Dramatic help for burned out adrenal glands, which support your body's ability to handle stress, provide sustained energy throughout the day, manage fluid balance and fight inflammation.
Adequate sleep is also crucial for adrenal health.
Adrenal Support Supplements in Priority Order:
The adrenal glands are a key organ system for managing fluid balance, settling inflammation and providing sustained energy throughout the day. The adrenals help you sail through the negative effects of stress, including emotional, mental and physical stress, and they fight fatigue and muscular weakness.
The adrenal glands need 3 things to stay strong and healthy and any deficiency of these is the underlying cause of weak adrenals:
1) Adequate healthy unprocessed salt daily and more than you would think. See our Pink Salt for description.
2) Adequate B Vitamins. See our Max B-ND for a non-synthetic, live source B supplement.
3) Sleeping at least 5-1/2 hours without getting up (or lifting your head more than a foot). Any less breaks the cycle of adrenaline production. If you are not sleeping through the night, there are a number of possible causes. Here are the primary ones I find:
In adrenal stress, there is a continual, wholesale magnesium excretion from the body. In these cases, no matter how much magnesium is consumed, magnesium levels will often continue to be low. In these instances, we suggest our Premier Magnesium.
If you are over 35 and have eaten a lot of "enriched" foods like white flour or cereal, the rock form of iron in enriched white flour can bioaccumulate in the liver and cause low serum iron levels, which may inhibit tyrosine production. Organic, sulfite free, apricots are rich in copper and antagonize the trapped iron in the liver and over 6 to 8 months can clear this liver burden, provided no enriched foods are consumed.
Soak 6-8 dried apricots for at least 20 minutes, then eat. After 3 weeks, continue eating the apricots, and add 6 organic and sulfite free dried prunes to the diet to increase iron levels naturally. This can take 3-4 months. Iron plus phenylalanine produces tyrosine. You can also take our Tyrosine Matrix formula in the meantime.
It's also important to eliminate foods that add to stress or have a stimulant affect, such as coffee, soft drinks and junk food. Avoid extremely challenging exercise or anything that raises cortisol (the fight or flight hormone). Find ways to reduce stress including yoga, meditation, prayer, working less hours, time in nature and being with people you love.
