Suprarenal substance is a chemical that is made from the adrenal glands of slaughtered cows, pigs, and sheep. Adrenal glands make certain hormones. People use the extract as a medicine. It can be taken by mouth, placed under the tongue (used sublingually) or injected into the veins (given intravenously).
Used to treat:
- surgical shock
- morning sickness
By mouth, adrenal extract is used for low adrenal function, fatigue, stress, lowered resistance to illness, severe allergies, asthma, certain skin conditions such as eczemaand psoriasis, and rheumatoid arthritis.
Some people put adrenal extract under the tongue for physical or emotional stress, poor stress tolerance, general fatigue, allergies, autoimmune disorders, depression, pain and swelling (inflammation), low blood pressure, low blood sugar, drug and alcohol withdrawal, and discontinuation of cortisone drugs.
Intravenously, adrenal extract has been used for treating low adrenal function, high levels of potassium in the blood, and ulcerative colitis, and for preventing miscarriage.
Supporters say adrenal extracts boost energy, memory, and provide natural stress relief.
However, there is simply no scientific basis for “adrenal exhaustion” as a diagnosis, according to both Mayo Clinic and the NYU Langone Medical Center. Similarly, there’s no research to back up claims that adrenal extracts can help reset adrenal function.
Taking adrenal extracts could have some unintended consequences. Taking adrenal supplements that you don’t need can make your adrenal glands stop working. If that happens, it can take your glands months to start working correctly again after you stop taking the supplements.
