Adrenal Cocktail For Energy Support
Last updated: November 2022
The struggle with chronic fatigue that most hepatitis C patients experience is unlike much else. It can feel as though your entire body is shutting down from exhaustion, impacting your quality of life.
While it may be tempting to grab another coffee to fight the mid-day (or all-day) slump, there is a better option.
Instead of flooding our system with caffeine for the moment and then experiencing the come down later, this adrenal cocktail from <@wellnesswithlinds on Instagram is the perfect swap. Part of the struggle with chronic fatigue is that our body never can catch up. It’s working extra hard to protect us from internal and external harm, all while being depleted of essential nutrients thanks to the health implications of hepatitis C.
Spiking our energy with caffeine and then experiencing rapid letdowns only increases the stress and workload on our bodies. That’s why this fun and tasty drink is such a great addition!
Making an adrenal cocktail
All you need is:
- 6-8 ounces orange juice
- 1-2 tbsp coconut (or almond) milk
- ⅛ tsp sea salt
- ⅛ tsp cream of tartar
- Optional but highly recommended: 1 scoop of collagen peptides
Whisk everything together until well combined, pour over ice, and enjoy!
As Lindsay explains, this adrenal cocktail provides our bodies with essential vitamins and nutrients from orange juice, sea salt, and cream of tartar, while the collagen adds a boost of protein. The milk helps to make it extra creamy while adding healthy fats too!
And if nothing else, it’s super tasty and the perfect afternoon refresher. For more health and wellness tips, I highly recommend checking out Lindsay’s page @wellnesswithlinds.
