Life can be stressful sometimes. From work stresses to your social life to pets and kids to money, there are many triggers in life that can sometimes take over. These stresses can even lead to poor eating habits, poor sleeping habits, anxiety, fatigue and burnout.

There are remedies to help balance your stress, including exercise yoga, healthy eating and healthy drinks. One way to promote less stress is to support your adrenal system. This system is important for maintaining blood pressure, hormone regulation and stress regulation. The adrenal cortisol cocktail is great for supporting your system and leading a healthy, stress-free life.

So what exactly is a cortisol cocktail? Well for starters, this cocktail is actually a mocktail. It doesn’t contain any alcohol, which makes it even healthier and better for you. Here’s how to make a cortisol cocktail.

Like every human being, there are limits to what we can and can’t eat or drink. Adrenal cocktails work well for those dealing with stress and anxiety, but what about those with other health issues and conditions? If you have symptoms of adrenal fatigue, which include weight gain, extreme fatigue and insomnia, see a doctor or medical provider.

Do not treat your symptoms on your own with this drink, as you do not want to delay getting the proper medical attention and help needed. If you need to limit potassium in your diet due to health concerns or issues, it’s best to leave a few of the ingredients out or find an alternative instead. For those with diabetes, it might be best to limit your intake or steer clear of this mocktail, because of the sugar content in the juices.

Those at risk of high blood pressure may need to adjust ingredients or intake as well. Since high salt intake isn’t good for blood pressure, either leave the salt out or limit your intake of this beverage. Considering the fact that most people eat foods with a regular or high amount of salt, you definitely do not want to drink it either.
