When we’re stressed, our bodies burn through minerals FAST, especially sodium, potassium, and magnesium. Vitamin C gets used up too! Mineral depletion leads to burnout. That’s where the adrenal cocktail comes in handy.
What is the adrenal cocktail?
The adrenal cocktail is real food way to quickly provide your body with the nutrients it needs to support the adrenals and combat stress and mineral depletion.
We are overloaded with stress, burning through minerals, and we don’t give ourselves enough time to relax and recover. When we don’t replenish our minerals adequately, it can lead to chronic illness, as minerals set the foundation of our health.
What are the benefits of the adrenal cocktail?
This tasty drink gives your body sodium, potassium, and vitamin C, three nutrients your adrenals need to thrive.
Sodium ➡️ we lose quickly under stress.
Potassium ➡️ helps balance blood sugar.
Real food vitamin C ➡️ nourishes the adrenal glands and source of bioavailable copper.
Protein ➡️ for blood sugar balance and overall support.
It’s crucial to our health that we get adequate levels of sodium and potassium and in the right ratio. These minerals help:
👉 support digestion
👉 regulate blood sugar
👉 improve insulin sensitivity
👉 balance magnesium levels
👉 improve sleep
Signs you might be running on stress hormones:
Many of us are living in a constant state of stress and don’t even know it.
When we incorporate practices like keto and intermittent fasting, for example, it can elevate stress hormones, such as cortisol and adrenaline, in order to facilitate your body converting protein into glucose via a process called gluconeogenesis. The elevation in cortisol and adrenaline may make you feel energized and more focused at first, but the constant elevation of these hormones is recipe for disaster.
Some signs you might be running on stress hormones:
- Afternoon energy slump
- Waking up in the middle of the night (especially to use the bathroom)
- Bad PMS, intense cramps during menstrual cycle
- Trouble falling asleep at night
- Slow digestion
- Frequent urination
- Intense food cravings, especially for sweets
- Wired but tired
- Can’t relax/have to be busy
Components of the adrenal cocktail:
The body burns through potassium and sodium quickly when under stress. These two nutrients are essential to adrenal function. Vitamin C nourishes the adrenals and provides bioavailable copper. The protein in collagen keeps blood sugar balanced.
- 375 mg potassium
- 460 mg sodium
- 60 mg vitamin C
- 1 tablespoon collagen

What are the adrenals?
These tiny but mighty glands have a big job to regulate stress hormones, including cortisol and adrenaline.
When you’re chronically stressed, without adequate support (from rest & minerals), the adrenals can start to act up, leading to hormonal imbalances, HPA-axis dysfunction, fatigue & more
FOOD FIRST, ALWAYS:
The adrenal cocktail is an add-on item, meaning it is supplemental to a real-food, nutrient-dense, traditional foods diet.
If you’re eating a nutrient-poor diet, adding an adrenal cocktail isn’t going to undo all that damage alone.
The original AC was developed by Susan Blackard. The common thread is to provide a minimum of 375 mg potassium, 460 mg sodium, 60 mg whole food vitamin C.
