A hormone supportive elixir or cocktail is a medicinal mixture that contributes to different systems in the body to support hormone balance. It’s important to note that elixirs are a bonus item, meaning if you are not eating enough and in balanced amounts, they likely will not be helpful. Food first, always!
The purpose of this adrenal cocktail is to provide support via important electrolytes sodium and potassium, which are much better absorbed together as well as whole food vitamin C. By giving your adrenals what they need to thrive, it helps your body respond properly to stress.
When we reach a point of burnout, we not only make less cortisol (leaving us fatigued), but we also have depleted mineral levels. Replenishing those minerals, especially sodium, potassium, and magnesium, promotes overall health and hormone balance in the body. Here are FOUR different adrenal cocktail recipes you can experiment with at home.
Not into juice? Coconut water is a great alternative, just make sure to add some lemon or lime. (Whole food vitamin C powder will also do the job, which you can purchase via our store!) If you want to make it a snack, you can add a tbsp or two of collagen + a few ounces of coconut cream for some protein and healthy fats. Tastes like an orange creamsicle. Sipping on the go? Use Bumble Root hydration powder instead for the same benefits.
This beverage is also helpful in supporting the liver and hormones! By giving your adrenals what they need to thrive, you’re actively building a body that’s more and more resilient to stress.
That said, if you think your adrenals could use some support, try sipping on this beverage and let us know what you think! It’s so much yummier than you’d guess. Cheers!
