I was having digestion issues for 5+ years. Food intolerances, anxiety, poor sleep, nervousness and on and on. Several doctors coule not help me. A few naturopaths susspected the digestion issues as the root of my problems. Candida was a term. I took all those antifungals and probiotics, spend several houndred Euros an them but nothing worked. I actually got worse. Then i finally met a naturopath who talked about the term 'adrenal fatigue'. I had not heard about that before. So she suggested to run some test and i was diagnosed with mild adrenal fatigue. First she gave me some homeopathic tinctures. They helped a bit but they were too weak. Then the said I coule try some adrenal extract and proposed this product. After taking this for 2 weeks I saw improvement in my digestion I had not seen since getting ill. Then I knew all my problems were caused by adrenal fatigue. This was like the Aha moment. Beside taking a pill I chamged my lifestyle. So do not expect to live a stress life and get a pill to fix all your issued. That will not work. Good sleep being the most important thing. I still take this now after having started 2 months ago. I take it in conjunction with a herbal formula called adrenal optimizer. I can eat almost everything now without trouble. I have more energy and my body temperature is warm again. But if I have stressfull days in a row, sleep bad and do not eat right I can feel symptoms coming back. So watch your lifestyle. This pill is just a support.

First of all, I don't like the term "Adrenal Fatigue" because it can mean anything from high cortisol to low cortisol or high DHEA and high cortisol etc. I prefer the word "Hypoadrenia". If you have mild hypoadrenia (slighly low cortisol or low morning cortisol and high afternoon cortisol) this supplement may do wonders for you. But if you have advanced hypoadrenia (very low cortisol all day long), watch out of adrenal cortex supplements! You can try them but be careful. I have CFS with advanced hypoadrenia and every Adrenal Cortex supplement I have tried, act as a stimulant for first 1-2 days and also gives me headache. Third day they make me more fatigued than ever.

Took the 60 caps as directed and did not see any benefits or effects from this supplement on my adrenal health or general well being.

I decided to trial using these vitamins and realised that they were not for me but I have had success with other Thorne vitamins so I would recommend the brand. The adrenal cortex caps may suit someone else
