I know its recommended for adrenals - does anyone know what effect it can have on cortisol levels? I am awaiting my results from adrenal stress profile test but have a feeling my cortisol levels are too low. Can B5 raise cortisol or does it lower it? Maybe it balances cortisol? Any info. appreciated.
I take 1,500 to 2,000 per day but never more than 500 mg at a time because it makes me a little anxious. I have no clue how much cortisol each pill contains or if it even works that way but I quit the isocorts and hydrocortisone about a month ago. I still do a hydrocortisone shot every few weeks at only 2.5mg, if that. I am feeling better on the B5, Vit. C, and B-Complex. I think the liver stuff is really helping Ladywear! It was $27 online. It's biotics and it's called ultravir-x. It takes around a month and can sometimes make you feel more tired but each week you should feel better and better if you think you have a sick liver. I am taking mine for a virus. I am also taking the orenda immune which is $60! I couldn't do the adrenal glandulars and cortisol, they made me feel like crap. I think slowly re-building them w/vitamins is working for me but I may have had to do the other things before to get to this point. I am very up and down, good days and bad days!
I am so glad the liver stuff is helping you. Honestly the liver supplement is the only thing that has helped me so far. I think I will try the pantothenic acid - B3 but I am glad you mentioned that too much could make you feel anxious. Dont you find if you over-do or overstimulate the adrenal supplements you feel this way? I tried some vitamin B complex the other day and felt so anxious/anxiety. I wondered if maybe they were too much for me or overstimulate my adrenals. I dont know - its hard to know whats going on but vitamins c and magnesium really help me. I havent tried the hydrocortisone - I'm a bit frightened of how I might react. That seems a better approach using vitamins and minerals. I am trying to get some of yeast down with antifungals to see if that will help my adrenals but again I am worried over stressing them (so just doing everything very slowly). thanks for the info.
are you using ultra vir-x for your liver?
i cant find it from aus search on google and i not the ingredients contain herbal compounds so im not sure it will get through our strict customs here
i will keep looking
