6 Juices for Exhaustion & Low Adrenals

Large numbers of people suffer from fatigue that is not relieved by rest and sleep. This is one indicator that the adrenals are stressed and not functioning well. This can be one of the symptoms of long covid. Stress plays a big part in exhausting the adrenal glands. Stress also affects the liver leading to low peptic acid production. A deficiency of peptic acid causes calcium to be high. This may also interfere with protein synthesis and inhibit the replication of cells. This leads to fatigue and low blood sugar. Low adrenal function can contribute to this problem in that the adrenal glands regulate mineral levels. Mineral levels would not be abnormal if the adrenals were functioning properly. (Do not take cod liver oil if your calcium is high.)


Adrenal insufficiency is commonly associated with the following symptoms, which can vary from mild to extreme.

  • fatigue
  • decreased tolerance to cold
  • poor circulation
  • low blood sugar level (hypoglycemia)
  • low blood pressure
  • allergies
  • apathy or depression
  • low stamina
  • low self-esteem due to low energy output
  • joint aches and pains
  • low levels of gastric hydrochloric acid
  • tendency to constipation
  • muscle weakness
  • need for excessive amounts of sleep
  • fears, due to low energy and  copper toxicity
  • lowered resistance to infection
  • subnormal body temperature

Nutritional deficiencies are a common cause of tiredness and adrenal burnout. When you have stress in your life (and frankly who doesn’t?), your need for many nutrients increases. If you have a sweet tooth or eat too many carbohydrates in general, you will stress your adrenals. Also, if your diet is too low in protein, you will create deficiencies. Most people eat a diet too low in the nutrients needed by the adrenal glands. It’s important to increase the B vitamins, vitamins A, C, and E, manganese, zinc, chromium, and selenium.

Turnip Time

Turnips are rich in manganese, which is good for the adrenals. They have also been used as a traditional remedy to strengthen the lungs. To promote healthy adrenal glands and lungs, drink two 8-ounce glasses with meals daily.

  • 1 small turnip, scrubbed well
  • 2-inch-length jicama, scrubbed well or peeled if not organic (optional)
  • 1 handful watercress, rinsed
  • 4 carrots, scrubbed well, tops removed, ends trimmed
  • 1 garlic clove with peel, washed
  • 1/2 lemon, washed or peeled if not organic

Cut the turnip and jicama into pieces that will fit your juicer’s feed tube. Bunch up the watercress and juice it with the turnip, jicama (if using), watercress, carrots, garlic, and lemon. Stir the juice and pour into a glass.

Serve at room temperature or chilled, as desired. If you have weakened lungs, drink this at room temperature only; chilled drinks are too hard on weak lungs. You may want to dilute this drink with at least 1/2 cup water since the turnip juice is quite strong and distinct-tasting.
