For people with true adrenal fatigue (see book Adrenal Syndrome by G E Poesnecker)adrenal cortex is a must. It is based on the knowledge of glandular function: a poorly functioning gland does not produce enough hormones, or poorer quality, or not at the times of need. Replacing the hormones will lead to even poorer functioning or at worst to atrophy of the gland. Repairing the gland through glandular extract was discovered long ago, but seems to be underground knowledge for most people. I am so happy that I could finally try adrenal cortex extract, as I have long suffered from adrenal fatigue. The product worked for me immediately, it increased my energy, normalised my blood sugar levels, and increased stamina. Will use for as long as necessary to rebuild the adrenals.

Maybe due to the cocktail of glandular extracts in this product, it had a very strange effect on me; my blood pressure and pulse became frighteningly erratic - hypo- to hyper-tension and back between readings taken minutes apart. For anyone sensitive to supplements in general, but particularly those whose adrenal function has tested as poor, it seems best to stick with something purer and more streamlined for the problem.

I purchased this without reading the ingredients properly. Titanium dioxide according to the Canadian Center for Occupational Health and Safety may be a human carcinogen. At this stage it's unknown but as it's been flagged I'm not prepared to risk it. I'm taking vitamins to get healthy, not to add to the toxic load my body has to process. Very disappointed

I have ordered these but on the label: 150 mg adrenal cortex instead of 250 mg and 50 mg of the other ingredients instead of 100 mg? How can that be, I've got a cheaper version?

I ended up not taking it because it has titanium dioxide which sprints straight to the liver to never be removed. I don't want this in my liver and missed this ingredient on the label when I ordered it. it said a rating was required to submit this I gave it one star and I feel it doesn't deserve that!

I took one tablet and it made me sick. Because I have a lot of food sensitivies, the purity level for anything I consume must be excellent. I will search for an organic adrenal support product.

I've ordered this supplement twice and definitely think I have more energy when I use it.

This just wasn't for me. It gave me anxiety and insomnia.
