Innate Response Brand

by Carly Neubert, BA, NC on September 15, 2021

We are back today with another brand intro! The brand in question is Innate Response Formulas - which focuses on carefully formulated whole-food supplements with additional nutrients to support a holistic health view. The name comes from the biological definition of an innate immune response, aka the physical, chemical and cellular defenses your body utilizes against pathogens. The purpose of this response is to stop harmful foreign invaders before they have the chance to move anywhere else in your body. Innate Response’s products are formulated based on this very same principle. They aim to provide powerful supplements that support your body’s innate healing principles.

Innate Response also boasts several additional unique traits:  all of their raw ingredients are certified Glyphosate Free, Gluten Free, and Non-GMO.  They test the foods from which they make their supplements for over 125 pesticides and herbicides.  They are dairy and soy free, as well as free from magnesium stearate.  Most of their formulas are vegan and all of them are vegetarian. 

Innate Response uses whole food ingredients in their supplements.  You can imagine the manufacturing process is  interesting.  They literally flash freeze fresh vegetables to lock in their nutrients.  Then they create a huge smoothie of vegetables and fruits as they blend different nutrients.  From there, they use a process called SloFood in order to dehydrate the fruit and vegetable mix.  Studies show that their ultra-slow method of dehydration retains more nutrients than conventionally dehydrated foods.  

Some of Innate Response Formulas’ key products are the Adrenal Response, Women’s 40+ multivitamin, Flora 20-14 ultra strength, and other multivitamins. Today’s blog will be focused on familiarizing you with Adrenal Response and how it relates to managing stress, along with Innate Response Formulas as a whole. You may just encounter your new favorite whole-food supplement brand. 

The Brand 

Innate Response was founded in 2003. Their current CEO is Robert U. Kraven. The company considers itself to be “the Human Body’s biggest fans,” meaning that the human body is naturally designed to preserve homeostasis - or balance. Innate Response was founded upon the desire to support this balance. 

Why should you try to get your body to act in a way it isn’t designed to? Innate Response understands the futility of this question. Instead, they manufacture a line of products designed to improve the healing capabilities that your body already exhibits. 

Innate Response states, “We forget that atoms and cells and tissues and organs are just part of what makes us human. We forget that people and families and communities and cultures are inherently linked, and that we depend on one another for our survival.” Stepping away from relying on reductionist medicine, they also focus on the viewpoint that a human being is a whole, encompassing mind, body, and spirit. To take this, “conscious step towards wholeness” their products are available for a medley of concerns on the health spectrum. 

Now, you may be wondering - How exactly does Innate Response accomplish this? They start from food. All of the nutrients present in whole foods are extremely difficult to recreate in a test tube. There is something about the quality of what’s available in nature that simply cannot be replicated. Starting with whole foods, they add nutrients through various vitamins and minerals, says their leading expert in integrative medicine Tieraona Low Dog, M.D.. Expanding on their holistic perspective, Innate Response recognizes that ecosystems and communities are all interconnected as well. Thus, they strive to operate ethically and ensure that they improve the environment as much as they do the lives of their customers.

Adrenal Response

Innate Response Formulas Adrenal Response is a product that most people would benefit from. Our modern lifestyle requires our adrenal glands to overwork and overproduce.  Most people are running around like chickens with their heads cut off at the expense of their health, specifically their adrenal health.  Unfortunately most people have come to accept and even prize high levels of stress.

Your adrenal glands need specific nutrients in order to produce cortisol and other stress hormones in your body.  Innate Response has included the nutrients necessary for your body to create an adrenal response. This process is essentially how your body handles stress, during which your adrenal glands release hormones like adrenaline and cortisol. These hormones are a crucial part of your body’s “flight or fight” response, and increase both your blood pressure and heart rate. When faced with long-term stress, adrenal fatigue can set in, causing feelings of tiredness and being worn out that cannot be solved simply by more sleep.

The aim of Innate Response Adrenal Response is to promote a healthy response to stress. Its main ingredients are: 

  • Sensoril® Ashwagandha - a clinically researched extract of Withania somnifera standardized to 10% withanolides, which has been shown to maintain healthy cortisol levels to help support the body's response to stress. It is clinically shown in double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials to support a healthy response to stress and help to ward off fatigue
  • Adaptogenic botanical blend - supports the reduction of feelings of stress
  • Rhodiola -  a stimulating adaptogen which increases resilience

 The recommended dosage for Adrenal Response is 2 tablets daily, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner. These may be taken anytime throughout the day, even on an empty stomach. If you, like many of us, are feeling overwhelmed with everyday life, or simply want to better manage your stress, Adrenal Response is the product for you. This is a glandular-free adrenal supplement that is suitable for vegetarians.  To learn more about specific amounts per serving, you can also check out our site

Customer Reviews

"It took me quite awhile to discover what was making me fall asleep during the day and sometimes in the evening. I could close my eyes for a little while and wake up 2 hours later. I discovered it is the caffeine in my coffee that was exhausting my adrenals even though I had cut down a lot. I occasionally need to take a potassium combination for the electrolytes to balance out. I have found Adrenal Response by Innate Response Formulas is really making a difference as I just realized a few days ago I am not falling asleep any more during the day. I have woken up really early some days but have had plenty of energy the full day. I am definitely staying on these."
