WHAT IS THE JIGSAW ADRENAL COCKTAIL? The Jigsaw Adrenal Cocktail combines Whole Food Vitamin C, Potassium Bicarbonate, and Redmond's Real Salt in a unique formulation designed to support healthy adrenal gland function. Vitamin C plays a critical role in adrenal function, including their ability to produce numerous hormones. In fact, the highest concentration of Vitamin C in your body is stored by your adrenal glands. Additionally, sodium and potassium play a delicate dance in your adrenals and are both vital minerals for normal adrenal function.* WHAT ARE ADRENAL GLANDS AND WHAT DO THEY DO IN YOUR BODY? Your adrenal glands are walnut-shaped organs that sit above your kidneys. These "tiny but mighty" glands are essential to life and responsible for secreting a range of critical hormones like adrenalin, epinephrine, cortisol, testosterone, estrogens, DHEA, aldosterone and more (1).* When your faced with a great deal of stress, your adrenal glands become overworked, exhausted and dysregulated. WHAT ARE THE SIGNS THAT YOUR ADRENAL GLANDS ARE UNDER STRESS?* Bloating (water retention) Heavy caffeine use Stress Low energy Tired in the morning and more energy in the evening Poor immune system Cravings for salty foods
