Gaspari Nutrition carved out an incredible 2013 with one of the most heavy supplement release schedules of almost any other top company.

Their last release for this period will be AdrenoCharge – a whole new category of supplement aimed at combating adrenal fatigue as well as improving stimulant sensitivity.

Gaspari AdrenoCharge Ingredients & Dosage

- Cordyceps Sinensis Extract (800mg)

- Rhodiola Rosea Extract (100mg)

AdrenoCharge is available in a 42 serve container with a recommended dose of 3 capsules per day. The directions also suggest complete abstinence from stimulants, including pre-workouts, fat burners and one would assume coffee, tea, energy drinks and soft drinks.
Gaspari AdrenoCharge Pros & Effectiveness
Gaspari AdrenoCharge definitely includes an interesting array of ingredients, some with more promise than others. Corydceps Sinensis for example has become increasingly popular as an ingredient, especially in testosterone support supplements and mental performance support supplements. A fungus commonly used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, few human studies have been performed with the ingredient, however a few animal studies have shown it to be effective in combating mental stress and fatigue – a common symptom of stimulant withdrawal. Similarly, Rhodiola Rosea is another common herb known for its adaptogenic abilities. That is, it is commonly used to support cognitive function and reduce mental and physical fatigue and exhaustion during stressful times such as with high intensity exercise or stimulant withdrawal. Phosphatidylserine and Phosphatidic acid are amino acid derivatives which have also been utilised for its ability to support improved cognition, especially in the elderly. The ingredient is also known to combat stress, especially with prolonged supplementation.
Gaspari AdrenoCharge Cons
The last two ingredients used in AdrenoCharge are confusing additions. Adenosine monophosphate can be used to produce ATP (adeonosine tri phosphate) which is our primary fuel for energy. However, few studies have shown benefits to supplementation. Similarly pantethine is basically just vitamin B5. Supplementation has been shown to assist with cholesterol lowering and it has also been used to support stress, however very few people are deficient or even close to deficiency with vitamin B5 so perhaps a more useful ingredient could have been utilised.
Gaspari AdrenoCharge Taste & Mixability
Gaspari Adreno Charge will be available in pill form, however, may be reformulated into a powder for the Australian market.
Gaspari AdrenoCharge Verdict
There are very few supplements like Adreno Charge on the market at the moment, especially for bodybuilders and heavy users of stimulant containing supplements. It seems a bit counterintuitive to use more supplements to alleviate issues caused by other supplements, but in this case, Adreno Charge could be a worthy investment. However, it’s well known that taking time off stimulants is a great way in and of itself for re-sensitizing yourself to stimulants, so it would hardly come as a surprise if this supplement worked, simply because you were abstaining from stimulant use. Regardless, if you want to ensure a smoother and less negative side effect ridden withdrawal from stimulants, Gaspari Nutrition’s latest supplement is looking like just the answer.
