UPDATE: This page was originally posted in 2013. Since then, I’ve learned that not only is this “Adrenal Cocktail” recipe fantastic for adrenal function, it’s one of the critical steps of The Root Cause Protocol. A votré sante! -Morley Robbins, Jan 11, 2018


Adrenal “Cocktail”

(Take 1-2 times/day – an hour before or after food!)

Outlined below is a mineral mixture that one of our colleague’s, Susan Blackard, NP, ND, PhD, has developed for her clients at the Rejuvenation Health Center (Springfield, MO) to take to nourish their adrenals when in need of a lift.

What is important is that this mixture should be taken at least once or twice/day, and please be sure that it is taken away from food to have the optimal benefit.

  • 4 Oz. of Orange Juice – fresh squeezed is best, but not essential (the Vitamin-C Complex makes sure that the minerals noted below get to the Liver to then nourish the Adrenals)
  • 1/4 tsp of Cream of Tartar (this is an excellent source of Potassium or you can use Potassium Bicarbonate)
  • 1/4 tsp of fresh ground Real Salt or Sea Salt (this is an excellent source of Sodium & 90+ other minerals)

What we recommend is that our clients prepare a Thermos at the start of the day with enough liquid for two (2) applications (i.e. at least 8 Oz. of fresh-squeezed Orange Juice) and drink it mid-morning (~10am), as well as mid-afternoon (~2pm). In addition, any time that you are feeling particularly anxious it would be advisable to prepare another mixture and take it.

PS – A pre-mixed version of this Adrenal Cocktail recipe is now available.
