Recommendation for Adrenal Glandular

Discussion in 'Adrenal Rx and Leaky Gut Rx' started by Huck, Apr 21, 2012.

    After several months of taking adaptogens, my morning cortisol is lower than before I started taking them. Can anyone recommend a good adrenal glandular?

    Do you guys know of any options for raw adrenals without the cortisol/adrenaline component?

    Some of them are just bovine adrenals. I was looking at Swanson.

    Nutricology makes some good adrenal glandulars. They have a selection of whole adrenal, adrenal cortex or adrenal medulla to choose from.

    Thanks, Huck and Hazy. I'm currently taking Wilson's Adrenal Rebuilder. Does anyone have experience with that?

    I haven't taken any of his supplements, but I love his book!

    Should I be taking an adrenal support, if my morning and day cortisol is a sort of OK but my night cortisol spikes? I just don't want to make my night cortisol go any higher.

    I am trying to lower the night one with PS and magnesium. I think it is getting better but am still waking up during the night and can feel the rush.

    I would take cortisol modulators. Ashwaganda during the day is supposed to help modulate cortisol at night. It's also generally supportive of the adrenals.

    Thanks, hazyjane, I'll give it a try.

    I've been trying Relora(300 mg) and Holy Basil(500 mg) along with 50-100 mg of B6 before bed and that seems to dial down the cortisol. I am not waking in the night(1-3 am) but the lightening of the sky wakes me between 5 and 5:30 am. I'm able to roll over and sleep for another hour or so...if I feel jittery from the cortisol spike in the am, I'll take another capsule of the Relora and the Holy Basil. I've had some pretty good nights of sleep(interesting dreams too!) since I started doing this. I don't even have to get up for the bathroom on these nights!

    That is interesting. I would be happy to wake at 5 am instead of 2am. I've been taking Ashwaganda. Is it OK to add Relora and Holy Basil?
