Our Members Asked:
What's really in supplements for "adrenal support" and "adrenal fatigue"? Do they work and are they safe?
Answer:Supplements promoted to increase energy, reduce stress and other symptoms caused by "adrenal fatigue" may contain a variety of ingredients, including vitamins and minerals, herbs (such as ashwagandha, ginseng, holy basil, rhodiola, and schisandra), and/or dehydrated adrenal gland tissue from animals (typically from bovine source, i.e., cows). While some of these ingredients have individually been shown to reduce fatigue or symptoms of stress, there is currently little evidence that "adrenal support formulas" do the same or improve adrenal gland function. Additionally, an analysis of popular adrenal support supplements on the market found that all contained small amounts of thyroid and steroid hormones, which could potentially cause adverse effects or interfere with blood test results.
