  • These Cortrex® Vegetarian Capsules by Thorne Research offer multi-faceted nutritional support to promote healthy adrenal function‚ which can support the body’s natural response to stress. Cortrex was designed to supply the body with nutrient‚ botanical and glandular nutrition to help the adrenal system do its job. This supplement is believed to help support and maintain both mental and physical stamina. And‚ as you’ve come to expect from the experts at Thorne Research‚ Cortrex is made to conform to the utmost quality standards. This supplement is free of preservatives‚ lubricants‚ diluents‚ and lubricants.

    What is Cortisol?

    Cortisol is a hormone that is naturally produced by the body‚ in the adrenal glands‚ to deal with periods of stress. It is essential for regulating blood sugar and maintaining fertility‚ immune functionality and overall mental and physical stamina. Under normal circumstances‚ the body’s adrenal glands are built to cope with the demands that life puts on us. However‚ when you’re faced with periods of chronic stress‚ your adrenal glands can become tired from all the extra work. This can eventually lead to problems that can be seen throughout the entire body.

    When the body is short on cortisol‚ you may feel tired or run down on a regular basis. You may also feel muscle weakness and joint pain‚ or you may experience unexplained weight loss.

    How Do Adrenal Glandular Tissue Extracts Help?

    Adrenal glandular tissue extracts help by supporting healthy cortisol levels and immune system function. This is because these tissue extracts play an essential role in supporting the adrenal glands. Cortrex‚ by Thorne Research‚ delivers a formulation of adrenal glandulars along with nutrients to best support your overall adrenal function and allow you to maintain optimal cortisol levels.

    In this supplement‚ whole adrenal tissue and adrenal cortex make up part of the formulation that specifically is designed to tonify the adrenal glands.

    Supporting Ingredients in Thorne Research’s Cortrex

    Licorice root (also known as Glycyrrhiza glabra) was included for its modulating effect on cortisol activity. Among all herbal remedies‚ licorice root is believed to be most effective at modulating cortisol. It has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine because practitioners believe it can enhance the potency of any cortisol that is being produced by the body by inhibiting the breakdown of cortisol in the liver.

    Whenever treating a condition in the body whereby a system seems to be malfunctioning‚ it is important to ensure the body has adequate nutrition to support such functions. This is why Thorne Research includes vitamins in its Cortrex supplement. The specific vitamins that were included were chosen because of their supportive and strengthening roles in optimizing adrenal function. Those vitamins include zinc‚ ascorbic acid (pure vitamin C)‚ thiamine (vitamin B1)‚ riboflavin‚ phosphate (vitamin B2 in its active form)‚ pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) and pyridoxal phosphate (vitamin B6 in its active form).

    Cortex

    I have used Cortex by Thorne Research for a long time. Gives me energy.


    Pros

      Gives me energy.

    Cons

      I don't like that it has beef bovine in it. I am a vegetarian and even though it says they are vegetarian capsules it has beef bovine in it. I would like some without the bovine.

    Very helpful product!

    I've been using Cortrex by Thorne Research for 3 months now because I have adrenal fatigue. My Naturalist recommended Cortrex for me. I will be on it for a few more months and then slowly decrease the amount. Very great quality and very beneficial for my health needs.

    Cortrex 60 Vegetarian Capsules

    When I crashed and was unable to move or function from Chronic Lyme Disease prior to diagnosis I tried Cortex. It was not effective at that point because well nothing was. But as I got the diagnosis and was able to begin fighting my way back it has helped with energy management. I dont know if my adrenals will ever kick in and function on their own. My doc sells this brand which I had already been taking when we started working together. I can tell if I do not take it.


    Pros

      Energy. Helps with maintaining a cycle of activity in my day.

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.
