Stop Fighting Fatigue the Wrong Way
If you reach for a coffee or do a hard workout when you are tired, you may be hurting your ability to re-energize.
Here’s why. When you’re stressed, your adrenal glands produce cortisol, the stress hormone. After the stressful event, your cortisol crashes, and you become fatigued. By drinking caffeine or doing a tough workout, you are only further stimulating cortisol production. When our bodies have been triggering cortisol production over a long period of time, your body is no longer able to appropriately respond. This leads to extreme fatigue which we call “Adrenal Fatigue”, further described as HPA Axis Dysregulation.
Rather than coffee, you need the nutrients to help solve the root cause of fatigue. The Adrenal Drink contains natural, sugar-free electrolytes that help keep you hydrated and provide the Vitamin C, Sodium, and Potassium your adrenal glands need for proper functioning.
Stress stimulates the adrenal production of cortisol, the “fight or flight” hormone…
High cortisol levels signals the body to stop producing cortisol…
Cortisol levels drop, leading to extreme fatigue
People look to re-energize through caffeine or other physical activities, which only further impairs their cortisol function
What is the Adrenal Drink?
We can’t take credit for the Adrenal Drink recipe. The original Adrenal Drink was developed by, Susan Blackard, NP, ND, Ph.D., at the Rejuvenation Health Center (Springfield, MO) and popularized by Morley Robbins of the Root Cause Protocol. Recommended by naturopathic doctors, The Adrenal Drink delivers three key nutrients needed for strong adrenal function to keep your body and cortisol levels in check.
Whole Food Vitamin C (240mg)
The body’s highest concentration of vitamin C is in the adrenal glands, and a Vitamin C deficiency can reduce your body’s ability to appropriately respond to stress. Unlike typical supplements, The Adrenal Drink’s Whole Food Vitamin C is not processed, which allows the body to fully absorb the benefits of the vitamin. Our Vitamin C:
- Is 100% natural, free of any synthetic or corn derived ascorbic acid
- Is easy on your stomach with no acidity
- Is non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan, and kosher

Pure Mineral Salt (460mg)
Low sodium can lead to dehydration and low blood pressure, which can worsen the effects of fatigue. Real salt includes 80 trace minerals that simply don’t exist in conventional refined table salt (the white salt most of us grew up using). The body needs these key minerals, and potassium, to effectively use sodium. What’s more, our potassium helps mitigate some of sodium’s more potentially problematic effects by encouraging the kidneys to excrete excess sodium – a check and balance put in place by nature.
Potassium Bicarbonate (375mg)
Potassium is an essential mineral for regulating fluid balance and nerve signals. In the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the FDA announced the underconsumption of potassium a public health concern. We use cream of tartar for the source of potassium.

Benefits of the Adrenal Drink.*
1-3x more potassium and sodium (two key electrolytes) than leading brands. Helps fight lightheadedness.
Provides Vitamin C crucial to Adrenal Function.
Whole Food Vitamin C has shown to be more effective than synthetic vitamin C. Just google it.
Did you know most headaches during fasting come from lack of salt? This product can help you get through the stretch.
The US has become dirt poor. Did you know you’d have to eat three oranges today to get the same nutritional value as one orange 40 years ago? To operate at its best, your body — and your adrenal glands — need the essential nutrients that fruit and vegetables no longer provide.
Over the past half century, agricultural practices designed to improve fruit and vegetable size and develop pest resistance have depleted the soil and made our food less nutritious. Donald Davis’ landmark study in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition found “reliable declines” in the amount of protein, calcium, phosphorus, iron, riboflavin (vitamin B2), and vitamin C over the past half century in the United States.
Countless other studies collected by the Organic Consumers Association emphasize how much less potassium and vitamin C we get from our food today than years ago. One study from the Kushi Institute found that average vitamin C levels dropped 30 percent in the last quarter of the 20th century, while a similar study from the UK in the British Food Journal observed a 14% decline in potassium content in vegetables.
As a result, you may be missing the key vitamins and minerals you need to get through the day with balanced energy. Replenish with the Adrenal Drink.
