Adrenoboost comes from a US company called Native Remedies who specialise in herbal and homoeopathic type remedies for a wide range of conditions and ailments. Many of these relate to stress and sleeping issues but you can also buy supplements for other conditions including gout and ear and eye health. Native Remedies also provide a range of supplements for pets and are based in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
Adrenoboost is a liquid supplement that you apply with a dropper into a small glass of water and drink. It is supposed to remedy the problem of adrenal fatigue, a hormonal condition which sounds serious but according to established medical opinion does not even exist. If you suffer from symptoms of general fatigue, you may be tempted to give this supplement a try but according to experts, your symptoms are probably the sign of another medical issue or simply the results of your lifestyle. If you like alternative medicine, you will probably believe in this one, but for the rest of us there is no evidence at all that Adrenoboost will work as described.
Side effects are unlikely but may include drowsiness, anxiety, muscle spasms, increases in oestrogen levels, heartburn, diarrhoea, changes to blood pressure and low potassium levels.
Adrenoboost is quite expensive. If you buy from the Natural Remedies, one 2 fl oz bottle contains 40 servings and costs $39.95. If you buy 2 items from Natural Remedies, you get the 3rd one free.
You can also buy Adrenoboost via Amazon where it is slightly cheaper but you will not be covered by the guarantee: one 2 fl oz bottle costs $33.55.
Adrenoboost is a supplement that is placed firmly within the alternative medicine bracket. If you believe in the condition of adrenal fatigue then you may believe that Adrenoboost will help remedy this problem. It does contain some powerful ingredients albeit in small servings, that can affect mood and feelings of well-being. However in such a tiny serving size we cannot see this supplement doing much or having even a noticeable effect.
There are some great points about Adrenoboost and Natural Remedies. We love that it has not been tested on animals and has been made in the USA to a high manufacturing standard. We are also impressed with the guarantee. However, unless you really believe that medicine has got it all wrong and that alternative remedies for undiscovered medical conditions are the way to go, there seems to be little point to taking this supplement.

Adrenoboost is a supplement in liquid form. It comes in a small bottle with a dropper and you simply add a drop to a small glass of water and drink.
According to the product advertising, Adrenoboost helps relieve adrenal fatigue.
The adrenal glands make hormones, including one called cortisol which kicks in when your body needs to cope with stress. Some people believe that when your adrenal gland is not working properly it fails to pump out enough hormones to support the endocrine (hormone) system.
The theory is that low-performing adrenal glands cause symptoms such as fatigue and lead to issues such as sluggish behaviour, inability to complete tasks and trouble in thinking clearly. We all experience these issues from time to time so taking a supplement to ’cure ‘these issues will be tempting for some people.
Adrenoboost contains herbal ingredients that the advertising claims will address the issue of underperforming adrenal glands. These include Eleuthero – also called as Siberian Ginseng and known as an adaptogen which means it has a generally positive effect upon mood and energy.
It contains Ashwaganda, a shrub often used in Indian medicine (Ayervardic) and is believed to calm anxiety. It is sometimes called Indian Ginseng.
Dilute drops in 1/4 cup of water.
Other ingredients include Astralagus root extract which is believed to help strengthen the immune system and ginger, the well-known culinary ingredient which may have numerous health benefits.
The final ingredient is liquorice root a well-known flavouring and herb that is often taken for weight loss. It can cause side effects in high quantities but in Chinese medicine it is believed to harmonise ingredients in a formula.
Some people take Adrenoboost in combination with another Native Remedies supplement called Thyroid Boost. The thyroid gland produces hormones that regulate the metabolism and help heart and digestive function.
Native Remedies are based in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The company has a Facebook page and seems fully engaged with customers. All supplements are manufactured in the USA in compliance with good manufacturing practice. All supplements have not been tested on animals and are free from gluten, artificial colours, flavours and preservatives.
The product advertising explains the adrenal glands.
The adrenal glands are two walnut-sized structures in the body, situated above each kidney. They consist of two separate regions: an inner adrenal medulla, surrounded by an outer adrenal cortex.
It also explains the function of the adrenal glands,
The adrenal gland function is related to the wide variety of hormones released by these structures and is mostly directed by the body’s response to stressors and the chemicals released when certain environments are presented. The adrenal gland regulates cortisol levels, which in turn stimulates conversion of proteins to carbohydrates, supports blood sugar levels and promotes glycogen storage in the liver by the adrenal glands – thereby providing the body with the energy it needs to function well.
It goes on to explain how to improve adrenal health.
Relaxation methods as well as eating a healthy, balanced diet and exercising regularly can all be of great benefit to adrenal health. Natural remedies have been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years to support the functioning of adrenal glands.
The key benefits to taking this supplement are as follows:
Although the explanations about the adrenal glands sound convincing in the advertising, real medical doctors question the concept of “adrenal fatigue”.
The symptoms such as fatigue and lethargy can usually be attributed to other causes such as an underlying medical condition diet, lifestyle and simply not getting enough sleep and there is just no evidence to support the theory of adrenal fatigue.
Adrenal fatigue is a term is used only in Alternative Medicine and the phrase was first coined by a chiropractor in 1998. It is not a real medical condition.
According to BMC Endocrine Disorders, a scientific journal which publishes research articles from endocrinologists (doctors who specialise in hormonal issues and conditions) there is no evidence that this condition even exists.
We think it is unlikely you will benefit from taking this supplement.
Although Adrenoboost is not a homoeopathic supplement and does contain some real ingredients, quantities are very low.
According to the product information serving sizes are therapeutic but this precise information is not shared with the customers. Serving size is 0.50 ml.
Some of the ingredients in Adrenoboost are known for side effects. However the serving size is extremely low so they might not be an issue. In addition customers have not mentioned them.
However, we feel that we should provide information about the possible risks of this supplement.
Potential side effects may include:
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Do not take if you have an hormonally sensitive medical condition such as breast cancer. Speak to your doctor before use if you have an underlying health condition or are taking prescription medication. Some of the ingredients may cause interactions.
There are customer reviews on the official Natural Remedies website. We also found some on Amazon.
I have been using your Adrenoboost for a few months now and although I was sceptical that it would help, I was desperate! I have worked in a highly pressurised, corporate environment for more than a decade and, being a woman, always felt the extra pressure to prove myself as well! All this stress started to catch up with me in a big way and I began to see my health deteriorate dramatically. My hair was falling out, I lost too much weight and I was always tired no matter how early I got to bed. After a few weeks of using Adrenoboost and trying to eat more healthily, I started to notice a difference: less hair in the shower, I stopped getting every cold that was going around the office and, for the first time in years, I woke up feeling refreshed in the morning. I had forgotten what that felt like! Thank you for an amazing product – it has helped me to regain control.
My homoeopath saw the product and took note of the name and brand because he thinks the formula is great! And it really helps to feel more active and at the same time relaxed.
I did not feel any effects from taking this.
Not sure if the results are working. I have not used it long enough to tell.
