Adrenal Essentials with Schizandra
This supplement contains a lot of exciting ingredients with the potential for energy and brain optimization, however it makes me annoyingly drowsy. It may be that I'm highly responsive to the small amount of chamomile in it — I'm not sure. I feel calm and mellow when I take it – maybe a little too much – but I see from other reviews that some people have the opposite reaction. Regardless, I recommend it for the science behind the ingredients and the quality of Swanson's products alone. You'll just have to see how your own body reacts to it. I plan to keep taking it though, as something in it seems to be causing AWESOMELY VIVID dreams, at least for me.

Bought because I felt constantly drained. Took a week to kick in but once it did it gave me tons of energy. Got rid of the lethargy. Energy is the natural kind not the pill kind. Definite must buy if your feeling stressed and your always tired.

Can't be without it!
I purchased this product as "an ounce of prevention" due to my high stress job and exhausting daily schedule. At first, I appreciated the quality ingredients included in this product. However, I did NOT expect to feel as wonderful as I do while taking it! That has been a pleasant surprise! I feel mentally alert, physically energetic, and healthy beyond-my-years. I can definitely feel a difference when i run out of this supplement. Best of all, I feel like I'm protecting my health for the future.

I still have not determined if this product is improving adrenal function or not. I have taken for 60 days and am going to cycle out of this supplement to assess. If the product is missed by my anecdotal comparison to feeling of energy then I will have a better assessment.

Great support product
I now have something that helps. My adrenal glands seem to function better. I have more energy and overall feel better. I believe this product is helping.

all in one for great results
I was using a single herb for several months then noticed this combo. With advice of practitioner to go for a number of ingredients which I couldnt afford individually ,I found this both a real money saver and it works synergystically to offer support without overstimulating or creating a dependence.

For the last few months I have felt drained due to stress and endless demands! I knew I needed something to strengthen my adrenals and give me that extra lift! I began taking these a month ago and could tell the difference within a week! I am taking two at a time and am feeling stronger than I have in ages! I will continue to use these as part of my maintenance system!

Seriously can not live without
This will be my first review ever. I have tried a of couple name brands at a name brand health store. This product far exceeds the other products I have tried. I have started menopause and this cuts the edge and the Adrenal Support calms me. My husband is a truck driver and this supports his long hours and calms him too. Could very well save our marriage *LOL*

A staple in my cabinet
I absolutly loved this product. I finally found what my body was lacking. The combination is perfect for me. I feel like my old self again. I have physical energy, mental energy and clarity, my sleep has improved, my mood is more stable as well. I had ran out and went to a well known health food store to look for something close to get me by until I could get some more. And I tell you what, there isn't anything, I mean anything, that had the same combination for the same price here at Swansons! All I could find was supplements that had less than half of ingredients for double the price......ridiculous! I will be putting this supplement on auto order so that I never run out! Once again, Swanson Vitamins is the place to go for quality and great prices, thank you thank you thank you so much ;)!

This product helped with night sweats and hot flashes. Thought I did not need it anymore so quit using it. Symptoms came back but were back under control once I began taking it again.

My stress hormones were very high on testing, so my Dr. recommended am adrenal support. Swanson's price was much better than a compounding pharmacy the Dr. recommended. After about 15 months on the Adrenal Essentials, my stress hormones are at normal levels on testing. My Dr. and I are both happy, and I seem to be coping with stress better. I've already recommended to 2 relatives.

Well, I'm dead tired as I write this review with my energetic 3 yr old babbling beside me at 6am. For the past two nights I have not been able to get to sleep or have a deep enough sleep once I do get to sleep after taking one capsule before bed. I've taken other adrenal supports which have NEVER affected my sleep negatively. In fact, they increased the quality of my sleep. This is my first time taking the Swansons compilation. I'm looking up each ingredient to find out if any of them are energizing and according to a couple reviewers for trimethylglycine they said do NOT take it right before bed---better yet, take it early in the morning. So.... I will now take one Adrenal Support upon waking and another late morning so I can get in the daily recommended dosage. I'll review again in another couple weeks...... (I NEED SLEEEEEEEP!)

I believe since I have started adding this supplement to my daily diet, that I have more energy during the day.

I was going out to visit my Mom and asked her to order me Raw Adrenal-she did. To my delight she also ordered Adrenal Essentials. I took both 3 to 4 times a day. What can I say I have taxed my body of its energy. I require a lot of energy to help prepare her for the winter months. I noticed a big difference taking both, the Essentials was an extra boost I needed. Not taking them I feel exhausted, can't get enough sleep, wake up a lot at night. (Normally I have difficulty sleeping-feeling too tired to go to sleep and then waking up many times. Not this visit!!!)
In my 20's I was an adrenal junkie, now in my 50's I really need to support my adrenals.

I purchased these for my older daughter as she had been having problems sleeping. They worked almost immediately for her. So much so that I tried them, too. I found that I can take them for a couple of days and then have to take a day off or I will be too tired. I think I need more sleep than I allow myself sometimes. I am experiencing all kinds of perimenopausal symptoms, including sleeplessness. This product helps.

I seem to run low in energy during the summer months. First time to try this adrenal supplement was a year ago. It does help me and is effective. I do not have fatigue. I take it with a licorice supplement because my husband read that the licorice also works with the adrenal for energy.

better than more expensive brands
I have used this product for almost a year. I feel so much better. I enjoy a great deal more energy and much more able to deal with stress.

Worked for Me
I've been taking adrenal supplements for the past year and a half, trying out different brands. You can't beat the price on this one and I found it to be very effective. I take one of these with a raw adrenal supplement and vitamin B complex in the morning and I am all set for the day. I've been very happy with Swanson's brand.
