4 Natural Remedies for Adrenal Fatigue

I’ve been taking blog suggestions on my Facebook page. The idea for today’s blog came from Angela Grow–thanks Angela!

Today’s lifestyle replete with the demands of home, work, family, finances, and more can fatigue your body’s primary stress-handling glands, the adrenal glands. These triangular-shaped glands sit on top of the kidneys and are located in the solar plexus region of your abdomen. They secrete hormones that help us cope with stress, but when the stresses become chronic the adrenals can become depleted, causing adrenal fatigue.

Of course, stress management is necessary, but there are also some excellent herbs and nutrients that can give your adrenal glands a boost. Always consult a physician if you suspect adrenal fatigue and before beginning any supplements.

Vitamin C is one of the most important nutrients to the adrenal glands. It is needed to manufacture the hormones secreted by these glands in response to stress. The more stress you experience, the higher your vitamin C needs may be. A typical dose to assist with adrenal fatigue is 2000 mg or higher; however, a qualified health professional should be consulted when using higher doses.

Pantothenic acid is one of the B-complex vitamins that is essential for adrenal gland health. It is naturally present in high doses in the adrenal glands but can become depleted as hormones are manufactured in response to stress. A typical dose for adrenal fatigue is 1500 mg but should always accompany a B-complex vitamin since they work synergistically.

Keep reading to learn some of the best herbal medicines to boost the adrenal glands…

I agree that herbs and nutrients can help with stres managment. Taking calcium and magnesium supplements has also helped me a lot. As a former adrenal fatigue sufferer, it’s so important to know that others are going through this and have found a way to get better. I’ll try the vitamin C as you suggest. Here's another site with good info:
