IsoCort will supplement low cortisol levels and works well in addition to adrenal glandular supplements. It will not make you feel more energetic, but it will build your cortisol levels so the rest of you feels better. Eventually, you will regain energy more quickly and have better staying power throughout the day. Start with two tablets and build until you feel better, but do not exceed recommendation. Be consistant. If you miss a dose, it will leave you with less energy the next day. It should be used ONLY if you have been tested and know you have low cortisol levels. Remember that too low cortisol symptoms are very similar to too high cortisol symptoms.
Better than any other adrenal glandular here

A very smart nutritionist explained to me that Isocort is superior to all other adrenal glandulars and here's why: - Standardized release of cortisol in each pellet unlike glandulars which are irregular in the amount they release per tablet, and per batch. - According to him, the adrenals prefer steady, not fluctuating support. So this will provide better support and healing. Since taking these I've felt better. They seem more powerful than the other glandulars I've used such as the one from Nutricology. I take licorice as well for the same reason and have cut my dose. I take 4 of these pellets at 7.30am along with vitamin C (Now Foods C-1000/calcium ascorbate that can be taken on an empty stomach) and 4 pellets at 12-1pm.
Excellent product but short of details.

Greetings. I wanted to know from what plant source was the product was made. I was more comfortable knowing it was from adrenal cortex of an animal. Pig or cow I do not know. But the closer the product is to humans, like from mammals, the better I believe it is. Thanks. Thomas K.
Oh my! What a difference!

38 year old female with "mild" adrenal insufficiency(flight or fight response is exacerbated), borderline thyroid (although symptoms are unbearable), very low BP with a high heart rate (read POTS and adrenal link), unexplained aches and pains (conveniently called CS and or fibromyalgia). I have spent a ton of money on adrenal supplements (thanks to iherb giving so many choices of brands and what not). The doctor whom I went to regularly relocated - he is a researcher/ fibro specialist. I did great on cortef and armor, until the news dropped that Aug 2011 was my final appointment. So I did a frantic search for doctors who could follow the same protocol, till today have found none or have found a doctor who tried to vary the supplements and prescription. With knowledge in my hand, and some time and money, i decided to take rein of my never ending health miseries which have plagued my life for past 10 years. Isocort (PLANT DERIVED) 8 pellets per day has been a life saver which no other adrenal supplement could do. That plus thyroid supplement plus a PS capsule at night changed my entire perspective of me, myself, my life, health everything. I decided to go off isocort because of cost (how stupid!), now am paying the price for past 1 week without isocort - i have all my allergies (in winter!), fatigue, sleepiness, no energy and all the things which plagues me before. So, I ordered today from iherb and writing this review immediately. I think this is something I have to invest in, for my wellbeing. Thanks!

I searched for months to find a natural cortisol. It has been working great for me. But, do research first on taking cortisol or hydrocortisone for low adrenal function.
