Supplements to Nourish the Adrenal Glands. If you’re suffering from adrenal fatigue (or been trying to figure out what the hell’s wrong with your health) you may already be drowning in a mish mash of supplements. This is probably because you are attempting to relieve some of the seemingly unrelated symptoms and find some normalcy again.
I use the Lifestream powders of the below vitamins so I can put them all into one shot with my adrenal herbs – twice a day. Easy!
What to take –
1. Vitamin C by Lifestream
Your body uses vitamin C to produce cortisol. When vitamin C is all used up, the body panics, in a sense, and paradoxically tries to create more cortisol to calm the situation. The adrenal glands then get stuck in a cycle of exhaustion due to creating something for which they don’t have the ingredients.
You’ll need to high dose this. See my earlier post on Vit C.
2. Magnesium by Lifestream
A lack of magnesium leads to more stress on the body and, again, overworks the adrenal glands.
3. Sea salt is loaded with nutrients and minerals that your adrenal glands desperately need. Sodium is crucial to the functioning of the adrenals. It’s also alkalising. Take 1 teaspoon of sea salt in a glass of water each morning. Make sure you purchase unrefined salt such as Celtic or Himalayan.
Ashawaganda somnifera is an adaptogenic herb, meaning that it basically adapts to your body’s need and circumstances. Ask for it in your health food store.
5. Vitamin B Complex by Lifestream
B vitamins are also produced by your adrenal glands. Vitamins B5 and B12 in particular are often lacking in adrenal fatigue patients.
Recovery from AF IS possible, given the proper nutrients, as well as abundant rest and a positive attitude.
