Do You Suffer from Adrenal Fatigue?
The adrenal glands are two triangular shaped glands that sit over the kidneys which are responsible for regulating the body’s response to stress by controlling the hormones released during stress. When stress becomes excessive or is not managed well, the adrenal glands’ ability to perform job is compromised. Cortisol is the main adrenal hormone used to manage stress. The highest amount of cortisol is secreted by the adrenals in the morning to get us going, with levels then decreasing throughout the day. The adrenals secrete cortisol in response to low blood sugar, stress, exercise, and excitement.
