Best Time to Drink this Adrenal Health Support Cocktail

Adrenal health problems can occur after stressful situations in your life. Cortisol levels are raised during these times. Cortisol is a hormone produced in the body that helps regulate our metabolism, controls blood sugar levels, sleep, and inflammation. Adrenal fatigue is the belief that when we become stressed, our adrenals don’t produce enough cortisol to regulate those functions effectively. People will feel “burned out” and exhausted. This results in a feeling of overwhelming stress. This stress is what some relate to as adrenal fatigue. However, when our bodies become stressed, our adrenal glands produce more cortisol.

In the case of adrenal insufficiency, the adrenals are nod producing enough hormones. This can lead to deficiencies in either aldosterone or cortisol, or both. It is best to get a blood test, specifically testing the levels of both aldosterone and cortisol. This will give you a clear indication if you need cortisol or synthetic aldosterone. There are also a few natural ways to help these insufficiencies. That includes extra salt, maca powder, and even licorice root.

This adrenal gland health support drink is perfect because of the addition of Himalayan pink salt, coconut cream, and maca powder. If you are feeling “burned out” and exhausted, try drinking this a few times a week and see if you notice any changes in your symptoms. It is important to note that if you are feeling any adrenal gland symptoms, you should consult your personal physician to order a blood test to check out your hormone levels.
