This is Part 2 of a two-part post.  In Part 1, we covered symptoms of adrenal fatigue, lifestyle factors affecting it, and a quick 5 minute test that you can do to determine if your weakness is adrenal related.  If you missed Part 1, please use the series link above to read this valuable info.

Both Supplements and Lifestyle changes are necessary to repair adrenal function and recover from adrenal fatigue.

These supplement suggestions are from a combination of health sites. See the footnotes below.

Supplements-

Vitamin B-5 (Pantothenic Acid) – B5 is a key building block for the adrenals. 1500 mg a day can restock adrenal reserves and alleviate symptoms.
Licorice Root – This prevents the body from breaking down the adrenal hormones too quickly.
Vitamin C with bioflavonoids – 2,000-4,000 mg/day sustained release
Vitamin # with tocopherols –  800 IU’s a day
Magnesium Citrate – 400-1200 mg in the powdered form
Proline – 500 mg daily to rebuild weak connective tissues. There is a correlation between weak connective tissues and adrenal insufficiency.
Dessicated Adrenal Gland – This is extremely important to adrenal repair as it provides raw materials to rebuild as well as contains adrenal hormones.
Sea Salt – 1/8  to 1/2 t. in 8 oz of water upon rising and at least a half-hour before you have the lowest energy of the day. (5)

Dr. Wilson of Adrenal Fatigue.org encourages taking control of your life:

Optimal adrenal health is one of the major keys to the enjoyment of life. If you have adrenal fatigue, you can fully live life again by making the necessary lifestyle and dietary changes to treat your disorder. (6)

Physicians from WomentoWomen.com make a similar beneficial challenge:

Remember, you may feel too tired to make changes now, but by moving forward in stages, you’ll build the strength you need to stay with it. You will love how you feel when you do! (7)

Here are Lifestyle Changes recommended by Dr. Wilson and others as footnoted.

  • Sleeping until 9 a.m. as often as possible
  • Eat breakfast within 1 hour of waking, no later than 10 am and lunch between 11-noon. (9)
  • Avoid eating fruit at breakfast.  See list of fruits to be avoided by those with adrenal fatigue in footnote (10).
  • Lying down during your work breaks around 10 am and between 3-5 pm.
  • Eat a nutritious snack between 2-3 pm to get you through the natural dip in cortisol around 3-4 pm (9)
