Essential Therapeutics Adrenal Cortex 250 MG - 120 Capsules

This glandular concentrate contains the outer cortex section of bovine adrenal gland obtained from countries recognized to be BSE-free. The extract is lyophilized (freeze dried) to preserve biological activity.

Adrenal Cortex extracts are used to replenish and eventually normalize adrenal function. An advantage over cortisol hormone replacement is adrenal cortical extracts can be discontinued once they have done their job of repairing adrenal function.

The adrenal cortex produces corticosteroids which help to maintain balance for many body functions. Adrenal Cortex supports healthy cortisol levels, which helps relieve fatigue, muscle and joint pain, helps maintain the body's normal immune and stress responses, provides instant energy and is great for those who are tired or fatigued in the afternoon.

How do I know when my adrenals are working properly again?

By following these simple self testing methods you will understand how and when your adrenals are functioning properly.

Ragland’s Sign - an abnormal drop in systolic blood pressure when a person arises from lying to a standing position. There should be a rise of 8-10 mm in the systolic number. A drop in systolic blood pressure indicates adrenal insufficiency.

Pupil Dilation Exam - To test for this reflex you’ll need a flashlight and a mirror. Face the mirror and shine the light into one eye. If, after 30 seconds, the pupil starts to dilate, adrenal deficiency should be suspected. The hormone epinephrine is released under stress and causes dilation of the pupils. During adrenal insufficiency there is a deficiency of sodium and an abundance of potassium. This imbalance of potassium causes the inhibition of the sphincter muscles of the eye. These muscles normally initiate pupil constriction. Normally the pupils will constrict in the presence of bright light. However, when there is a sodium deficiency (adrenal insufficiency) the pupils actually dilate (get larger) when exposed to light.

Rogoff’s Sign - A definite tenderness in the lower thoracic (mid back) spine where the ribs attach.

Adrenal Gland Fatigue/Exhaustion, What Happens?

The adrenal glands sit atop the kidneys and secrete a variety of hormones including adrenaline, male sex hormones, and cortisol, a hormone produced in response to stress. Two well-known adrenal gland disorders are Cushing's Syndrome, marked by excessive hormonal production and Addison's disease, marked by adrenal deficiency.

The majority of patients seen for chronic illnesses, including FMS and CFS, are suffering from adrenal exhaustion. They have literally burned their stress-monitoring organ out. Between years of poor sleep, unrelenting fatigue, chronic pain, excessive stimulants, poor diet, and relying on a plethora of prescription medications, the adrenal glands, and the hormones they release, have been used up.

Once adrenal exhaustion sets in, it’s not long before the body begins to breakdown. Getting “stressed out” and staying “stressed out” is the beginning of chronic illness for most, if not all of, the FMS and CFS patients. Fortunately, with the right supplementation we can address all of these challenges.

Very helpful to support adrenals and thyroid June 10, 2016
Reviewer: Ronda from Durham, NC United States  
This adrenal cortex does not contain the adrenaline portion of the adrenals, which is important to me. It is a powerful remedy for sluggish adrenals. For me, it is a strong enough to be only one step below hydrocortisone, which I have taken previously. I would much rather take the more natural adrenal cortex than a replacement dose of hydrocortisone, and the adrenal cortex has been very effective for me.
