Adrenal Cortex supplements safe?

Posted by Joe on May 04, 2002 at 00:05:36:

Are taking adrenal supplements safe?
I recently read a post on another acne message board about taking adrenal capsules for acne.
Bovine is the key ingredient, it REALLY stops alot of the oil.
The bottle says "for adrenal support"
Is this safe to use while practicing SR ?
It's a supplement and I bought it a GNC.
This really works great, am I jepordizing my health ?

It's bovine that's the key ingredient but bovine adrenal gland extract. From what I know, it's safe... if you take it appropriately (whatever that means). Maybe the following can help you find answers to your questions:

- https://www.dcnutrition.com/Products/Detail.CFM?RecordNumber=174

Would you describe its effects (besides stopping the oil) on you? Related to skin and not.



Correction: meant to say "It's NOT bovine that's..." nmi

Skin wise the only thing it does is just SLOW the oil production down by about 85% almost instantly.
Well, overnight....
Umm..... I have a little more energy, and can concentrate better. That's about it.
The bottles ingredients/directions say:

--Directions: take two capsules daily with meals.
Adrenal (bovine) 340mg
proprietary blend 435 mg
Siberian ginseng
licorice root
gotu kola
clove

From what you know is this dosage a strong or weak one?

No, I don't know. I am going to take a product pointed to by one of links I gave you. I will base my usage of it on recommendations of a doctor who runs that web site.

Thanks, Joe.

I believe it to be safe. These products have been used for at least 50 years, in this country, and there have been no reports of harm to anyone yet.

However, I appreciate your note in 2 other ways: 1. I was unaware of the effect and 2. It just justifies what I have been saying for years that acne is directly related to stress hormones altered by the chronic stress-effect storage in the hypothalamus.

HOWEVER, that being the case, my prediction is that this approach will not last more than a few years (if that long). It will prove to be just a more sophisticated, and safer, "tape over the warning light".

Let us know how you do.

Walt

Yeah I fully understand and agree about the temporary part,
But wouldn't this be a GREAT way to keep the acne at bay while at the same time i'm practicing SR to empty my hypothalamic storage to return balance to my internal matrix?

Then I could taper off.


It seems to me easier to practice SR when you have more motivation because your face doesn't look as bad.


To me it's prudent to suppress the opposing army while at the same time giving your tomcats correct corrdinates to annialate the opposition once and for all.

I agree, Joe.

No problemo. I thought I said that in my last response. If not, I apologize.
