What if I told you there is a cocktail that could make you feel better? Ok, it’s a MOCKTAIL, but it’s just as good. The adrenal cocktail provides energy while helping to offset stress and even infections.

So before I get into the recipe, here’s some info on adrenals + biochemistry…

The adrenal gland is located just above the kidneys and is vital for regulating different hormone levels including cortisol, aldosterone and adrenaline. These hormones control the body’s energy levels, including the ability to increase your blood pressure or heart rate to respond to stressful situations. When these hormones aren’t balanced, you can feel tired and stressed. {via}

Managing your hormone levels is so important and drinking this fabulous cocktail has so many benefits on top of managing stress.

Ok, so what’s in the Adrenal Cocktail?

There are many different recipes out there, but this is my go-to. The adrenal cocktail is a concoction of essential vitamins and minerals to support the adrenals on a foundational level. Here’s what you’ll need:

Fresh tangerine juice: Or orange. I prefer tangerine because it’s more tangy and I love the sour-sweet flavor. Tangerines and oranges have very similar mineral contents and both are packed with Vitamin C which is an essential nutrient especially in a time of stress. Vitamin C also boosts the immune system.

Full fat coconut cream: The stable, saturated fatty acids in coconut milk helps to stabilize blood sugar levels and provide your body with the energy it needs. I use Whole Foods’ 365 organic unsweetened coconut cream.

White sea salt (Fleur de Sel if we’re getting really specific)- Despite common belief, salt and iodine are essential nutrients. The minerals are essential electrolytes, which are critical in energy production, blood pressure, and adrenal function. I use Fleur de Sel salt because it is the purest form of salt you can get. It contains absolutely no gypsum or other impurities from the sea. Plus it tastes far superior than your typical sea salt.

I highly recommend drinking this adrenal cocktail in your favorite cocktail glass. Because why not?

When do drink the adrenal cocktail

The typical advice is to take the adrenal cocktail twice a day around 10 am and then at 2 or 3 pm. Why? Because these are the times when the adrenals are depleted of minerals and need to be replenished.

The recipe:

  • Fresh squeezed tangerine juice (I don’t measure)
  • 2 tbsp coconut cream
  • 1/2 tsp felur de sel

Cheers!
