Adrenal Cortex Vegetarian Capsules by Thorne Research help the body by
providing pure adrenal cortex tissue to support healthy adrenal function. This
can help maintain the body’s normal stress and immune responses, especially if
they have been impaired.
As you would expect from any other Thorne Research product, this Adrenal
Cortex supplement is made to comply with the highest quality standards. As with
Thorne Research’s many other products, Adrenal Cortex does not contain any
lubricants, diluents, preservatives or magnesium stearate.
What is the adrenal cortex?
The adrenal cortex produces a special group of hormones known as
corticosteroids. These corticosteroids are comprised of mineralocorticoids,
17-ketosteroids and glucocorticoids, which are necessary for the body to perform
key homeostatic processes. Mineralocorticoids work to maintain the optimal
electrolyte balance in addition to maintaining already normal blood pressure
levels. 17-ketosteroids work in concert with the sex hormones that are produced
by your adrenal glands, and glucocorticoids are used for metabolizing glucose
and for the body’s natural immune response.
The body is designed to handle the normal stresses of day-to-day life, but
these days, too many people are chronically over-stressed. Work demands and
family life take their toll on your adrenal system, and then their effects are
compounded by poor dietary habits, such as excess caffeine consumption and
eating refined sugars, and poor lifestyle choices, such as lack of exercise and
inadequate time for rest. When this occurs, as it often does, the adrenal glands
are forced to work overtime and they end up becoming fatigued.
Why supplement with Adrenal Cortex by Thorne Research?
Fatigued adrenal glands do not function properly, which means that they will
not produce adequate levels of cortisol to deal with stress. If your body isn’t
producing enough cortisol, you will start to experience undesirable symptoms,
such as lack of energy, poor concentration, muscle fatigue, joint pain and sleep
disturbances, among other possible symptoms.
Adrenal cortex tissue extracts, such as those included in Adrenal Cortex by
Thorne Research, play a valuable supporting role in maintaining your overall
adrenal health, which in turn can help your immune system function properly and
leave you feeling more energized. Glandulars also work to help support healthy
cortisol levels, which can help relieve fatigue and joint or muscle pain.
Adrenal cortex by Thorne Research was specifically designed to provide you
with adrenal cortex tissue, which can help support normal adrenal function. If
you think your adrenal system may be malfunctioning, talk to your doctor about
getting tested for low cortisol levels. This is especially crucial for people
who are already experiencing the classic symptoms of overtaxed adrenal glands
listed above. The sooner you get yourself on a treatment program, such as the
natural support provided by adrenal cortex, the sooner you can start feeling

Vegetarian title is misleading
By Lily from Baltimore, MD on March 25, 2012
I take the Iso-Cort as I am a vegetarian and Adrenal Cortex by Thorne is made from dried bovine adrenal glands. The use of the word "Vegetarian" in the title is completely misleading; it refers only to the non-gelatin capsule used and not the ingredients inside the capsule.
By Rebecca Samanci from Burlington, VT on August 8, 2011
I can't say if Adrenal Cortex 60 Vegetarian Capsules by Thorne Research works better than other brands, but in general, I could not manage at all without Adrenal Cortex. It keeps me from debilitating fatigue. The price seems terribly reasonable compared to the enormous benefit. Since my memory is somewhat shot, I don't know if Adrenal Cortex 60 Vegetarian Capsules by Thorne Research is cheaper than the Nutricology brand, but at $10.50 and it works like the dickens, I am sticking with it.

Amazing supplement for my autistic son!
By Isaac's Mom from Indiana on March 17, 2011
My 6 year old son has transition issues and anxiety causes him to have meltdowns. His Autism doctor suggested this product to help support adrenal gland function since many autistic kids have low functioning adrenal glands. Not only has it helped with his behavior and transitioning at school, he has been saying many more words! I can't explain the burst in language other than he isn't as stressed out and he can verbalize things easier now. I had to quit giving his 3rd dose close to bedtime because it caused him to not sleep well, so I give it to him in the morning and afternoon and he sleeps great!
Price and quality!
nothing besides the yucky smell, but I have to break open the capsule and mix with applesauce to give to my son. Anyone who can swallow pills probably won't notice a smell
