The Adrenal Cocktail - Three Ingredients Could Help You

adrenal cocktail

Adrenal Cocktail - Himalayan Salt, Orange Juice and Cream of Tartar

Do you find yourself dragging in the morning, or even experiencing that "afternoon" brick wall when you suddenly feel fatigued and worn out? Or perhaps you find yourself feeling like you are dragging during the day, but at night, your energy seems to suddenly return when you ought to be sleeping?

You could be suffering from adrenal fatigue and/or the "cortisol switch," or as sometimes referred to as the cortisol flip. Often, people who experience the cortisol switch can experience high levels of energy which then suddenly decrease and the feeling of "hitting the wall" occurs. Sometimes, it is accompanied by anxiety and other negative symptoms.

What can you do if this frequently occurs to you? One of the first thing is to check your diet! While caffeine may initially help with a short time burst, it can contribute to the cortisol switch, almost like coming down fast after the caffeine wears off, quickly. Reducing caffeine and focusing on high nutrition foods while eliminating those high in sucrose have enabled many people to battle the fatigue and anxiety.

Another tool that there is a great deal of anecdotal evidence for is to start drinking the "adrenal cocktail." Originally credited to Dr. Larry Wilson, MD (a specialist in adrenal fatigue syndrome), this cocktail consisting of three simple ingredients, have helped change many people's lives. What is the adrenal cocktail?

The ingredients are quite simple:

4 ounces of orange juice
1/4 teaspoon Himalayan salt
1/4 teaspoon Cream of Tartar

Mix well and drink on an empty stomach, either an hour before or after a meal, twice a day.

Often, we need sodium as well as the trace minerals that Himalayan salt provides and combined with Cream of Tartar (which is Potassium bitartrate) and orange juice, provides the adrenals with essential nutrients to combat stress, increase energy levels, and can help lift us back up over that wall instead of just hitting it head on.

Some of the benefits that have been reported by those who have used The Adrenal Cocktail are nothing short of amazing. While reducing fatigue is a major benefit that has been reported, it has also helped many who have suffered with anxiety, with some expressing amazement that within 15 to 20 minutes, signs of anxiety totally disappear.

Adrenal fatigue can also be a cause for panic attacks, insomnia, water retention and many other symptoms that sometimes are not recognized immediately as being a sign of a disorder with the adrenals that are not being supported nutritionally.

Often, people who complain of racing thoughts or a mind that won't stop thinking at night (which causes their insomnia), discover that taking the Adrenal Cocktail twice a day and then taking a magnesium supplement at night before going to bed provides them with relief. It may take a week or more to see results, however. It is no surprise as most people on a processed food diet that does not include much attention to ensuring a good balance of minerals, are lacking in a good mineral balance.

If you suffer from symptoms of insomnia, anxiety, panic attacks and other symptoms which may be a sign of adrenal fatigue, consider this cocktail and let us know your results in the comments below!

    Wow I so am going to try this and if it works, I will let you know. I wonder if this is my fatigue problem over all these years and such a simple recipe could have been helping me out.

    • admin on July 2, 2015 at 10:30 pm

      Yes, do let us know how the adrenal cocktail works for you, Sheila. We’ve had reports from some that it made amazing changes in energy levels and the simple recipe has worked wonders for some.

      • Sheila McMurray on July 27, 2015 at 3:05 pm

        Well.. let me tell you! I am amazed! I have been doing this adrenal cocktail as well as supplementing with magnesium citrate, and the results have been.. well.. I do so wish I had heard of this years ago!!!!!!

        It is night and day between how I felt before and now. I noticed the change about the second day and it only got better and better.

        Thank you so very much for this information. I feel like I have a new life. I have been born again!

    I have read that the coconut water can be had instead of orange juice for adrenal cocktail. Know anything about this, Admin?

    • Rebecca on September 18, 2019 at 2:45 pm

      Yes it can be used.

  3. Christina on December 2, 2015 at 6:49 pm

    I’d also like to know about substituting orange juice with coconut water. What amount of coconut water would equal the proposed amount of orange juice? Many thanks.

    • Jody on April 19, 2018 at 6:11 pm

      I use 8oz of coconut water, 1/4 tsp whole food vit c powder and 1/4 tsp Celtic sea salt. The coconut water has the right amount of potassium but not enough vitamin C

  4. Lisa on August 24, 2016 at 2:30 pm

    Hi, is there any problem with not taking it on an empty stomach? Or does it just reduce effectiveness?

  5. Julie Carlisle on October 31, 2016 at 12:54 pm

    I had severe burnout a year ago and my adrenals and thyroid gland were badly affected. I also, as a result of this, was battling terribly with anxiety. I have been battling for a year to get on top of things and have been taking a combination of herbal and “normal” meds. Was feeling on top of things and then crashed again a week ago. This morning I decided to try the adrenal cocktail. I am blown away by its effectiveness!! Within half an hour of drinking it, my shakiness went and I have been able to sit and calmly work for the whole day. I’m still a bit sleepy, and my mouth was a bit dry but I’m feeling so much better. I would LOVE to understand how this works on the adrenals, anxiety levels, etc. Are you able to explain? Thank you

  6. Amanda on February 22, 2017 at 1:36 am

    Going to try this and hope that it works for me. I stay up all night because i cant turn my brain off then end up sleeping all day. even when i am woke its like i live in a fog.

    • Sue on October 27, 2021 at 11:49 am

      Might be Fibromyalgia

  7. Missy B on June 21, 2017 at 5:24 pm

    if you are up at 3am for hours no matter what time you fall asleep, what time of day is this cocktail suppose to be taken? Does it help with sleep if taken at 3am?

  8. marta on June 22, 2017 at 5:11 pm

    OK, I run into this recipe by luck in one of those sleepless mornings at 3 am, decided to give it a try. It’s been less than a week but I have had much better sleep. Last night I went to bed by 10 pm and woke up this morning at 5:30 aM!!! Yayyy!! 7.5 hours uninterrupted. I can appreciate a good’s night of sleep.
    I used to be a good sleeper but I messed my cycadian rhythm after going into intermitent fasting and super strict ketogenic diet. Tried Dr. Berg supplements, Maria Emmerich’s and none were really helping. While I have lost some weight, then I wasn’t losing for lack of sleep. May this be the remedy. I take it twice a day, once at 3 pm and then before bedtime. Thanks for posting

    • admin on June 22, 2017 at 5:55 pm

      Glad to hear it’s been working for you, Marta! It’s an amazing little recipe for some people and has certainly changed some lives for the better!

    • Keri on August 27, 2017 at 3:08 am

      I have been doing the intermintent fasting for 2 weeks…and having horrible sleeping issues…I’m thinking my circadian rhythm…did you stay on keto? What else helped! Thanks…

  9. Sharon on June 23, 2017 at 9:20 am

    I heard half lemon and water

  10. Cathy on June 30, 2017 at 3:20 pm

    I have tried this cocktail for a few days and have had severe diarrhea. I have been following the Ketogenic diet and haven’t really had any sugar so I’m wondering if the orange juice is causing this reaction. Any thoughts

  11. Dory on August 7, 2017 at 1:21 am

    This works for me, I have woken up at 3 a.m. and stay awake for about 2 hours for years. First night and every night since drinking this about a half hours before bed, I sleep 8 hours. It’s so unbelievable when I wake up!!!!! I only drink this once a day, but, I may try in the afternoon as well. I am so grateful for the formula!!! Thank you for sharing!

  12. Angie on September 21, 2017 at 10:54 pm

    I’m doing this and it’s my 2nd day has one lost weight on this

  13. George Robinson on November 5, 2017 at 2:52 pm

    Greetings from Northern Ireland!

    This cocktail – does it have to be the pink salt? What about good old sea salt? Would that not work just as well, do you think?

    • admin on November 5, 2017 at 3:37 pm

      Hello again George,

      You bring up a good point. Many people are quite taken with the “pink” or Himalayan salt – personally, we think any type of salt will do for the Adrenal cocktail, and to see benefits almost immediately. That Irish sea salt should be just fine! 🙂

    • Nicole on March 18, 2018 at 4:04 pm

      No, not any bleached sea salt or table salt. Real Salt, like Redmond or Celtic Gray. I mix the two together. Or pink Himalayan Salt.

  14. Chris on January 9, 2018 at 11:13 am

    I have acid reflux. Could I swap the orange juice for anything else?

    • Rebecca Hardin on August 31, 2018 at 1:28 am


  15. Carolyn on January 4, 2019 at 9:48 pm

    I have a friend who’s daughter is going through adverse effects from drug use of ICE.
    She has stopped the drug use but her sleep is broken and most nights can not sleep. And has tremendous anxiety.
    Do you think this could help my friends daughter.
    Also could you please explain how this works to help the cortisol levels normalise and help heal adrenals???
    Many thanks,

  16. Mark L Heatherly on June 14, 2019 at 8:30 am

    I am 58 years old and have worked in construction all of my life. I was doing sales for a few months and then began doing the physical work again suddenly in the midst of the summer heat. I was embarrassingly low on energy, dehydrated and cramping very badly so that I could not get much done. A friend told me about this adrenal shot so I gave it a try. The difference was simply amazing. The very first day I tried it I felt back to my normal self!

  17. Cressida Elias on October 14, 2019 at 12:00 pm

    I think this will help some people who are low in potassium and sodium – it can kick start the adrenals but its just a stimulant – not really balancing the body chemistry.

    • Love2ClearClouds on October 11, 2020 at 10:07 am

      Cressida, if it doesn’t balance body chemistry and is only a stimulant, what is your source(s) for this info and what is the suggestion for body balance?

      When you make a comment like you did, you should complete your statement by providing source(s) and what is suggested to balance body chemistry rather than leaving it as you did.

  18. Casey on October 11, 2022 at 12:21 pm

    The first two times I have taken this mixture I have gotten a slight headache. It almost feels like a sinus headache. I say that because when I get a sinus headache I can smell it in my sinuses. It also makes my heart beat harder. Normal??

    • admin on October 11, 2022 at 12:36 pm

      That is interesting that you have that reaction. I’ve not heard of such a thing before, but perhaps your body reacts to potassium for some reason. Might be something to talk to a doctor about.
