Cortisol, a hormone produced by the adrenal glands in times of stress, is important in regulating blood sugar and maintaining healthy immune function, fertility, and overall physical and mental stamina. Usually the adrenal glands can cope with the demands of everyday life. However, in an environment of chronic stress the adrenal glands can become overworked, which can potentially lead to problems throughout the body.
Adrenal glandular tissue extracts play a valuable role in supporting healthy adrenal glands - which helps maintain immune function and a feeling of energy. Glandulars also help support healthy cortisol levels. Cortrex supplies a combination of adrenal glandulars and nutrients to support overall adrenal function and help maintain healthy cortisol levels. Whole adrenal tissue and adrenal cortex provide a component to Cortrex specific for tonifying the adrenals. Licorice root (Glycyrrhiza glabra) can have a modulating effect on cortisol activity. Ascorbic acid, thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin 5'-phosphate (the active form of vitamin B2), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (the active form of vitamin B6), and zinc are included for their strengthening and supportive role in optimizing adrenal function.
Take 1 capsule two to three times daily or as recommended by your health-care practitioner.

I started taking this product when my compounding pharmacist recommeded it to me for reducing belly fat. I am on my third bottle and have lost at least two inches of belly fat. Product does not seem to have any negative side effects. I will reorder.
These give me such a nice energy boost, I truly don't need my mug of coffee, but I still have half a cup anyways because i'm conditioned. But when I'm too busy and end up skipping coffee I don't even notice. My thyroid doctor recommended that I take this adrenal supplement after testing my cortisol levels using a saliva test. But he said it's safe and that almost everyone needs adrenal support because we are all so stressed and busy. I don't consider myself a type A or stressful person, but with young kids I am definitely busy. He also said that anyone who drinks coffee should also take an adrenal supplement because coffee depletes your adrenal system.

This was recommended by a naturpath after my body went through some traumatic health issues. I noticed a difference right away, total game changer. More energy, lost weight, felt more emotionally stable.
Didn't make any difference

I have ME/CFS and wanted to try something/anything to see if it could help. But unfortunate it didn't do anything for me. May work very well for others!
Helps facial/feet swelling
Posted by Reviewer2158908 on Sep 04, 2016
My recent test showed low Adrenal gland output. Most likely this fact contributed to periodic facial swelling and R foot swelling. With this product I notice slightly better energy and less facial swelling in the morning, also less swollen foot. The only concern for me: I feel hungry every 2,5-3 hours with this product. Would love to hear other customers' opinions if the same happens to them
For staying awake
Posted by Vizion on Jul 05, 2016
It kept me awake for 7 hours longer than usual so I will keep it around for the next time I need to stay awake for something for a long time. I am too accustomed to caffeine so caffeine no longer works on me. I have found something safe and healthy which will keep me awake whenever this is necessary. I was only aiming to tonify my adrenal glands so this reaction was unexpected.

This helps me get more energy in the mornings. I have also noticed it helps me get rid of my water retention, which especially occurs in the face in the morning. Usually I take one every morning, but some periods in my life I need to take two.
