is an over-the-counter cortisol supplement that has been widely used by adrenal fatigue patients.
Up until recently, Isocort was an adrenal cortical extract (from sheep) that did not have all the hormone removed, so it contained a small amount of cortisol. In early 2011, the manufacturer switched from using adrenal cortical extract to using a proprietary blend of "fermented plant-based cortisol" and echinacea purpurea, turning it from an adrenal glandular into a plain cortisol supplement.
While there are many positive reviews of Isocort to be found online, nearly all of them refer to the old formula.
There are not many reviews yet of this new plant-based Isocort.
I have not personally used Isocort, so I cannot give a personal review. If you have any experience with Isocort, please scroll down to the bottom of the page and leave a comment!
I will say, however, that I feel an adrenal glandular
like Dr. Wilsons Adrenal Rebuilder
makes more sense to start with, as it is addressing the root of the problem and providing support and healing to the actual adrenal glands, where a cortisol supplement is bypassing the adrenal glands, and even though it does
give them a break from producing cortisol, it doesn't
give them the additional support they need to restore themselves so they can return to producing cortisol on their own.
