More specifically, you want help with Morning Drink Recipe: Weight Loss and Adrenal Fatigue: Thomas DeLauer?
in order to start taking back control of our adrenals we need to understand the root of the morning drink that I’m about to make so I’m going to take you through step-by-step on why I have these specific ingredients in this drink that you can drink three times a week to help your adrenals but I want to give you a broad understanding of why I’m focused so much on sodium and potassium you see if you want to understand your adrenals you have to understand minerals it’s kind of an overlooked portion of most people are too busy thinking about cortisol and norepinephrine but in reality if we have too much sodium and not enough potassium then we have an over stimulation of the adrenals or pumping out way too much of what we don’t need and on the other hand if we have not enough sodium and too much potassium then the adrenals have diminished function where they’re not pumping out enough of what we need which is essentially adrenal fatigue at its worse so you’re going to see I break down each individual ingredient and why it’s important the first thing that I’ve got is 10 ounces of coconut water try to get unsweetened if possible the reason we’ve got coconut water is simply because it’s super high in potassium and we have to reference one study to make it a typical Thomas de Lauer video right so that one study found that in 2005 two groups of people one group of people had coconut water another group of people had regular water those that had coconut water saw a 71% decrease in their systolic blood pressure and a 29% decrease in their diastolic why does this matter with adrenal fatigue simply because when your adrenals are worn out you have so much cortisol going all the time generally speaking your blood pressure is super elevated so we do need to try to modulate that to take some of the pressure off so that’s why that’s there ok then the next step is I’m going to add a quarter cup of unsweetened cranberries crazy right the reason I’ve got the cranberries here is because they contain some really important things particularly an antioxidant known as a Pro anthocyanin what that is is a form of polyphenol that actually works in the gut lining why again does this matter who cares about the gut lining we’re talking about the adrenals well the gut lining houses so much of our immune system that if we can actually help our immune system by supporting that gut lining we can take some of the pressure again often the adrenals basically adrenals affect cortisol which does affect your immune system so if we’re able to help our immune system it means more energy for our adrenals so what I’m going to do with this is simply muddle it up and again I like to boil them first because if you don’t boil them then you’re going to end up with a really really nasty chunky drink muddle them up so you create kind of an unsweetened juice and sure you’re not going to consume all the cranberries unless you really want to so I’m adding those to the drink okay next I’ve got a quarter teaspoon of Himalayan pink salt why am I using Himalayan pink salt well if you see my videos before you know that’s because I don’t like iodized salt I don’t like the demineralization process of iodized salt I like getting nice rich minerals we’ve got 84 good minerals here 21 of which have been proven study after study to have a powerful effect on the body why do we need sodium for our drinks because when our adrenals are fatigued they’re not able to create as much aldosterone aldosterone is what’s called a mineral corticoid okay what all the starin does it helps regulate mineral balance within the body that means regulating water regulating potassium regulating sodium and if we don’t have that regulation things get out of whack so we don’t have all the Steyr and we end up craving salt and a lot of times we don’t even really need it we just crave it because they’re all the steroids out of whack this essentially can cause that water retention so if you’re someone that’s dealing with bloat you might have a skewed response with all the Steyr own and you’re taking in too much salt your body’s retaining water so just a quarter teaspoon of that then we have cream of tartar which is kind of a unique little thing cream of tartar is also known as potassium hydrogen tar trade and it’s simply a byproduct of winemaking but the reason that I have a quarter teaspoon of this stuff here is again because it’s crazy high in potassium sixteen thousand five hundred milligrams of potassium per 100 grams so we’re not getting that much in there but between the coconut water and the cream of tartar we’ve got a nice potassium rich little drink here now again this is something you’re not going to do all the time we’re talking three four times a week so you don’t want to overdo it on the potassium then the secret weapon maca all right the cool thing about maca is it’s an adapted genic root now what that essentially means is that we are able to control the hormones where they are needed the most for example an adaptogenic herb on the depo genic root it’s going to help increase a hormone that you are in its going to help decrease a hormone that you have too much in so all I did is I added a half a teaspoon to this drink basically what that’s going to do it’s going to help our hypothalamus and our pituitary to regulate what the adrenals need to modulate the most so by working with the epicenter of what’s really going to control the rest of our hormones it can really help us balance out and find that homeostasis all right now we’ve got all the ingredients combined it’s going to mix that sucker up and I will be honest with you it is a nasty looking drink and unless you want to add some stevia to it it doesn’t taste all that amazing either you don’t have to consume the chunks of the cranberries you’re getting the juice and you’re getting the polyphenols that are extracted once you muddle it a little bit if you choose to actually chew up the cranberries you totally can good for your kidneys you’re going to get a benefit there too but it does add some carbohydrates to the mix so you’re going to do this three or four times a week until you start feeling like you don’t have the low slump of energy in the morning you start feeling like you’re getting your energy back and it’s sustaining throughout the day I also recommend kicking the coffee habit while you’re doing this here we go not the best but it’ll do the done see you guys in the next video

Morning Drink Recipe: Weight Loss and Adrenal Fatigue: Thomas DeLauer
Coconut Cranberry Smoothie
– Coconut Water/Milk
– Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
– Cream of tartar
– Maca Root (powder)
Coconut Water or Coconut Milk
One side effect of adrenal fatigue is high blood pressure
A 2005 study found that when subjects were given coconut water for two weeks, their systolic blood pressure was 71% lower and their diastolic blood pressure was 29% lower than those who drank plain water.
The high potassium content of coconut water has led researchers to investigate the potential benefits for reducing cardiovascular disease risk.
It is the high levels of the specific substance proanthocyanidins (PACs) that are found in cranberries that helps the body’s immune function to ward off illness and disease.
Proanthocyanidins refers to a larger class of polyphenols – these powerful polyphenols are able to nurture the lining of the gut, where a large majority of the immune system is actually located.
Because cranberries can ward off harmful bacteria from accumulating and growing in the gut lining, healthy immune-boosting bacteria are able to thrive and create a powerful defense against sickness.
The polyphenols may help prevent the build-up of plaque on vessel walls, and the antioxidant components of cranberries are also linked to a reduction in blood pressure.
Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
It supplies an astonishing 84 unique trace minerals. There are 21 trace minerals that are widely agreed upon to be necessary for the body’s metabolic processes
Himalayan salt is mined from 200 million year-old seabeds; it is completely free of the heavy metals and other toxins that show up in sea salts harvested from today’s oceans.
When the adrenal glands are fatigued, they fail to produce adequate amounts of several hormones, including aldosterone.
Lack of aldosterone can disrupt the sodium balance at a cellular level. This can actually increase your needs for natural sodium and helps explain the salt cravings many people with adrenal fatigue experience (could explain why certain people favor salty foods more than others). (3)
Cream of Tartar
Cream of tartar, also called potassium hydrogen tartrate, is an acidic natural by-product of winemaking.
Adrenal fatigue can cause hypertension, or high blood pressure, and can lead to heart attack and strokes.
If you do suffer from low potassium, however, cream of tartar is a simple fix, packed with 16,500 mg of potassium in a mere 100 grams of cream of tartar (4)
Secret Ingredient: Maca Root (powder)
Clinical trials have shown that maca has positive effects on energy, stamina, and mood. Maintaining positive energy levels is related to having lower levels of anxiety and depression, both of which maca has been shown to positively help achieve.
Maca root is an adaptogen herb, which means that it helps only where it is needed. For instance, if your body is overproducing a hormone, it regulates it back to normal and if your body under-produces a hormone, it helps raise the level until it is balanced.
The adrenal glands are part of the endocrine system and are managed by the hypothalamus and the pituitary glands. When someone is suffering from adrenal fatigue, their adrenal glands are unbalanced causing excessive tiredness and horrible stress.
Maca root, when used consistently, has the power to nourish and stimulate the hypothalamus and the pituitary glands which in turn brings balance to the adrenal glands
