Herbs for Adrenal Exhaustion

Nerves and Stress

To choose the formula most likely to provide the support needed, think about whether the primary symptoms produce nervous irritability; a feeling of enervation, perhaps with lapses in focus or memory; small accidents caused by distraction, jitters, or carelessness; or tension. This page has herbs that support better concentration and sleep as well as a smoother flow of energy.

Holy Basil Extract, 2 oz. - Stress Reduction

Holy Basil Extract, 2 oz.
Ocimum sanctum

"Tulsi" means "the incomparable one" and holy basil is one of the most revered herbs in India. It is a rasayana herb, often used to calm, but it has the same high eugenol content of famous analgesics. Tulsi may therefore be a COX-2 inhibitor. It has also been found to lower blood sugar and cholesterol.

Alcohol: 59-61%

Contains: 1:4 extract of organically grown Ocimum sanctum leaf & flower in Distilled Water, Organic Alcohol, and Vegetable Glycerin.

Kava Kava Extract, 2 oz.
Piper methysticum

Kava or awa as it is called in Hawaii is consumed throughout the Pacific region. It tastes a bit like novacaine and is numbing. It was used before battles in Hawaii so that warriors would not be afraid of injuries. It also promotes euphoria and is thus used socially in some Polynesian cultures. It is not addictive but many people experience a slight mood elevation for up to 48 hours after consumption, usually immediately after drinking water. The effects then wear off completely. According to some kahunas, awa root will help to regenerate damaged nerve endings. There is no question but that kava kava is a nervine, but it is also a unique antidepressant due to its tendency to elevate mood through a sense of convivial happiness.

Alcohol: 54-56%

Contains: extract of organically grown Hawaiian Piper methysticum root in Distilled Water, Organic Alcohol, and Vegetable Glycerin.
