If you’re like most people, you’re living a busy life. It can be difficult to get a full night’s sleep and schedule time for relaxation when you only have 24 hours in a day.
Many people fall into the trap of using caffeine or sugary foods to compensate for poor lifestyle habits. However, not getting adequate sleep and not eating a balanced diet can be stressful on your adrenal glands.
Daily Adrenal Support includes a blend of nine research-backed ingredients designed to help you increase natural energy levels and reduce your stress. Here’s what we’ve included:
Keep reading to find out how you can best use Daily Adrenal Support to increase your energy levels, and help take the stress off your adrenal glands.
What Is the Best Way to Take Daily Adrenal Support?
We recommend that you take Daily Adrenal Support once or twice per day with a meal. If you take two servings per day, it’s a good idea to take one serving in the morning and one in the evening about 12 hours apart.
For best results, it’s also a good idea to aim for a minimum of seven hours of sleep per night when taking Daily Adrenal Support. Sleeping fewer than seven hours per night regularly is linked to an increased risk of developing high blood pressure, heart disease, strokes, weight gain, and depression.1 Not getting adequate sleep may also reduce the efficiency of anyAdrenal Support. Supplements are designed to aid your already healthy lifestyle but shouldn’t be a replacement for healthy habits.
When Is the Best Time to Take Daily Adrenal Support?
Most of the ingredients in Daily Adrenal Support are designed to promote relaxation and calmness. You may want to take it in the morning to help you start your day feeling relaxed. Some people may feel drowsy after taking Ashwagandha. If you notice feelings of drowsiness, you may want to take Daily Adrenal Support in the evening instead.
Should You Take Daily Adrenal Support with Food?
We recommend taking Daily Adrenal Support with a meal. If you’re taking it before bed, it’s a good idea to take it with a small snack. Some herbs may irritate your stomach if you haven’t eaten in a while, so making sure you have food in your stomach may help prevent gastric distress. We also recommend taking it at a time when you’re not taking any other herbal supplements or medications.
Should You Take Daily Adrenal Support with Water, Coffee, or Smoothies?
As we mentioned, we recommend taking Daily Adrenal Support with food. If you take it with water, you may also want to also eat a small snack.
Taking Daily Adrenal Support with a smoothie filled with protein, vegetables, and fruit is a great way to further reduce stress. When your stress hormone levels are elevated, your body increases protein breakdown.5 Eating high-protein foods can replace the protein your body breaks down. Most fruits and vegetables are high in antioxidants, which help protect your body from cellular damage.
We don’t recommend taking Daily Adrenal Support with coffee or other caffeinated foods or beverages. Caffeine stimulates the release of cortisol from your adrenal glands, which is counterproductive to your recovery.
Does Anything Happen If I Take Daily Adrenal Support with a Carbonated Beverage?
There’s no evidence to suggest that carbonated beverages will have a negative effect on this supplement.
However, there’s some evidence suggesting that regular soda consumption may negatively affect your bone density, but more research is needed.6 Many carbonated beverages are also filled with sugar or artificial sweeteners that may have negative effects on your health. You may want to avoid most carbonated drinks to lower your intake of these harmful substances.
Does Daily Adrenal Support Help You Sleep?
Daily Adrenal Support makes a great sleep aid if you take it before bed. Several of its key ingredients have research to back their ability to reduce anxiety and improve sleep quality.
Research shows that the active ingredient in Ashwagandha, triethylene glycol, may help you fall asleep quicker.2 Ashwagandha may also help alleviate symptoms of insomnia and improve your sleep quality.
Holy basil may help you reduce anxiety, which is a common cause of insomnia. One review of studies found adults who took Holy basil had lower stress and anxiety levels compared to a control.3 The study also found people with psychosomatic problems also had a 31.6%-39% reduction of stress symptoms.
Panax ginseng may also have the ability to reduce anxiety and improve sleep by decreasing stress hormone levels.4
What Is the Best Way to Store Daily Adrenal Support?
You can store Daily Adrenal Support at room temperature. It’s best to keep it somewhere dry and out of direct light. It’s also a good idea to keep it away from heat sources.
Can I Still Consume Caffeinated Drinks or Foods while Taking Daily Adrenal Support?
We recommend minimizing your caffeine intake. Caffeine causes your adrenal glands to release the hormones cortisol and epinephrine. If you’re already living a busy lifestyle, your body is likely already producing a large amount of these hormones.
If you already consume a lot of caffeine daily, completely cutting out caffeine from your diet might cause symptoms of caffeine withdrawal such as headaches, trouble concentrating, or fatigue.7 It may be a good idea to slowly wean down your caffeine intake to reduce withdrawal symptoms.
You may also want to avoid caffeine after mid-afternoon. Consuming caffeine later in the day may interfere with your ability to fall asleep.
What Other Supplements Should I Take with Daily Adrenal Support?
Research shows that probiotics have immune-boosting benefits8. Taking a probiotic such as Daily Probiotic with Daily Adrenal Support may help increase your energy levels by reducing your chances of getting sick.
Another great type of supplement to take with Daily Adrenal Support is omega 3s. Increasing your intake of the type of omega 3 fatty acid called docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) may increase your body’s production of the hormone melatonin. (9)
Melatonin is the key hormone responsible for regulating your sleep-wake cycles.
A turmeric supplement such as Daily Turmeric may also help you decrease your stress levels. Research shows turmeric consumption may decrease anxiety levels and improve your body’s ability to heal itself. (10)
Can You Use Daily Adrenal Support as a Pre-Workout Supplement?
Many pre-workouts use caffeine to make you feel more energized. Daily Adrenal Support does not include caffeine, but increases your energy by reducing stress on your body. Taking Daily Adrenal Support before a workout may help reduce feelings of anxiety and stress while at the gym. You may feel more energetic during your workout if you feel more relaxed.
However, if you find that you feel drowsy after taking Daily Adrenal Support, you may want to take it in the evening before going to bed instead of before your workout.
Who Shouldn’t Take Daily Adrenal Support?
Some of the ingredients in Daily Adrenal Support aren’t suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women, people with diabetes, heart conditions, thyroid conditions, blood clotting disorders or those who have recently had surgery.
If you have any of these conditions or any other medical conditions, it's a good idea to talk to your doctor before taking Daily Adrenal Support or any other supplement.
How Do I Know If My Adrenal Glands Are Recovering?
One of the best ways to know if your adrenal glands are recovering is to monitor your body daily. You can keep a journal describing your energy levels, sleep quality, and mental condition each day and look back to see if they improve over time.
How stressed do you feel?
How many hours of sleep are you getting per night?

Do you have trouble falling asleep?
Do you have daily sugar cravings?
How much caffeine do you consume per day?
Have you gained or lost weight recently without changing your habits?
