Adrenal fatigue supplements

Adrenal fatigue is a complicated diagnosis that is left undiagnosed and therefore untreated in a large number of people. The problem is that there are usually other health problems that are actually causing the adrenal fatigue. If this is the case, the underlying health problem needs to be treated to put the adrenal fatigue to an end. There are a lot of different problems that can cause or contribute to adrenal fatigue and only when these have been treated will you be able to heal your adrenal glands through supplements. If there are no underlying health problems, supplements may help to repair the deficiencies that are leaving you tired.

There are many supplements that will help your adrenal fatigue. Some of the more traditional treatments include 2,000 mg Vitamin C per day, 800mg Vitamin E per day, Vitamin B100 complex, 125-250mg Niacin per day, 150mg pyridoxine B6 per day, Pantothenic Acid at 1200mg per day. In addition you will want to take 500mg Proline daily.

There are also herbs that you can take that will help to relieve you of the adrenal fatigue that you are experiencing. One such herb is Cordyceps. This is a mushroom that originates in China and is known for supporting normal adrenal gland function. You may also use Siberian Ginseng as it will stimulate the adrenal glands and increase mental alertness. In addition the herb ashwagandha can be taken. This will have a calming effect on the body which will allow your body to repair the digestive and nervous system. Lastly, you can take rhodiola rosea which will help to enhance concentration capabilities. It is also known to improve mental performance and reduce stress.

There are also some hormones that may help to relieve you of adrenal fatigue. These hormones should only be taken after the proper testing has been done so you know you are taking the hormones that are actually going to benefit you, rather than choosing to take something that could actually cause other health problems.

DHEA is one of the more common hormonal adrenal fatigue supplement options. This is an adrenal hormone that the adrenal glands actually take and convert into other hormones as needed. Individuals who are deficient in this hormone will need to start with a very small dose of this hormone, such as five milligrams per day. Those who are not deficient will require doses from 10 to 25 milligrams per day.

Progesterone cream may also be very helpful in treating adrenal fatigue. Progesterone is a very important foundation for many hormones produced and used by the body. Progesterone is important for other hormones to work properly such as cortisol, DHEA, testosterone, and estrogen. This is a great cream that will help to ensure that your body is able to use all of the hormones it needs to be as happy and healthy as possible. Sometimes all it takes is using progesterone cream to get things back to functioning the way that they should. Pregnenolone is another hormone that is often used as an adrenal fatigue supplement. It is a precursor to many of the hormones that are used by and produced by the adrenal glands. It is a hormone that will support the most basic adrenal functions. The usual dose of this hormone is 25mg taken daily, and is usually best tolerated when taken in the evening hours.

As you can see, there are many adrenal fatigue supplements for you to consider taking. Everyone responds differently to these supplements so you may need to give them some time to see if they will work well for you or to see if you need to make adjustments. Eating a healthy diet, getting enough rest, removing unnecessary stressors from your life, and exercising regularly will also help you to start feeling better sooner!
