Adrenal fatigue is an epidemic in our fast-paced society. If you’re tired at 3 p.m. and wide awake at 3 a.m., you might need adrenal support. Another way you can test the function of your adrenal glands is to perform the Ragland’s test. Start by taking your blood pressure lying down. Then, immediately following, stand up and take it again. The top number (systolic) should elevate by 6-10 points because you are stressing your body by standing up. If the number drops, then the adrenal gland is under functioning.
Dr. Wayne recommends supplements that have glandular support for sluggish adrenals. Standard Process has Drenamin, Adrenal Dessicated and Adrenal Complex. There is another local line of adrenal support supplements, Sedca-Ceutics, that have tested and performed well for patients. It is always a good idea to get tested to be sure a particular nutritional supplement is a good match for your body.
