I'm sorry, I Don't know anything about the test you mention. But that Jarrows Adrenal Optimiser (?) is full of adaptogens. And, despite what they say about adaptogens, it's my experience that they work better at lowering cortisol than raising it.

Licorice, rhodiola, ashwagandha, etc they Don't suit everybody, so be carefuL Observe your reactions. And, if I were you, I'd leave it until you've got over your flu before you try and do anything.
