(NaturalNews) Many alternative health experts consider vitamin C to be the most important nutrient for adrenal fatigue recovery. Healthy adrenal function requires vitamin C, and some of the highest concentrations of vitamin C in the whole body are found in the adrenal glands. If you`ve experienced symptoms like fatigue, depression, inability to cope with stress, or emotional instability and if you suspect adrenal fatigue is the underlying cause, vitamin C can be a vital part of your recovery process.

Vitamin C for Adrenal Support: Diet or Supplements?

Tissues throughout the body use more vitamin C during times of stress, so getting enough of this powerful vitamin is essential for keeping the body healthy in the face of stress. Vitamin C is not manufactured by the human body, so our supply of vitamin C is entirely dependent on diet and supplements. Vitamin C is found naturally in foods like leafy greens, tomatoes, citrus fruits, sprouts and acerola berries. However, most people do not get enough vitamin C for adrenal support in their diet, even when they include these foods.

Those with adrenal fatigue - or anyone dealing with high amounts of stress - may benefit from quality vitamin C supplementation. This is because vitamin C is absolutely essential for adrenal function to continue. In someone with adrenal fatigue, the adrenal glands need all the support they can get. Vitamin C will allow you to respond properly to life`s stressors and recover more quickly from them.

Tips for Taking Vitamin C for Adrenal Fatigue

- Bioflavonoids are a crucial component of the vitamin C complex. They enhance the absorption of vitamin C and improve its utilization throughout the body. Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) should be taken with bioflavonoids at a ratio of 2:1. For example, if you are taking 2,000 mg of ascorbic acid you will need 1,000 mg of bioflavonoids.

- The typical dosage of vitamin C for adrenal fatigue is between 2,000 and 4,000 mg per day, though it varies between individuals. Vitamin C is water soluble and is excreted quickly from the body, so it`s better to take smaller doses throughout the day rather than one large dose.

- Vitamin C dosage should generally be altered by only 500 mg at a time. This means that if you`d like to decrease your dosage, do so by taking 500 mg less every few days until you`ve reached the desired dose. This eliminates any side effects that may arise from increasing or decreasing vitamin C intake too quickly.
