Solal “Burnout” – Adrenal fatigue

, , ,

Posted 27 September 2010

Solal advertises on it’s website, a product called “Burnout“.

The website claims: “Adrenal fatigue occurs when the adrenal glands, situated above the kidneys, become overworked or damaged, usually from long-term exposure to stress. As a result of being over-worked, they secrete reduced amounts of the adrenal hormones, the main ones being cortisol, aldosterone, pregnenolone, DHEA and adrenaline. The most important of these is cortisol, since when this is lowered, the body will no longer be able to deal with stress, a situation which can lead to chronic fatigue syndrome.”

The ingredients of the product are: 
Adrenal Chromium Complex™ (a proprietary complex of chromium polynicotinate, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B5) Inactive ingredients: Hypromellose (cellulose) vegetarian capsule shell (gelatine free), microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate (vegetarian – flow agent), magnesium silicate, silicon dioxide and colloidal silicon dioxide.

Here is a different point of view:

Hormone Foundation attacks two “fad” diagnoses. 

The Hormone Foundation has issued two fact sheets intended to counter two inappropriate diagnoses. The Hormone Foundation is the public education affiliate of The Endocrine Society, the largest international group of professionals that deal with hormone-related problems. 

One attacks “adrenal fatigue,” a condition allegedly caused by long-term mental or physical stress.

The other debunks the concept of “Wilson’s temperature syndrome”, an alleged thyroid disorder invented by a Florida physician who stopped practicing after he was disciplined by his state board.  http://www.hormone.org/Public/upload/Wilsons-Syndrome-Web.pdf

Both of these alleged diagnoses are claimed to cause dozens of common symptoms for which their advocates provide hormones and/or dietary supplements.

    Good day.  After receiving treatment for cancer (chemotherapy) it was noticed that i had a small tumour on my adrenal gland.  I had not been feeling well for some time when a friend introduced me to your product know an Burnout a started using it and soon i felt a lot better.  As a result of finances i have not always been able to afford it and had a gap of +- 1 month that I wasn't on it and did feel that i needed it. (only use one a day)  I purchased a bottle last month and only use it when i am feeling very tired and worn out because i have noticed that when i take it my liver hurts.  Should i stop using it as my liver is damaged because of the chemo. Thank you

    I think you all are mistaken! I have had severe burnout and could not cope with stress or the accompanying fatigue started using solal’s burnout product. Immediately I started becoming better and could slowly begin to function normally again. This product really helped me and I disagree with all the people attacking this product!

    1.5 months ago i overreacted to bad news to the point of feeling suicidal. A retrenchment from a cash-flow corrupted employer bad left me jobless and unable to claim unemployment benefits whilst seeking new work – for almost a year i was subject to uncertainty and loss and lack – I found Solal’s Burn Out by chance and after 3 weeks found that I could leave my backdoor again – start running the mornings, felt emotionally stronger to deal with the demands of a new job, able to absorb new pressures rather than be overwhelmed, which is where I ended up before I found it by chance. I hope it helps others too.

      This product contains “Adrenal Chromium Complex™ (a proprietary complex of chromium polynicotinate, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B5) Inactive ingredients: Hypromellose (cellulose) vegetarian capsule shell (gelatine free), microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate (vegetarian – flow agent), magnesium silicate, silicon dioxide and colloidal silicon dioxide.”
      You will see that some of these ingredients are NOT NATURAL! They are ALL chemicals.
