      When should adrenal complex be taken?

      Adrenal complex can be taken with any daily vitamin and mineral supplement.   It is best to take adrenal complex in the morning, an hour before breakfast. You can also take it at lunchtime or before dinner if you are frequently having problems getting to sleep at night.

      How do I know that it's working?

      Give your body 3 months to respond to Adrenal Complex and see if you notice any improvement in your symptoms. If you don't notice a change or feel better, take a break for 2 weeks and then try again. It may take anywhere between 1 – 6 months for your adrenals to recover depending on how chronic the condition is.


      Adrenal gland supplements

      What do adrenal support supplements do?

      Adrenal support supplements help the body to recover and become more resilient. They enable the body to deal with stress more effectively and are just as important for recovery as vitamins and minerals.

      Can adrenal supplements help with anxiety?

      Yes, anxiety can be caused by a deficiency of vitamins and minerals. For example, a deficiency of vitamin B-6 can result in anxiety and depression. Taking adrenal support pills along with other supplements such as magnesium will help to balance out the levels of nutrients that are deficient in the body.

      Why is it important to take adrenal support pills regularly?

      Once you have recovered from an overactive or underactive adrenal gland it is important not to go back and lose the progress that has been made. Every time you have a period of stress, be it work, bereavement, illness, surgery or holiday it can cause stress and eventually lead to a recurrence of your symptoms.


      What is the best vitamin for adrenal fatigue?

      There is no single best vitamin or mineral that will help to cure adrenal fatigue syndrome. Each person's nutrient requirements vary according to their stress levels and diet. For example, one person may be low in magnesium whilst another may be low in vitamin B12. One way to tell if a supplement is working for you is based on the lab test I mentioned earlier. If your cortisol levels are increasing under the stress test then you're improving!


      How do you reset your adrenal glands?

      The best way to reset your adrenal glands is with a good diet, adequate exercise and alot of rest.

You may even need to take some time off work if you are unable to control your symptoms. It's also helpful to avoid stimulants like caffeine, cigarettes and alcohol.
