  • 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).

    Prescribed by my doctor

    Cortrex by Thorne Research was prescribed by my doctor to help my low cortisol levels. I think it has helped. I have a real problem with fatigue and using this along with my Thyroid medicine I have seen improvements.


    Pros


    Cons

      I hate having to take a big vitamin everyday. I hope they come out with a gummy version, but I doubt that will be anytime soon.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    TR 1246 cortrex

    I have been taking Cortrex for over 3 weeks now. I am not as moody, more energy, and I feel more in control of everything that I do. I am really glad that I found Pure Formulas to buy this product. It does work.


    Pros

      It is easy to swallow with water or sometimes with my cup of coffee. I can take with me to work in my little pill box. It is a very good supplement.

    Cons

    Pros

      My energy is steady.

    Cons

      I would like to be able to purchase it in a larger quantity.

    I received your Thorne Research Cortrex in 3 days in the mail. I took one capsule when I opened the package and another one just before bedtime. After 3 days of taking two capsules a day I started feeling more energetic, not so moody, and more calm. Thanks, PureFormulas for your great products.


    Pros

      The capsules are easy to swallow and they are all natural.

    Cons

    New to Cortrex

    My naturopath prescribed Cortrex by Thorne Research in early November. I have had no side effects, but cannot say if it has helped. As it is a chemical that deals with the endocrine system, this may take a while to show any real effect.


    Pros

      Easy to take. Not terribly expensive.

    Cons

      Nothing.

    Great product

    I have been taking them since May for my adrenal fatigue. I only take one a day, unlike someone else who stated they take two, one in the afternoon when they start to crash. I know if I take two in the morning I'm tired but haven't tried splitting it up. Usually buy them at my doctors office, first time ordering them on line, but would do it again! Received them in like 2 days!


    Pros

      Like how it is helping me with my adrenal fatigue !

    Cons

      None

    Great for Chronic Fatigue and Brain Fog!

    I have been challenged by chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia for 7 years now. Always looking for ways to improve my energy and clarity, I went for Cortrex by Thorne Research as well as the Royal Maca to balance out my hormones - 51 female. Together they have made a noticeable difference!


    Pros

      Easy to take. Felt a difference in about 2-3 weeks. Helped create good energy base. GREAT PRICE from Pure Formulas. Very impressed.

    Cons

      Nothing.

    Pros

      It helps give me a boost. I take it in the morning for my low cortisol problem.

    Cons

      So far o have no issues with this product.

    Cortrex Works

    My husband is anemic and was hardly functional with MDS. Not only did Cortrex by Thorne Research (recommended by our homeopathic doctor) give him more endurance but has made a difference in his blood work. It is a great go-to for anyone who is under stress which exhausts the adrenals.


    Pros

      There are stronger adrenal supplements but this is a great basic one because the price is so reasonable!

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.
