Adrenal cocktail recipe

Our Favourite Adrenal Cocktail

When we at WKND HQ heard of an adrenal cocktail recognised for its potential to promote hormonal harmony and alleviate symptoms linked to adrenal fatigue, our interest was piqued. 

What is an adrenal cocktail?

Adrenal cocktails are a nutritional drink designed to support adrenal health and hormone balance. It typically consists of ingredients like coconut water, sea salt, and citrus juices, which are rich in electrolytes and minerals that are beneficial for adrenal function.

The adrenal glands play a crucial role in producing hormones like cortisol, which helps regulate stress responses, energy levels, and immune function. When the adrenal glands are overworked or stressed, it can lead to adrenal fatigue or dysfunction, causing symptoms like fatigue, insomnia, mood swings, and weakened immunity.

How to make an adrenal cocktail

Drinking an adrenal cocktail can provide several benefits for adrenal health and overall well-being. The ingredients in an adrenal cocktail recipe work synergistically to support adrenal function and replenish electrolytes, helping to restore balance in the body.


  1. Coconut water is a key ingredient in many adrenal cocktail recipes due to its high potassium and magnesium content, which are essential for adrenal health. Potassium helps regulate blood pressure and fluid balance, while magnesium supports muscle function, relaxation, and stress management.


  1. Sea salt, another common ingredient, provides sodium and chloride, which are important for hydration, nerve function, and adrenal hormone production. Sea salt also helps to replenish electrolytes lost during periods of stress or physical activity.


  1. Citrus juices, such as lemon or lime juice, are often added to adrenal cocktails for their vitamin C content. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that supports immune function, collagen production, and adrenal gland health. It also helps the body absorb minerals more efficiently.

OK so what are the benefits?

Drinking an adrenal cocktail regularly can help improve energy levels, support stress resilience, enhance immune function, and promote overall well-being. However, it's essential to consult with a healthcare professional before making any significant changes to your diet or supplement routine, especially if you have underlying health conditions or are taking medications.

Here's the general formula for adrenal support, it should include at least:

  • 375mg of Potassium

  • 400 – 600mg of Sodium

  • 200mg Magnesium

  • 60mg of Wholefood Vitamin C
