Topics Discussed in this Episode:
- The 3 basic components of the Morning Adrenal Cocktail and how they benefit the adrenals
- The two ways you can make the adrenal cocktail
- You can start your day with the Morning Adrenal Cocktail. But you might need it two or three times a day depending on what’s going on with your adrenals, how you’re feeling, and the symptoms you might be having.
- Around 3 p.m. is often when a lot of people get that cortisol dip. When your cortisol drops at that time of day, that’s when you start to feel very tired and sluggish. It’s an opportune time to take your adrenal supplementation and your adrenal cocktail.
- The 3 basic components of the Morning Adrenal Cocktail are vitamin C, salt, and potassium.
- It’s really important that you get enough sodium in your diet. The more stressed we are, the more sodium we end up losing from our cells. And that causes our cells to dump out potassium as well.
- That delicate balance of sodium and potassium affects the symptoms that we experience with adrenal fatigue.
- Make the Morning Adrenal Cocktail:
The key when making this drink is to make sure you have all three components- vitamin C + salt + potassium. If your trace minerals does not contain potassium, make sure to add in coconut water or find an electrolyte powder or trace mineral liquid that contains potassium.
250-500ml of water
1 packet of ENER-C sugar free Orange
1/2 tsp trace minerals
1/3 cup coconut water (optional - use if your trace minerals does not contain potassium)
1/4-1/3 cup of fresh-pressed orange juice
1/2 tsp sea salt or trace minerals
1/3 cup coconut water
“Less sodium in the system means that there’s more stress in the system ultimately.”
“[The Morning Adrenal Cocktail] really does work wonders. Make sure to get in that sodium-potassium balance. It is so key.”
