Supplements for Adrenal Support
Posted by Physician's Preference on 4/13/2012 to Health Concerns

Adrenal fatigue is something that affects a huge percentage of the population, especially those with a low-functioning thyroid gland. The adrenal glands not only orchestrate our short-term response to stress but they also help us to adapt to chronic stress.
Since the adrenal glands are key players in our body's response to overall stress, it's important that we supplement with high-quality vitamins and nutrients that reduce stress, on the front end, and as a consequence, can lessen the risk of adrenal fatigue.
Vitamin C is the first supplement your body becomes depleted in when our adrenals are under extreme stress. According to Dr. Hotze, it's important that we take 1,000 mg per 25 pounds of body weight. "The adrenal cortex has the highest concentration of vitamin C of all the organs in the body, and the cells of this gland use it at a higher rate than any other cells. Vitamin C inhances immunity, which is often impaired in those with adrenal insufficiency. During times of stress, our bodies excrete vitamin C more rapidly, making our need for this supplement even greater." (Hormones, Health & Happiness by: Steven F. Hotze)
Other supplements that are beneficial for adrenal fatigue are:
Inositol: a B vitamin that helps reduce stress and anxiety
Vitamin B6: a mood-regulating supplement that supports a healthy mood
Magnesium: a mineral which relaxes muscles, soothes tension, reduces blood pressure and can also help aid in sleep
