If you find yourself feeling burnt-out, anxious, and achy more often than you’d like to admit, then you might be suffering from adrenal fatigue. Cream of tartar drink recipes are easy to make and can help reduce your symptoms while getting your adrenals back on track. 

What is Adrenal Fatigue?

We live in a society that values hard work, but this can often translate to a lack of sleep and a reliance on substances like caffeine. When we’re exhausted, we also tend to reach for sugary foods to keep us going. Chronic fatigue may be more common than the average person realizes. In fact, over 1 million people in the United States suffer from extreme cases of chronic fatigue.  

This feeling of being exhausted or “burnt out” may be caused by adrenal fatigue, which can occur as a result of chronic stress and adrenal insufficiency. The adrenal glands, which sit on top of your kidneys, release a number of important hormones. They are also in charge of producing cortisol, which is a stress-related hormone that plays a part in regulating energy and blood sugar. It usually rises in the morning when you wake and slowly goes down throughout the day.  

When you’re feeling stressed out, the adrenal glands release cortisol, which responds to a slower immune system and a change in blood pressure. However, chronic stress or anxiety can over-work your adrenal glands so that they may not be able to produce enough cortisol. This phenomenon is called adrenal insufficiency. Adrenal fatigue is thought of as a milder form of adrenal insufficiency. That said, adrenal fatigue that goes untreated can lead to hypertension, or high blood pressure, which may lead to a heart attack or stroke. 

Common symptoms of adrenal fatigue include:

●     Chronic fatigue

●     Nervousness

●     Digestive issues

●     Body aches

●     Light-headedness

●     Low blood pressure

●     Weight gain or loss

●     Hair loss

In more severe cases of adrenal insufficiency, you may experience:

●     Depression

●     Nausea

●     Vomiting

●     Diarrhea

●     Low blood pressure

●     Hyperpigmentation


What is Cream of Tartar? 

Cream of tartar, also known as potassium bitartrate or potassium hydrogen tartrate, is an acidic natural by-product derived through the process of winemaking. Cream of tartar is commonly used in baking, as it can stabilize egg whites and whipping cream, and prevent sugar crystallization. It can also be used as a household cleaner, not unlike baking soda. 

Aside from being used in baking applications or as a cleaning product, cream of tartar is also known as an ingredient in natural remedies.

What are the Benefits of Cream of Tartar?

Because your body works by using vitamins and minerals (AKA electrolytes) to make sure your cells function properly, it’s important that your diet includes all the electrolytes your body needs. These include potassium, magnesium, sodium, calcium, phosphate, chloride, and bicarbonate. Low levels of any of these essential vitamins and minerals can result in a slew of negative effects. For example, low levels of potassium contribute to adrenal gland disorders, among other things. 

For those who suffer from low levels of potassium, cream of tartar is an easy fix. It’s packed with 16,500 mg of potassium in every 100 g. Cream of tartar has no taste, which means it’s easy to incorporate into your diet and you won’t dread having to take it.  

However, too much of a good thing can cause problems! Because of its high concentration of potassium, excessive consumption of cream of tartar can cause more harm than good. Avoid consuming it too often – aim for a maximum of once a day. In addition to this, you’ll want to discuss it with your doctor before starting a new regimen with cream of tartar.

11 Best Cream of Tartar Drink Recipes for Adrenal Fatigue

These cream of tartar drink recipes might sound a little crazy, but because the cream of tartar has no taste, your taste buds will focus on the other ingredients. You can drink these adrenal fatigue cocktails in the morning before breakfast or at night before bed. Cream of tartar helps balance your adrenal fatigue, depending on what your body needs. This means that it won’t necessarily wake you up or help you sleep, so you can take it in the morning or evening. 

Most cream of tartar drink recipes have ingredients like orange juice to provide vitamin C. This gives your liver the glucose it needs to regenerate, while the vitamin C is essential for your adrenals. The adrenal glands are where the highest concentration of vitamin C is stored in the body, and consequently your adrenals rely on vitamin C to make your hormones, including cortisol. In stressful situations, your vitamin C stores are quickly used up to make cortisol and other stress-response hormones.  

If your adrenals are fatigued and have low reservoirs of vitamin C, they overreact and release more cortisol to get your attention. Unfortunately, this flood of cortisol can throw other things out of wack if you continue to experience stress without vitamin C. 

Most recipes also call for Himalayan pink salt and full fat coconut cream. Himalayan pink salt has 84 essential minerals that help adrenals function properly. Keep in mind that this salt is very different from iodized table salt (don’t substitute it!) Full fat coconut cream is key for satiation and blood sugar stabilization. However, if you have a problem digesting fat, you can substitute for low fat coconut cream. 

To help get your adrenal fatigue back on track, try these top cream of tartar drink recipes:

1.           The Classic Adrenal Fatigue Cocktail

This recipe is all over the internet and is known as the Adrenal Fatigue Cocktail. It’s simple, yet tasty and the ingredients are likely all things you already have in your refrigerator and pantry. Why not add some cream of tartar to help treat your adrenal fatigue? 


·         ½ cup of orange juice, preferably fresh squeezed organic

·         1/4 of tsp cream of tartar

·         1/4 tsp of natural salt (Himalayan pink, Celtic gray, or other sea salt) 


Combine ingredients and drink through a straw (the straw helps pick up any ingredients that don’t totally dissolve).

2.      Pina Colada with a Twist

Who doesn’t love a good pina colada? Fresh, tropical flavors will have you dreaming of beaches and sun. 


·         1 cup of coconut water or coconut milk

·         ½ cup of pineapple juice

·         ¼ tsp of cream of tartar

·         ¼ tsp of Himalayan pink salt 


Combine ingredients, stir, and drink through a straw. If using coconut milk, combine ingredients in a blender with ice. Blend until smooth and drink cold.

3.           Keep it Simple

No fancy ingredients here! If juice isn’t your thing, or if you’re trying to lower your sugar intake, this is the adrenal fatigue recipe for you. 


·         3/4 tsp of Cream of Tartar

·         1/4 tsp of Himalayan pink salt

·         60mg of Wholefood Vitamin C

·         ½ cup of purified water 


Combine ingredients, stir, and drink through a straw.

4.           Coconut Cloud

5.      Key Lime:

·         1 cup of Coconut Cream

·         3/4 tsp of Cream of Tartar

·         1/4 tsp of Himalayan pink salt 


Combine ingredients, stir, and drink through a straw. Alternatively, add ingredients to a blender with ice and blend until ingredients are combined.

6.      Adrenal Lemonade

Summertime brings about nostalgic memories of ice cream trucks, sprinkler water parks, and fresh squeezed lemonade. Treat yourself and your adrenals to a refreshing glass of citrusy goodness! 


·         ½ cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice

·         1 cup of coconut water or water

·         3/4 tsp of Cream of Tartar

·         1/4 tsp of Himalayan pink salt

·         ½ tsp of sweetener

7.      HYAF Classic Cocktail

Nettle leaves are loaded with vitamins and minerals, especially magnesium and vitamin C. In fact, it has over 4 times more vitamin C than oranges! It’s also rich in non-heme iron, making it a great way for people with low iron to consume it on a regular basis. This recipe also includes aloe vera, which helps to soothe inflammation. Aloe vera also provides your body with a variety of minerals like selenium, magnesium, potassium, and zinc. L-glutamine is an amino acid that will repair the loose junctions in your intestine that contribute to leaky gut. L-glutamine is also a protein source that helps reduce cravings, regulate blood sugar, and limit muscle deterioration. 

In short – it’s a bit more work than the classic adrenal cocktail, but it’s worth it. 


·         2 cups of warm organic nettle tea

·         1 tbsp of aloe vera gel or juice

·         3/4 tsp of Cream of Tartar

·         juice from 1/2 a lemon

·         1/4 tsp of Himalayan pink salt 


Combine ingredients, stir, and drink through a straw.

9.      The Orange Creamsicle

Orange creamsicle is a classic summer flavor that you can now enjoy in a healthy way! The orange juice provides your body with essential vitamin C, while giving you that sweet citrus taste. The collagen provides a source of protein to regulate blood sugar and keep cravings at bay, while also providing some love to your intestinal health.

·         2 Tbsp of pasture raised collagen

·         3/4 tsp of Cream of Tartar

·         ¼ to ½ teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
