High dose Vitamin C is great but you need to switch the doses up. Also like I mentioned earlier pantothenic acid is great, it’s used to form coenzyme A which is vital for energy production.
Vitamin C activates Natural Killer cell function if used in a high dose (5000 to 10,000 mg) 3 days per week only.
When used every daily, the body creates an enzyme to inactivate the Vitamin C rendering it ineffective.
I do higher dose 3x a week and low dose the other 4 days.
Vitamin E 800 IU is good, mixed tocopherols form.
Just eating clean, getting sleep, and taking the supplements above has helped me tremendously. I was at the point where I would have panic attacks from very minor amounts of stress, I’m still not great but much better. I’ve been thinking about using some Adrenal Core Extract like TJ suggests. Seems like it worked well for him and many others.
DVjorge posted these a few weeks ago, pretty cool.
Stand in front of a mirror in a darkened room (best done at night) for at least 15 seconds.
Look straight into the mirror without blinking.
Using your penlight or small flashlight, hold the light at eye level and by the side of your head pointing at your ear (see chart). About 8 inches away to avoid damaging the eye.
Slowly move the light around your head toward your nose, staying 8 inches away at all times.
Stop once the light is at a 45 degree angle to your retina. The light should NOT be pointing directly into your eye but should come in at an angle. hint: you shouldn’t feel like a deer in headlights.
Hold the light steady and count how long your pupil can hold the contraction, up to 20 seconds. Once it starts to ‘pulse’ or loses the contraction, the test is over.
Repeat on other eye.
0-4 seconds | Adrenal Exhaustion |
5-10 seconds | Adrenal Fatigue |
11-19 seconds | Adrenal Dysfunction |
Test #2: Blood Pressure Test
If your blood pressure drops when you stand up from a lying position, this almost always indicates low adrenals. This can be measured with a blood pressure gauge (a sphygmomanometer), which you can buy at a drug store. Make sure to purchase the type that doesn’t require a stethoscope to take your blood pressure.
Make sure to do this test when you are well hydrated or it could give you a false positive. Lie down quietly for about 10 minutes, then take your blood pressure (while still lying down). Then stand up and measure your blood pressure immediately upon standing. Normally blood pressure will rise 10-20mmHg from standing up. If your blood pressure drops, you likely have adrenal fatigue. The more severe the drop, the more severe the adrenal fatigue.
