What are the best supplement instead of cortisol for adrenal fatigue?

What are the best supplement instead of cortisol for adrenal fatigue?

People who are stressed out and having trouble coping are sometimes persuaded that it’s the adrenal’s fault. This is usually not true.

What's the best vitamin or supplement for anxiety..

Many good options: Supplements alone seldom cure anxiety but often help. There is no single "best." most americans are deficient in magnesium & this often causes anxiety- try at least 400 mg of magnesium taurate or glycinate. Many with anxiety are among the 30% who can't convert Folic Acid to its active form, so try l-5-mthf. Other b vits often help, esp. Niacinamide. Some are helped by fish oil, esp. Dha.
