adrenal extract supplement, does anyone have experience with it?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I guess the adrenals are involved in a lot of the stress and things we are going through here. Now someone advised my to buy and take Nutr-meds Adrenal cortex. Has anyone here used this, or similar stuff? I am a bit scared of taking hormonal supplements... might just mess things up more. Anyone have thoughst on this?

low dose naltrexone: 3 mg. daily

Taurine 3 x 500 mg.

Amino acids complex

Ashwaganda, 2 x 450 mg.

If you have anxiety, panic, agitation, nervousness, or disrupted sleep, do not take anything to stimulate the adrenals. They are already working overtime.


Much of what you read about alternative treatments will not apply if you are suffering from withdrawal. Withdrawal syndrome makes your nervous system hypersensitive. Be very cautious about herbs and supplements of any type.
