandulars from Free Range Grass Fed Organic Bovine from New Zeland bred for pharmaceutical manufacture.
Background and Development
Thomas Addison described in 1855 the sundrome of adrenal insufficiency,known todays as Addison's Disease. In the 1920's, Adrenal Cortex Extract (A.C.E.) was introduced into the medical community. From 1930 to 1975 when synthetic cortisone replaced ACE the therapeutic effects for a wide range of maladies were documented with no negative side effects when used as directed. Adrenal cortex extract has shwn to be effective for hypoglycemia, inflammation, drug and alcohol withdrawl, stress management, trauma, allergies, and of course Addison's Disease. Due to recent FDA rulings, i.v. A.C.E. was lost to medicine, but has been re-introduced in a sublingual form as a glandular extract.
Phamacology on A.C.E.
Adrenal cortex extract exhibits a biological activity equivalent to that of 100 micrograms of hycrocortisone, and it contains a suitable antibacterial agent.
The adrenal extract has shown more effective in management of adrenal insufficiency and hypo-function of the adrenal gland, adrenal cortex extracts correct the abnormality in carbohydrate metabolism. A.C.E. also maintains normal capillary permeability and helps in resistance to infection and stress of all types and increases the number of circulating lymphocytes and decreases serum gamma globulin content.
Comparison -- Why Ours Is Superior
Most ACE products available on the market are being manufactured by a Dietary Supplement Manufacturer (like ABCO) and marketed to Compounding Pharmacies (who don't compound this anymore), or Retail through professional supplement companies, etc. They are not using certified pharmaceutical manufacturing chemists like we do. They're using food grade glandular material, and can't use pharmaceutical grade because they're not certified to do so. Our product is considerably stronger because we're using pharmaceutical grade ingredients and a licensed pharmaceutical manufacturer. We sell wholesale to licensed doctors and practitioners or directly to our patients. FDA prohibits retailing this to healthfood stores or other non-licensed retailers of these products.
It is not possible to do a straight across comparison between ours and other ACE products out there. Since our raw material is considerably stronger using a mcg.-to-mcg. comparison isn't useful since our raw material base is multiple times stronger.
We declare "USP-NF" which means US Pharmacopea/ National Formulary which is the pharmaceutical designation for medical products. You won't find this on dietary supplement product labels because they aren't medical. You'll only find basic mg. or mcg. designation which is volume. It tells you nothing of the strength or type of raw material being used. We offer 2 strengths available. Regular 3x and "+" which is our 5x Extra Strength for those who need stronger support.

Use Instructions: For those suffering from an Acute Deficiency, it requires a tissue loading dose, which typically is 12 sprays up to 2-3 times per day or as directed or until the desired results, for a minimum of 5 days. Patients who are in acute exhaustion may need to combine with RX hydrocortisone. Patients with Adrenal Fatigue should maintain higher levels for a few weeks or as directed by medical professional. Thyroid patients should use for a few weeks and then test their Free T3, Ferritin, and do a 24 hr. Salivary Cortisol Test (we offer this testing...see our website page: Saliva Tests.
Then drop back to maintenance level of 5-10 drops per day Or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
Maintenance Level: 1 dropperful 2 times per day or as directed by healthcare professional.
Note: Individuals who are not sleeping well due to stress may find that if they use 2 sprays 2-3 times per day that they'll get sleepy as the endocrine system adjusts to not working so hard. We use it for insomniacs who are stressed out with great results. We also offer a low dose product called STRESS BUSTER StressBusterSleep Aid + Adrenal Support
In order to get accurate tissue levels of Adrenal function / Cortisol, samples should be taken over 24 hrs.
State of the art FDA Approved Saliva tests are available and are much more accurate than blood. The reagents used and the type of material the vials are made of make the saliva extremely stable and the most accurate saliva testing available.
Saliva Tests
Cortisol levels vary with the body's rhythums and therefore it is important to test during various times throughout 24 hrs. to get a more accurate measurement. It is easy enough to do by spitting into the tubes in the kit we provide, mailing it to the Lab and they send us your report. Once the test results are in, we contact you to go over results and help you put together a treatment plan. In order for us to order the test, you have to become our patient. That requires a new patient brief consultation initially by phone ($150 for a brief consult) then a follow up of $60 per 30 min. You need to request the paperwork which is sent via email as .pdf format.
Test fee: $200.00 (5X Cortisol) is strictly for the lab fee. Our consultation fee is in addition.
NOTE: It is important to maintain sufficient B6,B12, Folic & Magnesium and natural Sodium, Selenium and natural Iron to increase Ferritin should be used if that is an issue. Higher metabolism can use these nutrients up faster.

PRICE: ACE+ $65.00 ea. or 3 for $175.00 Note: Multiple bottles are only available for those already on it, not for new customers who have never used it.
