I was having digestion issues for 5+ years. Food intolerances, anxiety, poor sleep, nervousness and on and on. Several doctors coule not help me. A few naturopaths susspected the digestion issues as the root of my problems. Candida was a term. I took all those antifungals and probiotics, spend several houndred Euros an them but nothing worked. I actually got worse. Then i finally met a naturopath who talked about the term 'adrenal fatigue'. I had not heard about that before. So she suggested to run some test and i was diagnosed with mild adrenal fatigue. First she gave me some homeopathic tinctures. They helped a bit but they were too weak. Then the said I coule try some adrenal extract and proposed this product. After taking this for 2 weeks I saw improvement in my digestion I had not seen since getting ill. Then I knew all my problems were caused by adrenal fatigue. This was like the Aha moment. Beside taking a pill I chamged my lifestyle. So do not expect to live a stress life and get a pill to fix all your issued. That will not work. Good sleep being the most important thing. I still take this now after having started 2 months ago. I take it in conjunction with a herbal formula called adrenal optimizer. I can eat almost everything now without trouble. I have more energy and my body temperature is warm again. But if I have stressfull days in a row, sleep bad and do not eat right I can feel symptoms coming back. So watch your lifestyle. This pill is just a support.
This is an excellent supplement if your Adrenals are fatigued, but this product has been processed to remove all hormones. Frankly, I couldn't tolerate other Adrenal Cortex products. I contacted Thorne and they confirmed that this product is without hormones, thus it would nourish your Adrenals without affecting your hormones. Start with 1 cap for the first few days, then take 1 with breakfast and 1 with lunch, increase your dose to 2 after a week and so on until you take 6 or 8 daily. Then if you still need support, start supplementing DHEA and Pregnenolone. A Cortisol Saliva Test is recommended before all that, but you can take this product without the test since ithas no hormones. Please visit my page for more reviews Good luck
Only for mild adrenal fatigue!

First of all, I don't like the term "Adrenal Fatigue" because it can mean anything from high cortisol to low cortisol or high DHEA and high cortisol etc. I prefer the word "Hypoadrenia". If you have mild hypoadrenia (slighly low cortisol or low morning cortisol and high afternoon cortisol) this supplement may do wonders for you. But if you have advanced hypoadrenia (very low cortisol all day long), watch out of adrenal cortex supplements! You can try them but be careful. I have CFS with advanced hypoadrenia and every Adrenal Cortex supplement I have tried, act as a stimulant for first 1-2 days and also gives me headache. Third day they make me more fatigued than ever.
"Vegetarian Product".... NOT!

I have nothing to say about the actual product working as yet...BUT... I did notice this is advertised as a VEGETARIAN product????.... It is derived from BOVINE....BOVINE... that is BEEF... which is most definitely NOT vegetarian! .....

Am using it because of exams. Works, I am much more relaxed but without the weight gain I get from other adreanal support-like things.
