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.

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.
Didn't make any difference

My naturopath has me on this 2x/day. So far I cannot say that I see any difference, but it has only been a few weeks. As always, Thorne products are clean and safe packaged. That I appreciate.

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.

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
